Home renovation has never been so complicated…or so romantic. And since when does it involve a fake fiancé?
Callie Wright has it all. The perfect guy, the perfect new job, the perfect house. Until her groom-to-be deserts her. Now she’s still got the house, but the perfect fiancé? Well, he’s gone and left her right before they’re supposed to star in One Step at a Time, the hit home renovation reality show. The show that surprises newlyweds with their dream home has chosen Callie’s house as their new fixer-upper, and when they find out that Callie’s fiancé just stood her up? Well, apparently her heartbreak makes for good TV.
Faced with that sort of national humiliation, is it any wonder when Callie takes the show’s hottie star up on his offer to take over the role of fiancé? She’s not quite sure what’s in it for him, but what does it matter? He’s only a placeholder until her ex comes to his senses…right? So then, why does playing make believe feel so real? And why does he keep kissing her even when the cameras are off?
