Instant Temptation (Wilder #3) by Jill Shalvis

The third installment of the Wilder brothers series is also inappropriately named.  The attraction between T.J. Wilder and Harley has existed for years.  More so than T.J. even knows.  Years ago a Harley gave her virginity to a very drunk T.J. who has no recollection of the event.  Harley has compared every man she has been with since to T.J. and they come up lacking.  T.J. went on to love and lose Sam a reckless daredevil and has spent the intervening years running long adventures all over the world for the Wilder bros. adventure company.  Harley has spent the intervening years working two jobs, studying for her degree in Wildlife Biology, and supporting her parents and sister.  Whenever T.J. and Harley are in the same place at the same time she bristles and he can’t understand why.  Harley has finally gotten her degree and is interning for a company doing a study on coyotes.  She needs to go into the field to repair some cameras and it ends up with Harley and T.J. spending some quality time together in the great outdoors.  This is another case of opposites not being quite so opposite.  Harley comes from a loving but dysfunctional family and T.J. comes from a home with an absent mother and abusive father.  But both have taken responsibility for their sibs.  Because of Sam T.J. has been afraid to take a chance on love and because of T.J. so is Harley.  They are so perfect for each other it was fun watching them finally get there.
