Oddball Mabel has always been quirky. Maybe it's due to the fact that she was homeschooled or perhaps it was because of her parents who sheltered her a little too much from the world. Whatever it is, she's determined to make her college years count, so when she meets popular football player, Jackson, she's convinced she's in love. In fact, she tells him this on their first encounter. Clearly needing all the help she can get in this department, she turns to her neighbour, who by the sound of it, gets all the action he wants. Can grieving and guarded firefighter Marcus help Mabel learn the ways of love? Or will she teach him how to live life with your heart on your sleeve?
