One of a Kind

Paula Copeland is a high-maintenance, women's boutique owners, and part-time real estate who is tired of always being the bridesmaid but never the bride. As she and three of her friends come together for the wedding that will leave her as the only single one among them, she really starts to put the pressure on her lawyer boyfriend Jaleel for them to tie the knot. Having all that money can buy, the man she marries must have no less. Jaleel fills the bill better than any man she's ever dated, and she's not about to give him up--not even if it means going against her gut instinct. When she meets Bradford Livingston, she instantly forms a negative opinion of him. Viewing him as a handyman with a menial business, he doesn't hold a candle next to Jaleel. His good looks, kind personality, and well-meaning intentions don't impress her one bit. And even though he says he's just trying to be a friend, she knows better. Besides, why does she need another friend when she has everything she needs to keep her happy? As the days, weeks, and months go by, life goes on as Paula and Jaleel plan their future together. But when her seemingly perfect world is suddenly turned upside down, Bradford will teach her a lesson in friendship and humility that she will never forget.
