Her life changes when she finds a job at a well established technology company as a secretary to a cold stern billionaire; Jason Pierce. He is unfriendly, a perfectionist and he does not tolerate much. He gives Emily a hard time but that does not scare her off. She is determined to keep her job, even if she does not like her boss. Her dislike for him turns into curiosity. She is curious about him. She wants to know why he is the way he is. Her inquisition almost costs her job but she does not give up.
Sexual tension builds up between the two of them and they both finally give in. As they continue to work with each, their attraction towards each other becomes stronger and irresistible even though they dislike each other.
