She disappeared a week before their scheduled wedding in June, and Maurice had been searching for her the entire summer to no avail. The police couldn't find any evidence to suggest that she was murdered, so they called off their search efforts. Maurice conducted his own search efforts, and the despair of being unsuccessful had taken its toll on him.
Maurice tried to get his mind off of things by focusing on his sister Erin's and his best friend and teammate Malik's wedding instead that was taking place on the last weekend in August.

He would soon discover that Gabrielle wasn't the woman he thought she was, and their inevitable meeting would have dire consequences.

However, the evening begins to unravel as Maurice finds out about a dark secret that Gabrielle has hidden from him.
He subsequently leaves her at the restaurant once the truth is revealed. He then goes to a party hosted by one of the All-Star basketball players to blow off some steam. There he meets a stunningly attractive actress and finds out that she has a huge crush on him.
Finally, Maurice caps off the evening by small talking to some of his teammates, and his best friend on the squad drops another bombshell on him. Just when the night couldn't get any worse, he discovers he's also the target of the same federal fugitive who kidnapped his stepfather a year prior.
