Lauren broke off an engagement with her old boyfriend because she caught him cheating on her. She's ready to move on and have some fun, but she's been too busy to meet anyone new.
Marcus has always been a player, unable to settle down with one girl. No one seems to meet his long list of requirements in a woman.
Marcus and Lauren have known each other for a few years, working for the same company but at different locations. They've always flirted some back and forth, but Lauren had been with Kyle. Now that she's single and they are in the same city for meeting, they spend a few passionate days together, both assuming this is just a fling.
They both eventual realize they want more than a fling, but can they make a long distance relationship work? And when Lauren's old boyfriend comes back to win her affection, can Marcus compete with their history?
Lauren is the consummate Chicago businesswoman. She is smart, dedicated and successful. What she doesn’t have is love. Her fiancé was caught in a compromising position with his secretary (How original, right?) and the only other man she has ever been interested is in Colorado. She thinks that there is no way that Marcus felt the same electric shock of chemistry when they met in person but now that they are both unattached, will his trip to Chicago turn out to be more than just business?
“I didn’t want Marcus to think I was easy or I had one-night stands often, but I also made no apologies about my sexuality. I sighed and got out my phone back out to check some emails. I was just going to have to see where things went and try not to think too much about it. I needed to follow Amanda’s advice and ‘not think’ for once in my life.”
