5’7”, long, brown hair, dark, brown eyes Brielle is a history and philosophy major who didn’t think much beyond graduating college. She’s content to work for her mother’s cleaning service, but her mom doesn’t think it’s enough. Ideally, she’d work at a museum. Brielle is a bit of a geek and loves superhero movies and popular TV shows like The Walking Dead, but she only sometimes reads comics.
6’0”, short, dark blond hair, light brown eyes Archer is a comic book artist who works from home. He self-published his first comic and eventually got a gig on a semi-popular superhero comic. He doesn’t get out much, but he does play basketball with his friends a few times a week. Because of his disability, his mother is overprotective, but he’s trying to spread his wings.
Four friends. Four college grads. Four people figuring out that life doesn't always turn out the way you expected.
Brielle Reyes may not have post-college life planned out like some of her friends do, but she figures she'll work for her mother's home cleaning service while job hunting for something that makes use of her history and philosophy degrees. It'll work out as long as she doesn't fall in love. Her last relationship was a disaster and she has no idea where she'll be in a few weeks, let alone the rest of her life. Since the only guy in her age range she sees now on a regular basis is cantankerous if handsome client Archer Ward, she probably won't have a hard time sticking to that vow. Probably.
Archer Ward likes very few things: illustrating as a somewhat-celebrated comic artist and his privacy. When his meddling mother hires him a cleaning service on an almost daily basis because she doesn't fully trust her son to live on his own with his disability, he's at first annoyed - even if his house cleaner is the most beautiful woman he's ever spent more than a few minutes with. When he realizes her dreams may take her far outside of his restricted orbit, he has to decide whether to stifle his interest in her or risk messing up her plans to explore if there's something more between them.
Neither can deny they're growing a little fond of each other, even if falling in love just now makes no sense whatsoever. But how often does love ever make perfect sense?
