Twenty-six-year-old Rose Devlin may shop in the plus-size department, but she's never had a problem attracting men--with disastrous consequences. Recovering from her latest mistake, Rose has sworn off casual sex and moved to California to grow up, help her best friend, and make something of herself.
When Rose asks the cute-but-geeky guy next door to help her land a job in high tech, she never expects to unearth his quiet strength, stunning accomplishments--and hidden talents.
With a secret in her own past, Rose tries to keep her distance, but she finds that nerdy Mark isn't so nerdy when the lights go out. And that maybe, just maybe, she's not too grown up to risk one more disaster...

A well-written rom-com
A few typos do not detract from the enjoyment of reading this story. The story flows smoothly with believable characters and situations, and witty dialogue.
What a rare find in the world of romance novels. It has the right touch of humour, seriousness and dollops of love and the hope of a happily ever after. Absolutely believable characters with real life issues. Thank you Miss Gretchen, Im your new fan.
