After three years in Credence trying to fade into the background, Della Munroe is sick of being invisible. She’s ready to take back control. To live a little. Hell, she’s ready to see what this dating fuss is all about. And if that means she has to download Tinder and date every guy in Colorado, then she’s up for it.
After her first disastrous attempt, she decides navigating online dating would be better with a wingman, and there’s no better person for it than Tucker Daniels. After all, he is a man. And he owns a bar, which practically makes him a relationship expert. He’s also her older brother’s best friend. Yes, she may have the teeniest tiny inconvenient crush on him, but he’s always had her back.
Tucker Daniels would rather eat broken glass than watch Della go out with a bunch of douchebag dudes only out for one thing. Unfortunately, he’s never been able to say no to her, and before he knows it, Tucker’s not only vetting her dates—he’s teaching her to drive, helping her move out, and buying her a puppy!
But when Della wants him to tutor her in more intimate arts, he freaks out. Because this little sister is strictly off-limits, and saying yes to Della is asking for a whole lot of trouble.
Title: Asking for Trouble
Series: Credence, Colorado #3
Author: Amy Andrews
Genre: Modern Western Romance
Published: April 27, 2020
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Asking for Trouble is the third title in the Credence, Colorado series, and this one is full of laughs, some unintentional since I often laughed at Tucker’s response to Della’s shenanigans. It’s also full of growing, trusting, and living life once again as Della steps beyond the initial healing of leaving her abusive marriage behind and starts to look to her own future happiness. It’s such a combination of amusing, sadness, learning to spread hesitant wings, and falling in love with the good guy, the kind of guy Della needed in her life. Watching Tucker slowly go beyond she’s a fragile piece of glass or she’s his best friend’s sister to allowing his feelings for this amazingly brave woman to show through all the rest was pure joy for me. And frankly, if I wasn’t already a bit in love with Tucker myself – the puppy would have been the final touch.
With a secondary cast of characters to make you swoon or laugh out loud (or in my case, giggle-snort at some erm… mature ladies), Asking for Trouble was an emotional story with a real-life feel when needed most, and a fun sexy romantic comedy at other times. It’s hard to put this one in any particular trope for there are actually several here so I stopped trying and simply enjoyed a really good story about two people falling in love and getting beyond the past and on to their future. I’ve enjoyed this series so much and I’m definitely waiting for the next release, it can’t come soon enough for me.
