Ne’Vaeh Washington attends Howard University, where her burning desire to be with Aaron Whitehaven, her best friend’s boyfriend, prevents her from living her life to the fullest. Unbeknownst to her, Aaron feels the same way.
While Ne’Vaeh’s best friend, Charlene Campbell, is out of town attending a funeral, Aaron confesses that he has been in love with Ne’Vaeh for nearly three years. He has kept it a secret until now because he believed that she was still in love with Jamie Green, her first love, who left her brokenhearted.
Charlene’s relationship with Aaron has always been rocky. Her reputation for sleeping with just about anyone with a pulse preceded her, and now Aaron has stopped paying her any attention. A trip to Miami turns into a reunion with her old friend Jamie Green, a college football player about to go pro. The problem is that no matter what happens between him and Charlene, Jamie hasn’t forgotten about Ne’Vaeh.
