Life is sweet for New Yorkers Molly and Gabe: They're young, successful, and newly engaged.
But when Gabe sells his first novel—a thinly veiled retelling of his wild love affair with ex-girlfriend, Talia—and it becomes a national sensation, Molly can't help but feel like the third wheel. To make matters worse, Talia reappears in Gabe's life, eager to capitalize on the book's success and—it seems to Molly—rekindle what she had with Gabe. But even more concerning? Gabe doesn't seem concerned at all. Instead, he's delighting in his newfound fame and success.
Jealous, paranoid, and increasingly desperate, Molly starts to spin out of control: A dramatic office display gets her fired, a drunken shopping spree maxes out her credit cards, and a trip with her girlfriends leads her into the arms of her first love, who's everything Gabe is not. As fact and fiction—and past and present—begin to blur together, Molly realizes the only way out of this downward spiral is to claw her way back up. But what—if anything—will be left of her life and relationship when the dust settles?
