Ryan Hitmans, a successful businessman, is known for his stern, no-nonsense attitude. That all changes, however, when he hires his new secretary, Alice. Alice is bubbly, charming and shamelessly herself. Sparks fly between her and Ryan, but they both know that romance between them is forbidden. Despite their best efforts, the attraction between them is growing by the day. However, their love is put to the test when Ryan's ex-wife returns to town, hoping to rekindle their failed marriage. Alice finds herself caught between her love for Rayan and her desire to see him happy, even if it means letting him go. Adding to the complication is Ryan's business rival Greg, constantly trying to sabotage her efforts.
