When Joss is asked to write a story about how her life might have turned out if a pivotal moment in it never happened she thinks of the day she met both Braden and Ellie Carmichael. If she never met them, just where might she have ended up? Joss believes no matter where life might take her it would inevitably lead her to Braden. But what if she is thirty instead of twenty-two when they meet? How would she feel about risking her heart then? And even if she is older and wiser and ready to fall madly in love, what if too much has happened to Braden to make him the man that would risk his heart to save hers?
