living the dream. My comic book shop supports me and my ailing mother, and I
have a chance to buy the strip mall it's in. For only a dollar. That is
until my dear friend and landlord dies before the sale, leaving the place to
his estranged son who plans to shut my store down and sell the building.
If only I can confront my new landlord and convince him how much the place means to me, and how much it meant to his father. But he’s ignoring my calls and my emails, so I take it one step farther and track him down in his nightclub. I should’ve done my research first.
I inherited all my dad's assets and ambition, but none of his gullibility. Some young thing tried scamming him out of a place worth millions and she thinks she can fool me. So imagine my surprise when I hit on an insanely hot woman at my nightclub and learn she's the persistent comic book shop owner I’ve been avoiding.
She stopped in to find me, but has no idea who I really am. It's time to teach her a lesson. Using a fake name, I get close to her. The only problem is, I want to keep getting closer and to do that I have to keep lying.
