Swapping her honeymoon trip for a singles cruise should've been the one upside to her canceled wedding, but disembarking to discover that a snowstorm has crippled the East Coast flings corporate lawyer Stella Schuster right back into the high-octane anxiety mode she'd been trying to escape. She was supposed to return from the Caribbean refreshed, relaxed, and ready to become the kind of carefree, spontaneous woman her ex-fiancé left her for. But stuck in Miami with urgent deadlines, no way to get home to Atlanta, and the tension headache from hell, Stella's facing a long night glued to her laptop in the airport lounge—until a sexy stranger slides into the empty seat at her table.
Defensive midfielder Aaron Jackson may be one of the lesser lights in Atlanta Skyline's high-profile line-up—he definitely doesn't get paid like a star—but he gets to do what he loves, and that's all he cares about. As in, that's genuinely all he cares about. Aaron lives for the moment, thrives on uncertainty and adventure, fully embraces his commitment phobia and steers well clear of stress-heads too focused on planning every minute to enjoy the one they're in—stress-heads exactly like the stunning woman scowling at her laptop screen.
Just as Stella decides that an airport quickie might be the perfect way to usher in her new self, their flight goes from delayed to canceled, stranding them in Miami along with hundreds of other passengers. The only way back to Atlanta is on a road trip that will force Stella to focus on today, tempt Aaron to consider tomorrow, and maybe even lead to the shared future neither of them ever imagined they wanted—if they're brave enough to follow the winding road of fate.
