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.
