Tessa needs a social life. And a vacation. And a little romance wouldn’t hurt either. But when her childhood BFF Beth proposes a group Galentine’s Day trip to Las Vegas, Tessa has some reservations: the others are mean girls who made her feel like a loser in middle school.
Nonetheless, Tessa caves to pressure from Beth and agrees to join the reunion. Things go sideways from the start when Beth is a no-show at the airport, leaving Tessa on her own with her old frenemies, and the hotel where they are meant to stay is filthy and crumbling.
In order to salvage the weekend getaway, Tessa finds nicer accommodations. Little does she know that this small change in plans will put her on the path of fate. The boy who broke her heart in college is here at this new hotel, giving her the chance to find out if they were truly meant to be. The Galentine’s Day trip might just turn into a Valentine’s Day romance after all.
Mia has never been lucky in love. Growing up, she always wanted for herself the same sort of relationship her grandparents shared—love at first sight and a lifelong partnership.

When her equally love-deprived friend Logan proposes a challenge to see which of them can be the first to land a Valentine's Day date, Mia's competitive spirit kicks in. Each of them embarks on a series of hilariously bad dates in their quest for love, but who will win the challenge? And can a friendly wager result a real romance?

Eva is a near-perfect copy of his ex-fiancé, Gwen. Will Kai discover Eva is the woman he loves, or will he always wish she were Gwen?
