Reno swears revenge over his coward father, but love keeps getting in the way.
Reno Kanaloa Kent leaves his home in Hawaii to search for the father who abandoned him, his sister and mother for money. When he gets to New York he finds Lisette his father's goddaughter. His intention was to use her to get closer to him, but he didn't think he would end up falling in love with her.
Lisette finds out the man she loved only wanted to use her to get to the Kent family. At first she is angry but she feels hurt when he breaks up with her.
Reno leaves New York to look for his missing sister, but only comes back when he finds out Lisette was involved in a car accident. It is then when he starts to realize what is more important in his life, his love for Lisette. Although he feels like he is betraying his lost sister, Reno finds it hard to give up the woman he has in front of him for a sister he doesn't know whether or not she is dead or alive.
“Do you want to go out with me tonight?” Reno asked.
Lisette stared at him, sure he was going to take back his offer, or tell her that he was just joking. But he seemed serious. Lisette smiled and almost said yes, but then a thought came to mind.
“Is this a pity date?”
“You told me to leave you alone.”
“But now you are asking me out?”
“Do you always answer questions with one or two words?”
“Fine. I’ll wait for you here.” Reno backed away from the car and turned toward the locker room without saying a word. He was strange and Lisette thought he was getting stranger with each encounter they had.
Lisette had been keeping her eyes glued to the road and her knuckles were turning white from how hard she was holding the steering wheel. She waited until they were stopped at a red light to sneak a peek at him. He was beautiful, his black hair still damp from his locker-room shower, his haircut somehow looking like a Mohawk, his dark skin peeking out of his white, flannel shirt, sleeves pushed up to mid-arm, and blue jeans tight enough for her to see how strong his thigh muscles were. He was delicious. She heard him clear his throat and Lisette’s gaze went back to his face. Her hormones distracted the rest of her body so much there was no nerve left for her to feel embarrassed she’d been caught checking him out.
