In love and life, nothing is ever as it seems.
He is a broken man. Suffering from heartache from a bad engagement, Dean Williams swears off relationships and people in general. His best friend, and big time lawyer, Max O'Brian is the only one keeping him sane, but even he won't let Dean escape from the memory of his lost love, Anne. He's convinced he's not over her.
When Kate, a new arrival to the city, walks into their weekly coffee shop, Dean is instantly drawn to her. She can't help but feel the same, but she'll soon find herself having to make a decision between her morals and her self-preservation. When she falls in love with him, will she tell him the truth? Either way, she's going to hurt him. She doesn't have a choice. Exposing the truth would put her own life in jeopardy, but she's not the one calling the shots.
