Heat Factor: The heat comes from the plot…not the romance.

Character Chemistry: They just kind of weirdly click, but if I were their friend I’d be calling red flag after red flag.

Plot: Artist rescues a bride hiding in a tree on what was supposed to be her wedding day. Ex-bride is escaping a forced marriage to a dangerous mafia mobster man.
