Elle Sahlstrom hates weddings, but she promised her best friend Tory that she will attend her destination ceremony, despite having to endure obnoxious cousins, bad wine, and a phallus-laden bachelorette party. But the worst part is the man sitting next to her on the plane, on his way to the same wedding, guaranteed to be the same insufferable jerk he was years ago.
Jackson Proveaux knows Elle hates him with a passion, but it's that same passion that has him convinced she's perfect for him...
Unfortunately, he made mistakes in the past, involving cocktails, out of control minivans, and a giant misunderstanding that cost him his one and only shot with Elle. The French expatriate sees the wedding as a chance to atone for his sins. He offers to spend a week completely at Elle's mercy, and if she still hates him at the end, he'll leave her alone forever.
A fiery temper, two sets of handcuffs, and copious amounts of tequila are guaranteed to make this situation complicated...
Unable to resist a win-win deal-or Jackson-Elle agrees. Their arrangement quickly becomes more complicated than either of them could have anticipated. The grumpy environmentalist never thought the smooth talking playboy would be able to make her laugh, and he didn't count on the hot-headed beauty dominating him in the bedroom...or that he would actually like it.
As the lovers become more entwined in each other's lives and hearts, one question remains-will their truce survive the wedding, or are they living on borrowed time?
