Countdown to Season 2: Spotlight on Riley

By Tracy_Goldenberg 02/24/2013 10:00AM GMT

Riley Parks' describes herself as a "small town girl who LOVES karaoke, a good margarita and my two kids Katie and Travis." But as we learned in the first season of "The Client List," Riley (Jennifer Love Hewitt) tends to have problems that even a stiff drink can't fix. In the premiere episode, Riley's husband, Kyle, deserts his family, leaving Riley to be the sole provider. After taking a job at a seemingly traditional day spa, The Rub of Sugar Land, Riley quickly learns the way to make the big bucks is the offer sexual favors to her clients on the side. Conflicted, Riley seizes the opportunity, takes the job and starts her double life as a conservative Texas single mom and masseuse.

With a support group consisting of her mother Linette, brother-in-law Evan, boss Georgia and best friend Lacey, Riley often found it hard to keep her life at the spa a secret—clients' wives would accuse her of being the "other woman," Riley would run into clients at social events around town and her family became increasingly curious as to why she'd have to drop everything suddenly to go to The Rub.

As tensions grew between Riley in her loved ones, so did her romantic feelings for Evan. At the end of the season, the pair shared a passonate kiss...only to have ex-husband Kyle return to his family, leaving Riley more conflicted than ever. In Season 2, Riley must walk the fine line between her anger and love for Kyle and the feelings she has for Evan.
