Rosie Mayford is a single British woman living in London who owns an employment agency called Odd Jobs. When Rosie attends a work related Christmas party with her boyfriend Jonathan she finds herself on the receiving end of Jonathan's lecherous boss, Sidney Smythe Lawrence. On several past occasions "Horrible Boss" has subjected her to sexual harassment. Unfortunately, Jonathan cares more about salvaging his job and protecting his boss' hide than he does about Rosie's feelings. When Sidney makes a blatant attempt to kiss Rosie she smashes her Jimmy Choo shoe down on Sidney's foot. As Jonathan consoles Sidney and advises Rosie to leave the party, a handsome and charismatic doctor named Luke Benton steps in and rescues Rosie. Luke scoops up Rosie in his arms and they head to McDonalds in Picadilly Circus where they bond over funny stories and coffee. When Jonathan dumps Rosie the day after the incident at the Christmas party, Rosie is forced to reexamine her life and her romantic choices. As Rosie grapples with her mother's financial crisis, her single cousin Elaine's unexpected pregnancy and her realization that she's slept with all the men sitting at her table at a wedding reception, she is forced to deal with issues related to commitment and intimacy.
