The horse he rode was swift, causing the tails of his long coat to billow out behind him as the black steed raced across open expanses of land and towards a small sea port.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Justin Timberlake has taken the phrase to heart when he became involved with Megan Currie. Unfortunately for Justin, being involved means he’s just another name in her black book. Jaded and guarded Megan spends her days with her cigarettes and her nights with different men. Justin’s struggling to move on and start new, yet somehow finds himself at her doorstep every chance he gets. Breaking down her walls isn’t going to be an easy job, especially when the underlying hurt isn’t something she’s looking to share. The feeling has left them both feeling screwed but at the very least, it's going to be a wild ride.

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride; always the best friend, never the girlfriend; always ‘one of the guys’, never ‘the one’; by the time I was 18 I knew that I had to get used to being second best, at everything.

Yeah that’s right, he decided for me that I wasn’t going to settle for anything less than what I ‘deserved’.
