Dom Baylor just finished her freshman year in college and is back in Florida for the summer. A lot has happened since she's been away. Dom has survived her first love, her first time, her first breakup. But will she ever love anyone as much as her ex? Enter Guy. Guy is . . . hot. And he's smart, nice, and as crazy about science as Dom! Everything is perfect. Until Guy reveals that he doesn't want to get married-ever. Dom doesn't want to get married now, but isn't dating foreplay to engagement, just as engagement is foreplay to marriage? What's the point of dating if marriage isn't the end goal? But Guy is . . . hot. And you only live once, right? So, for the first time, Dom lets loose. And it's fantastic. Unlike with her ex, the sex is actually fun and so good! But soon, Dom begins to realize that feeling something-even heartbreak-might be better than feeling nothing.
