Von is the definition of fun, until his proposal sends her into a panic. Marriage is too serious a commitment to make after dating for only six months.

Soon Marley realizes she may have been the problem with their relationship, not just Von’s proposal. She wants a second chance, but after breaking his heart once, will he give her a do-over?
