Things Penny doesn’t do: dishes and relationships.
It’s not that she hasn’t tried to date, but after getting her heart jerked around years ago, it became glaringly obvious that love just isn’t for her. Instead, she plays the field, easily avoiding letting any of the boys who chase her get past the doorway with one simple rule: Three dates, and that’s that. Because nothing good can come after three dates.
Things Penny does do: winged liner and smashing hearts.
Meeting Bodie is no different from any other man beyond the fact that she’s dreading saying goodbye from the second they get started. Doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on her. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and stacked and can play her body like a grand piano. Penny is built for love, but love has only ruined her, and the last thing she’s willing to do is put her heart down the garbage disposal again.
Things Penny doesn’t realize: her heart isn’t as safe as she thinks it is, and falling for Bodie is inevitable. Resistance is something she can only hang on to for so long. Persistence is exactly what he has, and he knows exactly what he wants: her.
