When, in the midst of an argument, she issues a particularly deep-stinging barb, he begins to wonder if Blair might actually be happier without him.<br /><br /> It all comes to a head on Valentine’s Day when Blair and Garrett must confront their fear that love may not be enough.

Description :  Megan Vandemeer comptait vraiment parler à ses parents de sa rupture avec son fiancé, mais voilà qu'un mois et demi plus tard, elle se retrouve dans l'avion pour assister à son propre mariage. Après avoir repoussé le moment le plus longtemps possible, il est l'heure pour elle d'avouer la vérité : une perspective terrifiante, puisqu'elle sait déjà que c'est à elle que sa mère en voudra, au lieu de blâmer son ex insensible et infidèle. Après quelques verres et deux cachets contre le mal des transports, Megan se retrouve en train de déballer toute son histoire au bel étranger assis à côté d'elle dans l'avion. <br /><br />Josh McMillan décide de s'en remettre au destin et monte dans un avion à destination de Kansas City pour une dernière tentative désespérée de sauver son entreprise. Une solution inattendue lui apparaît sous la forme d'une belle femme brune assise à côté de lui. Elle a beau sembler un peu timbrée, son honnêteté, sa franchise et son humour ne manquent pas de le charmer. Ainsi, lorsqu'elle s'évanouit juste avant l'atterrissage, Josh l'aide à descendre : une action qui mène à un malentendu d'ampleur colossale, puisque les parents de Megan le prennent pour son fiancé. Mais lorsque Josh réalise que cette histoire pourrait lui permettre de sauver son affaire, il décide de jouer le jeu et d'aider Megan en même temps. Tout ce qu'il a besoin de faire, c'est de mettre en scène une rupture assez crédible pour apaiser la mère de celle-ci.<br /> <br />Josh n'est donc qu'un fiancé de substitution, mais plus Megan et lui<br /><br />passent de temps ensemble, plus leur relation semble réelle... et moins<br /><br />ils ont envie d'y mettre fin. Une belle histoire d'amour peut-elle<br /><br />naître d'une imposture ?
