There was a fieriness in his eyes that made me want to back down. But so far, this had been a night of t being afraid. Of taking chances. So I was just going to come out and say it.

When Jess met Ollie, her parents had just split and her only real purpose in life seemed to be being the wing-girl for her best friend, Tina. She wasn't looking for a boyfriend, or even a boy-friend, or even someone to talk to. She definitely wasn't looking for a boy with personal issues that could get them killed.
