The lines in Miami financier Jake Westin's world are crisp and easy to delineate: black and red, profit and loss, single and planning to stay that way. Until the day after Thanksgiving when Allison Jeffries—a woman he’s heard about for four and a half years but never met—calls to tell him the world they’ve shared from opposite sides of the country will never be the same.
Kenny Rydell—Jake's best friend and only link to the "bad ol' days" of his youth—and wife Pam died in a car accident on the way to a Sierra ski resort, leaving their son, Caleb, with his grandmother, who suffered a heart attack upon hearing the news.
Lives changed in a blink.
Caleb’s godparents—two grieving strangers who never imagined the worst-case scenario becoming a reality—must decide how to best care for the little boy they both love. The confirmed “rake” and the computer “geek” call a truce to survive the holidays, but no one expects them to fall in love --except, possibly Caleb.
