Leah Patterson has been a close friend of the Morgan family for a long time now. So it’s no surprise when she offers some emotional support to Justin Morgan in the fallout from his brother Brody’s affair with Simone Bedford.
Justin is feeling horribly guilty that he knew about Brody and Simone’s affair but didn’t say anything to Brody’s wife Ziggy until it was too late. However, Leah believes his family are adult enough to deal with their problems without involving him.
As Leah opens up about letting her grown son VJ go – he now lives in Cyprus – Justin also realises it’s time for him to stop being such a father figure to his siblings.
Leah and Justin’s heart-to-heart unexpectedly brings them closer. And, later that day, the pair unexpectedly find themselves kissing… and then a whole LOT more!
