Title: Destry (Rough & Hard #1)
Author: Lola Stark
Released: March 24, 2014

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.

Amelia is trapped in her "perfect" life.

How it worked in our family was the daughters were supposed to marry somebody with equal breeding, equal intellect and equal money.
Love had nothing to do with it.
So when Amelia catches her fiance in a compromising position, she sets off with no real plan .... only to get away from the only life she's known. 

Fate and a stubborn cow land her at the Reeves' ranch where she meets siblings Destry, Austin, Braxton, and Ellie-May. Amelia is stranded at their ranch until her car is repaired. The last thing Amelia wants is to fall for the gorgeous, stubborn and stand-offish Destry. The last thing Destry wants is to fall for the uppity, beautiful city girl driving him crazy.

And, of course, that's what happens....

I am such a fan of Lola's work! Love the Needles Kiss series and am looking forward to the upcoming books in this series (looks like each sibling will have a book). Destry is a quick and light read ... not a lot of character development, unfortunately, and I would've liked to know these characters better. They are likable as is and I suspect I might just love them as the series goes on and I get to know them more.

Lola Stark lives in Australia, Is an at home mummy with no filter raising a hoard of minions and a husband who sometimes appears not to have grown up. Lola has loved to read for as long as she can remember. When not wrangling the family she can be found sitting at her computer , writing, facebooking or just generally messing around.
