Liv is throwing a surprise birthday party for her new too-perfect-to-be-true fiancé, Christoph. The party must be flawless so their friends can see how happy she is; or so that’s what she tells herself as the guilt from sleeping with her best friend Nate on the night of her engagement grows stronger. Commitment-phobe Nate should probably just add the one night tryst with best friend Liv to his long list of conquests. That’s his normal M.O; But, as the big party nears, Nate questions his “no-strings” mantra and comes clean with Liv, making an all-out effort for her affections.
