Being a part of one of the wealthiest families in Chicago, Jasmine Alexandria Rose has been thrown into the spotlight ever since her conception. In addition to being one-third of a set of well-known triplets, Jasmine is also the famous face of a daytime soap opera and has more notoriety than one could ever want. But it’s not the glowing lights, prestigious awards, or reigning celebrity that sends her pulse into overdrive and sizzles her flesh right down to its core. The man behind this cacophony of a conundrum is none other than her brothers’ best friend, and though she can never see her life with anyone other than him, Jasmine’s hesitation continues to stall the love that she craves.
