There are cowboy's in the story named Marty and Tripp. The story is narrated by Dorian Bane. Even though Marty and Tripp are cowboy's they still love ..Show More »each other. I didn't like Tripp at first for how he acted but once you knew why I found that I liked him. There is a lot of angst in this story but the love story is well worth reading. Dorian Bane is a wonderful narrator. I wish more books were narrated by him. I really liked this book.

I have read this series so I am already familiar with the books. This is book two, though you may be able to read as a standalone…I suggest reading in order so you get a bit more background on both Bridge and Eric. I think I could listen I Dorian Bane all day every day. His voice is so rich; a perfect cowboy voice, yet he was able to drop an octave for Marty and even do a cool accent for Eric. The regular narration is hot, but let me tell you his reading of the sex scenes will set you on fire. I think we need a fireman tossed in here with our paramedic! If you like sexy cowboys, paramedics, gay for you, an allover sweet romance with some scorching hot sex-scenes this is a must read. I highly recommend this series! I received a copy for an honest review.
Scott has been fighting his sexuality his whole life. As a result he’s been a raging homophobe as well. He’s picked fights and supported bigots. Wh..Show More »en Tripp ends up losing his career after being bashed, Scott has a bit of a wake-up-call and begins to see the light.
Cory has been picked on all his life for being slight. He’s an out and proud gay cowboy, mostly because he just can’t hide it. He’s bright, sunshiny, and full of fun.
Scott can’t help but be drawn to Cory’s enthusiasm. He wants what Cory has to offer but can’t force himself out of the closet. Cory wants Scott fiercely but won’t be kept a secret forever.
I laughed when I saw that I originally posted this book on Good Reads in September 2014. It’s taken til now and an audio book review to get me through this book. *sigh
I wanted to love this book. I really loved the first two books in the series.
LC Chase is a great writer. It’s not that there are technical difficulties with the story – it just made me so frustrated!
Scott and Cory just danced around and around and around and around one another. Will he, won’t he, I want him, I can’t have him, he’s awesome, he’s a jerk… on and on. Then there’s a bit of drama with Scott’s father. Cory finally has had enough. POW – Scott can’t live without him and they’re together.
I was disappointed by the amount of time in limbo. I was frustrated by Scott’s continual denial despite his own mind having accepted his sexuality. I didn’t like the lack of a relationship – both sexual and in person – on page between Scott and Cory. (The couple goes on a couple dates, has a couple make out sessions, and the rest of the time they’re separated. There’s very little sex and not even one “I love you” amazing HEA sex scene.) I thought the situation with Scott’s dad wasn’t handled with enough on page discussion. (It felt contrived, though I can tell it was planned all along as a plot point, it wasn’t dealt with much after the big reveal and I really think this could have been a nice way for Scott to learn more about himself and his sexuality and it could have been a nice bridge from “I can’t come out” to “There’s nothing wrong with me”.)
All in all I just didn’t care for this story much at all. (I loved Cory and was happy to see our other MCs again, but they weren’t enough to elevate the rating for me.)
Story 2 of 5 stars
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Dorian Bane has the BEST cowboy voice out there! I absolutely adore his dialog and loved listening to him voice this story. I don’t love his non-dialog narration – he tends to lilt at parts that don’t need it – so many sentences end on an up swing and that gets repetitive. But… that doesn’t hamper my enjoyment of his narration overly much and I really think cowboys are his “thang”!
