Affected by her parents’ highly publicized divorce, Isabel grows up isolated and alone, with a resolve to never fall in love and repeat their mistakes.
When Jesse Cain enters her life, she falls hopelessly in love with him, and every sadness she’s ever felt is washed away by his intensity and passion. But people change as they grow up. Things can never stay the same forever.
Jesse and Isabel fight to stay together, determined to hold on to what they once had. Isabel wonders if a second love can ever be enough to make her forget her first.
Can one truly forget a first love? Sometimes we are lucky enough in life to be loved by more than one special person. I have always believed that the right people are in your life for a reason. That sometimes, it's better not to question how things are and instead focus on reveling in what's here and now. The future will always play out. It's unavoidable and inevitable. You may not always make the right choice, but you will always get a second chance to fix it.

“I’m going to spend every night of my life kissing away your memories of him. I’m going to find places he never touched, places he never kissed and our first times will be a thousand times sweeter than your first times with him. Isabel, you are the love of my life.”
