When the chance arrives for her to housesit, she takes opportunity by the horns for a little playtime. She would experience life and find something that would make her happy.
Drew knows exactly what he wants. To run the family construction business. Too bad his dad doesn’t think he’s ready. They make a deal. Drew will help his cousin put up a new fence and after he’s learned hard work, the construction business is his.

Then that little thing called Fate happens. Watching her dance in the bar, Drew is held captive and can’t look away. What starts out as a simple, “Yeah, I’ll keep my eye on her.” Turns out to be the very thing that is his undoing.
