After taking a gig with her grandfather – the Don of the Italian mafia – Lacey Luzzi has been in for a wild ride. Stolen property, rogue weddings and uncomfortable Family dinners – she’s seen it all. However this time, when Carlos interrupts Lacey’s sugar-induced nap with a phone call, he gives her an assignment that sends her skidding into a place she least expects: the local spa.
Despite rumors of a prostitution ring that Lacey is tasked with investigating, the most intimidating portion of the job is not the spa’s head guard, a man armed to the teeth and called The Refrigerator. It’s not the insanely advanced weaponry commissioned by her cousin Clay, a computer-whiz and social disaster who hasn’t quite mastered the art of explosions. It’s not even the suspicious Mister Kim, Lacey’s new landlord, who is linked all too closely with the spa.
No, what has Lacey’s undies in a bunch is seeing her grandfather in yoga pants and working side by side with Anthony – a stud-muffin who is increasingly forward with his intentions.
