Let's be realistic: an assassin doesn't get a happily ever after, and this is not a fairy tale.
For the past two years, Jen Calley has set aside her morals to work as an assassin so she can pay for her mother's chemotherapy treatments. The fact that her targets have been horrible people does nothing to relieve her guilt. But when Jen's next mark is Will Bryant, her celebrity crush and the star of her favorite TV show, Gemini Divided, her two lives collide spectacularly.
Steeling herself against her swooning inner fangirl, Jen goes undercover on the Gemini Divided set as Will's new assistant. To both her delight and dismay, he's even kinder and more down to earth in person than she ever hoped. But now her resolve to kill him evaporates every time she looks in his eyes...which is a problem, because Jen's choices are: a) kill a man she genuinely likes and keep her mother alive, or b) somehow save him, putting her in grave danger and leaving no way to fund her mother's treatments.
No pressure, right?
With her mysterious employer getting impatient, Jen is given an ultimatum: she has two days to kill Will, or the deal's off. Two days to decide what choices she can and cannot live with; two days to figure out just how far she'll allow herself to be pushed before she pushes back...
