All of us have done something—something amazingly stupid that we think everyone is constantly judging us for because, wow, was that a mess up. The thing about human nature, at least in my experience, is that few have the time to focus on the things we tear ourselves down for. Instead, most folks are busy tearing themselves apart to take a moment and judge us.
However, sometimes our flail is in public, in a forum that can’t be easily forgotten. In the age of reality tv, vines, YouTube and social media taking over the world, it is really easy to become ‘internet famous’ for five minutes and for the rest of your life, you’re the skateboard up the nose guy.
How can you find love past that kind of infamy? Well, Mellie decides to hire a dating service…because she doesn’t want to always be the girl the guy on the reality tv show didn’t pick. Could you be brave enough to do something like that?
Looking for love...
After being voted off Find Your Hubby, a reality TV show, Mellie gave up on finding love. Instead, she spends her final check on a spur-of-the-moment fling, paying for a matchmaking service that offers the perfect person - for one night only.
Can you buy passion?
When the "perfect person" turns out to be a woman, Mellie first questions Madame Eve's choice...then her own desires.

Virginia Nelson believed them when they said, “Write what you know.” Small town girl writing small town romance, her characters are as full of flaws, misunderstandings, and flat out mistakes as Virginia herself. When she’s not writing or plotting to take over the world, she likes to hang out with the greatest kids in history, play in the mud, drive far too fast, and scream at inanimate objects. Virginia likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.
