Her Summer with the Marine by Susan Meier  Their competition has never been so irresistible

The last person Ellie McDermott wanted to run into after returning to her hometown is Finn Donovan, her high school nemesis and the guy she crossed the line from enemies to lovers with one night years ago. Now ex-military, tattooed, and still sexy as hell, Finn is a complication Ellie doesn’t need—she needs to concentrate on saving her family business.

Finn’s entire life, Ellie was there, going head-to-head with him in every class, bee, and test. So it’s no surprise she’d show up just as he was about to take over her father's struggling business. It is a surprise, though, that his attraction to her is even more explosive than it had been. Acting on their attraction is one thing, but Finn has to turn a profit to save his own family, and nothing—not even love—will get in his way. 
     How many times have you said, “If only?” or wish, if only things could have happened differently.  Or, if we could have a, “do over.”  Would you?  Or you thought things were one way but they weren’t?  This story is that. 
     This is one deep book.  OMG!  You laugh and cry during it. Yet, it is so worth every tissue and tear it.  This author really knows how to grip you in the depth of your emotions to feel the characters pain and joys.
     Ellie McDermott is called home to Harmony Hills, Penn. By the Chief of Police.  Her dear widowed father was found wandering in the park across the street naked.  Ellie leaves her life as an ad agent in Pittsburg with not a thought to get to her father.
     It turns out he has Alzheimer’s and will need long term care.  Ellie has some major decisions to make, you see her dad owns McDermott’s Mortuary.  Before the sun had really set that first day Finn Donovan comes a calling.
     Who’s he you ask?  Finn is only the man who was the boy who competed with Ellie for every quiz, contest, or award since grade school.  He was also the guy who deflowered her.  Now, he sees that the opportunity has opened up for him to make a move on her dad’s business and he does.  Why?  Why, would he want it and can’t she run it and will she need the steady income from it to help take care of her dad?
     But, could she ever sell it to the man who stole the most prized gift a woman has?  Especially, without ever looking back or talking to her again until now?  Surprisingly it can be resolved and there is a HEA.  But don’t expect it to be smooth sailing it is bumpy and there will be a lot of tears at least there were for me.  Very good story that I gave 5 stars.
