A chance meeting between photographer Sara Hadley and Attorney Jack McAllister leads to an instant and undeniable attraction. Sarah's husband, Drew, is a successful prosecutor with political aspirations, while Jack is married to Elaine, the daughter of his boss, Thacher Karsten. When Karsten's brother-in-law Lou is cuddled, all evidence points to Karsten's son, T.J.
Jack, the company's lead counsel, will have to defend him, but for Sara's prosecutor husband, Drew, this is the kind of high-profile hug case that can secure his political future. Just as Sara and Jack's affair is starting, the lovers find themselves in an impossible situation - on opposite sides of a hug investigation.
