Ness's parents are shocked when she turns down her place at Leeds University and takes on a full-time job in a call center. Determined to begin her adult life the way she wants, Ness moves to Leeds to live with her best friend Abby.
One night she meets Evan, who is everything she hates about guys. He may be hot but he's also drunken, arrogant, and on top of that, he apparently has sex with girls and forgets about it. But Evan isn't what he seems and Ness soon discovers they have more in common than she thought.
When their new lives don't go as planned, Ness and Evan are both faced with difficult choices.

Our position on the sofa allows me to lean against Evan, half on top of him and I push myself into him, not taking my mouth from his. Evan's arms wind around my waist and pull me closer. Where I'm lying on him, I can feel his erection against my thigh. Wow. I've hardly touched him - maybe I do the same to him. I pull my head back and meet his eyes, the hungry look I expected is held in them.
"Are you pinning me down so I can't leave this time?" he asks.
I smile. "No. You can go now."
"I think I'll wait for Matt to wake up."
With strong, rough hands he holds my face again and his tongue darts into my mouth. He tastes less of beer than last time. Our teeth collide and I move away from him, holding my mouth. He watches as the dress rides up over my legs.
The short black dress isn't very decorous when it comes to lying on top of a man. But I'm not behaving very decorously. Evan's hand slides up my leg, stroking gently.
And I've definitely had too much vodka but screw it. He's here and he's fucking hot and it's my choice. I'll deal with the emotional fall out later. I don't know if it's the alcohol, or the sexual confidence I've found from tonight - guys watching me in the Union and Evan wanting me - but I make a snap decision.
"Do you want to make it two?" I ask.
"Girls you've slept with in Leeds."
I've seen the look on Evan's face before, the night in the pub when his mask slipped a few seconds. He hesitates.
"You're saying no?" I remove my hand from where I'm trailing fingers across his muscled stomach.
"Honestly, I don't know what to say."
I tug him towards me by his shirt. I'm a bit drunk and a lot reckless but what the hell, it's about time I had some fun. "How about you hit me with some poetry, I hear the girls really..."
"Ness. Shut up." He drags me onto him and crushes his mouth on mine, the breath sucked from my lungs as the urgency of his kiss overwhelms me. The tiniest amount of self-control I had just disappeared.
