Mali is a character anyone who has suffered from abuse can relate to. She's terrified of becoming her parents and for most of the story avoids her own happiness in order to distance herself for what she believe with consume her. A few things didn't add up for me though, one being the stalker who texts her night after night that she doesn't tell anyone about or is even remotely worried about. "You should be out alone," should freak anyone out.
Justice is a rising football star that the story follows as he travels down the paths of deception and fame. Most of the "erotica" in this book is focused around Justice and his wanton use of women and alcohol while he struggles to move past his ex of six years and gets a grip on his future. He eventually becomes the love interest of Mali (not her stalker) but for a woman so afraid of repeating her mother's mistakes she doesn't seem to see them in Justice...
Nicole is the third point of view in the book and she's probably the most unrelated. She starts out as Justice's girlfriend and after cheating on him for a man with money and fame begins a downward spiral of drugs, sex and backstabbing. Nicole's chapters were filled with very mature themes and she seemed to make every wrong choice possible within the year.
Overall there Mali's chapters were my favorite and she seemed to be the most stable character even if unrealistic in some of her rationalizations.
