As a college football star and a waitress fight off cold and loneliness through one hot holiday break, a passion begins that may carry them all the way into the pros.
I'm not going home for Christmas because I'm escaping my past as a party girl and biker chick. I was planning on spending Christmas break alone until my secret crush walks into the deserted pub where I'm tending bar.
I'm not spending Christmas with family, and loneliness drives me to a bar near campus where I find tough-girl Aubrey mixing drinks and serving smarts comments. After one look, I know I won't be spending my Christmas alone. A mysterious and devastating text message along with a burnt hamburger lead to dinner out, while a snow storm leads to a night a passion.
