Summary, etc.:
"Annika (rhymes with Monica) Rose is an English major at the University of Illinois. Anxious in social situations where she finds most people's behavior confusing, she'd rather be surrounded by the order and discipline of books or the quiet solitude of playing chess. Jonathan Hoffman joined the chess club and lost his first game--and his heart--to the shy and awkward, yet brilliant and beautiful Annika. He admires her ability to be true to herself, quirks and all, and accepts the challenges involved in pursuing a relationship with her. Jonathan and Annika bring out the best in each other, finding the confidence and courage within themselves to plan a future together. What follows is a tumultuous yet tender love affair that withstands everything except the unforeseen tragedy that forces them apart, shattering their connection and leaving them to navigate their lives alone. Now, a decade later, fate reunites Annika and Jonathan in Chicago. She's living the life she wanted as a librarian. He's a Wall Street whiz, recovering from a divorce and seeking a fresh start. The attraction and strong feelings they once shared are instantly rekindled, but until they confront the fears and anxieties that drove them apart, their second chance will end before it truly begins." -- Publisher's description
Annika Rose feels lost in social situations, saying the wrong thing or acting the wrong way; she just can't read people. Working at the Harold Washington Library, she prefers the quiet solitude of books or playing chess to being around others... apart from Jonathan. She liked being around him, but she hasn't seen him for ten years. Jonathan Hoffman is now a Wall Street whiz, recovering from a divorce and seeking a fresh start. When fate reunites them in Chicago, will their second chance end before it truly begins? -- adapted from jacket
