After her latest ill-fated attempt to find a forever relationship of her own, Tori Kennedy is content with connecting the dots for others, bringing them together in pursuit of lifetime love. Fresh off of the demise of her marriage, she decides to take advantage of an opportunity to do something a little — okay, a lot — crazy, and heavily fueled by an overload of emotions.
Thinking that her impulsive decision and its disastrous results are behind her, Tori moves forward with her pursuit of a happily single existence, until her best friend contacts her with a request that places a constant reminder in her life : Avery.
Avery Anderson is the epitome of “the kind of guy your momma warned you about.” Handsome, successful, charming… and not at all interested in being roped into anything that resembles love. Tori ending up in his bed doesn’t surprise him at all — it’s just what he does— but his feelings afterwards? That’s another story. An ultimatum placed on him by his little sister puts him back in arm’s reach of the pretty matchmaker that he can’t get off of his mind, but she’s not taking the bait this time.
Tori just wants to be rid of him so that she can move on with her life, and it’s not Avery’s style to chase someone who doesn’t want to be caught. When both parties are content to let the spark flicker out, can love — or something like that— still lead the way to forever?
After a rejection from a long-time crush throws him off his game, Brandon Jensen decides that maybe it’s time to start a new one, with the beautiful Nadia Clark on his team.
She’s just right for what he has in mind. Quiet and laid back, while still being undeniably energetic and appealing. But there’s a reason behind Nadia’s reserved nature. She’s starting over, and while something casual with Brandon seems like a nice distraction… it’s just that. A distraction.
Neither of them went into this thing — whatever it is — looking for the type of unspoken connection that they find. Nadia is just trying to a build a life, and Brandon isn’t interested in chasing a commitment…until it starts to slip away.
