Every beautiful woman has a friend like Michael-- a trusted
and dependable soul, content to know he's "like a brother"
to a woman he secretly longs to bed.
The woman in this case Michael's neighbor and tenant-- a girlishly
sexy princess by the name of Lori. Lori feels coveted and yet chaste
in the glow of Michael's calm, silent gaze -- an addictive combination
she can scarcely live without. Physically, however, she prefers the
touch of another man.
Justin is a handsome, half-Asian stock broker whose passion for life
is trampled by the dizzying demands of his fast-track career. After
work, Justin crashes at Lori's apartment hoping to steal a few extra
moments of peace. But Lori's enticing bids to claim those moments for
herself spur in Justin a flood of sexual intensity often bordering on
cruelty. Afterwards, Justin pretends to sleep, sending lovesick Lori
upstairs to Michael for late night movies cuddled up on his couch.
Into the fray wanders Darcy-- a novelist and world traveler who singles
Michael out at the local nightspot. Michael senses the danger in Darcy's
eyes, but he invites her into his life, and soon into the lives of Lori
and Justin. Slowly, the seduction begins. By the time Darcy sets off
into the world again, her insinuating power has sparked a chain reaction
of passion and betrayal, where all the truths and all the lies, so carefully
kept hidden, are ultimately revealed.
