In an effort to woo Kate, Justin introduces her to a Brazilian singer and activist who may wind up costing him his election.
When Justin scores tickets and backstage passes to a concert by Claudia Alves, one of Kate's favorite musicians, he wins major ex-husband points. But when Kate convinces him to join the band for an afterparty and the police find drugs in Claudia's purse, his thoughtful gesture lands him in the middle of a scandal that could destroy his campaign. While Justin and Lauren go into damage control mode trying to preserve Justin's reputation, Kate tries to figure out how to get the case to disappear. Claudia claims she's being set up by a corrupt Brazilian police boss determined to put an end to her activism, and with help from Ben, Kate sets out to clear Claudia's-and Justin's-name. But it won't be easy, since the San Francisco D.A. (Justin's boss and opponent) has pounced on the case as a way to smear Justin's squeaky-clean reputation. Meanwhile, after a heated negotiation with billionaire Robin Archer, Lauren finds herself falling for him. But though their chemistry is undeniable, her mistrust and fear of getting hurt may be holding her back from pursuing the relationship-something Kate knows a little something about too...
