Elise Campbell wants to learn how to ice skate. It's one of the many things—like biking and swimming—she never learned how to do in her screwed up childhood.
When she goes to the outdoor rink one brutally cold morning in January, she hopes no one will be there to see her fall all over the ice. Instead she meets Zach, who's so sexy that looking at him makes her fall even more.
Zach Adams is trying to work off his anger over the tragic death of his best friend. He's tired of punishing his body at the gym, so he goes to the rink instead, where he ends up helping a cute woman who's never been skating before.
He continues to meet her every Sunday to teach her how to skate, even though he knows he's no good for her. His best friend was the relationship man, the family man. Zach never wanted anything serious, and his lone relationship was a disaster. But he can't ignore the way things have been heating up on the ice with Elise.
