IT guru Cassie Noble can depend on networks and servers. It's the people in her life that always let her down. With her fortieth birthday looming, she'd love to find a way to trust and commit to someone.
Eager to work out her problems methodically, Cassie reaches out to her support group. Electrician Keith manages to infiltrate their all-female ranks, infuriating her with his flippant jokes and his all-too laid back attitude. The other women all find him hilarious and she can’t see why. She takes this seriously and he’s doing anything but.
When Cassie needs Keith's help on a project at her day job, she's dreading having to work closely with him, however much his hazel eyes make her stop dead in her tracks. As days turn to weeks, he starts to break down her hard exterior. She’s seeing new possibilities. She’s seeing the future…a life that is joyful and bright. A life that includes Keith.
But when a letter from her mother drags her back to the world where Cassie has no control, she shuts down. Can her support group yank her back from that place where hope is lost? And can the man who once drove her crazy be the one who finally doesn’t let her down?

To summarize: this is a realistic story about a women who struggles with getting older and finding a long lasting relationship if her life. This book isn't as much a romance, but more Cassie her journey/ story. I liked seeing her develop throughout the course of the book, but on the other hand I also would've liked to see more of the side characters. There were some aspects were I could really relate to Cassie, but also things about her that I didn't like. And I never fully connected with her. There is also the whole plot surrounding Cassie her mother, which made me feel really conflicted and I knew that no matter how it ended I wouldn't be fully happy with it as it really is a difficult situation. This book did made me feel a lot, especially at the end. I really felt for Cassie and how she struggled and what she had to deal with. All in all I did enjoy reading this book, the writing style worked for me and it really made me think at feel at times. But I never fully enjoyed it and there were lots of small things and specific characters or scenes that bothered me or didn't quite work for me.
