Olivia Beechum has spent most of her life trying in vain to be important. From the ballet classes and beauty pageants of her youth to please her mother to the years of college where she learned graphic design to make her father proud, she has done everything she knows how to do to make herself mean something to someone … but it all goes down the drain when she loses her “acceptable” job and her “acceptable” apartment and is forced into menial labor as a bookstore clerk at Manning’s Manuscripts & More … a local book shop run by the most gorgeous man alive.
Introduced through their mutual friend, Emily, Olivia becomes the employee and flat-mate of Parker Manning … the most amazing guy ever, if Emily is to be believed. But the truth is, Parker has some issues of his own.
All his life, Parker has had difficulty coming to terms with people choosing to walk out on him. With the exception of his parents, whose deaths were no fault of their own, every single person he has ever cared about has left him. And now, here is Olivia … beautiful and witty and fun … living right under his roof, working her way into his heart. But Parker knows it’s only a matter of time until she, too, will leave him.
Despite knowing the good things he feels with Olivia can’t last, Parker selflessly opens both heart and home to her while hoping against hope he can find a way to convince her to stay. But when an unexpected phone call forces Olivia to make one of the biggest decisions of her life, will the little things be enough to prove that with Parker is where she truly belongs? Or will the lure of being accepted at last get in the way of true happiness for them both?
