Elesandra Tower has been thinking.

Thinking it's about time to get back to designing, after taking the last few years off to help build her best friend Lucas Vito's interior design company. She's been on top of her game, keeping up with the latest trends; all while booking and scheduling clients, monitoring the company's finances, keeping the staff in check and trying to keep her true feelings for Lucas a secret.

It's a shame Lucas doesn't feel the same.

He believes behind the scenes is where Elesandra shines but when a new client sees her sparkle benefiting him in more ways than one, Elesandra's world will need a remodel.
