5 Stars for The Shearing Gun by Renae Kaye #MM #Romance


Title: The Shearing Gun
Author Name & Publisher: Renae Kaye (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: September 19, 2014 – 214 pgs


At twenty-five, Hank owns a small parcel of land in Australia’s rural southwest where he supplements his income from the property with seasonal shearing. Hank is a “shearing gun”—an ace shearer able to shear large numbers of sheep in a single day. His own father kicked him out when his sexuality was revealed, and since no one would ever hire a gay shearer, Hank has remained firmly closeted ever since.
Elliot is the newbie doctor in town—city-born and somewhat shell-shocked from his transplant to the country. When a football injury brings Hank to Elliot’s attention, an inappropriate sexual glance and the stuttered apology afterward kickstarts their friendship. Romance and love soon blossom, but it’s hard for either of them to hope for anything permanent. As if the constant threat of being caught isn’t enough, Elliot’s contract runs out after only a year.

Review FiveStars

What can I say about this book other then this book was so good!!!
Hank is a gay man trying to hide that he is in Australia’s Rural southwest.  He has is own farm and is a sheep shearer, which with that kind of work is were his fear of being found out stems from.  He does not want to lose his job and friends which is his greatest fear.  He was doing a good job of it too until he meets Elliot the new doctor in his town.  He soon realizes he is attracted to Elliot, which in time steadily moves to love.
Elliot what can I say about him other then he was such a sweetheart who just wants to help people and get closer to Hank.
This book has low angst but so much sweet when it comes to the two of them building as a couple.  There are also some funny moments and some moments where you hold your breath hoping everything is okay.
Hank’s family slowly starts to accept him as he is and he will soon find out that all his fear of his town finding out may be for not.
I really loved this book and would definitely recommend it!

Renae Kaye is a lover and hoarder of books who thinks libraries are devilish places because they make you give the books back. She consumed her first adult romance book at the tender age of thirteen and hasn’t stopped since. After years – and thousands of stories! – of not having book characters do what she wants, she decided she would write her own novel and found the characters still didn’t do what she wanted. It hasn’t stopped her though. She believes that maybe one day the world will create a perfect couple – and it will be the most boring story ever. So until then she is stuck with quirky, snarky and imperfect characters who just want their story told.

Renae lives in Perth, Western Australia and writes in five minute snatches between the demands of two kids, a forbearing husband, too many pets, too much housework and her beloved veggie garden. She is a survivor of being the youngest in a large family and believes that laughter (and a good book) can cure anything.
