˗ˏˋhe is her darknessˎˊ˗

Ria refuses to fall in love again. To her, love is a trap. A curse that buries itself in your soul and rips you apart when you least expect it.

Emotional commitment must be avoided. Use men the way they've used her. That's her moral. But a single encounter can change everything and everything can change her heart.

After months of sulking over a devastating breakup, Ria comes across another philophobic like herself. Ashton, a man with sadness in his eyes despite the mischief in his smile.

He brings a new feeling to her. A warmth that she can't describe and a pull she can't escape. So she lets her guard down for one night of heartless passion. After that, she's never supposed to see him again.

But nothing is ever as it seems and the same can be said for her one-night fantasy. Once Ashton steps into her life, it's no longer in her power to avoid him. And when their paths cross again, she can't bring it upon herself to leave him.

Yet the closer Ria gets to Ashton, the more she sees beyond his sensitive smiles and tender affection. He's hiding things from her. Dark secrets that could ruin them forever.

Ah romance. (҂⌣̀_⌣́)

Despite how harsh, lonely, frustrating and heartbreaking it can be, we all kind of love it, right?

That is exactly the case for our two protagonist, Ashton and Ria. One with a brooding past and the other with a tragic heartbreak. They both are two of the most emotional people you'll ever meet, yet they're terrified of one thing. Love.

And aren't we all? Afraid of the potential heartbreak? Afraid to find that person who could possibly make you want to say forever. One person can open your heart, rip it apart or both...
