She can't stop thinking about the team back in Vegas, about her godfather, Gil Grissom but most importantly, she couldn't stop thinking about Greg Sanders and how much she had hurt him, even though he had told her that he forgave her but she couldn't find it in her to forgive herself. She had sworn that she would never break Greg's heart, but she had. She had broken a promise to the one person she cared about more than anything in the world. Would she ever be able to find the strength to forgive herself? Could she ever redeem herself for the pain she had caused? Her and Greg are put through more challenges and hardships. And Leila has one more secret to reveal to the man she calls her soulmate, as well as the people she calls family. Can their relationship survive? Can they survive?
