Laura McCaffrey is teetering on the edge. Her venture as a personal shopper is "almost" taking off, and when she gets a brand new client - a very wealthy man with the ability to get her the contacts she needs - things are looking very good. And Laura needs a break, with her ex-husband refusing to pay child support, and bills and tuition due.
Then Laura makes a decision which at first looks just a bit irresponsible, but quickly escalates into a catastrophe. And she’s forced to confess what she’s done to her newest client, who, she’s certain, will surely fire her. And that’s if she’s lucky.
But Max Greenway is a "different" sort of man, and he sees in Laura an incredible combination of toughness and vulnerability. He thinks he knows how to deal with both of those sides, and when he suggests to Laura a "different" sort of way to handle Laura’s carelessness, she’s intrigued in spite of herself.
