Sequel to Inherit the Sky

Lang Downs: Book Two

Twenty-year-old Chris Simms is barely keeping his head above water. After losing his mother and his home, he struggles to provide for himself and his brother. When homophobes attack him, he thinks his life is over, but then he's rescued by jackaroos from a nearby sheep station. He's as stunned to be offered a job there as he is to discover both the station owner and foreman are gay.

For Chris, Lang Downs is a dream - one that only gets better when Chris realizes the jackaroo he's crushing on, Jesse Harris, is gay and amenable to a fling. Everything goes well until Chris realizes he's falling for Jesse a lot harder than allowed by their deal.

Jesse is a drifter who moves from station to station, never looking for anything permanent. Convinced Chris is too young and fragile for a real relationship, he sets rules to keep things casual. Watching the station owner and his foreman together makes Jesse wonder if there are benefits to settling down, but when he realizes how Chris feels about him, he panics. He and Chris will have to decide if a try for happiness is worth the risk before the end of the season tears them apart.

    "A true-to-form second installment"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed how Jesse and Macklin are each trying to overcome fears regarding commitment in different ways, and each have to find their own answers.


    What does William James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accents of the characters. Usually when I read a book where the characters speak in a foreign accent, their voices default to American in my head. James definitely gets the Aussie accent right. I really hope James narrates the rest of the series, because it's one I'd like to own.

    "Enjoying this series"

    The best thing about this book, aside from the narrator, it the continuation of Caine and Macklin's story from book one. Although Chris and Jesse's story is sweet and worth a listen, I really enjoyed seeing the MC from Book 1 continue their journey. I'd even say it is as prevalent as the MC in this book. Again the narrator does a great job. Worth a credit. But now I have to switch to the written book as Books 3 & 4 are not on Audible yet.

    "Nice 3rd instalment."

    A great follow up on the first two books. The story of Macklin and Caine continue with the addition of Chris and Jesse.
    I'm enjoying the Lang Downs series and will probably buy the next book soon.
