Things change when a well-intentioned friend announces their engagement. Both have their reasons for pretending to be engaged, but it does give Zack an excuse to continue pursuing her. They have to spend time together and they find encouragement, understanding, and a good listener in each other. With each day, their fake relationship begins to feel a little more real.
He smiled and came back over to kiss her. Then he straightened, his expression flickering with something before he asked, “Can you take a few days off work? I know it’s short notice but I have a conference in Paris Monday to Friday next week. We could fly over for the weekend so we have a couple of days together before the conference starts.”
