“Town man” Josh Douglass meets “country man” Ben Bauer at a mutual friend’s wedding, and passion kindles immediately. As urbanite wedding planner Josh and closeted contractor Ben spend more time together, they develop a deep, comfortable romance despite the fifty miles between their homes—and despite the drastic differences in their lifestyles. But as they grow closer, it becomes apparent that Josh and Ben have been enjoying the first flush of love without giving much thought to longer-term logistics. 

A crisis leads Josh to ask himself serious questions about how his relationship with Ben can realistically work. But just as Josh is feeling ready to talk about the next step with Ben, a misunderstanding threatens their love affair. Compromise is the key to any relationship, but it isn’t always easy to balance careers, friendships, and family expectations. Josh and Ben just need to see that bringing together the best of both their worlds is well worth the sacrifices they’ll have to make to remain in each other’s life.

Sweet romance.
Overall 
 
3.5
Town man, country man is a sweet, low angst, minimal drama, high romance story. The MCs are genuinely likeable characters, the descriptive writing in the book is very well done, and there is a good dose of humour too. The storyline of this novel is really appealing and beautifully delivered; the only place that it really falls down for me is in the intimate scenes. The sex feels a bit perfunctory for my taste, a little lacking in emotion, which seems at odds with the feelings that are portrayed throughout the rest of the story. 
It's a good story, with solid writing and endearing characters, that is well worth a read; it just missed the mark a little for me with the physical relationship.
