Professional athlete Oliver Pike would do just about anything to help his struggling brother, even if that means setting aside his own career difficulties to take a busload of retirees on a multinational tour.
But trouble arises before they clear the Canadian Rockies, forcing the bus off-route and into a small town. And in the hold of the bus, amid the walkers and luggage, lies a half-frozen stowaway.
Once thawed, Page Maddux proves to be commitment-phobic, irreverent, and maddeningly attractive. She is also the person Oliver must rely upon to help keep the "oldsters," as she calls them, out of harm's way.
When their week together is over, will the town recover from the group's exploits? And given Page's tendency to run, what will become of Oliver's heart?
Opposite of Frozen is a full-length standalone novel and combines the emotionality of a Kristan Higgins romance with the quirkiness of a Penny Reid. See why Kirkus Reviews said, "If O'Hara's next books are anything like this one, she's got a long career ahead of her."
