The Sex Offender Next Door
Claire (early 30s, impetuous and blindly optimistic) has always believed in love, but love has never really believed in her. After a relationship with her married boss goes south, Claire's short-sighted attempt at revenge lands her on the national sex offender registry and she is sentenced to live in Hope Haven, a rehab community of low-level sex offenders. There, as the only woman among 150 men, Claire discovers being a sex offender might just be the best thing that's ever happened for her love life.
