Allison is a young divorcee living in a squalid apartment in Seattle, working too many hours as an assistant manager of an ice cream parlour, coaxing a few more miles out of a dying Nova, and doing whatever it takes to get a better life for her 10 year-old son, Ethan.
Dexter is a prominent cancer researcher who divides his time between his enormous penthouse in the city and his familys hundred year-old orchard estate on the ritziest island in the Sound.
Theyve got nothing in common except Bunny Barnes Winchester, societys most hilarious grande dame and Alisons oldest best friend.
Well, there is one other thing they have in common: an anonymous tryst about 10 years ago. A tryst so wonderful, so mysterious, that neither has been able to forget it, even after the passing of over a decade. And when Allison gets one good look at a picture of Dexter Needham at age ten, and holds it up next to a school portrait of Ethan, suddenly Ethans special talents in science class dont seem so random after all and Allisons life and everything she has ever believed is about to get turned upside down in the most wonderful of ways
This is a very funny sexy book. I kind of a parody of what happens when we get that celebrity we dream about. You want them, but what do you do when you get them. Could you deal with the loss of privacy and what about your own life.
Its an intersting view into the what if. Once you pick it up you'll have a hard time putting it down.
