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.

Each book in the Credence, Colorado series is STANDALONE:
* Nothing But Trouble
* The Trouble with Christmas
* Asking for Trouble


Delia Munroe had a very difficult past. She has spent the past three years being practically invisible. Her strongest relationships are her brother, the elderly at the home she works at, and her therapist. What is missing is a man in her life. So, she downloads Tinder and prepares to have a little fun. No matter who she meets it will be just for fun. It is too bad that her brother's best friend Tucker Daniels doesn't see her as a desirable woman. If he did, she could simply delete Tinder and go after him.

Tucker is nine years older than Delia, and to him that is a huge gap. Add that to the fact that her overprotective brother is his best friend, and Delis is off-limits. Oh, but he is so drawn to her. She is beautiful, kind and sexy. But, Tucker will keep his hands off. He vows to protect her at all times, even being her wingman when she tries a Tinder date from time to time.

Tucker knows that Delia likes him. After all, as the owner of a bar, he is rather adept at reading people. This presents a huge problem when it comes to Delia. He doesn't want her hurt, especially if she is going to be meeting men she meets on Tinder. Can he look out for her without his libido taking over? 

I felt for Delia the whole way through. And I loved the fact that this book shared some of her thoughts and feelings when speaking with her therapist. I love that therapy is losing the stigma that exists in this world. On the other hand, her innocence was a bit much. And to me, nine years is not all that much of an age difference when both people are adults. There was a bit of humor in this book and that balanced the dark moments that came with Delia's past. All I wanted from the very beginning of this book was for Delia to find the happiness that she deserved. It was a nice journey watching things unfold between her and Tucker. 

Many thanks to Entangled Amara and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion. 


Amy is an award-winning, USA Today best-selling Aussie author who has written seventy contemporary romances in both the traditional and digital markets. Her books bring all the feels from sass and quirk and laughter to emotional grit to panty-melting heat. She loves frequent travel, good books and great booze although she’ll take mediocre booze if there’s nothing else. For many, many years she was a registered nurse. Which means she knows things. Anatomical things. And she’s not afraid to use them! She’s just moved back to her central Queensland roots taking a sea change in the pretty little coastal town of Yeppoon where she gets to stare at the ocean all day.


  1. Oh I'll have to pick this one up - I love when therapy is included in books! It helps to normalize it for sure

  2. Delia sounds like an endearing character, I can see why you liked her.

  3. I'm not a cowboy fan but glad you enjoyed the book. Great review.

  4. been a while since i read a cowboy romance

  5. In general, I always love books published by Entangled and this one looks like a fun read as well. A Cowboy romance is always good imo. Thanks for sharing!
