Product description

Product Description

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 loved Destry and Amelia's story, I know there's a wild girl in every woman but I love that she was able to be herself on the farm. (Farms can bring out the best in people, I loved being free and dirty) The beginning started with a bang and I wanted to save her. I wanted to kill that ass and her sister, What, really, I was so angry. Her frantic drive to get away from that life was soon stopped by a huge piece of meat haha loved that. Destry is a real cowboy working the land being the protecter of his family and being damn hot. Oh lucky Melia, her s***** life catches up and turns to s*** but finally she gets her chance to tell her story. I am guessing from the ending we will hear more from Destry's family, his brothers, swoon worthy hotties and his gorgeous younger sis.

5.0 out of 5 stars No secrets, no fears, no regrets. 27 March 2014

What can I say? there is nothing I can really say I dislike about this book. Except maybe for 136 pages 3.99$ is a bit much. It was very short. But damn, even that doesn't put me off. it was amazing and added to my favorite pile. It was worth that 3.99$ and more. At first when it started off I was like " oh no, here we go again, another woman catching her husband screwing another girl." but I continued on and gave it a chance and it ended up being unlike anything I have read. I LOVE cowboy stories. The men are just sweet as pie and ooze sex appeal. Amelia catches her douchebag of a fiance screwing her sister and she takes off. She is ran off the road by a stray cow and wrecks her car. Along comes the owner of said cow. Destry. Amelia decides to stay with the family while her car is being fixed. Destry is pig headed and stubborn. And boy oh boy is he something else. All those Reeve's men are. He clearly has an attraction to the beautiful and feisty Amelia. They both try and fight the feelings and the inevitable happens. They hook up. But they try to keep it from never happening again. But sadly, they simply cannot fight the feeling they have. These two were adorable and had some of the HOTTEST sex ever. Damn, the pond scene. Oh baby. Where can I find a Destry or a Austin? sweet baby Jesus. I loved that Amelia stepped out of her comfort and what she was used to and faced that ranch and those boys head on. There was humor, laughter, happiness, love, lust, steaminess. The entire book was amazing and I cannot think of one thing wrong. Except I want more. And I want Destry to find me and impregnate me. No lie. Amelia ran away from her life and soon it catches up with her and bites them all in the a$$. Can Destry forgive Amelia for the lies and secrets she kept from him? or will he lose his true love forever? you will have to read to find out!

"You're all I have now, Destry. You're all I want,"

"This is where you belong. You're a country girl through and through. You fit here, darlin'. You fit me."

"I think I like your particular flavor of sin,"

Amelia catches her fiance in the act of cheating on her with her sister. After telling them she hopes they're happy, she jumps in her Audi and leaves. Randomly selecting a destination on a map, she crashes her car when she tries to avoid a cow standing in the middle of the road. After taking her frustrations out on the cow, she spins around when she hears the sexy male voice. And he is hot! Destry can't believe he's out in the middle of night dealing with a cow and the hot little city girl, but he's drawn to her. Upon realizing he has no other choice, he offers to let her stay at his house until her car is repaired. When his brothers flirt with her, he sees red and quickly realizes he's falling for the little city girl. But she hasn't told him her secret and why she left home and it soon catches up with her. And Destry doesn't tolerate lies or secrets.

I loved Destry. He's such a hot moody guy, but when he loves, he loves with all his heart. Melia is good for him and makes him happy for the first time in forever. Melia's family are horrible, and she loves the countryside much more than the city. The brothers are great and I can't wait to read their stories as well.

This was a sweet and pretty fast story.

I have been a huge Fan of Lola for awhile and this is a new spin for her! I absolutely loved this new book from Lola about the SEXY as Sin Cowboy Destry and the cow beating Amelia!
This Story starts out with Amelia Running after she walks in on her lack luster fiancee working over someone other than her...
She then proceeds to crash her car, after avoiding a cow might I add and staying in a small town on the family farm with no other thank hunka-lickalbe Destry.. They seem to try and avoid each other and fight the chemistry that is undeniable.. but after some close calls and one pond dipping finally realize they could really work something out.. This is until Amelia Heads home to her control freak family to tie up loss ends. While gone fireworks erupt.. and can they work things out.. I don't want to give anymore away.. But I LOVED this book!! It was sooo different from Lola's other work but I feel in love with it all the same! What another great job! I just keep falling more in love wit her work each published book more! I also did love that the sista was reading Lola's bestie David's book.. which I also recommend!! Enjoy.. this is deffinately a keeper!!!

This is not a book like the ones we are used to from Lola Stark, but in a good way. I was pleasantly surprised.

Destry is a fast read, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm a huge Lola fan, so I'm not surprised I loved it. Destry, holy s***, he is soooo hot!! I loved him since the moment he said "S'cuse me, ma'am. You mind not givin' my cattle a hidin'?" LOL. He is a cowboy(In case the cover didn't give it away)and lives in a ranch with his brothers, sister and grandparents. Amelia is a city girl with a family(if you can even call them that) who wants her to do what they want, when they want it and how they want it. And she can't put up with it anymore runs away and crash(literally) into Destry's life. The chemistry is there and they can't deny how they feel for each other for long. But what happens when her past comes and bites her in the a**?? Well, I guess you'll have to read it to know what happens ;)

I loved the ending, which is basically a little taste of what we'll get next. And I can't freaking wait!! #GiveMeSomeBrax

I liked this book. It was a little short and I felt like it could have used a little more depth and background on the characters. I didn't feel real invested in the outcome of their relationship because I didn't feel like I got to know enough about them to care that much. I liked it for what it was but I've liked other books Lola Stark has written much more.
