Stenographer Connie Lee is very much in love with Tom Evans, the general manager of the firm for which she works, and begins to despair when she notices that she is losing his affections. Tom informs her that he is in love with Vivian March, and after Tom and Vivian are married, the dejected Connie falls into the clutches of her employer, Yates. The slick, older bachelor has pursued Connie for some time, and she finally agrees to move into his Park Avenue apartment. To prevent gossip, Connie is made Yates's contact girl, with the duties of entertaining out-of-town customers. Vivian, who is actually a flirt who lured Tom away from Connie, now begins to show her true nature to her husband. She displays her greed when, at a party at Connie's, Vivian asks Yates to give Tom a raise. Yates proposes that Vivian become his companion at weekend parties when Tom is away, and when she agrees, Yates gives Tom the raise. Connie learns of the affair and tries to stop it for Tom's sake. Tom becomes suspicious, however, when he notices the familiarity between Yates and Vivian at a party. In order to discover the truth, Tom pretends to leave for Chicago and returns to his apartment to find Vivian away. Tom then learns that Yates is away at Riverside Manor for the weekend and goes there with a revolver. Connie, who heard Tom talking to the company operator, suspects his intentions and, to spare his feelings, quickly drives to the manor to warn Vivian and Yates. Tom arrives and accuses Vivian, then opens the door to the adjoining suite to find Yates and Connie together. Tom is not fooled by Connie's pretense, however, and tells her that he will divorce Vivian. Tom and Connie then leave together for Reno, where he will obtain a divorce so that they can marry immediately.

According to Variety, the title of this film was derived from the song hit of several years earlier, "Lover, Come Back to Me." The song was first heard in the 1928 Broadway musical comedy The New Moon, which had a score by Sigmund Romberg, and a libretto by Oscar Hammerstein II, Frank Mandel and Laurence Schwab. The New Moon was filmed twice by M-G-M, in 1931, starring Lawrence Tibbett and Grace Moore, and in 1940 starring Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy.
