Ella Jones decided she wanted her 21st birthday to go out with a big bang. Boy, did that happen! She had a one night stand with her best friend, Ryan Owen. Somehow, they were able to return to their easy going relationship–until Ryan spends the summer in Australia and returns with a new buddy, Liam George. For some reason, Ryan does everything possible to prevent Ella from having a relationship with Liam even though Ryan has a girlfriend.
But what happens when Ryan breaks up with his girlfriend and tries to keep Liam away from Ella? The girl he has been in love with since Freshmen year but was too chicken to say anything. Why does he have this gut wrenching feeling every time Liam is near Ella? How can he make it stop?
