Scarlett has got some issues to say the least. She lives her life in her past and she is always waiting to die. There are a few things she enjoys like her family but even they are a compilation of bad memories and sore spots of her past. Roman enters her life through her brother-in-law, and ex-boyfriend, and forces just about everything to change. Love is the last she wanted.
