Abbie de Vera, a writer and producer of fiction, plays, and the web series “The World of Holly Woodlands,” has completed her new book “Against Expectations”: a gripping and potent tale of love and marriage, trust and betrayal as playful exploration becomes a passionate affair.

When Nic meets 28-year-old Macari at a secondhand bookstore in Berkeley, their immediate connection and chemistry is both unexpected and undeniable. Cari, a joyful and adventurous aspiring fashion designer, is taken aback when Nic reveals that he has a wife and is in an open marriage, but finds herself drawn to the generous and charismatic man. Their romance, electricity and passion ignite up on a private yacht near Catalina Island and during trips to Napa Valley and Italy and they experience an ecstasy beyond either of their imaginations.

Accepting that Nic will never leave Suzanne, Cari surrenders her preconceived ideas of love and embraces her place in the open marriage. But when Suzanne realizes how much Nic and Cari truly adore each other, she demands that Nic end the affair immediately. Devastated but believing that his vows to Suzanne must come first, Nic feels he has no choice but to break Cari’s heart.

Soon after, Suzanne's dark secrets begin to surface. As their marriage disintegrates, Nic dedicates himself to creating a new future for his kids and wonders if Cari will ever be a part of his new life.
