Mona Cartwright is completely distraught when she finds out that real estate tycoon Carter Valentine is blackmailing her to get his hands on her thriving business since she's refused to sell. But when a brush of luck gives her the upper hand, Mona reverses the roles and begins to dish out a little deception of her own. While watching as her plans of payback come together from the sidelines, she discovers that she is wedged in the middle of a complex web of deception that goes deeper than she would've ever imagined.
Carter Valentine went into the Soothing Touch Massage parlor with one thing on his mind—to persuade the owner to sell.

It didn’t take long for Carter to begin rethinking his plan of blackmail and finding another way to get a hold of Mona’s business. Before he had a chance to weigh his options, he lost his only trump card against her and all hell breaks loose.
Time becomes more precious than ever in Carter’s quest to get a firm grasp on the downward spiraling mess he’s created. For fear of being exposed and his reputation ruined because of their tawdry mess of deeds in the Red Room, Carter and Mona come to the conclusion that maybe they should be working together to save both their businesses and possibly their lives.
