Stacey Jackson is entering her senior year at Howard University. To the outside world, she’s got the perfect life: brains, beauty and popularity, a loving family, not to mention a handsome basketball player boyfriend, Patrick. But all is not what it seems, especially when it comes to her relationship with Patrick. Stacey wants to leave the relationship but Patrick’s holding a secret over her head and before she knows it, more problems arise within their already troubled relationship. At the same time, Stacey’s long-time crush, Ronnie Morgan, enters the picture.
Ronnie is the drop-dead gorgeous co-captain of the Howard University basketball team and aspiring singer. Stacey’s had a thing for Ronnie since she first saw him their freshman year. Unbeknownst to her, Ronnie has had his own crush on her also. When Patrick goes home the summer before their senior year, Stacey realizes “God definitely has a sense of humor,” because Ronnie starts making his moves. Stacey resists Ronnie’s advances for months but after spending an innocent evening together, she gives into her longtime desires.
Despite her current relationship, Ronnie feels that Stacey is a safe bet for “no drama” but he has no idea what’s really going on between she and Patrick. He tries to be supportive of Stacey’s decision to stay with Patrick but soon, enough’s enough. When Stacey doesn’t break up with Patrick after an ultimatum, Ronnie ends their relationship. Will Stacey let her secret, tear her new relationship apart before it gets a chance to blossom?
