When small-town engineer Amy Sharpe inherits a house in Toronto, she decides it’s the perfect opportunity to start over. Away from the family that takes her for granted, away from the ex who expected so much and gave little in return.
The new Amy enjoys wandering around the city and frequenting bubble tea shops, German beer halls, and dim sum restaurants. She has a group of friends who regularly meet at a cider bar.
The new Amy is also in lust with her brooding, tattooed next-door neighbor, Victor Choi. As she starts telling him about her daily adventures—and as a little kissing in the garden becomes a regular activity—Amy begins to feel more than lust for him. But she fears she’s falling into her old patterns in relationships and refuses to let herself be underappreciated again.
Is Victor really more than a hot fling? And what’s he hiding behind that grumpy exterior?
