Librarian Carrie West is scrolling through personal ads when she sees one placed by a user named Gear Tattoo who is looking for someone to meet him in the park on Wednesdays for kissing. Carrie loves her job as the "Liberrian" but longs for love in her life. Gear Tatttoo is Brian Newburgh who has promised kissing only on the Wednesday dates which will stop if either person stops coming to their dates.
Carrie and Brian are strongly attracted to each other but Brian has a secret. Carrie soon wants more from Brian than the kissing sessions he had promised but his secret is coming between them. Then one day Brian's secret is revealed in a way neither could have anticipated.
Mary Ann Rivers has written an very emotionally touching story about a couple who have to learn to love. I really felt the connection between Brian and Carrie.
