Max and Ruby have fallen hard for each other after a bitter grad school rivalry turned first into lust, and then into love.
When the school year comes to an end, they’re faced with a new challenge: a summer apart.
They make plans to visit each other, but when Max comes to Chicago to meet Ruby’s family, she brings with her a secret in a small package – an engagement ring that she hopes will prove her devotion. There’s only one problem…. Max has never been good at first impressions, and she fits into Ruby’s family like a square peg in a round hole.
Everything she says is wrong, Ruby’s perfect ex-girlfriend keeps coming around, and the city is exhausting. It even seems like Ruby is beginning to question whether she has what it takes to navigate life with a partner on the autism spectrum.
Is love enough to get them through the summer?
The Rules of Engagement is book two in the Rulebook series. It’s recommended to listen to these in order.
