Journalist Margaret loves her job, writing for a respected newspaper in Johannesburg. There’s only one problem: her co-worker, Jagger Villain. Is that even his real name? she often wonders. Jagger spends his days writing fluff pieces on everything from the worst-rated barber in Johannesburg to speed dating to male sex toys. To make matters worse, they share a cubicle and a desk, and every day he finds new ways to drive her to distraction. She needs a vacation!

Luckily, the annual company quiz night is coming up, and first prize is an all-expenses paid trip to a resort in Zanzibar. Margaret has never met a quiz night she can’t win, and she’s determined to win this one for herself and her mother. But she’s never competed against Jagger. When they end up tied, Margaret is faced with the fact that she will have to spend her vacation on the same island as Jagger, and whoever he decides to bring. However, his plus one isn’t what she expected. It’s not some girl of the moment, it's his father. That’s when the entire situation goes from farce to horror show: their parents fall in love and decide to get married.

Suddenly Margaret and Jagger go from co-workers who dislike each other (but also ‘accidentally’ had sex one night,) to step siblings who dislike each other (but also ‘accidentally’ had sex one night!). But maybe they don’t dislike each other as much as they initially thought they did?
