But will she get what she wants?
To celebrate the launch of their new law-firm business, Verity, James and Sami arrange a photoshoot. And it's Sami convinces Verity to allow Maxine to be part of the photo shoot.
As they each prepare for their close-ups, James is sceptical when Imran turns up to be their photographer.
Later, recognising that Verity’s feelings for Sami are more than professional, James urges her to make her move, before he moves on.
