Sheri is a free spirit who picks herself up and keeps going no matter what situation she finds herself in. One thing—or person—who does manage to bother her when little else does is Link, her older brother’s friend. He burrows under her skin and stays there.
“I don’t know how he ended up hating me as much as he does. But one thing is for certain, Lincoln cannot stand the sight of me.”
Sheri isn’t one to shy away from a challenge and she has a big one on her hands with her brother, Pat. When things worsen with Pat, she is forced to swallow her pride and enlist Link to help her, the two put aside their bickering and work together. Tensions and emotions reach epic heights.
Sheri can’t seem to commit to anything solid with sexy and attentive Drew even when he makes it clear he wants her by his side. But something is missing. A spark? Seething hatred perhaps? Is the hatred between her and Link merely a mask for passion and longing? Dive into Sheri’s journey to see if she gets her happily ever after.
