What's the value of love? Shy data scientist Owen Quinn is brilliant at predictive models but clueless at romance. Fortunately, a new career allows him to start over hundreds of miles from the ex he would rather forget. But the opportunity might go to waste since this isn't the kind of problem he knows how to solve. The truth is, he's terrible at making the first move and wishes a connection didn't have to revolve around sex. Cal Mercer works for the Nick of Time Escort Service. He's picky about his clients and has never accepted a regular who is looking for companionship over sex--but can the right client change his mind? And can real feelings develop while money is changing hands? Owen and Cal might get to the root of their true feelings... if their pasts don't interfere.
