Emma Hayworth has loved Cameron Rushton ever since their freshman year of college. He’s always seen her as a friend, but she knows the last twelve years of devotion are going to pay off today, at his 30th birthday party on his parents’ yacht, because last night he kissed her for the very first time.
Instead, he announces to everyone assembled that he’s proposed to his on-again-off-again glamazon girlfriend, Honey Covington, and she’s accepted.
Emma is devastated, but as she looks across the crowded room, she sees handsome loner Derek Chase as upset by the news as she is, except he’s not looking at Cam—he’s looking at Honey.
Emma and Derek join forces to break up Cam and Honey and keep the pieces for themselves. As they scheme, they discover an unexpected attraction to each other. When Cam and Honey’s relationship gets rocky and they turn toward their long-suffering admirers, Emma and Derek must ask themselves if they really still want the pieces, or if—with each other—they’ve already found the person who makes them whole.
