Growing up with all the freedom that his social position afforded, Xia Yao built quite a reputation for himself, though not one that brought his family much honor. A notorious playboy, Xia Yao might have spent his entire life as such, if he hadn’t experienced an unexpected change of heart. Determined to make a fresh start, Xia Yao makes every effort to change his ways, but even that can’t hide his many charms. Inadvertently capturing the fancy of Yuan Ru (Li Qiao Dan), Xia Yao soon finds himself the object of her affection. Desperate to win Xia Yao’s heart, Yuan Ru enlists the help of her brother, Yuan Zong (Jason Xu), a former special forces soldier who now runs his own bodyguard training company. Convinced that with her brother’s help, Yuan Ru can win Xia Yao’s heart, the determined young lady does her best. Unfortunately for her, Yuan Ru isn’t the one destined to break down the walls around Xia Yao’s heart. Brought together by Yuan Ru’s enthusiasm, Xia Yao and Yuan Zong find themselves growing closer over time. With eyes only for Xia Yao, what will Yuan Ru do when she realizes the man she holds in her heart has fallen for her brother instead?
