Having been left at the altar in her wedding dress, Katie Bloom has spent the last two years struggling with her self-worth. Little does she know her life is about to drastically change once Jesse Mayes, rock star extraordinaire, enters it (and quite literally, her).

Coerced into participating in Jesse’s rather intimate music video, Katie never imagined making out with a stranger in front of a camera crew as a means for her to heal her broken heart. The sex is fake but the chemistry between her and Jesse is so real it’s terrifying, and soon the steamy video is topping the charts. Somewhere along the way, Katie agrees to pose as Jesse’s girlfriend for six weeks while he promotes his new album.

Madelyn “My friends call me ‘Midge’” Knightly is the daughter of a renowned, cutthroat Hollywood producer; however, six years ago, she chose to walk away from the glamour and shiny promises of that lifestyle in order to pursue her dream of becoming an author.

Brody Prescott, CEO of a successful online dating company, finds both his reputation and the future of his company on the line due to a sudden (false) scandal that puts his professionalism and moral ethics in question. The implications of this scandal, together with his reputation as a heartless playboy, compel him to sign up as the first participating bachelor in a reality TV show called “Marry Your Billionaire”. Funnily enough, this TV production (which strikingly resembles the hit dating series “The Bachelor”) is a project that belongs to Midge Knightly’s father.
