Tanya Wood is a failing author and an alcoholic pessimist. Her entire life revolves around screwing things up and making sure that every new person wanting to be in her life is scared off before they can even start. Griffin Gwyn is the top dog of 'Gwyn Corporations' which he took on with his brothers when their father passed. He's sleek, smart and dirty rich. His entire life is planned out, every little crinkle ironed away to perfection. No loopholes, no problems and no faults. That is until Tanya comes stumbling into the picture. For some reason Griffin can't get the back-talking, irritating woman out of his mind. She's a mess - one big, hot, toxic mess. But that only drives him closer. And he knows they're just going to crash and burn. But he wants that. He wants her seared into every part of his mind just as he wants himself marked onto every part of her being. Together they will be suffocating - a whirlwind of trouble. But there's something beautiful about it. And that beauty is worth fighting for.
