Kenna McEwen is sent into a panic when her mother calls to invite her home for the holidays. This past year hadn't been very good to her and the idea of meeting up with her sister, pregnant by the man that Kenna had planned to marry, makes her anxious.
Nicolas Grefield is Kenna's best friend, so she turns to him to make this trip easier to bear. She cons Nicky into pretending to be her boyfriend in front of her parents. Nicolas likes the idea and decides they should use it with his parents as well.
But Kenna has no idea how seriously Nicky wants to actually be her boyfriend, and how badly he wants to take her home as his actual fiancee. Now will Kenna go along with him so that they might have their own perfect trip "Home for the Holiday?"
