Greta Aske has a lot going on: fear of student loans becoming too much to afford on a teacher’s salary, worrying about her brother’s divorce, and going on a string of bad dates that has her giving up on men, at least for the time being. Her focus becomes saving as much money as she can and getting good grades. Her life contains a little too much drama and she needs a break. The perfect solution presents itself: pretend to date the campus’ playboy. That’ll keep the guys away for sure.
Aaron Hill is desperate to save his baseball career, because with his dad fighting cancer, he damn well knows he can’t ask for a single penny from his parents. Baseball is his past, present, and future so when a scandal breaks out threatening his future in the MLB, he turns to his best friend for help. They stage a fake relationship to keep him out of trouble. It’s perfect, really. Greta’s taking a break from dating and Aaron needs to focus on training. Nothing could go wrong.
The issue is… the deal was that neither would fall for the other. It was all staged and they had to stick to the plan. But, when lines are crossed, what’s real and fake blurs and they are forced to face their fears. Is Greta the game changer Aaron needs?
