    Summary

    At 22, Dani Clayton suffers an existential crisis that has her fleeing everything she has ever known in search of freedom, purpose...and maybe even love.

    Dani never expected that she'd wind up teaching at a secondary school in England. She also never expected to have her life turned on its head after a chance meeting with a mysterious and confident young woman who, unfortunately, just so happens to be a student at her school.

    Summary

    Jamie wants to be pissed at her, as she should be. The sweet irony of someone who is terrible with coffee actually being hired at a coffee place isn’t lost on her. But there’s two problems: 1) Dani came to work today wearing a cropped black tee, meaning there is the smallest sliver of skin that shows between her shirt and waistband each time she leans over the counter, and 2) Jamie is really fucking gay.

    (In which Dani is the new girl at a small coffee shop in London and Jamie is the shift lead who takes no shit.)

    Summary

    Dani thinks something crackles between their shared looks, turbulent and magnetised, and suddenly the brunette is turning to face her fully, just in time for the chorus of the song—the chorus that, paired with the singer's daring look, nearly kills Dani on the spot. 

    "Do you wanna touch?
    Do you wanna touch?
    Do you wanna touch me there, where?" 

    A thought comes, unbidden but entirely honest, blaring in Dani's ears: Yes. 

    — 🎸 —

    Dani's a down on her luck teacher from America who just wants to not have to worry about making rent for another month. Jamie's the vocalists of a rock-and-roll cover band who isn't necessarily trying to make it big, they just want to have fun and see where life takes them. They meet in a tiny dive called the Manor and—well, the rest is history.
