After Hijiri and her friends defeat Zara and her imposing love charms, Hiriji turns down Love's offer to be Grimbaud's new love charm maker, but Love isn't giving up on her yet. Love sends Hijiri a gift-wrapped boy that is supposed to be perfect for her, but she has no interest in a boy made out of charms. She is more interested in winning the city's love charm contest to prevent more nefarious charm makers from causing problems in the city. As Hiriji works to protect her friends and city from negative consequences of love spells, she learns to make room in heart to love someone else.
