Emory needs a win, a promotion...and a date to her ex-fiancée's Hollywood wedding.
Emory Jordan has been rising through the ranks of the boys' club at a venture capital firm in New York, where she's competing for her dream promotion. When Emory's estranged ex-girlfriend Mari-who broke off their engagement to pursue her acting ambitions-sends a wedding invitation, it's the perfect opportunity for her to pitch a deal to Mari's new tech mogul fiancé. More importantly, it's a chance for Emory to prove to Mari that she has moved on from their breakup. The wrench in her plans: she's been putting work at the top of her to-do list, and there's nobody she can ask to be her plus-one.
But Emory has a knack for business strategy. When Bliss Tully, a struggling florist with a good-vibes-only attitude, accidentally stabs her with a cactus, Emory sees an opportunity. Bliss is short on trust-her father's white-collar crimes left her with a deep aversion to the business world-but she's also short on cash, so she agrees to pose as Emory's fiancée. The job is only for a month and it should be easy money. Right? As Mari's wedding approaches, Emory and Bliss grow closer, aware their engagement is nothing more than a thirty-day sham. When it comes to kissing the bogus bride, though, both of them want to say I do.
You are cordially invited to the fakeout in this slow-burn contemporary romance about letting go of the past-and loving your future.
