Rebecca Hilton and Casey Shipley have been friends since college. She loves that he’s dependable and loyal, but that doesn’t make him dating material for her.

When she shows up unexpectedly at his family’s ranch, he’s thrilled to see her. But he soon realizes she has eyes for his brother. His well-built, ruggedly handsome brother. Since he wants her to be happy, he agrees to help her get close to his brother.

But as clues start mounting up that Casey might be her soulmate, Rebecca starts to wonder why she and Casey never even kissed. And he looks back on their past with regret that he never let her know how he felt back in their college days.

Will Casey get a second chance to win the woman he knows is his forever love? And is Rebecca willing to see if their friendship is really something more?
