This story took a slightly more serious turn from the previous books, but in true Maggie Wells fashion, she managed to find the humor in what could be seen as a major issue in a relationship. She also brought back the awkward "first time" scene, much to my delight. I love the friends to lovers trope, and it was a perfect fit for Del and Mari's story. Del has carried a torch for her for so long, that he had a certain image or expectation in his head. It was funny to read about his fantasies coming true, only for his ego to take a few hits as he learned about the extent of Mari's "problem". I couldn't help but laugh at Del when he tried to give himself little pep talks. Another great installment in the series.
