Too preoccupied with her studies, Lila has never had much time for boyfriends. After graduating from Princeton, Lila moves to New York City and begins her job search. Innocent and naïve, she is swept away by an uncharacteristic bloom of total abandon as soon as she meets the tall, dark-eyed CEO of Wolfe Enterprises. Within the hour, Lila finds herself ensconsed in a job-cum-relationship with a tycoon Adonis who can’t get enough.
