Eigentlich hatte Megan Vandemeer ihre Eltern über die gelöste Verlobung informieren wollen, aber anderthalb Monate später sitzt sie in einem Flugzeug auf dem Weg nach Hause zu ihrer Hochzeit. Nachdem sie die hässliche Wahrheit lange genug ignoriert hat, ist es höchste Zeit, sich der Realität zu stellen - eine Horrorvorstellung, da ihre Mutter hundertprozentig sie für die geplatzte Hochzeit verantwortlich machen wird statt Megans fremdgehenden, gefühlskalten Ex. Ein paar Drinks und zwei Tabletten gegen Reisekrankheit später erzählt Megan dem großen, gutaussehenden Mann neben sich ihre traurige Lebensgeschichte.Josh McMillan bleibt nur noch eine Woche Zeit, um sein Unternehmen zu retten, als er in einem letzten verzweifelten Versuch nach Kansas City fliegt - was genau er dort vorhat, weiß er selbst noch nicht so recht. Die unerwartete Antwort findet sich in der wunderschönen Brünetten neben ihm. Obwohl sie offensichtlich völlig verrückt ist, gefallen ihm ihre Ehrlichkeit, ihre Offenheit und ihr Humor. Als ihr kurz vor der Landung schlecht wird, hilft er ihr beim Aussteigen aus dem Flugzeug - eine gute Tat, die zu einem kolossalen Missverständnis führt: Ihre Eltern halten ihn für den Verlobten. Durch eine unerwartete Fügung des Schicksals kann diese Verwechslung für Josh möglicherweise die Rettung seines Unternehmens bedeuten, also spielt er mit, um auch Megan zu helfen. Alles, was er tun muss, ist eine öffentliche Szene zu inszenieren, die überzeugend genug ist, um Megans Mutter von seiner Schuld am Ende der Verlobung zu überzeugen.Josh ist also nur der Ersatzbräutigam, aber je mehr Zeit er mit Megan verbringt, desto realer kommt beiden ihre Verlobung vor ... und desto weniger wollen sie miteinander Schluss machen. Kann eine Beziehung, die als eine Farce begann, tatsächlich zu einem Happy End führen?

Megan Vandemeer meant to tell her parents about her broken engagement, but a month and a half later she finds herself boarding a plane home to her wedding. Having stretched avoidance to its limits, it's time to come clean--a terrifying prospect since her mother is sure to blame her rather than her cheating, emotionally frigid ex. A couple of drinks and two Dramamine later, Megan finds herself spilling her sob story to the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the seat next to her. With only one week left to save his business, Josh McMillan boards a plane to Kansas City in a last-ditch effort, leaving the details to chance.
