Hanna Coleman is the fashion editor at trendy Urban Life magazine. No longer content with chronicling the rise and fall of hemlines, she devises a plan to get her name off the fashion page and onto the cover. Hanna proposes an article on `mansharing'-her answer to the shortage of eligible men in Manhattan. David Stein, her sexy boss, agrees to the idea on one condition: that she write the story from her own experience.
So Hanna, happily attached to a wonderful man for the first time in her life, must share him with another woman-and 4 million readers.
