Everyone in Lone Spur knows Rosie will accept even the most unlovable animal into her life. Men, though, are a different story.

Take Destry, the guy who bought the ranch next door. Sure, he’s handsome and wealthy, but he wears flip-flops to work his fields. Not that Rosie should worry about him getting hurt.

Her biggest concern is that she needs to buy her grandfather’s ranch before her uncle sells it out from under her. The problem is that on her teacher’s salary, she doesn’t qualify for a loan. Her long-time boyfriend, Tanner, proposes a solution—they can get married and qualify for a loan together, only Rosie isn’t sure if her heart is with her faithful fiancĂ©, her ranch, or her swoon-worthy neighbor.

My Review

CHEMISTRY LESSONS was a sweet romance with some fun characters. The small-town feel of the story, the conflicted heroine with a rough past, the hero who is trying to avenge himself, and a surprising romance made for a heartwarming combination. Recommended to those who enjoy romance on the lighter side.

Let's talk about the characters... Rosie wasn't my favorite heroine and had some issues that held her back, but she was still a good character. I would have liked even more depth with her , more emotion, and more growth. I loved Destry! LOVED him! I loved how he was a city guy who was actually willing to get his hands dirty and learn. I loved the flip flops. I loved his intelligence and his drive. Tanner was also an interesting character in the role he played. I can't say I loved him because I didn't like how he worked through issues with Rosie, but he was still a good guy.

I liked how some tough subjects were brought up in the story, such as drunk driving and abuse, but didn't take over. I did think there could have been a little more depth with them, but they were still handled really well. I liked the way the romance developed in the story. There were some really fun and sweet moments that I loved.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was definitely the sweet romance I was looking for. Light, fun, with a happily-ever-after ending. If that's your kind of read, then grab this one.
