As a rule of the best friends’ code, falling for your best friend’s woman is strictly forbidden. But sometimes, the heart wants what it wants.
And for me, that’s Lulu. Even though I knew I shouldn’t, I couldn’t help but fall for her.
And when she walks back into my life, I’m faced with the temptation I thought I had buried deep within. But this time, she’s not just my best friend’s girl.
She’s also part of a scavenger hunt that takes us all over New York City. As we race against the clock, I find myself seeing her in a new light.
But I’ve been burned before and I can’t risk it all for love. Even if it’s more tempting than the sweetest chocolate.
