Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.
Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn't know how to stop doing what he does best.
Danica Snow is the smart, practical, appropriate sister, the oldest child who wasn't encouraged to have fun. She's a therapist, with her own townhouse, everything about Danica spells a woman in control of her life, a woman who doesn't have to depend on anyone. Everything except for a man she can trust.
Kaylie Snow is the baby sister, the creative one, the butterfly flitting from relationship to relationship, with most having no meaning to her. She has an apartment, no real schedule, and is constantly partying. No one expects her to do anything important with her life, and she lives by this belief.
Blake Carter lives to conquer women and Arcoskiing. He has sexy good looks, a successful ski store in Allure, Colorado, and a best friend he believes will trust him with everything. Blake has deep feelings for those he cares about, but not women. Women he uses, holding his heart back from serious involvement.
The lives of these three people intersect in a Bar None, and instead of going into the wind, they merge in interesting ways. Melissa Foster crafts a sweet tale of love defined by modern adults, and how their lifestyles change as they realize things aren't what they truly want. Danica the therapist learns she can have a relationship, and that she can chuck her safe, carefully crafted business to follow her heart's desire. Blake realizes his best friend wasn't the man he thought he was, but that he was a better man, torn by a decision. Kayle grasps that she isn't going to disappoint everyone. All of them achieve these things through trial and error – just as most of us do. Their faults add a depth rarely found in romances. I was enthralled from beginning to end, and plan to pick up the rest of the books in this series as they become available.
