A girl’s 21st birthday is meant to be a time in her life that she never forgets.  At least, that’s what Abigail Knight thought, until her father gives her some bad news; a business deal has gone horribly wrong and now he has people out to get him. 

Worried that someone will try and get to him through his daughter, Mr Knight hires protection in the form of undercover cop, Alexander Chase.  Not surprisingly, Abigail is dead set against the idea, believing that the looming presence of Officer Chase will ruin her party.  Taking on board his daughter’s worries, her father alters the plan.  In order for Alex to fit in, he will no longer be just her protection; he will be her boyfriend. 

Deciding that the new plan will be the lesser of two evils, Abigail reluctantly agrees, leaving her and Alexander just two days to get to know one another.  Two days in which to learn enough about each other to fool even her best friend into believing they are a devoted couple.

Abi goes into the plan thinking it’s just a way to appease her father.  Alex believes it to be just another undercover assignment, but from the moment they meet, the attraction between them in undeniable.

Both Abi and Alex try their hardest to remain platonic, knowing that once the party is over, they will go their separate ways, but as the sparks continue to fly, they both find it harder to maintain the charade. 

Alex knows that getting involved with Abi could spell the end of his career, but the more time he spends with her, the more he wants her. 

Can two people bought together by a charade really make something real?
