As a teenager, Ellie became pregnant and planned to marry the father of her baby, but he was killed in an accident before their plans could come to fruition. Later, she met someone else. Again, she became pregnant, but a stupid prank landed him in prison. Then she made her biggest mistake. Frustrated, working two jobs and trying to raise two children, the loves of her life, she accepted a marriage proposal. Within two days after the wedding, she knew it was a mistake. She divorced him after three months. He contested the child custody, which he was awarded temporarily for ninety days, even though he was not the children’s father. Her last job, in which she was a stripper and the fact that the judge was one of the men she rebuffed during that time made matters worse. Now she has ninety days to get a good job and prove that the children should be with her.

As they work together and try to keep their distance, the deeper they fall for each other. According to Ellie’s plans, as soon as she gets her children back, she is leaving town. Will she be able to leave Noah? Will her children be safe until she can get them back?
