Author and self-help guru Joanna Moret wrote the playbook on love — literally! So, when Joanna is presented with an opportunity for her own TV show, she fears that the recent breakup with her boyfriend will ruin her image as a relationship expert and turns to Ted, a morning show producer, for help. Ted poses as Joanna’s boyfriend for the holidays as she plans her future boss’s Christmas gala, and in exchange Joanna agrees to help Ted win back his ex-girlfriend. Despite their many differences, Joanna and Ted form a connection — even though she meets Del, who is a better fit for her according to her own book, and Ted’s ex-girlfriend considers giving him another chance. Joanna finds herself in an unexpected holiday love triangle and must decide if she should embrace what is perfectly imperfect or follow her own playbook on the path to love.
