Publisher's Summary

For Josh Brooks, it's a summer of wishes come true. First he gets his dream horse from a rival trainer. Then his brother's Army Ranger buddy, Dane Keller, comes to work on the ranch and Josh meets his dream lover too. Dane is hot, competent, and fresh out of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Everything would be perfect-except nobody knows Josh and Dane are gay.

All Dane wants is a quiet life in a less claustrophobic closet and a ranch job where he can earn a living. But when his best friend's little brother, the one who wrote the letters that kept their spirits up in Afghanistan, turns out to have grown up in all the right ways, Dane can't help wanting more despite his fear of commitment.

While Dane and Josh are busy trying - and failing - to keep their hands to themselves, someone else is watching, biding his time. Then he strikes, first at Josh and then at the prized horse. When all of their secrets and fears are exposed, Dane is determined to protect Josh, even if it means leaving him behind.

    Story
    "Cheesy, and unimaginative."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure, the actual blue print of the story was good, but the follow through was not well executed. It is a romance book trying to be a BDSM book.


    What was most disappointing about Lisa M. Owens’s story?

    It was hard to like either characters, Josh is a door mat and Dane is this messed up Dom character. I found the fact that Dane kept referring to Josh as "cowboy" very irritating. The sex scenes were interesting, but violent and almost uncomfortable. It was missing some kind of conversation, where Josh and Dane discussed the intensity that was comfortable for both of them. You just felt like Dane was steam rolling over Josh, and despite Josh's protest, he always enjoyed it in the end. Not sure I liked the message there. Too borderline non-consensual for me, sex should not be all about one partners pleasure.


    Have you listened to any of John Solo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator was actually good, it was just hard to appreciate him, when the story was irritating me.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It has a basic outline, that is o.k. I just found the build up of the characters that were a forceful male and defenseless female.
