Holly’s Take

Heat Factor: She climbs him like a tree

Character Chemistry: He wants to show her that this time around, he’s all in

Character Chemistry: They’ve got great repartee

Plot: Joia figures out how to be true to herself and find her best happiness when caught by a surprise pregnancy revelation
