As if it wasn’t bad enough to be deemed the “most single person” at her magazine’s office, budding reporter Penny has now been tapped to write a series of features called “The Dating Game.” From speed dating to Tinder, old-fashioned matchmakers to up-and-coming “dark dating,” Penny now has to go on a lot of dates. Silver lining: meeting new people should be fun, right? But running into her old rival, George, at her first dating event is decidedly not. Not only does the arrogant know-it-all have zero trouble attracting women, wherever Penny goes, somehow he just. Keeps. Showing. Up.
Geo knows he’s right on the cusp of writing success with the chance to have his own syndicated column. All he has to do is follow his agent’s ideas for showcasing different dating avenues, and he’ll pull in enough to help his sister’s non-profit women’s shelter get off the ground. Sure, his itinerary is starting to look strangely similar to his old rival Penny’s, but all’s fair in love and syndication, right?
The more they look for love in all the wrong places, though, the more they start to wonder if it was right in front of their noses all along. Still, the brutal dating scene just might end them, if these two don’t kill each other first.
Penny is a journalist whose newest assignment is a series of articles about the different ways to meet your significant other and the success or failure that these options bring and if she happens to find love then she will receive the magazine cover which would be a boost to her career. If that isn’t uncomfortable enough she keeps running into her former friend/co-worker who she believes stole the promotion that was owed to her.
George is now a freelance writer whose agent has arranged for him to write a series of articles on dating in the modern age as well however they always seem to find themselves in the same place at the same time. If he is successful he will be compensated both financially and career wise with a promotion to a newspaper in New York.
George and Penny decide to put their animosities aside and work together so that they can both reach their goals. But when their professional relationship starts to feel personal will they need to choose between love and their careers?
This is a fun and flirty look at the complications of love and dating that is sure to bring a smile to your face.
