"What lies beneath my veiled perfection is the ugly truth—my truth, my reality, my destiny."

Vivian Graham has an acceptance letter into Harvard, a badass tattoo, loyal friends, ties to marijuana, a penchant for Dunkin’ Donuts, and her pesky V-card. 

Everyday she takes the Red Line to her job at The Green Pot in Boston while her friends enter the coveted, black iron gates to higher learning. The ramifications from a tragic accident have put her life on hold while time marches on for everyone around her. 

After graduating from Harvard Law, Boston native, Oliver Konrad, moves to Portland to start his career and his life. Three years later, after a horrific discovery, he returns home to trade in his three-piece suit for leather work boots and his suburban home for a condo in Cambridge. 

All he brought back to the East Coast was an aversion to pillows and secrets he keeps hidden behind a mysterious locked door. Oliver’s days are predictable and his nights are lonely until he meets Vivian on the subway. Her long raven hair, green eyes, and mile-long legs are achingly sexy, but the way she "innocently" fingers and licks her Boston Kreme doughnut can only be described in two words—complete torture.

When their paths cross at every turn, laughter is abundant, friendship is easy, and love is unintentional. However, their future seems improbable.

Customer Reviews

Sex, Secrets and Doughnuts

A beautiful woman with a doughnut obsession and a desire to create 'the next big thing' who just happens to still have her V card ... Vivian is far from 'normal' and completely fabulous! She is so quirky, funny (without trying), a bit awkward, kinda dorky, and nerd sexy! Oliver is a sexy, smart, rise with the sun kind of guy with secrets and a tragic past that could keep him from his future. Oliver and Vivian's first meeting is funny and truly the perfect start to their relationship, a relationship that goes through a lot throughout the story. I think Jewel has done it again, fabulous book, steamy sex, humor, and the story of forgiveness make this another one of my favorite books. Can't wait to see this and all of Jewel's other books turned into movies … here is to seeing Oliver Konrad on the big screen!

So good!

Wow. Funny, heart warming, panty wetting, earth shattering, painful, tear producing, heart breaking.
This story was so deep but at the same time had so many funny moments.
I LOVED all the characters, literally
If I wasn't crying or on the verge of, I was laughing out loud. But it's also sexy, very sexy. One of the best stories I have read all year. It kept me captivated the whole time, I never knew for sure what what was coming and was never disappointed. I will also say this is the first story I have ever read that not only gives me closure on a couple but also makes me want more of the other characters in the book. Bravo women seriously!
