After busting her butt as an ad exec-and forsaking everything but peanut-butter cups-workaholic Anna Simmons finds herself out of a job. It's only for six months, of course, and the forced sabbatical should teach Anna workfe balance (as in less work, more life). But Anna can't take it. She plots the most important campaign of her career-the pretend balanced life. And she'll enlist her oh-so-hot neighbor Sam Drynan to play her fake boyfriend-it's the perfect way to convince her boss she's ready to get back in the boardroom ahead of schedule! So what happens when the make-believe make-out sessions start to feel anything but fake? And instead of sneaking into the office-she's counting the hours till she's free?
