Maneuvering through emotional minefields rates a 10 for difficulty level, particularly when Angie lives the maxim: Time does not heal all wounds. And Jake? Check the Wiki pic next to Pride comes before the fall. Yep, that’s him tripping all over himself year after year.

Do any of you remember your first crush or high school sweetheart? Did you marry him or her? I remember mine, but sadly, never married him. But, that didn’t stop me from fall head over heels for Angie and her high school sweetheart! Actually, it goes back to middle school for them. Jake’s crush on Angie started in middle school and never let up. Little did he know, she felt the same but was playing that “hard to get” woman.

Problem is, she’s in love with him too, and finally gives in to his question of dating him. It’s floating-air-happiness for them both…..until the deceit enters the picture. A lie that one of them tells leaves them both heart broken and going separate ways.
Then, through the love of family and friends, Angie and Jake are reunited years later after bouts of unsuccessful relationships for them both, and it’s love at first sight all over again. But, will the lies stay away this time? Can Angie and Jake risk their hearts to each other once again?
