Inside and outside the rodeo arena, Jeff Stratton and Clay Harris are rivals with tempers worse than the bulls they ride. So Clay is shocked when Jeff taps that wild energy and kisses him, sparking an undeniable urge for more of each others’ bodies. But when they discover they might want more than casual sex between competitions, Clay’s greatest fear is recognized: He is scared of being identified as gay. He’ll have to cowboy up if he hopes to hang on to Jeff on the circuit of love
My View – Story:
This book seemed a little rushed to me and then ended abruptly and I was left feeling as though I didn’t get the whole story.
Jeff and Clay are rodeo riders and are both at the top of their game leaving them fighting it out for first prize as the season progresses. They don’t get along although they haven’t tried to be friends, they seem to ruffle each other’s feathers and are each a little jealous of the other. They even argue with each other over which woman they are going to bed with for the night.
When tempers fray once again instead of the usual verbal sparring or shoving they end up kissing each other frantically. What happens when two straight boys who are enemies end up kissing? They panic, blame each other and use their avoidance skills.
Clay is much better at avoidance and denial than Jeff. He is a cowboy, a rodeo rider and he worries about what his family would say so there is just no way he can be gay. Jeff, for his part, seems more resigned to his feelings and much more open to exploring how the other man makes him feel.
As much as they try to stay away from each other neither seems able to put the brakes on. When they are together they are hot and passionate but there is a strain on becoming friends outside of the bedroom for fear of what their fellow riders will think.
It ended for me without any real closure. For all of their competitiveness you don’t find out who wins the rodeo and you are left without knowing what happens after the season finished. Do they make the leap and become a couple or was it a fling and at the end of the season they headed home to the respective lives?
My View – Narration:
Paul Morey is very easy to listen to and did a great job narrating this story.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
