AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A 'burban BrisVegas summer - too hot for cappuccinos at Temptations cafe bar, where Rosie is sick of serving stubbies to the workmen. Too hot for old Slob the boss having a perv at her boobs. Too bloody hot for Scott, the guy who dumped her long-distance, to suddenly phone and start calling her 'babe'. In some ways, Scott's always treated Rosie like dirt and yet every time she sees him she is gripped with a desire to get right inside him, deep in his blood. Rosie's best friend, Hollie, can't stand Scott, but then she's been acting weird since her brother got out of jail. The one person Rosie can rely on is Trish, who always has a joint to share, or a pill to take. Through it all, Rosie tries to stay in control, but the lure of darkness is only just under the surface ...(Backcover)
