With new rules and new players on the ice, will Fallon and Lucas be able to work out their differences and work as a team or will they be left trying to score alone.
Anything that deals with wine I love.  This has some spoilers in it... sorry... I try not to ever do this!  Although this was a good story, I had a few reservations about it.  I really thought the main character, Fallon, was going to be a nice lady because she worked do hard to get where she was. Yet, when I found out what the big secret was I thought she was really mean.  Lucas meets the apple of his eye, his own son.  What? Yes I said son, Aiden.  Like any book there is always a character that the reader instantly dislikes, which was Fallon in my case.  She was so mean and stubborn, if that is even the right word, towards Luke.  I think she did not use her entire brain when dealing with the situation and kept thinking Luke could do much better.   This story is about love lost and found again,  in a form you would never have imagined.
