Tessa is starting her first day as an intern for Vance Publishing at Vance’s workplace. However, things worsen following a tense encounter with Trevor Matthews, her new coworker.

Tessa and her coworkers decided to go out for drinks one evening to catch a potential investor’s interest. But once she drank too many cocktails, things turned heated. Tessa calls Hardin while she’s wasted and boasts about how great things have been going for her. Trevor finds her shortly after she calls him, and they return to their hotel room.

Though initially peaceful, their reunion is short-lived because Tessa must deal with the chaos of her professional life and determine her feelings for Hardin.
