Alison Waverly can easily get any man she wants-- so it comes as a surprise to everyone when she begins to fall for her former professor Quinn Kaneko, an odd, anti-social genius shrouded in secrecy. A previously undiscovered world of passion is opened up to them both, but as the truth and consequences of Quinn's dark past gradually come to light, can their relationship survive the storm? More
Alison Waverly was born into a family of science geniuses, but the brainiac gene apparently skipped her. Still, her artistic and literary passions are supported by her parents, especially her doting father Charles, who also happens to be the Chairman of the Psychology Department at the prestigious Grayson University. When Alison spies her father sitting in his office looking distressed, she learns that an unknown 27-year-old "kid" has been invited into the Psychology department without her father's knowledge or approval. Quinn Kaneko, an eccentric, enigmatic figure who rarely wears shoes and looks as though he never sleeps, is surprisingly unobtrusive and quickly develops a lasting friendship with the formerly skeptical Charles and his fetching daughter.
Conventionally attractive, well-rounded and charming, Alison could date any man she wanted-- so it comes as a surprise to everyone, including herself, when she begins to fall for her friend and former professor, Quinn. He is nothing like anyone she's dated before, but as she matures, his unusual appearance, odd demeanor, and incomprehensible brilliance begin to intrigue her. Upon discovering her growing feelings for him, Quinn is equally surprised-- and stunned to realize he has begun to feel a connection with Alison as well. Together they unearth a previously undiscovered world of romantic possibilities, their days and nights suddenly consumed with intense passion.
Taking the road less traveled comes with its own set of challenges, however, and the lovers quickly find out that being together will not be a walk in the park.
Quinn, the man who knows everything, is disillusioned by the fact that relationships have stumped him, and when the underlying cause of his unorthodox behavior rears its ugly head, he is frustrated in trying not to entangle Alison. Meanwhile, Alison struggles to be supportive to a man who refuses to open up to her, concealing his darkest secrets, and constantly keeping her at arm’s length.
But when the truth and consequences of Quinn's dark past finally come to light, can their relationship survive the storm?
