Wesley Cooper thinks happily-ever-afters are a crock and has, in fact, spent his life avoiding women who might expect one.
Except for a handful of childhood friends, Wesley has never wanted to get close to anyone. Not since he was eight years old anyway. And when he’s forced into a situation where he has to start dating-but-not-dating an old acquaintance, he is far from happy. She’s not his type. It is curious though, how many things they have in common. And that he actually enjoys spending time with her. But not in a boyfriend/girlfriend kind of way. Nope. They’re just friends.
Lainey Lawson has always believed in fairytale endings, she’s just not sure Mr. Right exists. At least not for women like her.
Most days, Lainey feels like a confident, successful woman. She’s got a great job, a healthy bank account, and has visited places others can only dream about. Sometimes though, hidden in a lonely place in her heart, she longs for someone to share her life. Part of her wishes that man could be her matchmaking cousin’s future brother-in-law. Another part knows he would never look twice at her.
