Marisa and Jake are a perfect couple. And Kate, their new lodger, is the perfect roommate--and not just because her rent payments will give them the income they need to start trying for the baby of their dreams.

Except--no one is truly perfect. Sure, Kate doesn't seem to care much about personal boundaries and can occasionally seem overly-familiar with Jake. But Marisa doesn't let it concern her, knowing that soon Kate will be gone, and it will just be her, Jake, and their future baby.
