Anita has had two failed marriages. Her first, to Ted, ended because they were too young. Her second, to Damon, ended because he left her…for a man named Paul.
After the pain of the divorces, she’s joined HookUsUp.com, hoping for one last chance at love through online dating. But so far, it’s been a fiasco. Then she meets Mitch on the site. He seems kind, handsome, decent – too good to be true? But as her hope surfaces with Mitch, both former husbands come back to turn her life upside down. Ted wants to re-connect but is easy to say “no” to. More dangerous is Damon, who wants another chance even though he’s still committed to Paul.
It’s a juggling act of men – good and bad – as Anita tries to sort out her life and what she really wants. How important is great sex, if no love is involved? Against the advice of mom Cassie and friend Mandy, Anita re-kindles her sex life with bi-sexual Damon and even tries a threesome with jealous Paul. She hates herself for it but is drawn to the steamy, wildly inappropriate encounters. Things soon spiral downhill, when a tantalizing abundance of sexy men turns to deceit, distrust and violence. Mitch, willing to give Anita all his love, finds out about the other sex partners she has and breaks off their relationship. Paul commits a violent act because Damon says he still loves Anita.
When Anita all but despairs of ever finding a forever soul mate, she and Mitch try one more time and she realizes that in spite of recent dark times, love – not just lust – is possible.
