The two main characters, Ethan and Macy, meet through a casual dinner with mutual friends when both become intrigued with the other. Their paths cross a couple more times through their mutual friendships, leading to the two of them spending time together alone- sometimes on a date, sometimes just casually hanging out. At the beginning, Ethan is non-committal to the point of not even calling Macy after they've spent time together leaving Macy confused about the status of their "relationship". Eventually, Ethan decides he wants to date Macy, and even casually suggests they get married before the end of the book.
This was not one of my favorites from this series. I had great difficulty believing that Macy and Ethan would be together as a couple in the romantic sense. Not only did I feel that there wasn't enough development in their story, but their interactions were more on the "friends that flirt" plane than the "you're my soul mate and I want to marry you" plane. Ethan's casualness about their relationship- especially his nonchalance about getting married- was actually a turn-off for me. And at times, their interactions seemed just a bit silly and immature. Wish I could give a better review.
