Publication Date & Length: October 31, 2015 – 152 pgs
Rusty Briggs knows his chance of finding a man while living outside of Sweetwater, Texas are slim to none. Few know about his little secret, but his ranch hands have run out on him and the folks in town aren’t as hospitable as they were before the incident. He’s resigned himself to the fact that working his ranch will have to be enough or he will need to sell and move to the big city…that is until he meets Trent Anderson.
On the outside Trent appears to be a man with full access to silver spoons and caviar dreams, but his parents cut him off and tossed him out once they discovered he was gay. After living on the street, selling himself, then ending up in a destructive relationship, Trent pulled his life together and came out on top, all by using his compassion and intelligence—or so Trent thinks. Recently, Trent’s grandfather passed away and left him his ranch, as long as he meets a few conditions, like living in Texas for ninety days. But Trent’s secret benefactor, Reed, is dissatisfied that Trent isn’t living in Atlanta and wants him back. The only issue for Reed is that Trent is involved with Rusty.
Money, greed, lust, and power work to keep Rusty and Trent apart. They are forced to trust each other when life falls apart, but can they actually become close enough in ninety days to create a solid, trusting relationship, or will old relationships come between them?
This was a good romance story. I liked how the story had Rusty and Trent meet. Rusty just being neighborly to the new guy and Trent being surprised Rusty was gay. I liked that they spent time together until declaring their love for each other.
The conflict with Trent’s friend Reed adds tension to their relationship along with a misunderstanding with a friend of Rusty’s. Both issues add a nice twist to the story.
This was a very nice story and I would recommend reading this book.
This was a short sweet love story between Rusty and Trent. Rusty works alone on his farm because everyone left when they found out he was gay. Trent’s grandfather left him his ranch with a catch. There was a little drama but not much. This book was more of a feel good book, not something that would get you all hot and bothered. It was sweet and not very long, I guess was expecting more drama or angst but not a bad M/M romance book.
Writing is Sara’s life. The stories fight to get out, often leaving her working on four or five books at once. She can’t help but write. Along with her writing addiction she has a coffee addiction. Some nights, the only reason she stops writing and goes to sleep is for the fresh brewed coffee in the morning.
Sara enjoys writing twisted tales of passion, anger, and love with a good healthy dose of lust thrown in for fun. Almost a quarter of a century ago Sara met her lover, falling for him after knowing him for ten minutes. Sara’s passion for him comes out in her stories, mixing with her passion for life, love, and good times, flowing onto the page and becoming tales from the heart.
