Running into your ex is awkward. Especially when they’re half naked and it’s below freezing in the Scottish Highlands.
Maya Bashir is driving home for Christmas. Knowing her goal-oriented father is waiting at home, ready for her to explain the fact that yes, she’s just lost her high-paying job as an accountant and yes, she’s also just left a long-term relationship, a stop-in at her friend’s hen party enroute doesn’t feel like a bad delay tactic.
Until Maya walks in to find the last person she expects, or wants, to see – her childhood sweetheart and the boy who first broke her heart, Sam Holland. And Sam is naked. Serving drinks.
Sam is working an extra job to help his friend get by after being made redundant. And any reason to get out of the house when his on-and-off-again girlfriend gets in one of her moods is always a good thing. But little did he expect Maya Bashir to come barrelling back into his life, learning about his secret side-hustle and taking back her old job alongside him at his daytime role as a ski instructor on the slopes of the Scottish Highlands.
As both Sam and Maya realise that their reason for heartbreak so many years ago wasn’t entirely as it seemed, they must learn to stand up for what they truly desire in life. Or else they face losing one another and their chance at finally finding happiness, forever.
