My one job in this is to mess with McCarthy’s head and all it has done is mess with mine.

Presley McCarthy lives in the shadow of her twin brother, Trevor. After being separated when their parents divorced, all Presley heard about was Levi Carr being a bully to Trevor. Now in college, Presley is trying to be her own person, but when she meets Levi Carr, it all changes. But will the changes be good or bad?

Presley’s only dream has been to go to law school. That goal has remained strong, and she's still trying to focus on that goal, even though Presley has fallen in love with Levi. He’s off playing hockey and now she has to deal with Levi being gone and having to wait almost a whole year to be with him again. Until there’s a change in plans.
