After years of working at the US Embassy in London, 42-year-old American Ivy Cross is desperate for change. She longs to recapture her adventurous spirit and spice up her life before this little rut turns into a gaping chasm.
Madrid-based CEO Ruben Alegre both infuriates and intoxicates her, and if he only lived closer she'd consider risking her heart.
When the opportunity for an incredible new job in Berlin arrives in the form of sexy Christof Brandt, she wonders if the offer is too good to be true.
Will she find a future with Ruben? Start a new career in hip and gritty Berlin? There are no easy answers, but Ivy can't deny that her life is about to change in a very big way.
