Winning a contest for Arizona's Cutest Couple gave Samantha Clayton the idea that she and her fiance, Rance, were ready to say "I do." When the fateful day came and he instead said, "I don't," she was completely shell-shocked. Now, six months later, she's finally putting her life back together, this time with a dream to own a bed and breakfast. When her plans start to unravel, who should step in but none other than her ex-fiance's best friend, Drake Butler, a man she'd rather not ever speak to again? After all, she's sure that he's the one who convinced Rance to call off the wedding.
Drake Butler just wants to help Samantha. He still feels bad over the loss of their friendship and wants to repair it. Stepping in to prevent her from sinking her hard-earned money into a shabby building is what a good friend—and a good realtor—would do, right? Only Samantha doesn't see it that way. By the time Drake realizes that what he feels for her may be more than "like," a crisis comes up and Rance needs Samantha's help. When all is said and done, can Drake find a way to convince her that he's the right groom for her? And will Samantha see what was there all along and be willing to reach for a new dream?
