Claire Malone didn't mean for this to happen when she moved to New York. She just wanted to live the city life and gain experience in television writing, her dream career. It's not like she meant to reciprocate when her married boss, Sean Vared, sent her flirty e-mails. And you can't blame her for coming into the office on the weekend when Sean told her he was going to be there . . . alone. She didn't mean to sleep with him but hey, she wanted to experience the city life, so no big deal, right?
Wrong. By the time Claire wakes up on her 25th birthday, she's very much in love with Sean. At work, she struggles to hold it together when he passes her desk--the very desk that they used to make love on. Soon Sean has turned his affection to the show's starring actress, and Claire is devastated. Can she break away from Sean without ruining her barely started career? Will someone find out what happened? Will she ever grow up and stop making stupid mistakes? 25 Sense is about the time in a young woman's life when the world starts to view her as a responsible adult but all she feels is lost.

“Henthorn's simple language takes us head first into an imaginary tale similar to the ones of Sophie Kinsella, Jennifer Weiner, Candace Bushnell, and Helen Fielding―which makes you wonder: how in the world that is so enamored of chick-lit, a fresh voice like Lisa Henthorn is not on top along with the other goddesses."―Jaylan Salah, writer and film critic, Authors, Large and Small
