Ethan, a young hotshot writer, and Olivia, a teacher whose writing career stalled after one book, find themselves snowbound at a remote bed and breakfast. He shares his sexual exploits online and through best-sellers; she keeps her unpublished second book to herself. It does not take long for opposites to attract and chemistry to ignite. Sex is imminent. But is their attraction driven by love, passion or opportunity?

Recommended for mature audiences due to adult themes and nudity.
