Pizza Hut Heartbreaker

For Dakota, Pizza Hut is the only place that feels like home. When the Hut hires Zoe, a straight-A Christian virgin with Ivy League dreams, Dakota doesn’t think she'll like the bougie newbie much. But after a few shifts, Zoe proves her worth and endears herself to Dakota--unfortunately, fellow cook Nick feels the same way.

Pizza Hut Heartbreaker is the story of co-workers, who become friends, who function a lot like family, exploring along the way how we end up in the lives we may or may not have chosen--and who gets to decide how much those lives mean.
