Now that the math is out of the way, a review: This is your typical DP heroine who has imprinted on the emotionally stunted hero at a young age. It was actually his father who drove the young woman to suicide after blackmailing her to leave the hero alone.
He did it by threatening to turn in her younger brother for gang-related activities. Hero only finds this out after his father dies. So he had double guilt and anger at his father. His sister and her children did, though. Hero lies and says he was in the stadium. Then he gives her a gift his secretary bought — a Mickey Mouse watch. Hero is angry his lies and petty behavior are exposed so he lashes out at the heroine and begins flaunting his blonde bimbo in her face.
And they date a lot. There are as many scenes with the OM as there are with the hero. Shenanigans ensue as the sister has a heart attack. Hero is angry at being interrupted and calls her ugly and a bunch of other names.
Heroine leaves with tears blinding her, wrecks her car and is injured. Lucky for the hero, heroine has amnesia, so she willingly stays with the guilty hero to recover. A tornado finally knocks some sense into the hero. Hero, meanwhile, dumps the bimbo whom he never had sex with , buys a diamond and proposes to the heroine on her college campus for a dubious HEA.
Cutesy detail DP is so cringey. He followed her amused gaze and burst out laughing.
