    Girl moves to new town. Girl meets Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome. Cue Happily Ever After. That's how the story goes, right? Except this is Lucy. The same Lucy whose stellar driving skills single-handedly wiped out both of her parents, leaving her with nothing but the suitcase in her hand and the screws in her skull. Not to mention that Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome - AKA Oliver - is just as annoyingly bossy as he is hot.
