At the end of the day, Probation Officer Eve morphs into Mommy Eve, master of meals, homework, laundry, and bath time.

Did she let the one man who truly adores her get away? When her oldest son announces he's getting married, Eve's exes come hurtling back into her world, and she sees the men in her life with new eyes. After all, there's more to love than out-of-this-world sex. Though if you're lucky, you can have both....
