O's sultry voice makes men hot, hard, and horny.
As Hollywood's favorite phone sex operator, she gets calls all night long--from producers, actors, entertainment lawyers, and agents who first need to hear her steamy words of encouragement in order to perform like the studs they portend to be.
In truth, O is Nina Harte, a struggling actress who has put her own career on hold so that her husband, Nathan, can pursue his own dreams of stardom. To make ends meet, she works two jobs around the clock--as a cashier in a posh Beverly Hills grocery store by day, and the seductive O by night.
When Nathan's career takes off, so does he--leaving Nina and their four-year-old son, Jake, for his diva costar, Katerina McPherson. As "Kat 'n' Nat" are crowned the media's newest celebrity sweethearts, Nina's life hits the skids, particularly when Kat labels Nina an unfit mother in order to win custody of Jake, just so that she can have that coveted celeb accessory: an adorable child--sans any stretch marks, that is.
The one person who does care about Nina is Sam Godwin, Nathan's agent. A Hollywood player with both a heart and a conscience, Sam feels guilty for putting Nat in Kat's path in the first place. Then again if he hadn't, Nathan wouldn't be starring in a movie directed by the legendary Hugo Schmitt--who, unbeknownst to either Sam and Nathan, is one of O's most loyal phone sex customers.
Although smitten by Nina, Sam is determined to convince Nathan to go back to her. But will he feel that way when he finds out that Nina and O are one and the same?
