Isla Rose Brady and her two best friends, India Summers and Bethany O’Grady, are very unlucky in love, but for one of them, that may be about to change. Isla is a 23-year-old self-published author with big dreams.​ When she meets 28-year-old Stuart Jones at her birthday party, the writer is convinced this is her happy ending. Though when an old flame, Jackson Harris, comes back into her life after three years, who will have her heart in the end? India Summers, more commonly known as ‘Indie’ by those close to her, is a twenty-two-year-old English teacher and single mother to her eight-month-old son, Ryan. Having been deserted by her ex-boyfriend when she announced she was pregnant, the single mom decides that love just isn’t for her, but sex is. As for Bethany O’Grady, the 23-year-old midwifery student knows she’s going places, but with a fear of blood, her midwifery career isn’t looking so good. Afraid of letting her dying grandmother down, she has decided to stick with the course…but this comes with consequences to her love life. The girls will meet much turbulence along the way to happiness, but at least they have each other...right?
