Ashton is a by the book personality. He follows the rules without listening to what he feels. Gabriella listens to her heart. But refuses to follow it's directions. Less chance of getting hurt. From the first, there is always an undercurrent of attraction between Gabriella and Ashton but a hint of fear tinges the sparks. Fate has other plans. Life's Turned Upside Down is my first Anne Stone novel, but it will not be my last. She has no qualms about putting her heart in her writing. Gabriella and Ashton were no cake walk with their hidden secrets and surface aloofness, but their drama got a reaction. As I reader, I was captivated, emotionally invested and loving every moment. That's what makes a good story.
