Blurb "What lies beneath my veiled perfection is the ugly truth—my truth, my reality, my destiny." Vivian Graham has an acceptance letter into Harvard, a badass tattoo, loyal friends, ties to marijuana, a penchant for Dunkin’ Donuts, and her pesky V-card. Everyday she takes the Red Line to her job at The Green Pot in Boston while her friends enter the coveted, black iron gates to higher learning. The ramifications from a tragic accident have put her life on hold while time marches on for everyone around her. After graduating from Harvard Law, Boston native, Oliver Konrad, moves to Portland to start his career and his life. Three years later, after a horrific discovery, he returns home to trade in his three-piece suit for leather work boots and his suburban home for a condo in Cambridge. All he brought back to the East Coast was an aversion to pillows and secrets he keeps hidden behind a mysterious locked door. Oliver’s days are predictable and his nights are lonely until he meets Vivian on the subway. Her long raven hair, green eyes, and mile-long legs are achingly sexy, but the way she "innocently" fingers and licks her Boston Kreme doughnut can only be described in two words—complete torture. When their paths cross at every turn, laughter is abundant, friendship is easy, and love is unintentional. However, their future seems improbable.

Life is all but hiding painful truths. We meet Vivian Graham who finds herself working at The Green Pot a nursery that also sell legalize marijuana in Boston. She has a bad ass tattoo on her back covering up scars from falling in a campfire and has issues about her attractiveness due to the scars and being a virgin still. Especially when her best male friend whom she has always idolize was the cause of her accident and his further rejection year later while she was offering him her virginity.

Vivian has loyal friends who try to keep her well rounded. Planning to enter Harvard after a two year break due to financial problems, she considers herself a nerdy geek planning to get her Business degree. She has a penchant for Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and Boston Kreme donuts.

Oliver Konrad a former Harvard graduate and lawyer has recently returned from living Portland. His three years was supposed to be the happiest time of his life. He moved to Portland and married the love of his life so she could be closer to her parents. Things were looking good as they ended up having a daughter and his law career was going well despite the long hours.

But one fateful evening things were going to change dramatically. Coming home early with flowers for his wife and excited to spend the evening with his two girls, he walks into a nightmare. Finding his daughter smothered by her own pillow and then finding his wife lying in a pool of blood with a knife still in her hand he manages to call for help and saves her life. But at that moment he falls out of love with her as he soon learns that she has always been suffering from depression.

Oliver returns to Boston trying to move on as he ends up working for his brother doing landscaping jobs. Trading his three piece suits for work boots he meets Vivian. Actually they been running into each other in the train while she drinks her coffee and seductively licks her donut drivIng him crazy.

They keep running into each other as he turns out to be her new next door neighbor. Slowly they become friends and find themselves in bed. Neither one plans to fall with each other as they let things happen. She knows he has secrets but figures he will tell her when she is ready but things don’t go perfect for them.

Can these two find happiness together and move on? Love is never perfect nor the situation ideal as we must make peace to move on.
