Lisa Williams had it all—exquisite beauty, a lucrative career, and a fabulous home. As a high-powered marketing executive for a Fortune 500 firm, she called the shots and meticulously planned every aspect of her privileged life. Every aspect, that is, except …
When her father died unexpectedly in her junior year of college, gone, too, was that moral compass that was to guide Lisa safely toward true love. Naive and uncertain when it came to matters of the heart, she gave herself completely over to a series of failed relationships. In the end, Daniel’s well-hidden secret nearly caused Lisa to throw in the towel on life when his dirty laundry came to light. But, somehow, she found the strength to press forward. Although barely.
Behind the torturous suffering of unrequited love, she buried her passions deep within and vowed never again to allow her heart to lead her astray. To avoid the pain that nearly drove her to suicide, Lisa developed a failsafe, ten-rule checklist to screen for the next Mr. Right.
Everything worked perfectly until Jacob entered the picture. While definitely not a man Lisa’s overbearing, status-driven mother would approve of, he was every bit the knight in shining armor she had been praying for. Only one problem: how would she get past the fact that Jacob did not even meet the top two rules on her checklist?
Take this journey with Lisa as she tries desperately to reclaim the bright optimism and certainty of her youth while leaving behind the pain and disillusionment of her present. And discover whether she truly can reconcile Jacob’s shortcomings with her trusted checklist.
