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.

My Review

First things first lets just all take a moment to appreciate that hot ass cover! 

Destry is my first Lola Stark read and let me just say I'm definetly a fan! I cannot wait to read more from this author.

Destry is the story of Amelia, a 28 year old women who is living a life her family is forcing upon her. Then one day she finds her fiancé and her sister doing the nasty on her Egyptian cotton sheets! Now with an excuse to leave a life she wants no part of, Amelia heads for the open road in hopes of discovering herself and a life she controls. 

Enter Destry...after hearing of a broken fence and an escaped cow Destry finds Amelia literally punching and screaming at his cow in the middle of the road in the middle of the night and her majorly damaged car off to the side. 

So what's a well mannered cowboy to do in the middle of nowhere and in the middle of the night with a women in need? Why of course offer her a place to stay! 

And stay she will for 2 weeks while her car is being fixed! 

It's at this point that I honestly start really liking this book. From here we see Destry as a brooding male, trying to not be affected by Amelia and all the feelings she insights in him. And vice versa for Amelia. And let me tell you the sexual tension begins to build and it's palpable. 

I really found that Destry and Amelia's chemistry just kept growing and growing, I would find myself laughing, smiling, even getting a bit teary and swooning all throughout this book.
There is just the perfect balance of sexual tension, need and angst and when they finally give in to each other it makes for some sexy scenes! I could have gone for a few more sex scenes with a bit more dirty talk, but overall it was still hot!

★★☆ 4 cowboy lovin' stars!☆★★
