* DoubleStandard: Gage's continued pursuit of Diana following their night together (something that was ''contractually agreed on'' to be one night and no more)--showing up at her job uninvited and unannounced, manipulating situations to bring them together--is presented as adorable and playful, despite the fact that she's clearly not interested and finds his behavior upsetting. When she gets fed up and shows up at ''his'' workplace uninvited and unannounced to tell him off and demand that he leave her alone, ''her'' behavior is presented as alarming and disruptive even though she has every right to be angry with him. So a woman acting like a crazy stalker is. . .a crazy stalker. A man acting like a crazy stalker is in love.

* QuestionableConsent: Diana and David only even consider the offer from Gage because they're broke. By the time she goes to Gage's yacht, it's only after a contract has been hammered out. Gage ups the ante by flipping a coin and telling her that if she wins, he'll void the deal. He wins and . . .cue SexyDiscretionShot. At the end, it's revealed that Gage's coin is double-sided. So aside from the fact that she would never have even considered sleeping with him in the first place were it not for the money, both the contract and the coin toss leave her feeling obligated to do this.
