Drake Yu. Why would Drake call her after ... what, five years? Six?
Venus heard in his voice that resonance that was almost a growl, that titanium-hard determination to get what he wanted. And he usually got what he wanted. The voice said: "I want you to work for me."
Not this time... If it was a choice between Drake and McDonald's - she'd choose french fries. She'd never work for him again. It would take an act of God.
Venus Chau is determined to start her own game development company and launch the next Super Mario-sized phenomenon. However, she needs an investor to back her idea. When Drake Yu, an old nemesis, approaches Venus with a contracting opportunity at his sister's startup, the offer to become chief technology officer tempts Venus to think the unthinkable.
Venus would rather throw away her PS3 than work for Drake again...except Grandma bribes Venus to do this favor for Drake's wealthy family with a coveted introduction to the most respected investor in the game industry. It's also a short job - only a few months - so Venus won't have to stand Drake's presence for very long.
But one wild youth group, a two-faced assistant, and Grandma's determined match-making threaten to make them both fail - or go insane. With the encouragement of her three cousins, Lex, Trish, and Jennifer, Venus discovers that even a wounded heart can undergo a beautiful transformation.
