Marshall Coates and Rorey Garland are on top of the world--best friends and superstar athletes with millions in professional contracts just around the corner. But their lives are far from perfect. Despite loving the best thing that ever happened to him-his girlfriend, Jasmine Reynolds-Marshall is constantly faced with the shapely sirens who always seem to accompany the limelight. And Rorey has a dark secret that could destroy their friendship and his life.
In Dallas, Kennedy James is a beautiful art curator who's romantically involved with the wealthy but self-centered society climber Simpson Stone. When confronted with the dilemma of what's more important, getting what she wants or having the man she needs, she finds herself caught up in a tumultuous war of the heart. When she's offered a chance at true love with a less glamorous man will she be able to take it?
As their lives converge, which of them will manage to capture happiness? And which will fall, beautiful but doomed, like autumn leaves?
