Kamryn Hillcroft is bubbling over with excitement. The Dallas Mavericks just made it to the semi-finals and have a good chance to take it all for the first time in franchise history. For a sports journalist, she couldn't be happier...and, even better, her best friend, Brayden Allen, is on the team. For five years she's enjoyed a comfortable friendship with Brayden. He's a great listener, was a shoulder to lean on when her husband died unexpectedly, and always gave her a nudge when she was down. Now Brayden wants to date her!
She is doubtful that a relationship can work without endangering their friendship. He is confident they can have the best of both worlds. As Kamryn investigates a teammate's suicide and uncovers a gambling ring someone targets Brayden for violent attacks. It's up to her to sort out the details and find out who's responsible.
