  • Pour échapper à des parents toxiques, Grace, londonienne d'origine, s'est installée à Édimbourg. Elle est éditrice de romance à son compte, entourée d'amis très proches et habite un appartement qu'elle aime particulièrement. Cette vie que Grace a su créer avec force et détermination semble en tout point idéale. Il n'y manque, peut-être, qu'un petit ami aux qualités essentielles à ses yeux : compréhensif, protecteur et drôle. Tout l'opposé de son nouveau voisin, en somme. Logan, un don juan notoire, est le manager d'une boîte de nuit du quartier. Il est impoli, prétentieux, et malgré tout... terriblement séduisant.
