The Fathers Have Decided.

Rio and Gina Ricci will have legitimate careers—unlike the rest of the family. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll were not part of the plan, but definitely part of their destiny. After all, it’s the 70s. With the help of her cousin Rio, Gina secretly pursues her dream to be a singer—against her parents’ wishes.

Enter Trevor McNaughton, a beautiful, troubled musician. Gina brings Trevor back to her family’s gated estate, where her father tracks every move using security cameras placed throughout the grounds. Before their steamy night is over, cold, career driven Gina is in love … and insanely jealous.

Trevor falls under Gina’s spell and the couple brace themselves for the challenges of life and love on the road. But Trevor ignores Gina’s intuition about the risks to their blissful union and the success they are building together. Gina’s not sure she wants to know exactly how the family plans to help the couple and eliminate threats.
