Lucas Abbott and his identical twin grew up sharing everything—including a reputation for funny, idiotic behavior. But now that Lucas is ready to shed that lovable-idiot image, grow up and have a real, adult relationship, the joke’s on him. He and his twin have fallen for the same woman.
Crushed and hoping a few days on the slopes will work out his frustrations, he heads for Stowe, Vermont. All thought of fun and relaxation flies away as a car spins out in a snowstorm, and his firefighter/paramedic training kicks into high gear.
Danielle Rowson is hoping to pick up the pieces and build a new life for herself and her daughter in Vermont. Winding up in a ditch in the middle of a blizzard isn’t part of the plan—and neither is the kind, sexy rescuer whose strong hands pull them to safety.
Lucas has been a little kid, a big kid and now an adult—and he discovers that adulting has more than one advantage. Especially when it comes to sharing with Dani and Savannah the one thing that’s his and his alone: his love.

I don't know how Marie is able to continuously write such great characters. I am amazed at how she can write about a family with ten siblings and give each one of them (and their significant others) a unique personality. Once I started reading this story I couldn't put it down. That is normal if I'm reading a mystery or a suspenseful book, but this is just a straight up romantic story and I still couldn't get away from these great characters.
I've been in love with the Abbott's since All You Need is Love and the supporting characters have always been as much a part of the story as the main characters. This book may focus a bit more on Lucas and Dani, but I think that is a good thing since it helps give Lucas his own personality beyond being Landon's twin.
The last part of the book I really found relatable is around Lucas's "transformation" into being an adult. As a woman in her late 30's, I sometimes feel like I'm not really the adult I'm supposed to be seen as, so I get where Lucas is coming from wanting to be seen that way as well. What I've learned, and he comes to learn, is that we always were the adult underneath and people see both the responsible and fun sides, even if it doesn't feel that way. So while I said earlier that this story is a straight-up romance, it is also a journey of self-discovery for both Lucas and Dani.
