From the USA Today bestselling author who is a "master of witty banter" (Entertainment Weekly) comes a hilarious road trip romance that proves opposites don't just attract, they ignite. Gia Gallo is officially in bridesmaid hell. Stranded in New York with her best friend's wedding dress, Gia has six days to make it to Florida in time for the ceremony. And oh-so-charming best man Bennett Buchanan has taken the last available rental car. Looks like she's in for one long road trip with the sexiest - and most irritating - Southern gentleman she's ever met...
