When Staff Sergeant Lexa Woods comes back from an oversea deployment that ended in physical and emotional trauma, she sets out on a journey to find her so-called fate with her buddy Hades, a German Shepherd.
She winds up on a dog boarding farm, owned by Clarke Griffin, a divorcee and young mother, who is mourning the death of her brother.
They find solace and comfort in each other, while their complicated backstories test their faith in destiny.
(If you haven't guessed already, it's 'The Lucky One' movie adaptation that nobody asked for)
There's no one Clarke Griffin loves going up against in court more than Lexa Woods. And there's no one Clarke Griffin hates going up against in court more than Lexa Woods. Lexa always knows just how to get a rise out of Clarke, how to ruffle her feathers and make her work for it. Winning against her is a unique challenge that Clarke thrives on. Little does she know that Lexa's particular talents transfer out of court and into the sheets as well. But, she's about to find out.

As Lexa walks past, giving the dog a wide berth, she spots a figure beside it. A girl with braided blonde hair stretches out on the park bench, fingers tangled in the dog’s thick fur. She frowns softly. Usually the homeless people Lexa sees are older males with scruffy beards, tugging shopping carts filled with cans. But this girl on the bench, her golden hair streaming over her back, looks so out of place that Lexa almost stops. Most homeless tend to stay near the city, yet here she is, in the middle of the forest.
Or: In which Lexa takes in two strays, but it's really herself that's saved in the process.
Lexa transfers to Polis University in the middle of the term to be closer to her sister Anya when she's not in the best mental state. There she discovers Anya and her friends (also Lexa's friends by association) have kind of a feud going on with an opposing group known around campus as The Delinquents (which Lexa thinks is just a stupid name if she's honest). In all actuality Lexa really doesn't care about the social situation, preferring to ignore it. But Clarke Griffin, the leader of The Delinquents seems to have taken an interest in her and well... Lexa for some reason can't help but be intrigued by her. They strike up a deal because Lexa has a 102% in class and Clarke wants to do better than a C (or so she says). In return for tutoring Clarke is to help Lexa acquire the proper social skills to obtain a girl she has her eye on (without actually having to reveal who the girl is to Clarke anyway). This deal is meant to be kept secret as is their slow bonding friendship that forms over the course of the term would not go over well with their rivaling friend groups.
Nor would the fact that the girl Lexa's trying to woo is the one teaching her how.
Clarke is married to Finn, they have a son named Jacob. Finn is emotionally, verbally, and sometimes physically abusive (toward Clarke). One day, Clarke’s new assistant, Aden Woods, happens to drop by her house under the guise of needing to remind her about a meeting and overhears one of Finn’s explosions. Aden manages to get Clarke and Jacob out of the house without upsetting Finn and takes them straight to his family’s law office. And at their moment of greatest need, Lexa Woods suddenly appears and starts the process of saving Clarke and Jacob from Finn.
