Simon comes home with important news, only to learn that Carey has some too: she is expecting a baby, something they’ve been wanting for some time.Simon decides not to share his information, too overcome by the surprise pregnancy. Then Carey meets Owen, and there is an undeniable attraction. Feeling guilty, but intrigued, she gives Owen her number – and in an instant, Carey’s life changes.As Carey and Owen get to know each other and their connection deepens, Carey is tormented by the emotional betrayal she feels she is committing. At the same time, a lie gnaws away at her marriage to Simon, and the two relationships begin to collide in the most unexpected of ways.
