Destry (Rough & Hard #1) by Lola Stark

Destry (Rough and Hard, #1)

Rancher Destry Reeves is your typical country boy; he believes in hard work and the easy life. None of which he recognises in Amelia Highsmith.

When a chance encounter involving a cow, a truck and a dark Texan night puts the two on a collision course, it's not long before the fireworks begin and the simple life is turned upside down.

The last thing Amelia expects is for a brute of a cowboy to get in the way of her new life. She's left behind a world of high class dinners and city lights in an effort to escape a life she never wanted. Amelia finds herself in a world so far removed from home that it becomes impossible to break free without finding herself first.

Drawn together by an inexplicable attraction, Destry and Amelia must decide if such an unlikely pairing can ever survive.

I managed to get my sneaky little mitts on an early copy of Destry. *insert high pitched squeal*

I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was different, compared to Lola's other books Tattered Love and Conflicted Love. It was more of a contemporary romance, I really liked this change in Lola's writing, I found that Destry came across as a more personal book. Lola has mentioned that this was written during some tough times, and without knowing what those tough times where you could feel it, her heart was really immersed into this book. It is like she gives the reader a little bit of herself with Destry. Destry, in my opinion is Ms Stark's best work yet.

The characters are all extremely likeable. The cowboy's --yes there are more than one of them-- are all hot stuff. My favourite had to be Braxton, he is just a sweetheart, and sometimes the sweethearts win a little corner of your heart. The story was fantastic and I for one can't wait to read more this series.
