After losing his Floridian childhood friend costume designer Candace Reid to a winery groundskeeper hunk (see Waking Up to You), Tommy “Superstud” Shane turns to her twin as his fiancĂ©e. Screenwriter Madison agrees to pretend to be his woman in order to protect his being gay. She becomes a media darling.

However, Tommy decides to end the sham engagement. Madison insists on being the SOB as his fans worship him; so she pretends to an affair that has her hated by all. To escape her unwanted notoriety she flees to Costa Rica. Also there on his honeymoon without a bride is recently dumped Chicago firefighter Leo Santori. They become a heated entry, but Hollywood stands in their way once they leave the tropics for the States.

The second “Powerpuff Girls” Forbidden Fantasies contemporary is an enjoyable heated romance starring two protagonists on the “rebound”. Although the premise of Madison taking the cheat heat feels unreasonable, fans will appreciate this fast-paced tale with a Santori (see Don’t Open Until Christmas and Overexposed) cousin as the lead male.
