While exploring her weight loss options, Janey’s love life starts to heat up. Quite the added bonus for having to sweat and starve herself. First she meets Jacob, the hot juice bar guy, who takes her dumpster diving for food. Next she meets Hugh, a silver fox with class, money, and real world knowledge. Janey becomes smitten with the handsome gent who is looking for more than just a casual date.
