Dear Agent for a Day,
For astrophysicist Allie, falling in love is as easy as identifying the planet Venus. However, keeping her boyfriends from fleeing as though she’s become a Martian is considerably more difficult. In an attempt to ‘act natural’ and protect future relationships from failure caused by her over-eagerness, Allie creates The 15 Date Rule: never sleep with a man until after the 15th date. Suddenly her dating life seems a lot easier, that is, until she meets Matt. THE 15 DATE RULE is a 102,000 word romantic comedy.
All 31-year-old Allie wants is someone to love her. She’s worked hard to have what she has: a nice house, a friendly dog, a good relationship with her long-time best friend and a career that boosts her confidence with awards and prestige. All that is missing from her life is a loving partner who enjoys star gazing.
During the break-up that leads to the creation of the 15 date rule, Allie meets Matt, the man hired by her boyfriend to break up with her. Afterwards Allie can’t stop thinking about Matt and how perfect the kind-hearted man seemed to be. Too bad he would never go for someone he was hired to break up with–like Allie.
When one of Allie’s work contracts sours unexpectedly and she faces losing everything she’s worked for, she decides it is time to take risks. Maybe pursuing a man like Matt is worth the chance of rejection.
