Executive assistant Lexa Prescott is trying to find her way after a devastating divorce. She’s not prepared to come face-to-face with her ex as he assumes leadership of the place she feels safest--the Fifth Avenue Story Society. Professor Jett Wilder has plans for his life. They don’t include a Monday night story society at an old library, but his university department chair has other ideas. Circumstances continue to throw Jett and Lexa together, and both are forced to reexamine the disintegration of the love they once shared. For it to have another chance, they’ll have to find the courage to tell their stories honestly, no matter what else it costs them . . . and that’s almost always easier said than done.
