A Country Boy at Heart by MA Church

release day review

Dreamspinner Presents



Hot damn, what more could a country boy want? Bass Pro Shop is finally opening in Tennessee. Nick plans to check out all twelve indoor acres chock-full of hunting, fishing, and boating in the Memphis Pyramid on the Mississippi River.

City boy Sandy wonders yet again how he let himself get talked into attending a grand opening for a hick hunting store. His geeky heart prefers the energy of the city. Little does he know all that is going to change due to a freakishly tall glass elevator—and Nick, the high-school crush who’s suddenly taking a second look at him.

A moment of panic while trapped in the elevator leads to a spark neither expected. Getting out is the least of the challenges they’ll face if they want to try to put their differences aside and find out if love is possible between a city boy and a country boy.

States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.


This is a book virtually free of angst. It’s sweet and funny and fairly sexy.

The MCs resolve their past issues without a lot of fanfare – which was appreciated – and move into exploring today’s possibilities with open minds. They respect each other and move at a very reasonable pace, but yet the chemistry is still very evident.

I wanted to know more about Sandy and Houston? – are they a thing – it was quite mysterious!

I thought that they could have ended this on an even more solid note – it felt like these guys had been moving towards something permanent right from the start – but it was very sweet and a solid HEA.

I think this is the best book (that I’ve read) in this series so far. Recommended!

4 of 5 stars
