They do say that opposites attract, and that certainly applies to Ally and Ross. They couldn’t be more different.
Ally is strung tighter than a violin string. Her motto is work, work and then more work. Life has taught her a series of lessons, hardcore lessons in life, one of which is not to leave yourself open to pain and hurt. Just easy episodes without the complication of emotions.
Ross certainly isn’t prepared for the stubborn ice queen and her odd boundaries for relationships and hook-ups.
This story is about breaking down the walls of the past and ridding yourself of the invisible chains binding you to those years and events best forgotten. The way abandonment issues flow quietly into the future and straight into any relationships you try to maintain.
Ally fights every single person that tries to get close to her, the family who took her in, the woman who raised her and each potential boyfriend.
Sounds a wee bit like a wet Sunday, right? Not at all. The banter between the two main characters is witty, fun and filled with taut sexual tension. The type of tension that ends up playing havoc with their emotions and control.
