Though insisting it is a mission impossible, Molly agrees to help Carter. At the resort, a transformed Molly does her best, but Jake cannot see her as a femme fatale though he finds her very pretty and intelligent. He also realizes he needs damage control following an affair with actress Skye Elliot, who insists her lover is a druggie incapable of being a CEO. However, as Jake and Molly work their own agenda they fall in love, but what will happen when the truth surfaces?

This entertaining contemporary romance stars two individuals who normally would never meet as they walk dramatically different spheres. The story line is fun to see the odd couple start off wary of one another, turn become attacted to each other, and finally realize they are in love. Though Carter's selfishness is so obviously over the top and readers will wonder how the intelligent romance writing professor fails to see it, fans will enjoy this fine tale of love between two apparent opposites.
