Allie Zenet has nabbed a sparkly diamond ring and the handsome studio exec fiance that goes with it. Unfortunately that package also includes a domineering future mother-in-law and serious wedding jitters.
The thirty-two-year-old Los Angeles entertainment accountant would rather elope, but fiance Brad seems incapable of saying "no" to mommy's wedding demands. Allie wonders if anyone knows--or cares--that she is the one who's getting married.
Her closest friends are too engrossed in their own messy love lives to offer any guidance, and Allie's mother's views on marriage would make a strident feminist blush. The only one who seems interested in what Allie thinks is a good- looking acquaintance by the name of Jax Montgomery. But Jax's attentions have Allie questioning just what it is she truly wants.
Beth Orsoff's hilarious and heartfelt romp Disengaged is all about getting to "I do" by saying "I won't."
