Never in her wildest dreams does Liz expect her boss to ask for sexual favors in return for a promotion. She hasn’t told anyone at work that she and Tom are no longer together. Anyway, Mr. Harrell doesn’t seem to care about the engagement ring on Liz’s finger any more than he cares about the wedding band on his own.
Instead of running straightway to the HR office, Liz decides to keep mum. Trying to deal with increasing anxiety she reaches out to her best friend, Brittany. Thinking that Liz is merely upset over Tom ending their relationship, Britt directs her buddy, “Start focusing on your career. Stop thinking about that dirt bag ex of yours. Why, he didn’t even have enough guts to tell you goodbye in person.”
Liz still doesn’t mention the incident with Mr. Harrell, although she’s beginning to wonder if all men are the same – shallow, sex craved and unfaithful.
Suddenly there’s someone new trying to get Liz’s attention. He handsome, he’s successful and he’s only in town for the weekend. Liz quickly learns that Peyton Spence is different. He’s open, he’s honest, he’s adorable – and instead of wanting to use her, he wants a relationship with God at the center.
