He has been desperately trying to get her out of the life that she has been living as a high class call girl, but it has been difficult to convince her that she is better than all this. He wants her to have a new career that she can really be proud of and get away from the man that has been spooking her.

Summer thinks that Luke is overstepping now. He knows what she is feeling. He still wants to give a job to her. He would like to make her his executive hostess…the divine, holy hostess. She rejects his proposal. He can’t see why she would give up an opportunity like this but the reason for that is him. She has been many things in her life but she finds Luke to be just like the men that she has been dealing with. He is looking for a fantasy, she finds. He denies that.
