The Mountains: Book Five
Caddy Gary Richardson hungers for the lush life of the wealthy golfers he escorts around the course at Wapiti Creek. The contrast between his tiny trailer at the edge of a mountain town and the luxurious ski and golf resort is something he’s learned to live with but not like. Gary wants the fancy condo and late-model car not just for himself but for his childhood friend turned lover, Seth Morgan. He’d settle for security for the two of them, but even that seems out of reach.
Seth is content with Gary and enough spare cash for greens fees at municipal golf courses. Going pro is beyond his means, even if he plays well enough to win on the championship resort courses. Gary would do anything to fulfill Seth’s dreams, even things he’d rather keep to himself. When an unheard of opportunity knocks, Gary can answer or resign himself to living on tips from affluent tourists.
But Seth can’t live with that answer when it means his trust has been betrayed. He has to let go and hope the man he loves will find his way home.
My View – Story:
I wanted to love this book. I have enjoyed this series from book one, Fire on the Mountain. Unfortunately, Return to the Mountain was just one book too many in the series for me. Maybe as a stand alone, I would have enjoyed it more, but trying to add it to a series that had already run its course was just a little too much for me.
I never felt any connection to or between Gary and Seth. The “strapped for cash so I will suck dick for money” scenario was just too much for me. It is cheating, especially since Seth specifically asked Gary not to do it. As soon as Gary went against Seth, I didn’t think he was good enough for Seth and wanted Seth to find a different HEA.
In the end, I powered through the book, but I wish I had ended my reading of the series with Blood on the Mountain.
My View – Narration:
Finn Sterling narrated this third person title, and he did a fabulous job. He was easy to listen to. I can safely say that his narration helped keep me in the story.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
