Chocolate Burnout: Chocolate 4 Reed is the story about a successful, single African-American woman who has given up on romance to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a master chocolatier.

Chantel's best friend Astrid, a prosperous, single White woman who sacrificed relationships to conquer her dream job as a certified chocolatier, is the owner of Sweet Indulgence, one of the most popular chocolate shops in Downtown Seattle. Chantel drifts back and forth between her obsession with chocolate, and her obsessive-compulsive desire to find the perfect romance. After the sudden death of their close friend Allison, Chantel and Astrid start to drift apart. Astrid dives into her chocolate business, while Chantel engages in mortifying; the oldest sister, Daria, the family's maternal figure, is prickly and controlling; and she finally breaks up with her slacker boyfriend, Cameron after she finds him cooking dinner for another woman in her apartment. Astrid has a sweet plan concerning how Chantel should move on after the breakup. Chantel, who has always dated Black men, is initially hesitant when Brandon, a White guy, asks her out. She quickly falls for him, and they come close to marriage despite the push back and racism from both sides of the family.

But when Brandon and Daria team up together and ask an attractive Black man to test Chantel's loyalty, her trust in everyone is shattered.

Serenity's bizarre healing attempts, causes Chantel to seek out her own therapy and believes that her newfound chocolate healing therapy ignites more joy than romance ever could. Chantel knows that eventually she will have to ditch her chocoholic addiction and face her life, even if she must dig deep into her past and prod into Allison's death, to heal.

But for now, Chantel is testing how far she can go before her chocolate burnout, sets in.
