Lizzie’s life is busy but normal—juggling her college courses and hopes for university, and trying to work out her feelings for Tom, the sweet and almost too-nice boy who works at the local care home. But “normal” suddenly flies out the window when Liam moves in next door. Her new neighbour is dark and mysterious, and Lizzie instantly feels attracted to him. But Liam isn’t just a smoking hot piece of man candy—he’s a sylph, an air elemental, and Lizzie is the only one who can see his wings.
Liam is an oddball far from home, and Lizzie finds his arrogance and sensitivity hard to deal with; he doesn’t understand her sarcasm or her obsession with Star Wars. But Lizzie can’t deny her attraction towards him, and they grow closer, despite her reservations and despite it straining her friendship with Tom.
Is Liam truly what Lizzie wants? Are instant sparks of attraction enough, or will Lizzie end up getting burned?
