Danielle “Danny” St. Cloud is a genius in the tech field, but her love life isn’t so polished. The closer she gets to thirty, the more anxious she is to kiss the dating carousel goodbye and settle down with a real one. She’s had her heart set on Karon Harris since he walked into her statistics class and sat beside her. He was six feet three, dreaded, fine as frog hair, and desirable enough to have any woman on campus he wanted. Despite how his presence disrupts the rhythm of her heartbeat, she wouldn’t dare risk a decade of friendship, leaving her permanently in the friend zone. When a work trip lands her in the arms of another, she returns to Atlanta with a ring on her finger and her best friend’s older brother on her arm.

Karon Harris is a known southern playboy with the name heartbreaker tattooed on his reputation. After almost thirty years of playing the field, he’s tired of the game and ready to hang up his jersey. None of the women on his roster seem worth going the extra mile for, except Danny. In all the years they’ve been friends, he’s never thought about laying a finger on her, but seeing her in the arms of his brother, Kairo, ignites feelings he doesn’t like. The ATL skirt chaser soon realizes there’s more to his friendship than he thought.

An impulsive kiss leads to a gut-wrenching love triangle, proving there’s a thin line between friendship and family. Falling in love with Danny could unravel their friendship, but losing her to his brother might be more than he can bear.
