Just Watch the Fireworks
For Courtney McKellen, the idea of marriage is just short of terrifying. Unfortunately, Courtney just said yes when her boyfriend asked her to marry him. Call it a moment of panic, insanity, or blind fear, but she now finds herself engaged, and couldn’t be less excited. With pressure from friends, family and her new fiancé to embrace her inner bride, she starts to wonder if she made the wrong decision. Just when things can’t get any more confusing, Courtney comes face-to-face with the guy who broke her heart three years earlier. She hasn’t spoken to him since, and he couldn’t have more contempt for her. They are now living in the same city, though, so they’re bound to run into each other again and again. When he suggests being friends, she is beyond skeptical but agrees to give it a try. Then old feelings start to surface, and Courtney finds herself wondering if it’s possible to just be friends with her ex when he’s cuter than she remembered, ridiculously charming and might still be in love with her. When she realizes she’s not over him either, she knows she’s in trouble. But can she trust him enough to give him her heart when he broke it once before?
