Be careful what you wish for…
Victoria is in her mid-twenties and fed up with her humdrum life. Bored with her dead-end job, her lack of success and most of all, she is annoyed with her apathetic boyfriend James, who just wants to chug beer and watch sports all day.
Having no idea how she got to where she currently is in life, all she knows now is that she is destined for more.
This close to losing her sanity and is barely managing to keep body and soul together, she knows instinctively that something has to change real fast, or she will implode.
But Vicky isn’t going just to sit around and wait for that to happen. So when the opportunity comes for her to escape, she doesn’t hesitate to take it.
It all starts when she is invited to attend a conference with her friend in New York. Grateful for any opportunity to leave her life behind, even for a short while, she quickly accepts and heads out to the Big Apple.
But New York has so much in store for her. Not all of it is good. Although she didn’t realize it yet. Until she meets Aleksander Price.
Successful, confident and ambitious, he is everything her boyfriend isn’t and the contrast is so glaring that she begins to have doubts if she really was in the right relationship. That doubt would trigger a series of events that would propel her into the rollercoaster that will define her stay in New York.
Upon returning home, the fates seem to be aligning as Vicky wins the opportunity to study a business course in New York. Without a second thought, she ends her relationship with James, cuts all ties with her previous city and takes the plunge.
In New York, Vicky studies hard and sees a lot of Aleksander. She has never been more excited about a man in her entire life. Before long, she falls in love with him and in a whirlwind romance, he breaks up with his girlfriend, moves Vicky into his plush penthouse apartment and promises to find an investor for her business idea.
Even though there are glaring red flags, Vicky is head-over-heels in love with Aleksander to care. He could do no wrong.
She has no idea she is in for a rude awakening. The reality of her relationship is about to show its true face, and it isn’t going to be pretty.
When Aleksander starts to lose interest and stops coming home some nights, Vicky would eventually be forced out of her cocoon of infatuation and she begins to see Aleksander in a new light, and it is unflattering and disconcerting. He was a chronic liar and his business courses were worse than useless.
Worst of all, he was cheating on her.
As Vicky’s world starts to fall apart, she comes up with a scheme to expose the dirty dealings of Aleksander to the world. But will she succeed in bringing him down and exacting her revenge?
