As a waitress at her best friend’s diner, Elizabeth Morrow is biding her time for the perfect job to come calling. She’s a college graduate who desperately needs to put all those years of education to use and build a life for herself where she won’t have to worry about where her next meal is coming from. It sounded like such an easy plan when she left Arkansas for the big city, but after years of resumes, she is still serving burgers at Renny’s Diner in downtown Manhattan and much less optimistic that she’ll ever find anything that even resembles her dream job.
Billionaire, Charles Rhoades is awkward. He’s been that way all his life. Even all the money he has won’t make him smooth enough to be able to talk to a woman like Liz. So, when he decides to hide in a bathroom at the same time she’s walking behind him with a pitcher of tea, it’s a tea-splosion that breaks the ice for them.
Finally, he’s found someone as awkward as he is and gathers the courage to ask her out.
The more he gets to know her, the more he likes her, and to help her achieve her goal of finding a corporate job, he pulls a string and Liz gets an interview with Block and Build, one of the companies in his conglomerate. Yeah. He should tell her, but she’s so happy, and that makes him happy.
By the time he decides to come clean, a sudden hospital stay robs him of a good time to share the information.
And because fate is cruel, a woman he once dated spills the secret during a meeting with everyone Liz works with. Of course, she’s furious and ends the relationship. He lied to her. Didn’t believe in her enough to know she would find a job on her own.
Can they find their way back to each other or is the new love they found lost for good?
