He can't have her. And he can't tell anyone why.
Ski racer Dane "Danger" Hollister does not do relationships, though he keeps his reason a secret. The real-life curse he's inherited from his mother will eventually cost him everything: his place on the Olympic ski team, his endorsement income, and his ability to fly downhill at top speed.
Reluctant country girl Willow Reade meets Dane by accident. Literally. Her skidding truck forces him off the road during a blizzard. Stranded together in his Jeep as night falls, the two loneliest people in Vermont find themselves sharing more than they'd planned. And not just conversation.
Yet neither can guess how their unlikely tryst will threaten Dane's frightening secret and Willow's tentative peace with her own choices. Only mutual trust and understanding can end their pain and give them a hard won shot at love.
"Bowen writes great dialogue and wonderfully realistic characters." --Sarah Wendell (Smart Bitches Trashy Books) for Kirkus
"A powerful, redemptive love story that churned my insides, but also left me absolutely satisfied." --The Bookish Babe
"A deeply romantic story that warms with slow-burn eroticism and genuine insight into loss and love. Sarina Bowen's debut glows with intelligence and a lovely sweetness." --Mary Ann Rivers, author of LIVE
The book started out really nice. I liked the wintery setting as well has the situation Dane and Willow end up in.
The two had a great chemistry and I liked both but Dane had some real asshole moments which made him lose points with me. Willow was the all sweet girl but with a mind of her own. The love story came kind of quick and even forced though.
There were also some really dark and depressing moments in the book. I enjoyed it even though but I wasn't overall emotionally...
