Jake Taylor had it all. California good looks, popularity, star athletic skills, and the hottest girl on his high school campus. Then, the tragic death of his childhood friend turned his life upside down and challenged him to make a difference in the lives of lonely, hurting teens.
Now, having graduated from high school with a newfound faith and a basketball scholarship, Jake heads to Louisville to begin life as a college student. But in doing so, he must leave behind his long-time girlfriend Amy Briggs and the supportive influence of his mentor and friends.
Separated by thousands of miles, Jake and Amy find their lives moving in very different directions. Befriending a young girl with a traumatic secret leads Amy back to the father who had abandoned her. Jake’s position on the Louisville basketball team lands him in the midst of parties, beautiful women…and one choice that will shake him to the core. When everything he believes is challenged, Jake begins slipping away from his faith–and into the lifestyle he thought he’d left behind. Will Jake’s struggle cost him his relationship with Amy? Will he succumb to everyone’s expectations or stand alone for what is right?
