Genre(s): Romantic Comedy
The word deadline has taken on a whole new meaning for Alex Sheldon. He has thirty days to write a novel and get it to his publisher, or he will not be able to pay back his debts to the loan sharks who are threatening him. The pressure doesn’t seem to be helping his stalled creative process. Alex hires a woman named Emma to take dictation from him so he can work faster on the story. He has an idea for a romantic novel. Rather than just writing down Alex’s words, Emma begins to have her own ideas about which way the plot should go. The two of them argue, and their arguments are partly fueled by their own mostly unacknowledged romantic chemistry.
