He's on the run from a broken heart, still feeling the sting of the break-up with his California girlfriend, who he loved, even though she also loved other women, (which made him run all the way across the country). Now he's back in his old hometown palling around with good time friends, but longing for some truer romance. When he meets the perfect girl at work, she invites him into an exotic arrangement, but he's not sure can keep up.
He's cheered on by his drinking buddy Declan, a local bar manager, a source of endless trouble, and it's only his new best friend Helen who keeps his feet on the ground.
In this novel about love, sex and romance, the truth is revealed to look nothing like the storybook version, as Will is left to wonder: Is anybody really monogamous? And deep down, is he?
In this novel by "Official Stories" author Liam Scheff, you're invited into a world that you'll immediately recognize. In this fictionalized but semi-autobiographical account, we discover that true romance does not require exotic vacations, expensive hotel rooms, or movie-star looks or lines. It occurs without warning, at work, in cars and subways, in elevators and on bridges, at bars and parties, in apartments and on walks and talks with friends and lovers.
The book playfully takes on the controversial subjects of non-monogamy, threesomes, bisexuality and more, in a loose, convivial atmosphere, allowing the reader to experience the thoughts and feelings of the characters, their doubts and insecurities, and the love that keeps them going, and coming back for more.
