On a career break in London, tomboy Cara McCarthy is thrilled to land a job as a ‘domestic assistant’ to Sophia Brannigan, the glamorous live-in girlfriend of hunky Premiership English footballer, Dylan Summers.
Sophia is a fame hungry, self obsessed, wannabe ‘celebrity’ who will stop at nothing to grace the pages of glossy Fab! magazine and her relationship with Dylan is on shaky ground since he strictly shuns the public attention she craves so much.
Soon, Cara finds herself lost in a fairytale world within the walls of the luxurious Summer Manor, where she samples from behind the scenes the life of a wealthy WAG whose weekly clothing allowance would pay for a month’s rent on her real life east end apartment.
When her job description extends to shadowing Sophia’s celebrity lifestyle, Cara balances the best of both worlds, experiencing the perks, the parties, the glitz, the glamour…and falling in love with the wrong man all over again.
Playing the Field is a laugh a minute romantic comedy which mixes the style of Ugly Betty with Footballers Wives and pokes fun at today’s obsession with all things ‘celebrity.’
