Even when they were in high school, Patty has always pined for Derek. But they moved in different social circles. He was a jock from a wealthy family. She was a quiet dreamer from a working class family on the wrong side of the tracks. He barely noticed her. Now, as the tall, dark object of her first serous crush waltzes into the store where Patty works, he doesn’t even recognize her. But that’s before Venus, Goddess of Love, and Mars, God of War, decide to lend a hand. Helping people unlucky in love and stuck in ruts is what they do. And Patty can sure use all the help they can give her!
