*Destry by Lola Stark



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.

This cover is superb! Screen Saver worthy I tell you... :)   Yeppers...  I added him to my screen saver collection on my computer.  Complete and total hotness!  Every time I look at this guy I get distracted...  oh, wait...  I'm supposed to be writing a review...  sorry!    Well, here it is...

Book one of this series is around 140 pages... so this is short, sweet, steamy and to the point!
Amelia comes from wealth and has been bred to be the perfect stepford wife. After a shocking discovery involving her fiance' and sister she takes off in an angry huff and finds herself stranded and taking temporary refuge at a Texas ranch. This is where we meet the hotness called Destry (I love that name by the way) and his brothers Braxton and Austin. Insert love bird connection between Amelia and Destry! 
Since this is short I won't elaborate too much about the plot. The story moves quickly and felt a little rushed in the beginning. But, I thought the second half of the book more than made up for that... that's when the characters finally started growing on me.  Love these cowboys!  And, life is much better for Amelia now that she is choosing her own path.  Apparently she is also distracted by hot sweaty cowboys.  :) 
The epilogue at the end of this book was epic... I was shocked and totally not expecting what was revealed! I was also grinning from ear to ear. I definitely have to read the next book because I just gotta' know more about Braxton and his secrets and how the family will cope. And, me thinks there is a little something going on with Austin as well... hhhhmmmmmmm
This was a fun, quick and easy read. The steam factor was just right... not too much and not too little. And now, we wait for the next installment!
