Copywriter Liz Pemberley is approaching burnout, so what has she got to lose by agreeing to air her romantic dirty linen on Bad Date, America’s hottest reality TV show, especially with a million dollar jackpot at stake?  Her two roommates, Jem-a college professor; and Nell, a trust fund baby-decide to audition as well, figuring it’ll be a hoot if they all were to be cast on the show.

But Liz soon discovers that the competition may be too hot to handle -on several levels-when she meets co-contestant Jack Rafferty, a handsome Miami restaurateur. How can Jack and Liz play the mating game while appearing on Bad Date, when a no-fraternization clause in their TV contract means courting another contestant means courting catastrophic scandal?
