Suddenly, Quinn begins to view Nick, her ex-brother-in-law, differently. Nick is no longer just a dependable friend, but a sexy, gorgeous, single man. When did that begin to change?

While Quinn pursues Nick, Darla Ziegler tries to renew her marriage. She purchases enticing lingerie and changes her hair, but her husband, Max, seems to be entirely oblivious. Will Darla give up?

Quinn McKenzie's "beige" life is beginning to gain vivid colors. She's coping with dog-napping, breaking and entering, seduction, sabotage, stalking, more secrets than she really wants to know, and two men who are suddenly crazy...for her!
The review of this Book prepared by Lauren

It takes a dog to make Quinn realize her relationship is totally one-sided--and the weight isn't on her side. So she moves out. She gets a little involved with her sister's ex-husband Nick, though they dance around it because it's weird. Then her ex-boyfriend starts stalking her, only he takes it to the level of sabotaging her home and almost kidnapping her. And, while Quinn is enjoying being somebody different, her life's being turned upside down by her newly-acquired stalker, her best friend's troubled marriage, her father moving in with her to get out of her parents house, and the town berating her for dumping their favorite coach.
