At 22, Ashley Johnson swore she had her life figured out. With her #lifegoals on deck, Ashley was ready to find her Mr. Right - the one thing Ashley always seems to get wrong!

One dating mishap after another had turned Ashley quest for love into a journey from hell. When she learns she's been infected with the gift that keeps of giving, Ashley is forced to tell her new boo thang, Jamal Jenkins, whom she’s only been dating for a few months. While Jamal nonchalantly accepts her health news and while Ashley falls head over heels in love, Jamal keeps Ashley in the friend zone, unbeknownst to her. Late night visits, unanswered texts and unnecessary excuses, fills Ashley with doubt...she finally begins to question how much she actually knows about Jamal. As she begins to investigate with her intuition as her guide, Ashley learns who the real Jamal is - from a highly unlikely, yet reliable source - his fiance!

During a night of clubbing, Ashley meets the tall, dark and handsome Travis Grant, who shows a genuine interest in getting to know Ashley, that Ashley can't accept.

Full of fear, Ashley friendzones Travis until she figures out his real intentions. Travis disappoints by feeding Ashley with a few lies of his own. Ashley soon realizes that most men will hide any and everything that may jeopardize them from getting what they really want. Once you know...there's no going back.
