Publisher's Summary

Patty Murphy is facing that pivotal point in a woman's life when her biological clock ticks as insistently as a beating heart. Will she find Mr. Right and start a family? But Patty is in love - with a man who is not only attractive and financially sound, but sensitive and warmhearted. There's just one small problem: He is also gay.

Against her better judgment, and pleas from family and friends, Patty refuses to give up on Ethan. Every man she dates ultimately leaves her aching for the gentle comfort and intimacy she shares with him. But even as she throws eligible bachelors to the wayside to spend yet another platonic night with Ethan, Patty longs more and more for the consolation of loving and being loved. In the meantime she must content herself with waiting - until the real thing comes along...

    "give berg a chance"

    I'm writing this because of bad reviews this book had received. frankly i don't like it much either. .. but i love a lot of berg's other books. so don't give up on her on the basis of this one. furthermore the problem could mainly be with the narrator who does have an annoying whiney voice. my guess is if I'd read the book is have liked it a lot more

    "Don't waste your credit"

    I found the main character whiney and self absorbed, I just couldn't like her. I struggled through it as I had spent the money. I won't be buying another book by this author.
