Much as she loves her Key West birthplace, Everly Meyers dreams of living in New York City. Everything about the Big Apple appeals to her: the lights, the history, the glamour, and most recently, the presence of Drew Wallace.
Everly meets Drew when he comes to the Keys to celebrate his sister’s wedding. She gladly offers to play tour guide to the handsome New York journalist, and by the end of his short visit, she’s absolutely smitten. She’s also disappointed. Drew has a special someone waiting for him back home.
Romance isn’t an option, but Drew proves to be a loyal friend when Everly moves to the city—a little too loyal, in the opinion of his girlfriend, Peyton.
Much as Everly loves being in the city of her dreams, she quickly runs into difficulties. She struggles to find an apartment, develops a crush on Drew’s roommate, and quickly makes an enemy of a chauvinistic coworker.
Life in New York is more complicated than Everly would like, leaving her dazed, but she’s not ready to pack it in just yet. But she wonders if moving to her dream city might have been a mistake. As for Drew, well, he has his own ideas—ideas Everly might find surprising.
