College freshman Jamie Cameron and her brother Luke attended the same university---which is why she didn't understand why he was avoiding her. That is, until she met his teammates on the basketball team. Most of them were notorious for their hook-ups and bad boy ways, and Luke had wanted to keep his beautiful sister far away from them.
Jamie is safe from their advances until one of them, Chase Reston, offers to walk her back to her dorms late at night. The connection between the two of them is intense. Although she quickly develops strong feelings for him, Jamie doubts that a notorious player like Chase would be interested in someone who wasn't ready to be in a sexual relationship. But Chase surprises not only Jamie, but everyone else, by his patience.
As the basketball season progresses, Chase has a breakout year and he moves from being an unknown college athlete to one with agents, first class travel and media attention. When Jamie accompanies Chase to the NBA draft, the cameras linger on her striking good looks, and she creates a media frenzy of her own. They leave New York as celebrities and lovers.
Their new lives, while filled with excitement and fame, begins to fray the bonds between them. The constant travel and sometimes cruel public scrutiny takes its toll and Jamie finds herself susceptible to rumors of Chase's infidelity. She accuses him of cheating on her, and rather than deny it, Chase uses this as an excuse to push her away. Jamie leaves him.
Indulging in some payback, Jamie attends a party where she meets Sean Foley, a rock musician whose celebrity status eclipses anything she has experienced before. Although she is turned off by Sean's excessive drinking and open promiscuity, the intensity of his feelings for her is hard to resist.
Eventually Jamie has to decide whether to hold on to her first love or trust someone new...
