When her “perfect on paper” boyfriend whom she met through her own app proposes, she accepts. He seems like the perfect guy to Alana but she can’t help but feel that something is missing.

She returns back to her hometown along the Florida Gulf Coast to share the engagement news with her estranged father played by Shawn Christian. Back in Florida, she runs into her ex-boyfriend Kai, (Tom Maden) who is now a water sports equipment manufacturer.

When the two work side by side in order to help her father’s inn from closing, do romantic feelings spark back up or is this time to leave it in the past and move on with her perfect on paper boyfriend?

Emeraude and Tom recently sat down with KTLA to talk about their upcoming Hallmark movie. “Emeraude, meaning a stone the color of beauty and love,” the host starts out by saying.

“What does Tom mean?” asks Maden. “Thomas means twin..but I’m an only child,” he continues laughing.

They both aspire to retire to Florida in the movie. “St. Petersburg with sugar sand beaches,” explains Toubia. “Wrapping every day on the beach in the sunset was really amazing” she trails off.

Shawn Christian sat down with Home & Family hosts Debbie Matenopoulos and Cameron Mathison this past week to share that the movie is based on an experience he had of his own in Hawaii. We can’t help but see that Tom Maden could definitely be the soap star’s son. Do you agree?
