Hell's Kitchen, 2015. Twenty-one-year-old Tommy Mercer lived a simple life. He spent his daytime working as a mechanic at Frankie's Car and Auto, his nights hanging out with pals at the local dive bar, and Sundays at St. Francis Catholic Church followed by family dinner. It was routine, but he found comfort in routines.

When Tommy leaves work early one day after working a double for a sick coworker, he meets Bailey "Lee" Williams at the local dive. After three months of hanging out and chatting, he awakens one morning to a knock on the door. Standing at the door wearing only boxers, Tommy's informed that he was under arrest for an unimaginable crime.

His world is shaken.

Slowly but surely his friends and family abandon him as sordid tales of his misdeeds catch fire. He is sentenced to prison. He is sentenced to prison and serves four long years inside. When he comes out, he is a changed man. Depressed. Resentful. But more importantly, confused.

All while trying to sort through his emotions and figure out what happened to land him in prison in the first place, Tommy must also find work as part of his prison release program. But in the process, he finds something he never anticipated... Angie Romero.

The brash, whip-smart single mom with the big smile, doe eyes, and a large crown of brown curls takes his breath away the very first time his eyes land on her.

Caught between reconciling his past and forging his new future from the ashes, Tommy must decide whether love is worth the risk of dredging up the past and putting Angie's job and reputation in danger.
