Ride a Cowboy by Delilah Devlin

Ride a Cowboy by Delilah Devlin

Book blurb from EC:

Katelyn Carter came to rural Texas to lick her wounds and start over after her failed marriage, but a sexy young cowboy seems determined to show her that love is still in the cards for this single librarian.

Sheriff's deputy Daniel Bodine answers a 911 call to remove a rattlesnake from his new neighbor's bedroom. What he finds is an embarrassed Katelyn, dressed in little more than her pretty pink blushes. One little omission later, and he's working for the lady as her handyman.

Burned once by a man, Katelyn fights her growing attraction but finds Daniel more temptation than she can resist. When he shows her he knows his way around a woman's body as well as he does a hammer and a saw, she takes a walk on the nasty side, vainly hoping she can keep her heart free of entanglement.

I'm not quite sure what to say about this book. It's rather, well, average. Nice writing, nice story, nice characters, it's all very...nice. But not exceptional. So I did like this story about two people falling in love, it doesn't have much to tell. There's no real conflict, but that's not always a problem when the rest of the romance is exceptional. Unfortunately, it's just average.

So...Ride a Cowboy isn't a bad book, but neither is it a truly exceptional one. It's trying to be a sweet romance with heat, but I'm getting more sexual tension from the Silhouette Romance I'm reading (not to mention more sweet romance).
