Rose explores romance, sex, family, friendships, guilt and grief in an in-depth manner whilst succeeding in not languishing unnecessarily in emotions.”– S★★★★★“This book was light hearted and entertaining, easy to get into. The characters were very relatable no matter what your sexual orientation or stage in life is! Highly recommended!” –SMCOLA★★★★★“I needed to escape and have fun. Wanted to read about something familiar but unique. This book checked all the boxes. Kept turning the pages to find out how things were going to wind up for our cast. Interested to find out more about where the characters go next.” –Libraryjeans★★★★★“This book grabbed me from the first page with the smart characters, the witty dialogue and the warmth of the people within its pages. It's a colorful, vibrant world but more importantly, these are people I genuinely cared about as they fumbled their way to happily ever after.” –EllynMeet the cast:Kate Conrad is a short-term relationship specialist–but she doesn’t want to be.
