Bobbi Richmond has always been in love with her best friend, Gabe Braddock, even if Gabe, who works for her media mogul father, has always treated Bobbi like a kid sister, calling her â€œRunt.â€�
After a tipsy Bobbi kisses Gabe at a party, Gabe is surprised to find â€œRuntâ€� becoming the object of his fantasies, and Bobbi is shocked to find her advances suddenly reciprocated. When Gabe suggests adding â€œbenefitsâ€� to their friendshipâ€”while keeping their new arrangement secret from their families, of courseâ€”should Bobbi feel flattered, or insulted by his insistence on casual sex? Are they even a match? Slick and conservative Gabe dates coiffed blondes, while the tomboyish Bobbi spends much more time fixing cars than her hair.
When Gabeâ€™s twin brother, Chase, senses somethingâ€™s up between the old friends, he forces Gabe to confront his real feelings for Bobbiâ€”and decide whether or not he could live without her.
