The duo meet Melissa at one of their shows, an older journalist who becomes fascinated with pair. Bobbi and Frances start to spend time with Melissa and her husband, Nick, a handsome but reserved actor. 

While Melissa and Bobbi flirt with each other openly, Nick and Frances embark on an intense secret affair that is surprising to them both. 

Soon their sexually charged relationships begins to test the bonds between Frances and Bobbi, as Bobbi finds herself defending Melissa and distancing herself from Frances, forcing Frances to reconsider her sense of self, and the friendship she holds so dear. The resulting love triangles upend their lives over the course of a semester packed with dinner parties, beach houses, torrid affairs, marriage, love, friendship, jealousy, and everything in between.
