But all of that changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when, after a few too many drinks, she ends up in bed with Darcy's fiance. Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to realize that she has genuine feelings for the only guy she shouldn't.
