And what do you do when you have to face the fact that if change is what you need from them, that might happen . . . maybe, never?
Beautiful, accomplished and a little uptight, Tracy Emerson thinks she has it all figured out, particularly when it comes to the kind of man she wants to end up with. And she knows for sure that Brendan Cole is not The One. First of all, he works in the music business, with rappers no less! His lifestyle is wholly unsuitable for a long-term partner, and not at all compatible with hers. But she can't help that she's incredibly attracted to him and also can't overlook that he's always treated her better than any man ever has. So what would be the harm in spending time with him until someone more appropriate comes along? But soon Brendan's spirit and spontaneity break down Tracy's walls and have her questioning whether her criteria for the perfect man might not be all screwed up. Then, to make matters worse, as secrets and lies from her past begin to unravel, Tracy wonders whether she might not also be a little screwed up, and not at all the kind of woman Brendan would want in his future . . .

My name is Jesse Ryan. I'm thirty, single, but not officially divorced...long story...up until the summer of 2010, I was doing just fine raising my only child, Scout. I'm a construction worker--yeah, hard hat, tool belt slung low on my hips--the real deal. But that summer, I was working some out-of-state projects and I needed some help with Scout. That's when my 17 year-old stepdaughter came to Fort Smith to help out. I hadn't seen the kid since her mother had taken off on all of us four years prior. September turned out to be a very resourceful young woman, effectively ambushing my first budding romance since her mother had left us. But she didn't stop there. Shortly after her 18th birthday--and after Scout asked me if September could stay on with us, I found myself inexplicably drawn to her. Yeah, I get that there's a twelve year age difference, but despite my better judgement and solid resolve, the heart wants what the heart wants. Our relationship was discreet--not what you think by any means. I prepared to start my own business; September was preparing to start her freshman year of college when we got the news...the news that would jar us back into the start reality, and change our lives. Libby... September and Scout's mama...my estranged wife that we'd heard nothing from for more than five years suddenly surfaces. She'd been injured and now suffers from total amnesia. Now decisions need to be made, but how can I make a decision that will be in everyone's best interest?
