There's nothing like a strong drink after a day of hard work. Calyssa is at her favorite bar, drinking, because things aren't going swimmingly. After landing a remunerative job at Shred Unread, Calyssa was able to afford a one-bedroom apartment to prove to her mom she's now an adult. However, there's Babette who wants Calyssa fired. Mr. Grunt-the founder and CEO of Shred Unread-wants to see Calyssa first thing Monday morning. To get her fired, for sure. What would her mom think? Calyssa must keep her job. Whatever it takes. The only person who can protect Calyssa is her boss Adam, who's in Hawaii. But, what if he declines to speak up for her? Calyssa decides to blackmail him, a task for which she'll go to Hawaii, find him and get him drunk, and take some provocative photos of him naked. This is how Calyssa ends up in Honolulu with a stolen fish, a black cat, a liar, a stripper, and a gambler-searching for Adam-to only learn that Hawaii is indeed a land of creation, but also a land of destruction.
