This is number 2 in the Labels series. These stories are not what they seem, based on the description. They are kind of seedy and dirty to start out because the hero or heroine is in a bad place, but there is lots of character development. Self-realization. There isn't a happily ever after, but there's a happily for now. Just like life.
I didn't enjoy the heroine's father hooking up with the heroine's friend, even if the heroine was okay with it. Seedy. Creepy. Yuck. But, par for the course with some of the other events, I guess.
