    Once again Zoey Bancroft finds herself in a tight position. Her poker playing, gambling boyfriend, just left her after finding out she was pregnant, but not before cleaning out her entire bank account first. Alone in Vegas with no one to turn to, she calls her long time best friend Gage Powell. Hearing Zoey on the other end of the phone brings back all the years of love he feels towards her. When her phone call is broken off abruptly, Gage becomes concerns and finds a sitter for his niece, Pet, who he has custody over, and drives to Vegas. Finding Zoey in a safe house, he convinces her to marry him to give her baby a name and some dignity for when she tells her parents. Although Zoey sees this all a business arrangement and makes it quite clear they will file for divorce once her baby is born and she has some money, Gage is hoping to change her mind.But Zoey's past isn't ready to let her go. Receiving harassing calls from her ex, Derek, wanting money, Zoey feels she has not choice but to do as he says if she wants to keep her family safe. But money isn't making her problems go away and when their niece's safety is beginning to crumble, Zoey finally seeks help from Gage, only to find Gage has finally reached his limit and snaps at her. Not long after that, Derek and the loan-shark breathing down his neck take her and Pet hostages, demanding money. With Gage being in the garage they try to scream, but Gage believes they are only playing.

Now, Gage is certain something is up. Going to investigates he watches as Zoey goes after the gunman who has Pet by the hair, only to get shot herself. Gage and Viper struggle until the police and ambulance get there. Right before surgery, a drugged induced Zoey announces to Gage she wants a divorce. Despite her sister's reassurance that Zoey didn't mean it, Gage is distraught. He always believed if he just waited for Zoey to find herself if would lead her to him.Recovering in the hospital, Zoey's sister's tell her what she said. Not remembering saying that, Zoey worries it will be to late to finally admit her feelings. Arriving at his house to talk, Gage holds up an envelope. Believing it's divorce papers, she tears it up.
