In London Flash FM radio DJ Tallulah Lazenby avoided the advances her arrogant philandering boss Jeremy “Jez” Whatley-Hume the station manager until in a weak moment she slept with him.  When Tallulah informed him there will be no encores; Jez punished her because no woman says no to him.  He removed her from the Breakfast Show and replaced her with Darla on the Drivetime Show.

Tallulah files a sexual harassment complaint with the Edinburgh station owner Tristan Bamfield.  He knows Jez as the son of a family friend whose father demands Tristan fire the DJ.  At the hotel bar, Tristan and Louise meet and have sex that rocks both their worlds.  However, after she leaves, he realizes Louise lied as she is Tallulah.  The next morning, they both lose their composure leading to Tristan firing Tallulah.  Next he meets with arrogant Jez and decides something is not right; while rejecting a lawsuit, Lula considers a job in Melbourne.  Tristan digs into the books and fires embezzling Jez, but also needs Tallulah to take over the Breakfast Show.  As she negotiates her new contract, they begin to fall in love; but neither handles commitment very well after the role models of their parents.

This is a lighthearted radio romance between an executive and his top DJ; who share in common love and relationship-phobia.  Fired by Her Fling is a pleasurable British contemporary.
