Can their love survive the judgment of others?
Turning the big 4-0 has Jocelyn Nichols sitting at her favorite restaurant bar, alone, forgoing a night out with her girlfriends to reflect on her life. She's a wealthy widow whose biggest regret is living a life void of adventure. The future is flooded with concerns: the what nows and where to even start?
Mason Kopp, co-owner of the popular restaurant, The Viggo, has seen the alluring blonde several times, but he's never had a chance to speak with her. But it's a slow night, and the thoughtful woman calls to him. He's both surprised and pleased when it doesn't take much to convince her to join him for a night of adventure—after he promises to be on his best behavior.
Jocelyn is captivated by her blooming friendship with the devilishly handsome, young, bar owner. Thirteen years younger to be exact. A fact that she reminds herself of often, and more so with Mason's desire to make her his.
She finds herself falling for the outgoing man who helps push her toward a life and career that she never believed she could have. But there is one little complication: thirteen years. Passive remarks from their friends start to plant seeds of doubt that the couple could have a real future together. The saying that age is just a number is proving to be just that—a saying.
A determined Mason is ready to convince Jocelyn that they are meant for one another, the world be damned. But can he do it before she runs?
