After years spent concentrating on raising his daughter, Miles Kent is pitched a chance at true love on a new reality dating show. It’s an opportunity so enticing that he’s willing to risk his heart on national television. What follows is a staged disaster that paints him as a cheating scumbag and earns him the title of The Most Hated Man in America.
Determined and tenacious, Charlotte Reed’s life revolves around work and her dream of becoming partner at Chicago’s most esteemed law firm. But the heart and brain often long for different things, as Charlotte quickly learns after a chance encounter with Miles. Falling for him hard and fast, she is soon dreaming of a future with him, and an angelic two-year-old with an unfortunate potty mouth.
Then, she stumbles across the footage and snarky sound bites from the show, and finds herself wondering which version of Miles is real. Will she allow his bad press to turn their lives into must-see tv? Or can she direct her own happily ever after?
