And holy flippin crap almost 60 reviews for 6 chapters? you all are AMAZING. I love my readers! If you all hadn't guessed this story is sort of based off of the movie The Holiday with Jude Law and Cameron Diaz. It has some elements of it to it and some of the lines of dialogue I were directly inspired from the movie. If you haven't seen the movie it's excellent. The first scene is inspired from a scene in the movie which made me giggle immensely so I used it with my own special twists upon it! Hope you all enjoy!
