Love Is Blind meets You've Got Mail in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy following two thirty-somethings who meet on a blind dating app - only to realize that their online chemistry is nothing compared to their offline rivalry.
Perpetually cheerful and eager to please, Gracie Cooper strives to make the best out of every situation. When her father dies, she sets aside her dreams of pursuing her passion for art to take over his Midtown Manhattan champagne shop. She soon finds out that the store's profit margins are being squeezed and a giant corporation headed by the impossibly handsome, but irritatingly arrogant Sebastian Andrews is proposing a buyout.
Gracie can't bear the thought of throwing away her father's dream and, overwhelmed, she seeks advice and solace from the faceless 'Sir', with whom she connected on a blind dating app where matches get to know each other before exchanging real names or photos.
But although Gracie finds herself slowly falling for Sir online, she has no idea she's already met him in real life...and they can't stand each other.

Layne (Marriage on Madison Avenue) crafts a gleefully shameless homage to Little Shop Around the Corner and You've Got Mail that sparkles like champagne fizz. Onetime aspiring artist Gracie Cooper reluctantly took over her family's Manhattan champagne shop, Bubbles & More, after her father's death. The "more" includes an art corner where she pedals her whimsical prints of colorful cocktails and New York City scenes—which bring in the only revenue keeping the struggling business afloat. Gracie's flirtatious, text-based relationship with "Sir," an anonymous and unavailable guy she met on a dating app under her own moniker, "Lady," keeps her spirits up—so she's conflicted by the instant zing of attraction she feels upon meeting Sebastian Andrews, and even more so once she learns that he's a developer looking to buy out her lease. Rom-com fans will see the resolution of this love triangle coming from a mile away, but it's so fun that they won't mind. Layne grounds her Manhattan fairy tale by surrounding Gracie with supportive friends and family who advise her to step out of her comfort zone and take a chance on love. This is a delight.
