“You’re not the boss of me…”
Single dad Jude refuses to employ a new personal assistant because they all just want to sleep with him. The only woman in his life is six-year-old Addison, his darling daughter.
Receptionist Pippa is offered the PA job by Jude’s mother, a client at the hairdresser’s where she works. It’s an offer she can’t refuse given the high salary that comes with managing a troublesome boss, and her own family responsibilities caring for a sick mother and her siblings.
Sparks fly as Jude tries to drive her away and Pippa refuses to budge.
Who’s actually the boss? Probably neither of them; not when there are meddling children around…
