But, as it turns out, Yooi and Lida have the exact same face. Their haircuts and their personalities are what tell them apart.
They run into each other and realize the similarities. Later, Lida decides to use Yooi as her body double. Yooi dons a wig and gets paid to pretend she's Lida. Since Yooi needs the money, she jumps at this job opportunity.
There are a few reasons, though, why Yooi might not want to be Lida. For one, someone is trying to kill the rich girl. And it isn't long before an assassination attempt is made on Yooi due to mistaken identity. Her very life is in danger because of this job.
There's also the issue of Lida's fiancé. It's an engagement of money and convenience, and while Lida is infatuated with her fiancé, Gaon, he can't stand her. He even goes to tell her off, only to tell off a bewildered Yooi instead. Yooi won't put up with this attitude from him, which gets him to rethink things. As he hangs out with Yooi (believing she's Lida), he becomes impressed with her personality. He didn't realize his bride-to-be was so brave and caring. So he starts falling in love with Yooi, thinking she's Lida, and Yooi starts falling in love with Gaon, scared to admit she isn't Lida. It's all a tangled mess. And there's still the issue that someone out there is trying to assassinate Lida and may very well pick off Yooi instead.
Can't Lose You has a main premise similar to some other stories (like the aforementioned Prince and the Pauper), but makes itself an interesting and fun read. While readers might think, "Gee, this sounds familiar" when starting the series, they'll soon get caught up in the storyline. The story likes to concentrate on the forbidden feelings between Yooi and Gaon, but the fear of assassination is really where the intensity lies.

Lida makes a deal with Yooi. She pays her to take her place at events and various other public appearances. Yooi can certainly use the money as it is far more than she could ever make on her jobs and posing as a high society heiress can't be all bad. But what Lida doesn't tell her is that her family has been getting blackmailed with threats made against Lida's life. Now Lida is safely protected while poor Yooi is on the firing line. Furthermore, Gaon Gil, a handsome young man is arranged to marry Lida but doesn't much care for her. Yet when the pair attends an event at an orphanage, Gil falls for Lida...who isn't Lida...but Yooi instead. When Yooi insists that she be allowed to dine with the children, the banquet is moved. Soon a bomb goes off trapping Yooi, Gil, and the children in the basement. Who is responsible and why? And how will Yooi react once she knows someone is trying to kill Lida?
Wann's story was very well done. Part comedy, mystery, romance, and drama, it works on all of those levels. Lida is a typical high society snob who suddenly likes Gil as soon as she finds out he's attracted to Yooi. Unfortunately it's not her looks but her charming and innocent personality that attracts Gil, something Lida just doesn't have. Fun book!
