The Anatomy of the Human Heart
College sophomore Ava Fischer is an aspiring biomedical scientist who lives and breathes anything mildly related to the sciences. Headstrong, responsible, and incredibly bright, she can easily catalog the hierarchy of biological classification's eight major taxonomic ranks off the top of her head along with its intermediate minor rankings, or dish out the tedious process of cellular respiration in its totality, right down to its diminutive molecular details.
Yet the only thing she truly knows about the human heart is its anatomy. And the only thing she really knows about love is that it exists.
So when affable, free-spirited Ethan Perry literally crashes into Ava’s life with a biology textbook in one hand and an enticing wad of cash in the other, she sees no harm in sharing her knowledge of the biological universe with him, provided she receives a proper sum of money in exchange for her services.
However, things get complicated when feelings begin to blossom. It isn’t long before Ava's heart becomes more than a thumping organ in her chest—it becomes a metaphor for the one emotion she thought she’d never possess: love.
When locked in a battle between undisputable science and the uncertainties brought upon by emotional investment, will Ava choose to follow her heart or her mind?
