This series contains examples of:

  • Dark and Troubled Past: And not just one..
    • Samantha being pressured by her parents to pursue a career that she didn't want and being forced to marry Clyden for connections. Everything goes fine after her engagement not until her half-sister and the one who pushed her to become a model, Naomi, killed herself. She can't even grieve properly because she has to deal with her parents being insensitive and Clyden's parents putting an end to her engagement with their son. She still has to live with the guilt of not being there for her sister after some times have passed and she sacrificed her relationship with Clyden two times before they finally got together.

    • Kierra being abused by her former boyfriend, Miguel, and Luna being absolutely horrified once she found out what Kierra is going through after numerous attempts of denying that nothing's wrong with her relationship with Miguel.
    • Elyse's father taking advantage of Sevi's mother and sexually harassing her, resulting in her getting pregnant because of it. This was one of the reasons why Sevi and Elyse decided to put a stop to their five-year relationship.
