Wendy’s best friend Jane (from One and Only) is getting married, and she’s delighted to be asked to be the maid of honour. Unfortunately, the best man is the bride’s older brother, Noah, who Wendy nursed a crush on for pretty much her entire adolescence until he broke her heart by standing her up at the prom. She has spent most of her adult life going on strategic trips to avoid spending time with Jane when she knew Noah was around, but now she’s going to have to spend quite a lot of time in his company and it has her on edge. Determined to not show him how much he still affects her, Wendy challenges him to a “friendly” competition, about making the most memorable bachelor or bachelorette party.
Since Wendy spent almost all of her time at their house growing up, Noah is very comfortable in her presence. His sister’s friend is all grown up now, however, and initially, he feels almost guilty at how much she’s now affecting him. She also seems to go out of her way to either avoid him entirely or snarkily disagree with him. As they are both trained lawyers, they can certainly both dish it out verbally, but the closer to his sister’s wedding they get, the more he seems to forget that Wendy was his sister’s childhood companion because he can’t stop thinking about how much he wants to kiss her.
