Sierra Wu shares the name of a popular fictional monster slayer (think Buffy Summers), but she’s not exactly slaying in her personal life. A complete disappointment to her family since she decided that engineering just wasn’t for her, she now runs a moderately successful greeting card store in Toronto. She’s also divorced.
However, now she finally has something that her mother finds impressive, a billionaire boyfriend. She’s dating the Colton Sanders and if her mother had her way, she would be halfway down the isle already. Sierra doesn’t really tell her family until they’ve been dating for nearly a year, always waiting for the other shoe to drop. She can’t shake the feeling that something is missing in her relationship, even before she’s surprised on a date by one of Sanders’ former business partners, who approaches her and claims she should break up with Sanders, as he isn’t who he seems and absolutely doesn’t deserve a stunning woman like Sierra.
Jake Tong didn’t really believe in love at first sight until he first lays eyes on Sierra Wu, sitting alone at a table in a restaurant. That she turns out to be the girlfriend of Jake’s asshole former boss was certainly not what Jake expected, and he does what he can to warn her that her rich boyfriend is a bad guy and she should dump him.
Sierra, naturally, does not dump Colton, but she starts to question what he does in the time they don’t spend together a lot more. She starts to research online and it isn’t too difficult to find a number of stories that suggest Colton hasn’t exactly gained his tremendous wealth through altruism and charitable works. There’s a number of articles about his explotation of his workers and other shady business practices. She also seems to keep running into Jake, although the man swears he’s not stalking her. She likes Jake, possibly more than a woman in a relationship should, but still refuses to listen to his suggestions that she kick Colton to the curb. That is, until Sierra goes to see Colton unnanounced, and finds him cheating on her with not one, but two women at the same time. She dumps him then and there and runs straight to Jake, who can’t believe his luck.
