But when she meets Kaleb Myles (Courtney Burrell), a charming and charismatic man who checks off nearly all her boxes, she’s forced to reconsider her typical standards as she discovers that he falls short of a critical characteristic on her list – being single. With the help of her friends, Mahogany must decide if she will stick to her preference of being the one and only – or step out of her comfort zone and learn to play number two.
