Peyton McAdams doesn't want a thing to do with Colt Patterson...except she has had a crush on him since they were little. Recently, they also had a nice little romp in the shower together. But Peyton thinks she's just another notch in Colt's belt and is determined NOT to fall in love. Love is just a game and it destroys people. She decides to focus solely on the new all natural soap store she's opening with her sisters and NOT on Colt Patterson. Colt Patterson is Willow Valley's hometown hockey hero...or rather fallen hero. He is trying to make sense of his recently ruined life and his attraction to Peyton throws off his plans to wallow in his apartment, drinking away his sorrows. He finds himself drawn to her...and back to Willow Valley. Can Colt and Peyton keep their fiery attraction to a dull roar and commit to just being friends or will the temptation be too strong to keep them apart?
