Keely Sheridan has been in love with Nick Fallon since high school, but he's always treated her as a friend. Other than one night of wild sex at their high school graduation party, Nick has kept his distance from her.
Nick is very much aware of every luscious inch of Keely's body. No matter how much he wants her, he refuses to get involved with her due to the turmoil in his life.
When Nick is hurt while fighting a house fire, Keely is first in line to offer help. He can no longer deny his feelings for her and gives in to the sweetest lovemaking he's ever experienced.
Wanting to help the man she loves, Keely does something behind Nick's back he cannot forgive. He has to push aside his anger and pride before he and Keely can have the future together they both want.
