Callie never expects to see Egan Pasko, her ex-best friend again. But when she answers the door, there he is! Egan has a plan, the twenty-one date experiment. Egan is hoping to beat out his brother in social media likes. He claims it’s a test to see if two old friends can fall in love, all recorded and online. Callie does think it might help her gain the followers she needs for a baking mentorship that she hopes will fuel her career.

Their only problem is they are not falling in love and neither are their viewers loving them! Once in freshman year Egan locked Callie in her locker. She’s finally forgiven him but now he exposes her deepest feelings online without her permission. Can she, will she forgive him again? Where is their relationship going?
