Chemistry Lessons

About the book: 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 fiancé, her ranch, or her swoon-worthy neighbor. 

My review: This book worked for me for so many reasons, I really loved everything about it! 

I loved Rosie, though I did wonder on her judgement when she decided to accept Tanner's proposal, but I can see the way that desperation led her to not follow her heart. I love the way that she works as hard as she possibly can to work, care for her grandfather, care for all of her animals, and care for the ranch, even as she knows there's really no way she can keep up with everything on her own. 

Then there's the men, Tanner and Destry. I loved Destry, I loved that he is trying to start over and help people that really need help, not even worried about what the gossips are saying about him. I loved the way he was always trying to watch out for Rosie and put her first in almost everything he did. I especially loved the flood scene and all of the things he did for Rosie right then! What a great guy! Tanner on the other hand annoyed me just a little bit from the very first. I was rooting for Destry from the very beginning of the book! 

I loved that this is a clean book that I didn't have to worry about coming across any language or yucky scenes. I loved the plot of this one, such a cute story that I didn't want to put down!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
