Once upon a time, at a fledgling fitness club in Manhattan, an architect arrived to supervise the installation of the rock-climbing wall that would make the club a famous destination. She brought her ferrets, intending to stay with her fiancé and start their life together. Unfortunately, Leo had moved into his new girlfriend’s place, leaving his roommate Thom to deliver the bad news. They make a deal to share the apartment while she’s in town. Thom thinks it’ll be fine so long as his dog doesn’t eat her ferrets. That sounds good until Annika begins to organize everything, including him—until he discovers they have to work together, too. Their romance was the basis of the legend at F5F about finding love at the club.
On the eve of exchanging their vows at the newly re-opened and thriving fitness club, Annika and Thom share the story of their partnership of opposites, an unlikely romance resulting from a most inconvenient arrangement.
