Melany is the epitome of socially awkward. She wears baggy clothes, can barely hold a conversation with someone from the opposite sex and manages to put her foot in her mouth if she manages to open it at all. She's also been in love with a coworker for 5 years and hasn't even said hello to him.
Chance happens to see through all that to the swan beneath the ugly duckling. Initially, he agrees to help her gain some self-confidence so she can pursue her love interest. However, the more he gets to know her, the more he hopes to keep her for himself. Most of the book is about how their friendship develops while hiding all their true feelings for one another.

This was a cute story, predictable, but cute. At first, I was a little annoyed by Melany's character. The author went a little overboard in just how pathetic she made Melany out to be; however, once Melany starts to interact with Chance things got better. Speaking of Chance, he was the complete package - good looking, successful but not full of himself, incredibly sweet and intuitive to Melany's needs. I wanted him to get what he wanted because he is such a good guy. The ending was a little underwhelming, but eh, I still enjoyed reading it.
