 Desperate to get back to New York, Rachel Carver strikes a deal with her family’s sworn enemy, business superstar Jacob Rush. However, their families’ bitter rivalry threatens to derail everything.


 Budding New York financial analyst Rachel Carver, watches as her dream job is ripped from her grasp by a massive scandal. With no one willing to hire her, she reluctantly moves home to work for her manipulative father, Mason Carver of Carver Capital.

Meanwhile, business superstar Jacob Rush faces the crashing stock prices of his company, Rush Toys, after a plan of his goes awry. Jacob’s father, Isaac, gives Jacob one last chance to fix the problem. Jacob swears to do whatever it takes to turn this around.

Seeing their desperation, Mason decides to strike against his enemy Isaac. He employs Rachel to get a deal with Jacob to finally prove his dominance over Isaac, once and for all. Rachel agrees on one condition: a guaranteed job for her back in New York.

With no other options, Jacob goes behind his father’s back and agrees to work with Rachel. After a rocky start, Jacob and Rachel find working together is surprisingly effective. Yet, as their partnership quickly blossoms into an unexpected romance, new pressures arise. Jacob’s jealous brother, Dom, works to expose Jacob’s secrets to his father.
