Derek Charles is a hard working man, employed as a asset manager in a private company. He is very happy with his beautiful wife, Sharon, and only son, and because of his hard work he just got a huge promotion. But suddenly he gets a temporary worker who is both attractive and smart, and Derek is understandably impressed with her and also finds himself physically drawn to her. However, this new girl is desperate to get close to him - at any cost. Written by alfiehitchie

Trailer got me in ,but movie didn't pull me in
25 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

The trailer made the movie seem GREAT!!However it was LONG & DRAWN OUT to say the least!If the plot was thicker , and there wasn't SO much down time between interesting scenes , it would have been OK.You really don't get to feel like you 'know' the characters very well and it was so long that there wasn't nearly enough in the movie to keep me interested for even half the time!I would watch it as a Lifetime movie , although sad to say I don't think it would cut it!Honestly, my friend & I had completely HAD IT by the time it neared the end and got up & left before it was even over , and we had been watching it for nearly 2hours!
