After a night-shift shooting of a drug dealer in The Coffee Cave, twelve strangers each walk out with more than $100,000 in dirty money, a pact never to meet again, and the chance to start over….
For Allison Daniels, starting over means keeping the promise she made to her best friend that she would join a therapy group and quit drinking, cold turkey. Allie signs up for the first group session she hears about - led by a gorgeous ex-marine named Noah - and decides he’d make the perfect AA sponsor-with-benefits, to help her give up her addiction in favor of a safer, more intimate pleasure.
The only problem? Noah isn’t running an AA group - he’s the president of a celibacy club. Two years ago, to secure visitation with a daughter conceived during a meaningless hookup, ex-marine Noah Porter joined Worth The Wait and took an oath of abstinence. Noah’s restraint is a thing of legend among college co-eds, many of whom have tried and failed to make him break his oath.
But when Allie accidentally joins his club, desperate to quit drinking and put her life back together, he quickly realizes she may be more than even he can resist. As Noah shows Allie which temptations to resist and which to indulge, they begin to fall for each other, but the more intimate their relationship grows, the more aware Noah becomes that soon he’ll be forced to choose between loving Allie and raising his daughter….
