Matthew Taylor (Shemar Moore), a father, author, and relationship expert is on a book tour promoting his new best-selling book, The Bounce Back. He has everything figured out until he meets the acerbic Kristin Peralta (Nadine Velazquez), a talk show circuit therapist who is convinced that he is nothing but a charlatan. Matthew's life is turned upside down when he inadvertently falls for Kristin and has to face the painful truth of his past relationship.
