Rachel Hoffman is a smart and talented economics journalist, but a lay-off forces her to take a job with a NYC gossip magazine to make ends meet. When she’s assigned to spend a week with Leo Hanlon, the intensely private CEO of a private jet company, she assumes it will be just another run-of-the mill interview. The one thing she doesn’t know: her boss has led the notoriously press-shy Leo to believe the resulting story will be a business profile, not a gossip article.
Leo Hanlon hates doing publicity, but with his company still reeling from a PR nightmare, he knows he can’t afford to say no to what he believes is a write-up in a major economics magazine. As they jet from the high rises of Manhattan to the sandy beaches of a tropical island, Rachel and Leo realize the simple business agreement is developing into something far more complicated.
