After three years of being a single mom, caf owner Chloe Morgan is finally ready to take another chance on love. She's found the perfect man in Joel Bradshaw. He checks all her boxes when it comes to stability, commitment, and accountability.
And then Joel's best friend, Decker Hayes, comes to town...
Decker is attractive, sexy, and great with her kid, but Decker is a self-avowed wanderer. He doesn't make plans. He doesn't think long-term. He's not someone a woman should count on. Decker is exactly the kind of man Chloe doesn't want.
And Chloe is exactly the kind of woman Decker doesn't want. Decker is not a family man. He isn't even sure what family really means. Chloe is also dating his friend, which makes her off-limits.
But as Chloe and Decker are thrown together during a house remodel and the unraveling of an old family mystery, they find themselves falling for the absolutely wrong person.
Neither one wants to risk another broken heart, but when love shows up, anything can happen...
