Alexa Monroe is in San Francisco to celebrate her sister’s promotion when she gets stuck in an elevator for an extended period of time with an attractive stranger. Naturally, they strike up a conversation and Alexa learns that the hot guy, Drew Nichols, is a paediatric surgeon, in town to go to the wedding of his ex-girlfriend and one of his best friends. Obviously, he’s not exactly thrilled, and the woman supposed to be his plus one cancelled on him. While they eat some of Alexa’s purse snacks (she has cheese and crackers in there to bring to her sister’s room), Alexa is persuaded to be Drew’s fake girlfriend for the weekend.
While they barely know one another, it’s clear that Alexa and Drew have chemistry in spades. After the wedding, they hook up, but rather than go their separate ways the morning after, they spend the day together and agree to keep seeing one another. Alexa works in Berkeley, as the Mayor’s chief of staff, while Drew works at a hospital in Los Angeles. So they can only really see one another on weekends, when either one can afford to fly to see the other. Alexa really likes Drew, but he made it very clear at their very first meeting that he doesn’t really do long term relationships (he tends to bail when things start getting really serious, but always stays friends with his exes). How long can she keep flying to LA for a guy who will eventually present her with the “Let’s just be friends” talk?
