Her Summer with the Marine (The Donovan Brothers #1) 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.

This was my first Bliss title and I was not disappointed! I connected immediately with Ellie, being that I've had family members with Alzheimer's.  It's a difficult journey and I thought she dealt with it well.  She put her own needs aside and was there for her father when he needed her most.  I loved how both characters were driven by the need to help their families.

Ellie and Finn were always bumping heads but I felt it was because they were the same person!  I enjoyed watching them compete in everything.  This book was flirty, funny but yet had it's serious and darker moments.  I felt Susan Meier was able to tie in all of these quirks into one book very nicely.  I'm excited to follow this series and read about the other Donovan brothers!
