Hailey Bloom has been a movie star and a recording artist since she was a child, but has finally torn herself away from her controlling, manipulative, fame hungry mother and is pursuing her own dream of going to college. Not one of the really big famous ones, where she might still get lots of attention, but a small one in Vermont. She wants to stay out of the limelight, manage on her own and discover what she actually wants to do with her life. She’s finding college more difficult than expected, and several of her professors seem to just be waiting for the spoiled teen starlet to fail. She’s not having an easy time making friends.
She meets hunky Caleb Fox at a party, and he seems completely unphased by her fame. While Hailey doesn’t really want any romantic entanglements, after a few run-ins with him, it’s obvious that she can’t stay away. His friends and room mates are handsome, charming and good natured, and welcome Hailey into their circle happily. Caleb’s younger sister also proves to be both a good friend to her, and helps her out with tutoring so she can actually pass all her classes. But Hailey knows that her mother is unhappy about her decision to break away, and fears she may contact the press with juicy secrets that might make Hailey’s life difficult indeed. Will Caleb still love her if he finds out her deepest, darkest secret?
