Rafe Williams had a hard life growing up but found falling in love with Nikki has made him want to be a better man. But trouble with his restaurant will tempt him into becoming the man he hated — his father.

Alice, another close friend of Lilly who also happens to be Drew’s younger sister, didn’t think of the hardship that an early marriage would bring. Against her father’s wishes, she married Tony Collins, a struggling performer who sings in a band and plays in night clubs. Tony only dreams of making it big until he soon finds out that being married holds a great deal of responsibility.
