This was a cute story with the premise of mistakeningly entering a room thinking you'd be spending the night with one person and finding out it was someone else.

Ellie, out scouting a location for a movie shoot, decides to give into temptation and spend the night with a co-worker who has been shamelessly flirting with her. She enters a room she thinks is her co-worker and has the most spectacular night of her life. Unfortunately, when daylight comes so does the realization that she took advantage of a complete stranger the night before.

Ruben is a wealthy real estate magnet who doesn't have a permanent home and generally doesn't have time for anything social. So when he's awakened during the night to the best sexual experience he's ever had, he knows he wants to learn a little bit more about the woman who snuck into his room.

While Ruben wants to revisit the events of that night with Ellie, she wants to run the opposite direction and pretend it never happened. When Ellie discovers Ruben at her new job, she tries to run the opposite direction, but she learns that Ruben doesn't give up easily when he wants something. As he pushes for them to continue where they left off at his chateau, Ellie asks for them to build a friendship.

Ruben and Ellie are two people who tend to keep to themselves and not let anyone close. But with each other, they both find they can see past the others emotional barriers as well as relaxing enough to be themselves. Neither of them are good at relationships and having to trust that someone will do what they say they will. Up to the very end, you wonder if they can get out of their own way to see how good they are together. But it takes a huge misunderstanding for both of them to realize just how much they can't live without the other.

Cute and quick about taking a chance and chasing after what you really want.
