Alone in the world, Erica Wheeler needs a job or face eviction. The aspiring actress harbored a lifelong dream of movie stardom. She knows she has the talent, all she needs is a chance. Her roommate, Amy, plots revenge on her former boss, sexy, bad-boy producer, Gunther Quill, for firing her. Together she and Erica bend the truth like a pretzel to get her a job working for Quill. He surprises her. Is he the same meanie Amy described or is he simply a smart, ambitious man on his way to the top?
One thing Gunther Quill hates is a liar. Tough, seductive and brilliant, he prides himself on being truthful. With his sharp, new assistant, Erica Wheeler, he'll soon be the most powerful producer of musicals in Hollywood and on Broadway. Not even a broken heart can get in his way, can it?
