He dumped her?!
Future plans now murky,
her family wants to fix it… look out!
Jasmine had everything arranged, counting down to graduation, moving into an apartment with her longtime boyfriend Paul, starting nursing school (it’s a secure career… sigh).
Her family and enormous network of cousins and aunts know that Paul is cheating on her before the Korean adoptee does (not savvy about social media at all).
To help Jasmine get over Paul, her Filipino-white family decides to bring the best young bachelors in central Florida to her graduation party (big sister Cari’s podcast about The Bachelor is really popular).
All a secret from Jasmine, including the bets that Davey takes on which guy she’ll bring to the family Fourth of July party! (her adopted Dominican younger brother will surely grow up to be a bookie…)
Maybe it will be Justin, her junior high pal back from four years in Texas (so cute, so grown up).
Or Eugene, son of famous restaurant chefs (Jasmine dreams of cooking, not nursing).
Perhaps Aaron, the minor league pitcher from Nashville (that accent, those manners).
Everyone involved knows the rules, except Jasmine of course, but when some bachelors go rogue and Paul contacts her mid-summer (he never did treat her right), who knows what will happen by July!
Funniest inter-generational group texts ever punctuate this story of Jasmine discovering who she really is and what she wants for her own future.
