She escaped the doubt, and he embraced the moment. Shifting apart then shifting together. Could they finally emerge into forever?
One secret broke his trust, which led to both of their heartbreak. They both learned that sometimes love just isn't enough. Until now.
Nothing with them had ever been simple and coming home to right his wrong would be no different. Josh was prepared to say or do anything to fix his mistake and mend what he had broken between them. He wasn't expecting to find out his worst nightmare had come true. As usual, though, not everything is as it seemed.
Riley was slowly spiraling into a dark hold of loneliness and despair without Josh. Rebuilding walls he had once broken down, pushing away everyone around her. One self-destructive mistake left her unguarded and vulnerable causing her past to slam into her present with painful force. Destroyed by Josh's assumptions then given hope by his reassurance, she climbs out of the dark and back into his arms.
Enough was enough and communication was key. No longer hiding behind walls and past screw-ups, they fight like hell for what they want. One another. Always wanting more.
Apart they are a mess, but together they are music.

It’s been awhile since their unfortunate break up as neither are past each other. Trust has always been an issue and it is still is.
Riley is headed in a downward spiral drinking to ease her pain just like her father. Will she be able to move forward or end up in a tragic end like her dad at the rate she is going?
She goes to a party with her best friend that she really does not want to attend and watching her friend being happy with her friend, she gets drunk. Running away from the pain, she ends up outside and falls down. To her rescue is Dean who helps her up and offer to drive her home.
Riley thinks it is Josh for a moment and kisses him and Preslee catches the moment on her camera and sends it to Josh. In the meantime Preslee eggs Dean to have sex with Riley as he always wanted as he ends up taking her back to his place. He lets her sleep for awhile while he keeps thinking of her. Dean finds himself in bed with her and touching her. The more he touches, the further he goes almost raping her until her phone goes off as the damage is done.
Turns out it was Josh who saved her once again telling her that her mom is about to deliver. The baby that will make them step siblings due to their parents one night stand. Like their life could not be anymore complicated.
Dean the next morning blames what happen was due to his drinking as he admits he has a letter from Josh since Valentine telling her how much he still and always love her. If only she had gotten the letter, she would not be in this position. No one would believe her about the attempt rape; especially, after her drunken behavior and that Dean was her ex boyfriend as well as the picture of them kissing which he shows her. Blaming her for ruining all their loves and what if he was the first one to meet instead of Josh, the first day she moved in.
As they work their way back to each other among the obstacles thrown at them, will they be able to find their happy ever after? Can these teo best friends be able to have more than friendship without hurting one another. Can their music to each other be their star that bonds them forever?
