Liz has her own successful PR firm in Detroit where most of her clients are well known athletes. She had gained a lot of weight after school and worked hard to lose it in the last three years. One of the things she wanted to do now was to Find, F*^% and Forget Finn Robbins who she was in-love with when she was a teenager, but he broke up with her, leaving her heart broken. She goes back to that small town to stay with her parents for two months so she can carry out "The Plan" with Finn. Liz wants to complete "The Plan" for two reasons. To get Finn out of her system and to try out her new body before finding the real relationship. Finn's life has not been easy in the 15 years since he has seen Liz. His alcoholic wife left him and his two children and his 10 year old daughter is in a wheelchair with a spinal problem. Surgery may help her problem so Finn has constantly struggled to save money for the surgery. Also, he had to give up his career dreams for his family.

What Finn thought was an accidental meeting with Liz was actually set up as part of "The Plan" but when they get together things don't go the way Liz expected. She didn't expect to fall in love with Finn again.

I liked the character development and thought it was very well done. While I didn't like Liz's "Plan", I did like her and how she was so kind to everyone - except for what she planned on doing to Finn. Finn was a really nice guy and tried to provide for his family. He always felt like he came from the wrong side of town and was never good enough for Liz so getting rid of the chip on his shoulder was not easy. He had a lot of problems in his life but dealt with them. Finn's son, daughter and grandmother were great additions in this story. They helped show the strength of Finn's character.

I really liked this book and thought the ending was terrific. I highly recommend it.
