the bikini syndrome
❝the story of an annoying(ly cute) boss, a bikini, and a fake illness❞
Holly needs a job. And some cash.
That's how she ends up at Cafe by the Sea, hired by the assistant manager, Oliver, who's cute, annoying, and totally unattainable. She's not really looking to fall in love though - it's just that Oliver is a really nice distraction. And she also kind of can't - overprotective parents. She's technically not allowed to date until she's in college. And she's okay with that - Holly has friends, a good family, decent grades, an okay body (it could always be better though), and life is pretty smooth for her.
But smooth isn't always best, as she discovers. Over the course of summer, Holly learns that there's a lot more to love than passionate kisses, you don't need a bikini to look good and feel good in the summer, and that the truth really does set you free. You just have to discover it.
