She is the typical starving artist, barely making ends meet.
Jordan had a wonderful sensitivity to Ian's light issues with his eyes and did everything she could to make things better for him. There was also the issue of children standing between them as Ian was unwilling to compromise.
But he offers her a ridiculous amount of money so she goes along with it. He has a limited amount of time to do it because he is losing his sight. Being around her seems to dissolve Ian's stress and he's happier with her than he's been in a long time.
There's also the way she feels when she's with him. I loved their beach walk and how it showed the rapid progression of their relationship.
His nervousness was adorable and the romantic Valentine's night that he planned was so romantic. The stress was beginning to get to Jordan so badly that she couldn't focus on her painting. I loved seeing Ian's "go big" moment as he had finally made the changes he needed to in order to give Jordan and himself the future they wanted.
It really looked like things were going to work out for them until Ian seemed to start withdrawing emotionally. When they got back to San Diego their relationship dhere to deepen. She's terribly nervous about doing the modeling since she has never done it before and Ian sees that and helps her through it.
Ian is rushing to find the perfect subject for the photography book he ome working on. Jordan and Ian began the process of getting to know each other. A real plus in the book was learning more about Ian's disease in a way that fit into the book without being beaten over the head by it.
Jordan wasn't so sure about him when he first approached her. When he spotted Jordan he knew he had found the one he needed - he just had to convince her. Jordan didn't understand why he appeared to be pulling away.
One of the things I loved about Ian was the way he told her about his eyes before they got intimate. The emotions of both loiking them as it looked like love wasn't going to be enough were truly heartbreaking.
