The hero and heroine have had a horrible connection with each other since the day they met. In the beginning, the heroine is on a scholarship to a private swiss boarding school where she meets the hero's younger sister. They become great friends and later on, the sister invites the heroine to a party she knows is happening because it's one of her brother's friend's party. The heroine is against it because it's breaking the rules and sneaking out. The sister is able to get to heroine to come and they have a great time. The heroine meets the hero but both have no idea of who the other is and they share an intimate dance. When the sister calls out the hero's name and the hero finds out the heroine is underage, he places all the blame of the heroine dragging his sister to a party that would get them expelled. Now, as someone with younger siblings, I admit of quickly pinning the blame on the friend of a sibling if something were to go wrong. However, if my sibling said it was their idea and they have never been the type to lie or anything then I would believe them. I felt sorry for the sister who despite her insistence that the brother didn't believe her or trust that she was being honest with him. I even felt more sorry for the heroine who was suddenly the black plague with not only getting expelled but costing her mother's job who was the dormitory mother. You know, if I were the sister or the hero then I would have looked up more information on the heroine like her grades that would have shown she gets good grades or talk with the teachers on her performance in class. The next time the hero sees her is on a nude magazine: in my opinion there are two most common things about women who take a job like posing nude. One is they don't mind it and the Second is they desperately need the money. The hero decides to go for the first and holds a horrible image against the heroine. They reunite only when the sister is getting married and the heroine is one of the bridesmaids. The hero tries to force her to leave but she stands her ground. Next, he gives her a contract on a job that would bringing her company name up in the ranks and she takes it. He tries the whole, "You will do as I say," spiel but the heroine tells him off of what he can and can't do. I was extremely happy of her fighting off his kiss and making him look like a real jerk. When the hero finally asks why she took the nude job, she gives him her life story. After being expelled, her mother had a hard time finding a job and she having to go to college. When things started looking up, her mother's cancer became known and it was too late to do anything. The desperate heroine took the nude job in order to pay for an experimental treatment but her mother died anyway. The hero apologizes and pulls the heroine in for a hug. The hug leads to more intimate activities but by morning, the heroine is back at work. It's there that she's assaulted by one of the workers who recognizes her from the nude magazine and attempts to rape her. Luckily, the hero is there to swoop in and scare the pants off the guy. I actually agreed with the hero on firing him with the heroine against it. I mean, seriously woman!!! The man just tried to rape you and you want to keep him on hand, you're just giving him another window of opportunity. It's there the hero finds out about the negative wave the heroine suffered from men after having her pictures taken. The heroine even says that he's same as those men. The conversation goes south and the hero leaves to wallow in his guilt. They don't each other again till they're both invited to another party but end up missing each other. The hero rushes over to the heroine's house to ask for forgiveness and a chance at trying their relationship. The heroine gives him all the good questions, which he gives back with good answers. She accepts the two things from earlier and even have a wedding at the end.
