Avery Booker is beautiful, successful, and ready to pledge forever to Lloyd, starting with the elaborate wedding ceremony she’s wanted for so long. Avery’s happy; Lloyd’s happy, but the pregnant woman who objects is not.
It seems Lloyd has some explaining to do, but explanations will have to wait. The baby is coming on the rose petals that were meant for Avery. The contractions are too close together to wait for an ambulance, so Avery springs into action. After all, she is an OB/GYN, and she’s about to deliver her fiancé’s baby on what was supposed to be their wedding day.
As Lloyd desperately tries to win her back and convince her to accept his child with another woman, Avery’s friend convinces her to embark on a new love journey—an exclusive but disastrous dating agency. Eventually, Avery comes across someone that leaves her intrigued, but the tug to reconcile with Lloyd grows too strong to ignore. Indecisiveness and the growing dependency on sleeping pills cause Avery to spiral out of control, but it’s her callous mother’s dirty secrets that ultimately send her over the edge.
Will Avery be able to pick up her shattered pieces and move on, or will stepmother place a stamp next to jilted?
