With her biological clock ticking, thirty-nine-year-old New Yorker, Rachel Yardley is propelled into doing something that goes against everything she believes in—Online Dating. Challenged by her sister’s dare to meet fifty men in ninety days, Rachel rises to the occasion. While desperately speed dating at Starbucks, she questions her past choices in ex-boyfriends, abusive/abandonment issues with her father, and why the only unconditional love she has ever known…is with her dog.


Take the humorous and timely rollercoaster ride as Rachel Yardley races against her

biological clock to find Mr. Right (and possibly conceive a child). Can this woman who

feels “past her prime” find true love in a city where the odds are against her?

 Everyone thinks Todd Robinson is gay, including the girl he likes, Kate Conner.

Afraid he might jeopardize their friendship, Todd’s façade snowballs into an over-the-top mix-up 

of sexual preference and identities, when he gets his homophobic roommate and a Drag Queen involved. 

What happens when a straight guy pretends to be gay to get the girl?  


Sometimes we have to pretend to be something we’re find our true self!

"I didn't know he was married...I just thought he was busy!  I'm so naive. I guess it's time to toughen up. I need to learn how to be a New York bitch!" 

"We were outcasts... going against the system. 

Our love was different...special."  

"Men in Manhattan are measley, you know mousey, I would try looking in the nearby malls but right now my moped is being maintanced so I'm not mobile".
