One Less Problem Without You by Beth Harbison
To Lissa Thomas, majoring in business administration seemed like a practical and stable life path…until she tried to find a job after graduation. Desperate, Lissa finds herself working as the office/business manager for M Street Apothecary, a metaphysical store selling cards, crystals, potions, candles, and hope. When Lissa falls head over heels in love with the owner’s very married trust fund manager who she works closely with, she’ll need nothing short of magic to help her fall out of love.
An aspiring jewelry designer, Diana Tiesman has been suffering through a difficult relationship with a charismatic man who just can’t be faithful. But no matter how many times he lets her down, Diana can’t get over him. So when an old friend calls her with the offer of under-the-table pay in exchange for making jewelry to sell at M Street Apothecary, it’s the perfect opportunity to get away and get over him. Suddenly, Diana finds herself living in a group house and living on the cheap in one of the most expensive cities in the world, as she must decide whether she’d rather be lonely alone than lonely in love.
