Patricia Green is a middle-class, middle-aged romance novelist with writer's block.
William Crowney, aka "Cougar", is a teenage runaway who has been surviving life on London's streets as a rent boy.
Their lives couldn't be more different. But when, under extraordinary circumstances, William is invited into Patricia's suburban home, they realise they have more in common than loneliness and desperation: both have a desire for love.
Through a twisted hell of home truths, William and Patricia slowly begin to understand, even respect, each other.
An unlikely friendship forms - one that gives both the strength to carry on.

Beautifully artistically intertwined story. I thought I would just flip through a few pages before bed, but I couldn't stop reading and finished an hour later.

Picked it up almost accidentally in a book shop and was drawn in pretty quickly by the cover. The story didn't let me down and after finishing I felt like reading it again immediately, looking for more where there definitely is more... Recommended read, contains stuff to think about.
