Some trauma never leaves you.
Fortunately, neither will the right person.
Alison Waverly was born into a family of science nerds, but the brainiac gene apparently skipped her. . .
When a 27-year-old “kid” is assigned to teach in her father’s Ivy League psychology department, Charles Waverly is anything but pleased. But Quinn Kaneko—an enigmatic figure who rarely wears shoes and prefers the floor over furniture—quickly proves himself adept, developing a unique bond with Charles and his charming daughter.
Eccentric and brilliant, Quinn becomes a mystery Alison can’t help but unravel, and together they embark on a sensual journey filled with intemperate passion and deep emotion.
But when the ever-enduring consequences of Quinn’s traumatic past inevitably come to light, the couple is faced with heartbreaking challenges that will test the strength of their new-found love.
