    4 solid Destry loving stars!!!! Another great read from Shey Stahl!!! This book is a breathe of fresh air with her old style writing if sports and talking about it in the beginning of every chapter! This book starts off kind of slow, picks up really well, has hot sex, has the retarder heroine moment like most books tend to have, a great 90-95% and then the dreaded cliffhanger!!! :) Tallan wants to loose weight for an old high school boyfriend who is now a rock star, and she hires HWC Destry Stone. 4 solid Destry loving stars!!!!

Yikes!!! Just that name is hot! :) This story is a great story that follows a hurt, damaged hero that you want to keep learning more and more about! The other characters in this book were just as great, but my favorite is Jared! Best best friend/brother figure a girl could ask for. :) Shey Stahl wrote one of my favorite series of all time with ROTE. This story isn't as great as that, but it is still great! I can't wait until Feb to see what the next part of the story is.

    I really enjoyed this book! The heroine is witty and very funny and while I hated the hero at first, I warmed up to him after he got that stick out of his ass. This would be at least, a 4 star read if it wasn't for the whole "real women have curves crap" in it. That pissed me off. All women are real. End of. I really enjoyed this book!

But, after I finished this book, my brain and my vagina had a heart to heart. It was decided that fuck it, I’ll be a feminist tomorrow. I think Tallan said it best: “… my pussy wanted to be friends with Destry. Good friends. She didn’t care if he was a dick.” Destry Stone is one HOT alpha. The things he said and did sent my confused little heart (the one down below) aflutter. The sex scenes in this book were scorching – yup,hot enough to burn away any notions I had about hating this guy on principle. GIVE. ME.DESTRY Tallan as a character was a complete hot mess. I loved her. She was easily relatable and the situations she gets herself in and her inner monologue was hilarious! I was suffering from whiplash during the first part of this book going between WTF and turned but after about 53% I got really invested in their story. I was surprised by how emotional I got during the plot twists and how beautiful this story turned out to be. I fell in love with the broken Destry. It’s true love this time. No more book boyfriends for me. No siree. I promise this time it’s real.

    OMFG, This must be one of my fave reads of 2015. The story was beautiful, the characterization insightful, the pacing exciting and the romance factor off the charts! I love how the main female character, Tallan (what an original name btw!! Or maybe it's because I'm Greek and we don't have that kind of names), was an everyday girl.... Working, hanging out with her friends, eating and drinking like a real person and not like a prude as in a lot of novels... And Destry (when I hear that name I think of OMFG, This must be one of my fave reads of 2015.

Working, hanging out with her friends, eating and drinking like a real person and not like a prude as in a lot of novels... And Destry (when I hear that name I think of pastry... I don' know why, maybe it's because he also has the "yum" factor), is a gutsy and driven male lead! Honestly I adored how the story appeared simple but was multi-layered and how we got to peel off the surface and see into the characters' souls, how bitter Destry was, how self-conscious Tallan was and how through their strained (at least in the beginning) relationship they moved forward and matured and ultimately found their happiness together.... Only they didn't actually find it, because the end was bloody unexpected and made my heart stop. Shey Stahl must be evil, because now I have to go get myself the next book!! ^_^ Silas was a very real character. I didn't like him, but that doesn't make him any less of a "very real feeling" character.. He was exactly how I imagined a spoiled rock star would be, since he rose to stardom so suddenly and probably before he actually was mature enough to avoid all the "traps" and the lure of the easy life. This would probably be a 5 star, but I only took out one star because the voice of the protagonist kinda surprised me and irked me, at first... I thought it was too conversational and ...don't know, hard to explain, but I ,eventually, got to love it... So i will probably turn the rating into 5 stars in a little while...

Really idiot? Why did you call him then? Story ruined more. Then he takes you to his house after he saves her and she acts self righteous and pouty because he is angry and she hasn't explained herself but she still thinks he should read her stupid article that she never should have written without his permission? Again idiot. Story now ruined AND annoying. Sorry but the author takes what had promise and turns it into a joke.

    Shey Stahl...is a new author for me. I can say that I liked the work. I really did. The writing of an author either works for you or it doesn't. There's no in-between. The plot was good. Though an old school plot but still good. The treatment of characters was good and the execution was also pretty on the spot. I can say that I liked Destry. At least he was not confused about what he felt for whom. But I cannot say the same for Tallan. Which was actually the point of the plot but still.

My only problem is that I dont think there should've been other parts of the book or not. So I am not sure whether I will read the sequel or not but I will definitely try a standalone, if there is any, by this author.

    I love, love, love the sport of boxing . That being said, when I saw Shey Stahl was writing a boxing romance I had to read it !!! Omg Destry is all Alpha male, and he's so sexy and a major asshole at first. Tallan who plays the heroine is pure comic relief, I could relate to her because she surrounds herself with mostly males with the exception of her best friend Catie. She plays such a strong character, and the chemistry between Tallan and Destry is Sooo hot !!This is a definite must read and I I love, love, love the sport of boxing .

    Three pages into this book and I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. Tallan is just to funny! Her character is refreshing and totally relatable . Her roommate Jared is the honest in your face, tell it like it is protective friend. Destrey is the trainer who agrees to help her lose the weight and get her into shape. He is a hard *ss that doesn't take any crap! If anything he seems kind of annoyed with Tallan at first. Although this book was funny it has its serious and intense moments.

    For the love of god would someone please edit this before publishing?! What the hell? Such a good story but let down by the terrible terrible writing, not just grammar but repetitive words/ lines and parts of sentences that made absolutely no sense as if the author lost her train of thought and kept going with something else. Very disappointing. I kept reading as the story had me hooked but it was definitely a struggle. If this was revised and edited properly i would absolutely recommend it.

    I can’t give this book more than 3 stars because the writing is horrific! I’m not sure anyone edited this book at all? And when the big revelation comes she literally has to have a character spell it out because she did not lead up to the build at all! That being said I really like Tallan and Destry’s characters (despite his name like really Destry?). Jared is also a great secondary character although I kind of wish he’d admit he’s in love with Tallan but I doubt that is how it’s headed.

Anyway, I’ll definitely read the second book since the first ended on such a cliffhanger and despite the horrific writing I still like the characters. I’d only recommend it to you if you like the synopsis, other than that there are better (well written) romance novels you could read.

    I’m sorry but the ending of this book fell completely flat. The “reconciliation” of the main characters felt rushed and completely unrealistic. Nearly nothing was explained and in the heroine’s twisted imagination, she concludes that she’s nearly blameless. Nothing is her fault. I just felt very confused by the entire ending. Questions were left unanswered as far as the female antagonist was concerned. It just all felt so... You know when you eat a good taco but then you get to the end and all of I’m sorry but the ending of this book fell completely flat.

    Have you ever read a book and then didn't know exactly how to review it? Well, welcome to my world right now. This book was more than what I expected based on the blurb. Tallan was not your typical female lead, but is a typical female at that age. They're just not normally written that way. Most of us weigh considerably more when we graduate college than when we graduated high school. Chalk it up to a final growth spurt and alcohol.

This book was more than what I expected based on the blurb. Tallan was not your typical female lead, but is a typical female at that age. They're just not normally written that way. Most of us weigh considerably more when we graduate college than when we graduated high school. Chalk it up to a final growth spurt and alcohol. When Tallan gets a call out of the blue from her high school sweetheart, Silas (who is now a rock star), she is completely self-conscious about that weight gain from when she was 18. She agrees to meet him in 6 weeks when he's in town on tour. In order to lose the 20 pounds she gained since high school, she hires a personal trainer. The trainer more or less fell into her lap. He's a boxer - actually a champion fighter doing some training on the side. Along the way, we get a lot of insight into Tallon, how she thinks, what she's feeling and all of the confusion that goes along with it. I liked her so much because she's not the typical girly girl. Her roommate is her best friend and HE is a cop. She starts working out in order to look good for Silas, but as time passes she realizes that she's really doing it for herself. She has an enormous amount of personal growth in the 6 weeks that she trains. I thoroughly enjoyed the transformation within her character and the connection that sparked with her trainer, Destry. They had nowhere near a typical romance, but that spark ignited into one heck of a firestorm. Their passion leapt off of the pages, and I had a very difficult time putting this book down. Tallon is also a writer. She writes articles on everything and anything she can get paid for. An old friend asks her to write a story about Destry - did he throw the championship fight, why has he stepped out of the spotlight, etc. Destry refuses to grant interviews since that fight. At first, she refuses, but is eventually manipulated into agreeing to write it. She never tells Destry about the article she's been commissioned to write about him. We all know this is going to blow up in her face later on, so this cannot possibly be considered a spoiler by any stretch of the imagination. The way it unfolds, however, is something you need to read to find out - along with the underlying conspiracy about attaining said article. I would highly recommend this read despite my wanting to slap Shey Stahl for the final sentence in this book. Yes, there was copious amounts of swearing on my part. "Technically" it's a cliff sentence, but there is also plenty of closure for the story line that we're not left hanging in regard to Tallan and Destry's relationship. I will definitely be picking up the next book when it comes out.

    OH. MY. GOODNESS. I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS BOOK ENDED THE WAY IT DID. I'm beyond desperate to read the next book in the series, because I LOVED THIS BOOK. It's been a long time since I've read a book in one sitting overnight, and I devoured this book in hours. It was humorous, clever, passionate and lovable. I literally laughed out loud over and over again because of how awesome Tallen was. She's one of my top favorite heroines of all time for sure. Not only was she extremely relatable, but she was OH.

I loved, loved, loved Shey Stahl's writing-there was such chemistry between Destry and Tallen it was insane. Even more great than the crazy chemistry was the emotional bond the two developed, and how they were able to overcome their issues in a way that was uniquely them. I even laughed during their most heated arguements because of how cleverly it was written and because even then, Tallen remained her hilarious self. I loved every second of this book, and can't wait to get started on the next one in the series.

Or is her heart still with Silas her high school love? This is an amazing book, but is a major cliffy. I am not fond of cliffy's. This book is a definite must read!! Cannot wait for book two because I have to know what happens.

The way this girl spoke, thought and acted about her weight, her past coming to visit her present, her drooling over her trainer (because hello?

    ***4 GOLDEN STARS*** I really enjoyed this book! I loved Destry, everything about him, from his brooding demeanour and his heavy-wieght boxing - there was just so much to read about him! On the other hand Tallan annoyed me at times within this book. The entire idea of hiring a personal trainer to lose 20 pounds for a guy? that kinda pissed me off because no girl should lower her self esteem like that and then when she was snooping around and writing the article on Destry? Yep, a big no no again, ***4 GOLDEN STARS*** I really enjoyed this book!

The relationship between himself and Tallan was so dang cute! and he is such a sweetheart and all protective, and I am really intrigued now to keep reading after that bombshell of an ending!

    I really enjoyed this book and the attitude behind the writing for Tallan. I giggled along with some of the things she was thinking and saying, which says a lot since I usually don't do more than smile with the characters. I enjoyed the hate you/lust after you dance between Tallan and Destry...especially those steamy scenes! I didn't read reviews on this prior to starting, so I was caught off guard with the cliffy ending. I found myself missing Tallan's sparky attitude around 3/4 of the way thro I really enjoyed this book and the attitude behind the writing for Tallan.

I found myself missing Tallan's sparky attitude around 3/4 of the way through, but still enjoyed this single POV story. Some scenes needed editing with continuity and repeating lines, which caused slow downs when rereading so I could follow. Glad I took a chance with a new author and can't wait to see how this story ends.

    I really thought this book had great potential. It started out really great but then it just kind of died out at the end. I think Tallan is pretty funny and sarcastic and I think Destry is pretty hot & sexy. He wears his heart on his sleeve and I love his honesty. I didn't really get how they could fall in love so quickly but then again, it happens but for me I just felt pretty disconnected. I felt like I didn't get to see their relationship on a deeper level and I was a little disappointed but I really thought this book had great potential.

I felt like I didn't get to see their relationship on a deeper level and I was a little disappointed but perhaps it will show through in the next book. However I wasn't really all impressed with this book so I highly doubt I'll ever get to find out. This is still a good read though and I would recommend for everyone to give it a chance unfortunately its just something I'm not interested in.

    An enjoyable read but I was thrown off at some parts. First of all, the heroine was likeable but annoying at the same time. Yes, that's very possible. She's hung up on her first love but there is no real description of how great this love really was. Dude left her after grad and broke up with a phone call. And your still pining for this douche??? I was waiting for her to find some self-respect. She didn't. Reality bites. It was pushed down her throat and she had to swallow it.

Then she has an epiphany! She finally gets that she's better off. Duh! I gave this book a 4 because of Destry. His story interests me and I can't wait to see more of him in book 2. Hopefully Tallan isn't so clueless.

    This book really caught me off guard. I was not expecting to like it as much as I did. But this author had me from the start with how real and funny Tallan is right from the beginning. Everything about her is so real it is like you are listening to your best friend tell you a story. She has her hang ups over her body, her first love, and constantly has her mind in the gutter. Add a brooding Destry, an arrogant ex-boyfriend/rock star, and a brotherly roommate/best friend, what else can you ask fo This book really caught me off guard.
