|Summary, etc.:||"Aspiring chef Cade Maxwell is immediately, viscerally attracted to Winter Jacobson. But it's not her mouthwatering curves he's drawn to--it's the strange emptiness in her eyes. When Cade saves her from a drunken customer with grabby hands, he's shocked at her response... Winter doesn't need Cade's help. After a lifetime of getting by on her own, she's happy to rely on herself. She's exactly seventy-six days away from graduating college, and if she can hold it together that long, she'll finally be able to rise above the crappy hand she was dealt. But now, every time she turns around, Cade is there, ready to push her, smile at her, distract her from her plans. Winter knows she can't afford to open up--especially to a man she's terrified to actually want.."--|

*Starred Review* Bounced around the foster care system as a child, Winter doesn't allow herself to rely on or get close to anyone because she knows he or she will only let her down. With only 76 days to go before she graduates college, she meets aspiring chef Cade when he stops a customer who gets hands-on in the bar/restaurant where she works. Winter doesn't appreciate Cade's coming to her rescue, especially when the table leaves her a 17-cent tip and she is stuck figuring out how to make her rent. Cade falls hard, but it takes a lot to melt Winter's heart. Cade is HOT, and his tattoos and piercings make him look tough, but underneath he is a marshmallow with a motorcycle. Cade is also struggling; his father died when he was only 10, and his mother lost her battle with breast cancer just a couple of years ago. Cade has been helping his younger sister take care of her daughter while he attends culinary school, putting everything else on the back burner. The slow build of Winter and Cade's relationship is satisfying and real. Walsh's debut raises the bar for NA books and will leave readers hungry for more. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
Brighton Walsh, author of Plus One and Season of Second Chances, spent nearly a decade as a professional photographer before deciding to take her storytelling in a different direction and reconnect with her first love: writing. When she’s not pounding away at the keyboard, she’s probably either reading or shopping—maybe even both at once. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and two children, and, yes, she considers forty degrees to be hoodie weather. Her home is the setting for frequent dance parties, Lego battles, and more laughter than she thought possible.
