Director Maggie Sullivan needs a new bachelor ASAP for her show Finding Mrs. Right. Her first choice is married so she turns to her second choice Colorado cowboy Griffin McAlister. Griff tells her he is uninterested and refuses to hear her pitch. However, his position on the show changes when his mom needs money for her cancer treatments. Reluctantly Griff accepts the gig of ten episodes at 3K per show though he has no plans to wed the chosen bride or for that matter ever Finding Mrs. Right.

However, at first sight Griff is in shock when he finds himself attracted to Maggie. She reciprocates his desire as he wants to kiss her and likewise she wants him too; though both know that is a mistake. As the show goes on with him as the bachelor seeing ten beautiful women, they fall in love but he must overcome his commitment issues and she must overcome her belief he never would choose her over the beauties; then there is the lawsuits that would follow.

This is a fun reality TV contemporary romance starring two likable lead characters and a strong support cast. Fans will enjoy this engaging tale as the everywoman wins the heart of a reluctant cowboy over the perfect size 1s.
