Samiah is heartbroken after she discovers that her current boyfriend is seeing two other women. After the breakup, Samiah stays in touch with the women and they form a strong friendship. Making a pack with these women, Samiah is determined to focus on work. In walks her new coworker Daniel. Daniel is new to the area and a bit mysterious, but as they work together Samiah finds that they have a lot in common. This was a fun read. I particularly liked the friendship that the three women foster throughout the novel. -- Anastasia
