Kate and Chuck are the picture-perfect couple. They grew up side by side at their parent’s chocolate factory. They were best friends turned lovers. They even went to university together. However, appearances aren’t what they seem. Four months ago, Kate broke up with Chuck. Since then, they have been pretending to still be a couple to keep from breaking their parents’ hearts. They both agree it’s time to come clean. But, life decides on something else for the couple-not-couple. How about they go from fake dating to fake engaged to fake having a baby?

But as time went on, and impressions had to be made, somewhere they lost themselves in being overly polite. Now Naomi feels stuck with a wedding she doesn’t want and it’s all paid for by her future monster-in-law, Deborah. Naomi figures she has to get Nicholas to break up with her so that she doesn’t get stuck with the bill, and she thinks she knows just how to do that. But Nicholas proves to be better at this game than she expected. Now their relationship is a “game of chicken.” Can their relationship be saved or are they already doomed?
