Jamal Ford has narrowed his love life down to a science through the creation of his 30-Day Dating Plan, a guide intended to weed out the drama queens, gold-diggers, and baby mamas from his ideal: part goddess, part sex kitten, and part Stepford Wife. The shallow, fun-loving 33-year-old knows he's one of Charlotte, North Carolina's most eligible bachelors, and he won't settle for anything less than the trophy wife of his dreams.
Catherine "Catt" Cason has never let anything slow her down. The brilliant chemist takes being labeled "the cute fat girl" in stride as she fasttracks her way to a top position with her cosmetic company, Telegenic. While she would enjoy the love of a good man, Catt refuses to risk heartbreak again just to have a warm body at her side. Besides, why settle for the love of an earthly man when she is the fiancée of Christ?
When Jamal is paired with Catt to launch a new product for work, it's "loathe" at first sight. She thinks he's arrogant and shallow; he thinks she's a sanctimonious killjoy. However, what each believes they want may not be what God knows they need. In this game of love, rules don't exist, and no heart is safe. The Lord is speaking, but will they be too caught up in their own agendas to listen?
