London aristocrat Mia Clementine does gorgeous for a living. Her cousin's etiquette firm, The Inner Gentleman, works small miracles on rough–around–the–edges superstars, and Mia is their most sought–after stylist. But selfish, overpaid soccer player Josh Watkins? He's in a league of his own. And thanks to her rep, his team wants Mia to wave her magic wand and turn their celebrated player and we do mean playerinto a changed man before his next charity gig. That means: ∗ No more fighting. ∗ No more swearing. ∗ No more "allegedly" shagging a page–three girl at a casino restaurant. But just when Mia thinks Josh is kicking his old habits, he turns the game around. Suddenly, Mia's looking for meaning in her society–page existence. Sure, she's an expert in pushing the posh life, but maybe it's time to not play by the rules.
