Bare for You (Outback Skies #3) by Lexxie Couper

Not all cowboys ride horses.

Jeremy Craig is on the cusp of being named the deputy prime minister of Australia. Which means he’s got to play his cards right and stay deep in the closet. Australia is a lot of things, but there’s no way the country is ready for a gay prime minister. So far, it’s been an easy ruse to maintain. Until he meets Ryan Taylor. Then all bets are off.

Ryan is sick of the Brokeback Mountain jokes. For starters, he’s an Australian stockman, not an American cowboy. For another, he spends most of his working days alone in a helicopter, not on the back of a horse. As Wallaby Ridge’s only contract heli-musterer, he gets to escape any small-town scorn high in the sky. He’s happy up there. Lonely, but happy. Who needs passion and wild sexual pleasure in their life when they have the boundless skies of the Outback, right?

Then Jeremy Craig climbs into his chopper…

Warning: This book may change your opinion of politicians. It also contains scorching, no-holds-barred passion between two alpha men, one with a Ryan Gosling fetish and the other with a secret deeper than the ocean. Yes, it’s that complicated.

 This  is a short story about an up and coming politician and a cowboy set in the Outback.  This story is fast moving and both characters, Jeremy and Ryan are very likable.  Jeremy the Minister of Arts is gay and buried in the closet,  Ryan is a out and proud cowboy from the bush.  Can their relationship be enough so that Jeremy can face his fears and come out?  When the offers come to become deputy prime minister of Australia, will Ryan be a one night stand, or is Jeremy ready to go the distance?

Really enjoyed the writing style, my first book by this author.
