Story Overview:
Their love was ancient history...until their paths crossed again.

Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he's back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career--if he doesn't steal her heart first. Samantha's vowed to hate him, but it's more than anger heating the competition between them.

With sparks flying across the conference table and sizzling in every touch, Dean proposes a weekend liaison. Anything to have Sam again; anything to get her out of his system. But the unresolved feelings between them complicate both their personal and professional lives, and one wild weekend could turn into a disaster that would destroy the one job that means more to Samantha than anything. For a shot at it worth the risk?

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book. Sam and Dean were an item for a summer filled with adventure and love five years ago. Both were devastated when it ended and never expected to see each other again. Since then, things have changed a lot for both of them. Sam left her law practice. Dean started his own company. Now they are both competing for a contract to work on revitalizing Route 66 and they both want this contract really badly. For Sam, it's a chance at financial security with a full-time job. For Dean, it's a chance to reconnect with his father.

What neither one of them ever expected was to run into each other in the lobby. Now they have to wait the entire weekend to find out who got the contract, which gives them a chance for some time together. For both of them, this weekend is a time to reconnect for old times' sake, but soon they find that leaving their relationship at only a weekend may be harder than they thought.

I enjoyed this book a lot. Sam and Dean are both passionate about revitalizing and environmental issues. For Sam, that is entirely from Dean's influence for that incredible summer, which I thought was an interesting twist. Everything she does now is because of the influence he had that one summer. He's left an indelible mark on her heart and her entire life.

I liked the part that Dean's family played in the story and the contrast between them and Sam's family. 

These are both fun characters who enjoy adventure and each other. It makes the book really fun to read and highly entertaining.
