Summer flings with no strings mean nobody gets hurt.
At least, that was the plan...
After putting the brakes on her dead-end relationship, local veterinarian Ivey Anders is ready to soak up this summer on her own terms. The way she sees it, no dating means no disappointment. Why complicate life with anything long-term? But when she meets Corbin Meyer—and his troubled young son, Justin—Ivey's no-strings strategy threatens to unravel before she can put it into practice.
Trust doesn't come easy for Ivey's best friend, Hope Mage, a veterinary-clinic assistant who's affected by an incident that's colored every relationship she's had. Though Hope's happy for Ivey, she can't quite open her own heart to the possibility of love. Not just yet... Maybe not ever. Soon, however, she's faced with a dilemma—Corbin's older brother, Lang. He's charming, he's kind...and he may just be the reason Hope needs to finally tear down her walls.
And as the sweet summer months unspool, the two friends discover love won't give up on them so easily.
