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.
My View – Story:
I enjoyed this story. It was very heartwarming and left me feeling all gooey inside when the men declared their forever love. I love stories about reclusive men who are shy and need a bit of a self-esteem boost. Jared fits that image well. I also like to see the reformed bad boy and Lucas fills that slot.
However, I wished for more from this story. Other than his initial sour attitude, I didn’t really get the bad boy vibe from Lucas. His transformation happened very quickly and all too soon, the men were in love and talking about forever. There were a few indications of his petulant, childish ways, but I would have liked there to have been a bit more to the story. More interaction between the men outside of the bedroom that made the quick love a bit more meaningful.
Even though I wish there was more, I enjoyed this love story and the happy feeling it left me with at the end.
My View – Narration:
Paul Morey, as always, did a great job with the narration. His voice is smooth and easy to listen to.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
