Summary:

illicit affairs coverNew jobs, new cities, new relationships, and yet they cannot seem to escape one another. Will they be each other's salvation, or each other's downfall?

Inspired by the song of the same name by TS (naturally)

And that's the thing about illicit affairs
And clandestine meetings
And longing stares
It's born from just one single glance
But it dies, and it dies, and it dies
A million little times
