When Jase and Emily are continually thrown together as wedding attendants, long-buried resentments, miscommunications, and attraction bubble up until a one-night stand becomes a red-hot affair that cools considerably once they actually face their painful shared past.

Jase Foster and Emily Klein are good friends to everyone but each other and usually the tallest in a crowd—so naturally they are both highly sought-after wedding attendants in their overlapping social circles, and they're usually paired together. Because of a shared experience in their past—involving his high school best friend who was her boyfriend—they are definitely not friends, though there's always been a spark between them. When two friends need their help planning a wedding more quickly than expected, they are forced to spend time together, and, in an explosive moment that flashes from irritation to begrudging understanding, they give in to a long-standing attraction they've never allowed themselves to explore.

A hot kiss leads to a one-night stand they'll use to get over it, though they never quite do. Giving in to their physical attraction and emotional rapport, the two fall into a relationship that may be love—until a series of events makes it clear that they are both holding on to some emotional baggage from their high school days, and they'll have to clear the air before they can truly be happy. The romance spans a year before Jase and Emily get it right and is an intelligent, perfectly balanced combination of humor, emotion, and sexual tension. With outstanding writing, impressive characterization, and plotting that both gratifies and surprises, Kelly proves that she's an author to watch. Sweet and sexy: a witty, smart, and romantic love story.
