Jessica Stanley had listened to her friends prattle on and
on about love—where to find it and where not to—but she
knew the truth about “true love.” It was a myth, spread among generations
to encourage the single woman to continue her search for her dream man.
She’d called off the hopeless scavenger hunt a year after turning twentyfive.
Men weren’t what romance novels promised. Not by a longshot.
This wasn’t to say Jessica didn’t love men. She did. They brought many
physical attributes to a relationship, but those could easily be replaced by
quality batteries and well-crafted machinery.
She would stick to Friday nights out with good friends and weekends
buried in books.
Most of her group had beaten her to the restaurant. The hostess pointed
Jessica toward the rear corner of the bistro, a table almost hidden from
view. She wiggled between chairs and tripped over someone’s coat before
managing to get to them.

anyone in their group.
“You aren’t still thinking about staying celibate the rest of your life, are
you?” Jonathan asked as he tried waving down a waiter with his empty beer
“No. I’m just not wasting time searching for the catch of my life.”
Jessica smoothed down her windblown chestnut hair.
“Look at us.” Erin linked her arm through Jonathan’s and smiled.
“We’re happy. You know, it is possible to find a great guy who makes you
Jessica rolled her eyes at the sappy sentiment, ignoring the twinge of
envy pulling at her heart. Jonathan didn’t comment, continuing his pursuit
for an available waiter.
“Oooh, now that’s a good-looking man.” Kelly straightened her shirt
and finger-combed her thick, red curls while keeping her eyes fixed on her
Jessica followed Kelly’s stare. Alex pushed his way through the tables
toward them, a man following behind him. A tall man with undeniably
handsome features. A tall, hot man wearing a suit and mirroring a character
straight off the set of Mad Men. His hair was too dark to be brown and too
