Kate Moseman is a writer, photographer, and recipe developer who lives in Florida with her family and enjoys going to theme parks as frequently as possible.
After the amusement park Vanessa works for goes belly-up, she moves to Florida for a dream job as a manager at Destiny Park, the most elaborate theme park in the world.
In this glittering playground where nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted, she meets Thomas—a charismatic union organizer who has just 30 days to convince his fellow employees to unionize.
When upper management decides to bust the union at any cost, Vanessa and Thomas must appear to be on opposite sides even as their magnetic attraction brings them closer and closer.
