Effie Tremmel has a secret: she’s been in love with her best friend since they were twelve. She’s aching to tell him she loves him, but the fear of losing her best friend is enough to keep her silent.

Beckett Meyer is determined to remain single until at least thirty. As the youngest of four nosy brothers, he’s seen what love can do to a man who isn’t careful.

When a stormy night finds the friends in bed together, Beckett wakes up wishing he could erase the whole thing, and Effie’s worst fear has been realized. Is there any way to restore their friendship, or is Beckett finally ready to face that he’s in love with his best friend?
