Seriously, who does this to people they “love”??
Ben and Kate’s budding relationship is told through the relatable, raw and unfiltered exchange of text messages. As they each are moving on from disappointment and heartbreak, Ben struggles to amicably part ways with Amanda who goes to psychotic lengths to defend her place in his life.
Meanwhile, Kate struggles to maintain a friendship with her childhood soulmate. He inevitably destroys her trust in love, along with her family relationships all while maintaining his deceitful and influential place in her life.
Ben comes from a troubled past left to raise himself from a very young age. His mom, an alcoholic drug addict brought abusive men in and out of his life regularly. After witnessing more than a child ever should ever see, Ben has now become an independent materialistic adult with little regard for relationships. He’s learned very quickly how to manipulate people and situations to his advantage providing him the” finer” things he was denied as a child. Although love is something he has always admired from afar, it’s not something he has ever experienced.
Kate grew up in the perfect suburb, in a beautiful home on a golf course. With both parents intact, they were familiar faces at their local church with a meticulously maintained family exterior. The exhausting effort of maintaining a perfect outward appearance, left little for their father to give to his 3 daughters. Kate’s loving mother, who opted to home school to maintain their innocence, tried to compensate for their father’s emotional absence.
Once Kate left home, she was in immediate shock of the world around her. Stealing and manipulation were not things she had ever been introduced to.
Meeting Ben allowed Kate to see life is not always roses and picket fences. She slowly starts understanding what life is all about. Through his delicate relationship with Kate, Ben slowly learns how to reverse everything he has ever known into self-control, trust and finally love.
