Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime. He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington's, and he lost the other more recently... to his brother. And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both. Amazingly, without therapy. That doesn't mean Brian hasn't gotten more wary along the way, however. In fact, he's been thinking lately that maybe his brother's now retired nothing-but-flings rule isn't such a bad idea.
Connor's back. Just when Abby's life seems all but perfect, the infuriating man comes charging back in to wreak havoc on her emotions once again. And in typical Connor fashion, he has yet another proposal for her. But instead of a wild and fast fling, he's proposing...forever. Brian's not giving her up without a fight. Normally the tame one of the pair, Brian is holding nothing back in the battle for Abby's heart. He has a decade-long head start in knowing and loving everything about Abby - but is that enough to break the intense hold his brother has on her heart?
Abby Bartlett is well aware that everyone thinks she's in love with her best friend, Brian. He is, after all, the type of man a nice girl should be with-the polar opposite of the bad boy-the kind of guy who didn't let his wife's decade-long illness stop him from showering her with a lifetime of love every second until her dying day. Yes, Brian has been the yardstick against which Abby has measured all other men. But everyone's wrong; she couldn't possibly be in love with him.
