Sean Reilly seems to have his life sorted: lovely family, beautiful house and lucrative career as a voice-over artist. But he craves the sort of romance and affection that he no longer receives from his wife. When she sets up home in Kent without him he wonders why, once married, women want men to change and hate it when they don’t? Whereas men never want women to change and hate it when they do.

Lucy Ross, ‘caught single’ after a career development sends her long-term boyfriend into paroxysms of jealousy, is also looking for romance. She doesn’t want Sean to change – she just wants him. Full stop. So could the life of Reilly be sorted after all?
