WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
In order to save their favourite pub from closing down, four friends decide to write a female-centric erotic novel and snap it up for a large sum of money. They eventually reach that goal, but on one condition: they must let a woman do the publicity tour posing as the book’s “author”, while they must keep their real identities secret. They soon find out-of-work actress Zoe (Richards) to fit the role, and she is soon whisked into the spotlight – but as she gets more power over the situation, the guys must find a way to put things right…
