The only commitment Mara Antonini ever made was to her career on the Vegas stand-up scene. Putting romance on the back burner, she's long accepted the role of 'the player' among her friends. Landing a gig as the emcee of a fund-raiser seemed like the perfect way to get some positive career exposure. If she happened to make a new friend with benefits along the way, so be it. She didn't count on the stunning redhead representing a rival casino throwing her off her game.

All Victoria McHenry needed was a date to her grandmother's birthday gala to keep her high-society mother off her back. But she wasn't exactly ready to dip back into the dating pool after her last disaster of a relationship. So when she's coerced into representing her family's casino at a local fund-raiser, she takes it as an opportunity to find that date. Naturally she's drawn to the charismatic comedian headlining the event.

When the women are paired up on a planning committee, Victoria proposes the Fake Date Deal: she gets her date for the soir e, and Mara gets the chance to finally shake her playgirl reputation. It's not long before hearts and emotions tangle, and soon the women find themselves wondering if the only people they are fooling are themselves.
