Hope is Love (just such a great title)

Jona was from the street with no desire to live normally, while James lived like there was no tomorrow and only cared about himself. When someone attempts to murder James and he loses his memory, Jona saves his life changing the man who was selfish to selfless. Now James heart has opened to the innocent Jona and he wants to give her much much more.
