A spoiled teen heiress, famous for her party-girl antics and tabloid headlines, is forced by her ever-absent mogul father to take on a different low-wage job every week for a year, if she wants any hope of receiving her trust fund.
“In my seventeen years of life I can remember four times that my father has said he loved me…and every single one of them occurred on national television.”
Coming-of-age in front of America has never been easy for famous teen heiress Lexington Larrabee. The tabloids love portraying her as the spoiled, bratty princess who has a knack for landing herself in trouble (her most recent cover-story debacle was crashing her brand new Mercedes convertible into a convenience store on Sunset Blvd). And even though it’s true Lexi has never worked a day in her life and she has the world at her finger tips, she’s never had the one thing she really wants—her father’s love. But on her eighteenth birthday, Lexi’s world is turned upside down when her ever absent father decides to take a more proactive approach to her life. If she wants to receive her beloved trust fund, she will have to take on a different low-wage job every week for a year. It’s bad enough that she has to work as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast-food employee, but now her father has assigned Luke, the annoying, albeit moderately attractive college intern, to keep tabs on her. And now that Lexi has fifty-two reasons to hate her father, will this heiress learn she really only needs one reason to love him?
