Faye Summers decides that casual dating is the way to go to ensure she's fully healed from her last breakup. When Ray Thackery, her best friends' boss, asks her out, she agrees--but only if they keep it quiet. She doesn't want the complications that may arise with her best friends' working relationship with Ray if their fling ends up in a sour note.

Ray Thackery has kept his feelings for Faye hidden for so long. Now that she is single again, he is determined not to miss this chance to make her fall for him. He's not interested in a casual-only affair. Not with Faye. He wants more than that with her.

Their relationship, beautiful and passionate when it started, quickly arrives at the crossroads. How can it survive when the two people involved have very different intentions?
