Tessa Dupree has given up on men, and has sworn off them forever. Worse than that, she has given up on love. But life has a way of throwing you a curve ball when you least expected it.
Celebrating a sports victory in a local pub with her friends, Tessa meets Peter and is instantly decimated by her attraction to him and by the fantastic, earth-shaking sex she shares with him in the pub’s parking lot. Sadly, she realizes that she forgot to get Peter’s phone number in her rush to escape when a police officer interrupted their bliss. Now she has no way to contact Peter.
With Peter temporarily inaccessible, Tessa is stunned to discover that she’s falling in love with her best friend. She’s known Rob since sixth grade and not once had she thought of him sexually, let alone romantically. Now she’s on fire for him, and realizes that he has been the invisible standard she has graded all men on, a standard that made them all sub-standard.
Attending a party to welcome Rob home from his overseas tour of duty, Tessa bumps into Rob’s friend Mitch. When he informs her that he is the cop that interrupted her and Peter in the parking lot, Tessa is mortified. When he confesses his attraction for her, she is stunned to realize that her attraction to him is as great as the attraction she feels for Rob and Peter.
Much to her surprise, Mitch declares his intention to court Tessa, even though his friends are also chasing her heart, and Tessa is stunned. Mitch and Rob reluctantly agree to the twisted three-way competition for her heart, but Tessa finds she is unable to choose between them.
But when push comes to shove, they work together and find a compromise, all way for all of them to stay with Tessa and share her loving and generous heart.
