Kate Foster is a down-to-earth woman with good friends, a good job, and no time for a man whose idea of a long-term relationship is one that lasts longer than a week. So when Cole Russell, a successful and sexy, but short-term-only kind-of-guy, decides that he'd like to get to know her, she turns him down flat. Still, he somehow manages to convince her to join him for coffee, and a surprising friendship is born.
While everyone around them, including a matchmaking girlfriend and a grumpy but charming old man, grows exasperated with them, Kate and Cole insist that they are happily content being "just friends". Until Cole kisses Kate. Can Cole convince her that he's in this for the long haul, and that they are clearly meant to be more than friends?
