When New York’s hottest night club disc jockey, Darrell, and his lover Sherise come home having sex and undressing each other in Darrell's apartment, Darrell's daughter Lexi manages to trick Sherise into thinking that there was a Pamela in his life. Darrell says he doesn't know any Pamela but Sherise leaves anyway and Lexi says she was only teasing him to drive Sherise away.
Darrell is asked to be a DJ for a party for mob boss Frank. Darrell agrees, and during the party, Darrell sees people in a car ready to fire their guns. Darrell saves Frank's life and is rewarded for his bravery with the responsibility of watching over Frank's beautiful daughter, Dolly. Dolly starts introducing Darrell to yoga classes, takes him to a spa and last of all a restaurant to meet with some friends. Dolly is engaged to marry Chad but she doesn't feel any love or sympathy . Sparks fly between Dolly and Darrell as he takes her to the club he works, however, the night is spoiled by one of Frank's men who interrupts the happy couple, insults Darrell and pulls a pistol on him, threatening to use it. Someone yells "he's got a gun!" and in the ensuing confusion, Darrell and Dolly leave and go to a rusty place and play cards with some of Darrell's friends. Dolly and Darrell go to his apartment and reveal their true feelings for each other and they make love.
Frank's men discover Dolly and Darrell falling in love and tells Frank about it. When Darrell and Dolly are in the spa, Don's men throw Darrell in the warm pool and threaten to kill him if he continues his business with Dolly.
Dolly's father confronts Dolly and tells Dolly she is still going to marry Chad. When Sherise plans to seduce Darrell, Dolly says she is going to marry Chad and leaves but Darrell tries to stop her but Sherise tells him to let her go. Frank's men have a plan and kidnap Dolly and Darrell. Frank realizes his men betrayed him and plan to kill all of them but Dolly's brother Junior saves the day. Darrell and Dolly get married and enjoy the day.
