Ok, I like contemporary books that have friends realizing their attraction to each other later in life, I also enjoy books where the hero and heroine bicker and such throughout the book as they fight their attraction for one an other. I enjoy books where one of the parties is in denial or refuses to admit to the attraction, until they are overcome and give in. Any suggestions? please no supernatural or non-contemporary.

This sounds like most romance books I have read.

I can think of Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard.  I loved the way they ended up together in this one.

Also, Nobody's Baby But Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips has quite a bit of bickering and it is dang funny too.  It is part of the football series which I found quite entertaining if you like to laugh.

Bare Necessaties (Blaze). Can't remember author off hand. Although this isn't "later in life". They are in their 20's.  He's her older brother's BF/college roommate. She has a crush on him as a teenager. He makes like he doesn't like her because he know her brother would kill him if he touched her as a teenager. 

Shameless (Extreme Blaze) Woman goes into business with 2 male friends.  One is secretly in love with her, the other just lusts after her. Who will she choose?

I know I've read others but I'm drawing a blank right now.
