Brooke Nichols spent her entire childhood bouncing through states, school districts and more than a few of her parents' ill-conceived "adventures." Now, she's finally found some stability. Engaged to a gorgeous, gainfully employed businessman—who always calls when he says he will—Brooke is eager to settle down once and for all. No alarms, no surprises.
Certainly, she would never consider a relationship with someone like her fiancé's best friend, firefighter Jake McBride. With his frequent footloose jaunts and a career that involves leaping into dangerous situations, Jake is everything Brooke's fiancé is not: raw, spontaneous and passionate. But passion isn't everything…is it?
As Jake keeps pushing Brooke's boundaries, and her buttons, the girl who hates surprises might just end up surprising everyone, especially herself.
