The Other Boyfriend: Sarah Jamison is on a mission to find a boyfriend for Moira, who is her lover’s partner. And Sarah’s best friend, Monica, comes to the rescue with the perfect solution. Enter the enigmatic Mike Connor. Monica is sure that Mike will sweep Moira off her feet, leaving the way open for Sarah to be with her true love, Jeffrey. Sarah hates Mike on sight despite the fact that her body tells her otherwise. He is a romance novel “hero-type” who is smug and full of himself. But the only way to accomplish her mission is for her to work with Mike so she can be together with the man she loves. Jeffrey has promised her that the minute he can end his platonic relationship with Moira, he will be with Sarah for good; but he is having trouble letting go of the wretched woman, and Sarah feels her time is running out. She is terrified of the pending big “M” (menopause), and seeing as she’s just turned forty, and her hormones are driving her to do insane and desperate things, she is sure that it is not too far off into the future! So here she is, building a multi-level marketing business in Taiwan, and struggling with it all: a stranger in a foreign country, away from her mother and friends back in London; a reluctant lover; a drop-dead gorgeous man who might have ulterior motives for helping her, and finally, a business that seems to be dwindling. Sarah is doing it all in the name of love and the last chance to have a family, and if this means scheming and working with the devil himself, then she will do it! What she doesn’t take into account is the fact that instead of getting closer to her goal, Sarah’s feelings take a turn, and she finds herself increasingly thinking about the very man she despises the most – “the other boyfriend”.

It’s not like she wants any involvement after her recent break up with Josh, her cheating ex. Besides, it looks like Rick is trying to get back together with his ex-wife, Denise. So Cat decides to play it safe, but her heart has different ideas.
