From the Publisher:
Shy, awkward, and overweight, Roland Paulson wasn’t the kind of man who attracted a lot of amorous attention. His romantic life consisted of a series of short lived flings and one night stands with other men who were just as desperate. When propositioned by a charming cowboy with the body of a god, he expected sex. He never imagined the wild ride that would follow. From the moment Dodge Bramen set eyes on the adorable red-head he wanted him. And Dodge was a man who gets what he wants. He had no trouble luring the guy into his bed, but keeping him there was a different story. Deep kept secrets and unexpected discoveries could either shatter their bond or break it
Bull by Mathilde Watson was tale of bonding between an old bull and an average hotel manager. Bull was well written and emotional. I love reading a story that connects to me on a personal. I felt like the main characters were realistic and their concerns about themselves are relatable to everyday folks. I am glad that the author included a main character that was not physically perfect and I am glad she used the other main character to show that when there is love, appearance is meaningless. I felt connect to Roland and Dodge. I found it cute when Dodge was trying to court Roland and I hurt when the misunderstanding between the men causes unnecessary grief and heartache. I was elated when they finally bonded and got their HEA. Ms. Watson did an excellent job of writing a tale that I enjoyed not only for its writing style and story line, but for its connection to me personally. I loved it!
In addition, it is not often that I am truly surprised by a plot twist these days, but Ms. Watson accomplished that easily. From reading the blurb and seeing the theme of the anthology it was a part of, I figured BULL would be another cowboy love story. And it was and it was a great story. However, I was pleasantly shocked when I discovered there was more to it than a simple cowboy tale. In hindsight, there were clues throughout the story, though they were cleverly disguised. I love when an author can catch me off guard. It was so wonderful to read something that did not follow the typical mold and to realize that I could not predict all of the nuances of this story.
I recommend Bull by Mathilde Watson to everyone. It is fun, sad, loving, HOT, surprising, and so much more. I have now read this several times and I will continue to read this again and again. When will Corralling Nature #2 be released?
