Enter Oliver Blackwood, a gorgeous and strait-laced man who is the exact opposite of a press magnet. 

It seems ideal for he and Luc to fake date, just long enough to clear up Luc's not-so-good name. But when their fake relationship starts to feel like real romance, Luc and Oliver might have to consider whether they're willing to pursue this love, even as the world watches on.

Jonathan thinks he's got amnesia, and since he's afraid he's about to be unemployed, Sam keeps up the ruse. 

It seemed like a good idea at the time but maintaining the lie is easier said than done, especially as Jonathan reveals his softer side and an unexpected connection forms between the pair. Love, however, can't be built on a lie. How long can Sam pretend before the truth comes out?

They should clash, but Ash is drawn to Darian. He makes him laugh and reminds him that life isn't all misery and anxiety. Depression, however, is not so easy to cast off. Fighting for his happiness will take more from Ash than a big smile and lots of glitter.
