Fired from her dream job, broken-hearted Smithie goes back home to recover from the shock. Her new job is as dead-end as they come. But her new boss is something entirely different. She's finding that he's so very easy to love. And that's a problem. Don't get vulnerable with a guy. Don't tell him your secrets, your dreams. You do and something always clicks with the guy and he begins to think he'd like to play Prince Charming. But the second it gets real, the second things get hard, he'll hurl the mask at you and run like his life depended on it.
