Jennifer Nolan has been unlucky when it comes to love; even more unfortunate when it comes to sex. In fact, the twenty year-old college junior is about to enter her senior year still carrying her v-card. All she wants is to be with that special someone without it resulting in a trip to the emergency room, runaway office supplies, or being scarred for life by someone’s weird fetishes. With several botched attempts under her belt, she begins to fear she’ll end up a lonely spinster or a crazy cat lady.
With only 60 days until her 21st birthday, Jennifer is determined to lose her virginity once and for all. Little does she know that her mission will lead her down a path toward love. She never expects that her mission will lead her to a discovery of what true womanhood is, and where true and lasting love begins.
She’s a spoiled shopaholic with daddy issues. He’s a socially conscious vegetarian who doesn’t hide his disdain for people who come from the trappings of wealth. Of course, none of that would have mattered if Chloe could have just left her summer fling with Chase behind her without a glance back—something that will prove impossible when the consequences of that fling rear their head. Particularly one consequence; one with ten fingers, ten toes, and the potential to turn Chloe’s privileged life upside down.
But deciding what to do about her unexpected pregnancy is only one of Chloe’s problems. When Chase moves in across the hall, pretending that their one night together didn’t mean anything will be the hardest thing she’s ever had to do. Especially when that night meant more to her than she’d ever want to admit out loud. Chase is determined to make her see that they could be so much more than a mindless fling; and a girl who’s used to getting her way will find Chase’s determination hard to resist when love is at stake.
Kinsley Simmons does not belong in an inpatient facility for people struggling with eating disorders. However, her doctor and therapist are of the opinion that she does; which is why she’s missing out on her college graduation to participate in a recovery program for Bulimia Nervosa. A girl with a Type A personality, Kinsley never thought her life would come to this—dumped by her college sweetheart, flunking most of her classes, caught between bickering parents on the brink of divorce, and spiraling out of control as the dangerous habits of her disorder destroy her health and friendships.
When Royce Adams is invited to speak to her therapy group, Kinsley isn’t at all interested in anything he has to say. He can never understand what she is going through, or have the first idea of how to help her get better. Yet, as he takes a personal interest her recovery, she comes to realize there is more to Royce than meets the eye. While seeming perfect on the surface, he wrestles with demons of his own, including a past riddled with addiction and self-destructive behavior.
As their friendship blossoms into something more Kinsley will find in Royce the strength to face the reasons behind her disorder. With his help, she may also find what she needs to live a full, healthy life … one filled with happiness and love.
