Memphis and Kennedy have been best friends since college. Memphis is the consummate ladies' man, and Kennedy has been in a relationship with Ian Brooks for the past two years. Brooks has become less and less attentive, so Kennedy agrees to go to Alaska with Memphis - as friends - for work. Things quickly move out of "friend" territory.
Torn because she never officially broke up with Brooks, Kennedy returns to Vancouver early. Brooks seems penitent enough after his recent mistakes, but still Kennedy doesn't break up with him. The remainder of the book details Kennedy's decision between Memphis and Brooks.
I generally appreciate a book that deviates from the tried-and-true romance storyline, and I enjoyed this story for the most part. The length of time it took for Kennedy to ultimately decide between the two men put me off a bit, but overall the story was very entertaining.
