She loves him. She loves him not. 
When Cassandra Porter was seven years old, she fell in love with her next door neighbor and her best friends brother. Cass loved that boy every single day…until he broke her heart and all that remained were the pieces.
Ten years and what feels like a lifetime apart, that boy—now a grown and sexy, warm blooded man—is thrust back into her life. He might make her temper flair and blood boil, but a few unresolved feelings are no match for the way her heart races when he is near…
She drives him the good kind of crazy. 
Paxton Luke led his life with one thing on his mind: success. Friends and family come first, with no room for emotional attachments—not even with the neighbor girl, who's turned into a complete knockout. His sister's best friend. Emotions only lead to love, and love was trouble.
They’re determined to fight this undeniable attraction to the bitter end. It’s too damn bad their hearts are about to get love drunk-- wasted on love.

This was my first book by Shirl Rickman. I loved the premise of this story, and it gave me so much more. The Heroine Cass was a bit tough to swallow just because she is such a rank witch to Paxton. I can understand wanting to keep someone at arms length though. This was a very slow burn of a book, lots of flash backs to them growing up, which really helped set the story for present. The characters were well developed, and the story was really good, and kept me turning the pages. I will be more than happy to read more by this author. This story is told in alternating views.
