Abstinence is the heart of the story in this tale of two young adults who discover that true always comes to those who wait their turn. Years after breaking Eve Cassidy's heart in college, Thad MacArthur is stunned to see her stroll back into his life. These days Eve has a whole new approach to dating, but can they leave their turbulent past behind and forge a happy future together? As Eve and Thad struggle to make love work, the choices made by two other couples struggling through relationship issues help them to better understand the complex mechanics of their own romance: Matt and Liza are in the midst of reconciling a mistake from their past that will affect the rest of their lives, while Evan and Belinda attempt to determine whether they'll still be compatible years down the road. Perhaps with a little patience, everyone will realize that true love takes time and tenderness.
