Description

Ross loves Iliana. And, to his amazement - she is sane, gorgeous and met him in entirely undignified circumstances - she loves him too. He asks her to marry him. She says yes. Life is improving by the minute. They have the most romantic wedding imaginable - an overgrown meadow, fabulous food cooked in pits by the groom himself, twelve regretful exes and two hundred and fifty merry drunken guests dancing till dawn. And then, a fortnight later, Ross is driving Iliana home, takes his eyes off the road for a second, and the trouble starts.show more
