Sometimes you don’t know what you want until someone else has it.
Lily needs a break. A man break. She hadn’t exactly meant to sleep with her friend, Pete, and she certainly hadn’t expected him to confess his love for another girl the next morning. If men were going to behave like such pigs, well, she’d happily take some time out.Besides, her TV career requires all her attention right now. Jack Winters, the gorgeous new talent, is definitely proving a distraction, but Lily is determined to maintain her professional distance, even when Jack starts seeing someone completely inappropriate. It’s only when Lily accepts that good things don’t always come to those who wait and takes a leap into the great unknown that life starts making sense.
