A romantic comedy about love in the age of hand sanitizer, double masks, and quarantinis…
As soon as the pandemic hit, art conservator and germaphobe Sophie Longeway locked herself in her New York City apartment. Seven months later, she’s unemployed, staring at a mountain of bills, and has a grumpy landlord breathing down her neck.
Agent to the stars Jacob Rossi and his fiancée, A-list actress Savannah Reed, lasted exactly thirty days in lockdown before they realized they couldn’t stand each other. Now he’s alone with little to do other than pacify his out-of-work clients and worry over his sick grandmother.
When a flaky antique shopkeeper refers Jacob to Sophie, there’s an instant connection. But how can they ever have a real relationship if she refuses to take off her mask?

A pee-in-your-pants comedy, rife with nutty roommates, questionable fashion choices, and an epic search for the perfect cup of coffee...Twenty-two-year-old Susan Wade's dream of a glamorous, high-powered career is the only thing that's gotten her through the past four years of college. But now that she's graduating, her future isn't looking quite as bright as she'd hoped. She's discovering the hard way that Corporate America values something she doesn't have: experience.

She's got to convince someone to take a chance on her. But how?
Let's face it. Ben's not exactly relationship material. Awkward and geeky, his ideal job is designing computer software while hyped up on energy drinks.

Will Susan get the break of a lifetime before she makes a huge mistake? Will Ben finally get his fantasy girl? Or will they both end up in caffeine rehab? Find out in what readers are calling a surprisingly quirky, completely wonderful story!

Twenty-nine-year-old Susan Wade didn't realize what she was getting into when she and her best friend cooked up a scheme to help her get promoted. Once settled in the claustrophobic coastal town of Havelock, North Carolina, she can't wait to leave. But before long she discovers her new arch-nemesis wants more from her than a good fight.
When Susan's world blows up, Pete Walsh, Havelock's version of the bachelor, is the Southern gentleman who helps her pick up the pieces. But are his motives as gentlemanly as he pretends or is lust taking the wheel?
As sparks fly, Susan is soon faced with a problem she may not be able to solve. Could Pete Walsh be the man of her dreams, or is that dream promotion what she really wants? Will these two confused souls figure out what they need before Susan is called back to the big city? Can Pete let Susan leave this small town without a fight? And when did this casual summer fling turn into the “L” word?
