Flirting with romance is a dangerous game!

Kayla and Jack are coworkers and friends. Their relationship is fun and easy, and despite being of the opposite sex, there’s no sexual tension. Well, mostly. Kayla is attracted to Jack’s good looks and charming personality, but so is everyone else. She’d rather be his friend, than among his many admirers.

Jack has a dilemma. His parents are visiting for the holidays and want to stay with him, which would put a serious damper on his sex life. Not to mention, he’ll be subject to his mother’s disappointment that he has no interest in settling down. Suddenly, Jack formulates an idea, and it involves Kayla.

At first, Kayla is shocked at Jack’s proposal to move in with him. Even more surprising, he wants her to play his pretend girlfriend for the next six weeks. If she weren’t having trouble with her roommate, Josie, she would have turned him down flat. After a great deal of convincing, and despite her better judgment, she agrees to Jack’s scheme.

Jack enjoyed living alone, and having Kayla as a roommate takes some getting used to. He can’t believe how many products she uses, and how much space she needs. However, she always looks and smells amazing, even though she keeps him at arm’s length. Kayla constantly reminds him that she’s his pretend girlfriend, and when his parents leave, they’re still just friends.

Kayla can’t believe how quickly she acclimated to living with Jack. The hard part is keeping him at a distance emotionally. Soon, the line between friendship and romance is blurred, and she can’t imagine living without him.

Will Kayla and Jack’s pretend romance turn into true love? Or will they lose everything, including their friendship?
