The Marine and Me by Cathie Linz

Cathie Linz's The Marine and Me is part of her Men of Honor series. I might have to search out some more.

How on earth had an intrepid U.S. Marine just gotten maneuvered into dating the librarian next door? Mark it down to a sense of duty but for Steve Kozlowski, meeting Chloe Johnson was like walking over a land mine. For beneath her frumpy exterior was a spirited, sexy woman who could definitely use a lot more excitement in her life. And this die-hard bachelor was just the man to provide it.

At least he was until he discovered how much fun he was having with sweet, kissable Chloe. Had Steve's time-honored strategy for sidestepping a more lasting engagement just backfired?

Take one librarian and one Marine, then add in a matchmaking Polish grandmother, and you've got a really fun, cute, and utterly satisfying romance. I had lots of fun reading this. I really got a sense of Steve and Chloe falling in love. We get scenes of them just talking and bonding, which I loved. This isn't a fast-paced book, but it's not boring. It just focuses on a cute romance. Even the secondary characters are fun, yet don't detract from the main story. I've said before, Silhouette Romances are like palate-cleansing romances. They're just fun. I'm glad I read this one.
