It was also interesting to see how Rosie and Destry's relationship developed and how they both dealt with how addiction had affected their lives. Some of the events that brought us to the ending were a bit corny, but overall the whole plot and story worked.
I enjoyed seeing how each character grew and changed into better people, using their experiences to launch them into a better place and how their choices, though not always perfect, gave a fairly good idea of the reality the characters lived in.
A good, clean romance! Thank you!!!
This was a sweet story with likable characters and a nice romance. Rosie and Destry were both likable characters and you cant help buy root for them to figure things out. I’m not a big fan of love triangles, but I can see why authors use them and lets face it, that happens in real life all the time, so it’s realistic to use them in novels. While this is a sweet romance, it does deal with some serious issues. I appreciate when an author can keep things from getting too dark, since I like to read as a nice escape. I’m a sucker for small towns, especially ones that have that “western” feel to them. Overall, I thought this was a good read.
The author did a nice job with the hometown/small-town feel. I hope I won't spoil it too much by saying nice resolution.
Content: clean, talk of alcohol and drug (not condoned)
I could not stop reading this book. If you love rancher/farm life books then this is the book for you, even if you don't like those kinds of books I think you could still enjoy it.
It is about a 28 year old high school science teacher whose name is Hurricane, but everyone calls her Rosie. Also a business man who feels guilt driven to build a retreat facility for recovered addicts. This is a great book!
Chemistry Lessons was a clean, contemporary romance that focused on Rosie, a woman who is trying to run her ailing grandfather's ranch, & Destry, a man who has purchased a ranch next to hers. Destry is a genuine, well-traveled, educated man who has prospered from his business and wants to help others by turning his ranch into a retreat for recovering addicts after the loss of his brother to drugs. Rosie is a hard-working, strong willed woman who wants to buy her grandfathers ranch as a home for the stray animals she has rescued over the years but doesn't qualify for a loan working as a school teacher. Her boyfriend, Tanner, a man she's known since childhood, proposes they marry and apply for the loan together so they can save the ranch. Rosie agrees but she can't help noticing her new, handsome neighbor when fate seems to be pushing him into her life in unexpected ways. She has to make the daunting choice of saving her families ranch by settling on marriage with Tanner, or possibly losing everything by taking a chance on the exciting unknown.
The character building and plot in this story were decent but the story was missing that extra something that really makes a book resonate and stick with me after reading. It began a bit slow, and I had to skim through parts of the book that didn't keep me engaged. It really bothered me that Destry had only known Rosie for a few weeks and interacted with her only a handful of times before confessing his "love" for her and kissing her, knowing that she was engaged to someone she had known since childhood. In the same page, he then tells himself that he's not going to waste his time if she doesn't want to leave her fiance for him. Other than that one incident, Destry was an all around great guy who was always there to help Rosie out when he could. By the end of the book I felt he was able to add the zest back into her life that she had lost & that everyone gained more than they lost when she & Tanner decided to go their separate ways. I really enjoyed that this story had a strong heroine. Rosie was not only smart and sassy, but was also skilled worker and able to run an entire ranch without much help at all. She had a good heart and stood up for what she believed in, even when it meant standing up against an entire town that could essentially bring her life crashing down around her.
A must read - over and over again. Well done!
