Wealthy, attractive Lucas Reika treats life like a party, moving from bar to bar and man to man. Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father's demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father's money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar.
Quiet, hard-working Jared McFarland loves his farm on the outskirts of Hope, Arizona, but he aches to have someone to come home to at the end of the day. Jared agrees to take in his longtime crush as a favor. But when Lucas invades his heart in addition to his space, Jared has to decide how much of himself he's willing to risk and figure out if he can offer Lucas enough to keep him after his father's punishment is over
I was given this book by Cardeno C for my honest opinion.
Point #1 I LURVE me some cowboys, or in the case organic produce grower. This was my first CC book but it will not be my last, this is a short novella that grew me in about page 1. Point #2 I LURVE pushy/mouthy bottoms.
And I was given that 10 ten-fold with smart ass Lucas, (bless poor Jared's heart). Rich boy Lucas has everything a young man could want, or so he thinks..... Jared, Jared, Jared......sees himself alone, scarred, hard working and so dedicated to the people around him. His back story brought me to tears just imagining a town pulling together for safe and well -being of a teenage boy. My only complaint is that a really did not want it to end.
I give this 4.5 stars!
