Interracial entertainment industry it couple Sasha Williams and Drake Lancaster are still going strong. Her impeccable publicist skills have kept him on the A-list, helping Drake land the lead role in a major Valentine’s Day movie. The minute filming wraps, the couple plan on taking a much-needed getaway to Cabo San Lucas, inviting both of their families to join them and meet for the very first time.
But plans go astray when Drake begins shooting and reverts back to his bad boy ways. He gets into a huge altercation with the director and ends up being booted from the movie. Drake tries to smooth talk his way back in, to no avail. He’s quickly replaced by Mitch Morrison, a hot young African-American actor who’s recently taken Hollywood by storm.
News of Drake’s firing is all over the media, with everyone declaring he’s killed his career. Meanwhile, Mitch is being touted as the film’s great savior, and the positive press lands him on the doorstep of Sasha’s PR firm. She jumps at the chance to represent him, which infuriates Drake, who’s certain Mitch will demand all of her attention and land roles that rightfully belong to him. But Sasha, who’s disappointed in Drake’s on-set behavior and exhausted from the immense amount of damage control it caused, insists that he’s wrong and says this is a good business opportunity for her.
What Sasha doesn’t realize is that Drake feels threatened by Mitch’s good looks and charismatic personality. He’s also worried the pair will bond over the fact that they’re both African-American, working together in a tough business that can be quite discriminatory. It doesn’t help matters when Drake’s career stalls and he can’t even get an audition, while Sasha and Mitch continue to thrive professionally.
The stress of it all puts a strain on the couple’s relationship. To further complicate matters, Mitch admits to Sasha that he’s developed feelings for her. She’s shocked and confused after realizing she just may have feelings for him, too.
With the pressures of Sasha and Drake’s rocky union continuing to mount, along with the anticipation of their polar-opposite families meeting and Sasha’s elusive affections towards Mitch, the couple can’t help but wonder whether everything they’ve worked so hard to build is about to come crashing down. In the end, they must figure out whether their love for one another is strong enough to withstand these newfound challenges and carry them through this Valentine’s Day.
