Portia "Peaches" Jackson can't seem to catch a break. It's hard enough being a woman of plus size stature in a skinny world while trying to prove to the world that you have what it takes to be beautiful, successful, and ambitious. It's no wonder why her heart crumbles after her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Mase comes to an unexpected end. However, like any other strong woman, Peaches has to put her dreadful past behind her; which is exactly what she aims to do when she goes to California to pursue a career in modeling. Some people call California the "land of dreams", but it quickly becomes the substance of nightmares for Peaches. Although she is accompanied by her new love Geremy who is handsome, genuine, and shows her that good men do still exist; something still is not right. Things are quickly turning out for the worse as drama continues to plague her and unravel the seams of her life that she had so carefully woven back together. Once getting her feet wet in the industry she finds out that her new life holds more secrets than the one she left behind. Peaches is determined to be successful and laugh in the face of those that doubted her. Will she reach her goals with the man of her dreams by her side, or will forces beyond her control doom her to become just another casualty of a love gone wrong?"
