Kate Hayden believes she has it together-she has a great support system in her family and friends, a promotion within grasp, a closet full of designer shoes, and an ex-boyfriend who easily transitioned to a friend. More than once she has patted herself on the back for successfully avoiding unnecessary distractions from men. That's about to change. She mixes her ex-boyfriend, Josh Forrester, whose "ex" just isn't quite sticking and a secret flirtation with Ben Covney, a partner in her firm. Kate finds herself face-to-face with a disastrous situation-in-the-making. Ben's extravagant gestures are enough to fuzzy her judgment, and she ignores the warning signs as she maneuvers through the secrecy and tries to keep her friendship with Josh intact. Instead of following her best friend's advice and her annoying inner voice, Kate tiptoes the line between the old and new. When the other shoe finally drops, she's confronted with the reality of her missteps. She's surprised to find it could lead to a chance for happiness she never expected.
