He was only supposed to be a bit of fun...

‘This easy-to-read chick lit novel is dripping in wry wit.’ InStyle

When Abby enjoys a memorable night with a delicious 22-year-old, she easily waves him out of her life the next morning. She doesn’t have time for these sorts of distractions. And he’s only 22, after all! A child.

But the charming young Marcus isn’t going to let her get away that easily. He knows what he wants and takes it upon himself to prove that age is irrelevant where the heart is concerned. Abby, though, isn’t convinced. She feels certain she should be with someone her own age, someone more impressive, someone more . . . settled.

Surely nothing can ever come of this relationship?
