They knew from the beginning it was wrong.
Everything in her life pointed her away from him.
Everything beckoned him toward her.
When Rachel met Taylor, their connection was immediate and undeniable. With so many things in common, these friends found themselves falling inevitably and too fast to stop. There was but one thing that was between them:
Rachel had a boyfriend.
A year after parting ways, Taylor’s and Rachel’s individual lives have thrust them back toward one another, and the resulting fireworks will leave more than one person burned.
Rachel - just like some girls - the moment she met her boyfriend Josh - her world revolved around him alone. She was isolated from her friends, until she met Taylor.
Taylor - I like him in a way. Unlike the boyfriend who was too busy with work, and isolates Rachel from her friends, he was way different. He allowed Rachel to be herself and met his set of friends. He was sweet, thoughtful and an amazing friend. He makes her feel important - with this I couldn't really blame why she fell for this guy.
Mitchell - he was the best friend any guy or girl would ever ask for. He's always there when his help is needed and remains loyal to both. He's the bros-before-hoes type of friend and with that - Taylor has found someone he could trust not just with his friendship but with the girl who captured his heart.
I had a love-hate relationship with Rachel but I admired her in the end when she finally made her decision and stuck with it. It was hard, knowing that she has feelings for the person. But she knew she wasn't ready for a relationship, and it was most likely to be doomed if ever they act on it - the question remains, however, will he wait for her? Until when?
A year after they part ways, their paths have crossed and it was a total dejavu only this time the roles have been reversed, and there were more hearts involved. Will they finally get their HEA? Or would they give up their emotions and accept that theirs was never meant to be?
Cheating is cheating no matter what the reason behind is. I'm not a fan of girls entertaining suitors or admirers when they are still in a relationship. If you're not happy and the other person makes you miserable - leave. BUT NEVER CHEAT. Nobody can make you feel like crap not unless you allow them to. This is why I didn't like Rachel that much. Taylor already admitted his feelings for her before they met in person. Okay, it must have been a friendly act on her part - but remember that you have a boyfriend and a commitment and this other guy COULD misinterpret your interest in seeing him. Good thing that this guy is Taylor - and he's anything but assuming.
