: Alida Johnson is struggling to keep her eight-year relationship to successful lawyer, Darren Jones, together. The last few years of their relationship has been nothing but stressful, due to him making partner. It seems that all he cares about is work and making others feel less superior to him; including her. She's lacking the things that a woman craves in a relationship; the ability to connect mentally and physically. She wants her relationship to work, but the lack of stimulation and cryptic messages she's been receiving may just push her into the arms of another. Merit Anderson is one the youngest, most successful criminal defense attorneys in the country. He has it all; money, power, and respect. The only thing he's missing, and isn't looking for, is love. That is, until he meets a beautiful woman at a fundraiser that just so happens to be his old college rival's girlfriend, Alida Johnson. Determined to get under the skin of his former rival, he manages to get a date with her. The attempt to play with the emotions of his rival may violently back fire when he begins to develop strong feelings for her. Will Merit find the missing piece to his life, or will his immature antics cause someone their life?
