Happily Ever Single
A humorous look at one woman’s life who knows what she wants but now she just needs her family and friends to get on board with that. One date was all it was meant to be. Now Lucy and Ollie embark on a journey together while trying to find a compromise which suits both of their lives that perhaps can include love as well. More
Still in my twenties, I have it all. I am young, happy, and healthy, despite my wine and pizza addictions. I am a successful business owner who lives a life I love, free from any romantic commitments. To me, my life is perfect right now, except for just one small problem…
She will tell you I am missing something in my life, that I should be married with kids and have a house with a white picket fence, even though I cannot think of anything worse.
Ignoring my constant protests, she manages to set me up on a series of horrendous blind dates. To pacify my mother and avoid being set up with another friend’s son, I am driven to do something I never thought I would.
I begin arranging dates through an agency.
This idea seems to work well, until my arranged date falls sick right before a family event. With no other options, I am forced to attend with the agency owner’s brother-in-law as my stand-in date. At this point, my perfect life suddenly becomes … complicated.
Ollie is sexy, fun, and intense. There is an instant connection between us, but is it strong enough to risk my perfect life plan?
I am single, free, and content. I don’t need a man.
However, Ollie is persistent, despite my reluctance, and now I am left wondering if it is possible that he may be the perfect match for me.
Can Ollie be the one man to finally accept me for me, or does he think he can change who I am and my opinions?
Does my story end with me happily-ever-single or with a happily-ever-after?
Or can there be room for both?
