*An enemies to lovers romance*

Travis King is the worst kind of asshole.
He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards.
He’s cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes.
And I hate him.

It wouldn’t matter so much if he were avoidable.

But considering he’s my older brother’s best friend and roommate, I see him more than I’d ever want to.

His sculpted abs and gorgeous eyes are a waste on such an egotistical man, which makes me hate him even more.

Even though I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten, the feelings weren’t mutual and he’s always made that very clear.

He’s always loved getting under my skin and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed.

I’ve succumbed to his manwhore ways, but that doesn’t change a thing.

Because the King is about to get played at his own game—and lose.

Checkmate.

Closer was written about an ex girlfriend, where they had this great chemistry, yet the relationship as a whole is completely toxic. However, after 4 years of not seeing each other, they try to pick up where they left off, yet it still doesn’t work out.

The significance of this song is that Travis and Viola have an absolutely amazing chemistry, yet at the same time they honestly can’t stand each other. They know without a doubt that if they come together, the chemistry will be off the charts, the sex would be amazing, yet the toxicity could potentially devour them. It’s all about the risk of getting closer to each other, and attempting to conquer these risks and fears.
