Piper Stevens had already met-and lost-the love of her life. When she buried her husband, she buried her chance for a happily ever after...but also found a shoulder to lean on in Nate. As a commitment-phobe womanizer, Nate Hall has never had a female as a friend, but he made a promise to his buddy before he passed. Take care of Piper. And these days? He can't imagine his life without her. Now, a year later, things Piper thought were long gone are beginning to come back. Like her previously healthy libido. Except she can't picture dating someone in her husband's place, nor can she sleep with a stranger either. So, she turns to Nate. After all, he's the perfect choice. He's her friend but also a player. He cares about her but they'll never fall in love...and she won't get hurt. Not like she did when she lost her husband. But can two friends give their bodies without involving their hearts and things turning nasty?
