Who likes it when some new co-worker comes in and starts telling you that you’ve been doing your job wrong? That’s what chemist Catt Cason gets when Jamal Ford joins the R&D department at Telegenic, an up-and-coming cosmetics company in Charlotte. Catt has just been promoted from the teen fragrance line to the women’s line. Jamal thinks her creations are unsophisticated bubble gum scents. Catt is stunned by Jamal’s arrogance and the way he doesn’t hesitate to get in her face with his opinions. Catt complains to management, but she is told that Telegenic has paid a lot of money to lure Jamal and that she will have to learn to work with him. And Catt gets no sympathy from her friends at the the company– Jamal is good looking, charming, and sexy, and half the women in the company want to date him.
Jamal is not the only man making trouble for Catt. Her father, Pastor Jeremiah Cason, thinks that it is time for his only child to marry and produce some grandchildren. Pastor Cason is sure that that his assistant, Eldon James, would be a perfect husband for Catt and begins to put the two of them together in all kinds of situations. Catt is a dutiful daughter and a believing Christian, but she knows that there is no real spark between her and the young minister. Although she resists it, Catt feels an electricity between her and her arrogant, sexy co-worker. Her faith and self-restraint are put to a test when Catt and Jamal are sent on a three week promotional tour for a new product line. Pastor Cason gathers a group of prayer warriors to pray for her, but little do they know what the trip has in store for Catt–and for Jamal. This will be a road trip that goes a long way toward healing some old hurts, and advancing their careers—and just maybe something else.
