Lexie Byrne is perfectly content approaching 40, as a singleton. After all, she can watch Dirty Dancing on repeat while eating cheese and onion crisp sandwiches in bed. Her ex-fiancé Dan, cheated yes, she was flattened yes, but she picked herself up and in hindsight, had a lucky escape. Lexie’s best friend is Annemarie, who, at 42, has settled for Tom, desperate for a baby. But when Lexie meets Adam and she feels a chemistry that almost makes her head explode, Annemarie strongly disapproves. Annemarie says everything is moving way too fast and insists on flying with Lexie when she goes to visit Adam, despite the fact that she thinks she might finally be pregnant. When they arrive at Adam’s, Lexie soon discovers that he has a very complicated past, and an even more complicated present.
