Melanie Haynes is perfectly content living her single life. At least that's what she tells herself every day, especially when she's around her friend Noah Carlisle. They've got a good thing going as just friends, and she's far too busy with her career as an ER physician to mess with it. Not to mention the last time she let herself fall in love, her heart got ripped out and stomped on.
Noah is determined to prove to Melanie that they are meant to be together. He's waited long enough, building a solid friendship with the woman who guards her heart with walls that are ten feet high. But when his life changes in an instant, he'll need his friend in ways neither of them could have predicted.
Real feelings are not part of the agreement, but how can she keep her heart protected, when emotions become involved and just pretending to be together isn't enough?
