This is the first sweet romance I've read in a long time. I didn't go into it knowing there would be zero sex in the book, but surprisingly that didn't cause much of an issue for me with this story. While I do think a little more heat could have been worked in, them not sleeping together did fit the plot. I'd rather that than to have the author force it and have it be out of place.
Connor and Alexis were good together. Even though they came from completely different backgrounds, they complimented each other well. I liked the set up even if it was a little cliche. Once I got over that, I was able to settle into the story itself and for the most part, I liked it.
There were a few things, however, that knocked this book down for me. First was the lack of communication. Yes, I get they were relative strangers, but there were times when I just wanted to scream at them to say something, anything, to the other person. And that brings me to the pacing. Most of the time the pacing was good, but there were a few places where things felt rushed. I'm not sure if that was due to word count or what, but it would have been nice to slow things down and let us get to know Connor and Alexis more.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a sweet cowboy romance.
