Jase VanDam relocated into a new house in an attempt to maintain anonymity. As the owner of chain bakery store A Real Sweetie, he's tired of being chased after by people who only have his money in mind.

But Ali's had it with lies. When she finds out the truth, she wants nothing to do with Jase. She breaks it off with him and vows never to see him again, even though this means giving up the lucrative promotions account of her dreams with his company.
When disaster strikes one of Jase's bakeries, they must find a way to establish trust in their relationship before their love can lead them to the hope of a future together.
