Kara Shafer decides to give up on her college crush, Will Collier, and begin dating guys who are actually interested in her. Considering herself very average, Kara is surprised when handsome wannabe rocker, Jeff Ryder, picks her out of a crowd to be his muse.
When Jeff’s luck changes after meeting her, he asks her to elope. Throwing aside her usual good sense, she runs away with him and the band on a road trip toward fame and fortune, much of it based on the lyrics she writes.
As Kara experiences the tumultuous ups and downs of her marriage, she often wonders if she might have been happier if she’d connected with Will. Has his life turned out as he planned? Does he think about the girl who wanted him so badly in college? Will she ever see him again?
