After brain surgery leaves business man, Spencer Michaels, without his sight, life as he knows it is over. He's forced to temporarily hand over full ownership of his shared company to his younger brother, Scott, whilst simultaneously trying to juggle being a good Father to his 5-year-old daughter and battling a messy divorce settlement with his soon to be ex-wife, who during such a difficult time found comfort in the arms of another man.
Spencer soon finds himself at a dead end and is only made to feel worse when Scott hires Jessica Turner as his replacement, claiming the entire set up 'temporary'.
Known for her cold heart and "business now, fun later" attitude, Jessica is brutal when faced in the office and with boundaries that know no limits, Spencer immediately brands her as a bitch and a heartless one at that.
Needless to say, the pair instantly clash and with their constant bickering and insulting back and forth becoming exhausting for those around them, the pair vow to stay well out of each other's way and hope by doing so, they remain professional.
Of course, nothing is ever simple and with Scott being unavailable to attend a business trip due to personal circumstances, Spencer is forced to step in, branding him and Jessica alone for the entire weekend. Sparks soon fly and secrets are revealed; the two soon establishing they have much more in common than originally thought.
Spencer soon propositions Jessica on a rather peculiar settlement and one in which she finds herself drawn to.
It's a physical agreement and Spencer vows not to get drawn in. After all, Jessica is merely a replacement, both in business and in pleasure and with her assistance being only temporary, he cannot afford to emotionally invest in yet another woman who is bound to let him down in the end.
