Kate Reynolds has two loves in her life—her daughter and her coffee shop—and that's all she wants or needs. She's learned the hard way that you can't rely on a man to be there when it counts, and she's determined to do it all on her own. But when her lifelong friend, rugged crooner Mackenzie Winters, agrees to be the music act for her grand opening, the last thing she expects is for feelings she's denied her whole life to resurface.
Mack is on the fast-track to seeing his dreams come true. With a growing audience and demos out to record labels, he knows he can make it big—if he can just stay focused. Experience has taught him that to get what he wants he has to keep his eye on the prize. Trouble is, his eyes keep wandering to the one woman he needs to avoid at all costs. He's been in love with Kate as long as he can remember, but the last thing he wants to do is hurt her.
The more time they spend together, the harder it is to fight their feelings. They both know they can't give the other what they need. Their paths are just too different. But the longer they keep playing at love, the worse it will hurt when the game is over.
