Publisher's Summary

My heart's about to get wrangled in Chad's wicked little game. 

I left behind my countryside hometown of Spruce, Texas and my teenage tormentor Chad Landry to start over, pursue a career, and make a new name for myself. 

Fast forward 10 years, and I'm back in Spruce for my high school reunion to confront my past and to face the boy who made my teen years hell. I'm no longer the vulnerable teenager I once was, and I'll guarantee you this: Chad won't have any power over me. 

But all the mental preparation in the world couldn't possibly prepare me for the sight of the hot, gorgeous, and hunky rancher that Chad has become, nor the secret he's been waiting 10 long years to tell me. 

Chad's got things to say. And I've got a score to settle. 

Someone's poor little heart is about to get wrangled in a game it is sure to lose.

Contains mature themes.

Heart-warming story

The story was filled with realistic characters and plausible plot. Cross-over Characters from other books by Darryl Banner give it a warm, small-town feel with people you would like to know.

Excellent Series!

Daryl Banner will bring you into the unique world of Spruce where there's hope for a better future. Each story builds somewhat on the last and I look forward to reading more of his work. The narrator also brings the characters to life in a way that is relatable and emotionally real. If you haven't read a gay romance series yet, start with this one! Two thumbs up!

Absolute Wonder

I laughed, I cried, I hoped, I was in suspense. I didn’t want this story to end. I got so invested in the story I listened to it in 2 days. Every spare minute I got had it playing. Already downloaded my next book by this author!

uggggggghhhhhh 😡😔

I really had high expectations for this book, and the narrator did an excellent job, but I DNF at maybe 85%? I am so close to finishing but I just can't handle anymore of the MC; he is almost perfect and has "teaching" moments with everyone. The two MCs also have communication issues and seem almost unequal. Sadly, the way the story unfurled was just supremely unsatisfying for me and what I enjoy in a romance.

Do yourself a favor and read the whole series

This writer is so good. I kept smiling throughout the book. The characters are great! Their characters are layered, but not perfect. The characters have their many sides, short comings, and lovability. This is the fourth book in this series. The series as a whole is really great. The first book and this one are my favorites, but again I love this series. I hope this author continues in this series, and other books!!!

another hit book in the series!

canner has done it again with this nostalgic look into our collective queer past.

bringing back those memories both tender and painful and bringing it into this world of love, acceptance and asking is to reconcile and search ourselves for our own truth.

the bonus and shout out to all relationships having there own rules, expectations, and limitations was particularly strong and appreciated.

A great read, a fun sassy story, and (for this reader) Chad takes tge hottest man in Spruce award. really enjoyed it.

Another wonderful visit to Spruce Texas

ALL of the books in the Spruce Texas Series are simply AMAZING. Very Highly Recommended. Daryl Banner is my new favorite author. I wish I could move to Spruce Texas. I would gladly leave today. If you want a great story with just the right amount of hot steamy sex then you need to listen to all of the books in the Spruce Texas Series. 5 STARS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 They deserve 5 MILLION STARS in my opinion. If you read complaints in other reviews that there is too much of something. Or not enough of something else. Of if something is too long or not long enough. Don't believe them I think all of these books have the right amount of everything. The best books I have ever read or listened to. Some people don't like that characters from previous books appear as characters in later books. But I think it makes the stories more awesome. Because then you get to find out about some of your favorite characters from earlier books. I hope there will be more books in this series. If there is you can GUARANTEE I will get every single one of them. Okay I done rambling on about how good these books are. Just go and read them for yourself. All 5 of them that are out so far. I promise you will not regret it one bit. Thank you Daryl Banner for my trip to meet and fall I love with all of the wonderful people of Spruce Texas

Lance’s understandable anger made this heavy-going

Lance Goodwin left Spruce, Texas as soon as he finished high school having been systematically bullied by Chad Landry and his friends throughout. It’s the 10-yr high school reunion and Lance has come back with revenge in his heart to flaunt his success as an LA fashion designer. When Chad seeks Lance out to try and mend fences, Lance can’t believe the secret Chad shares with him. This was harder to love than previous books in the series: bullying stories are important but uncomfortable and Lance, understandably still angry and neurotic, is not a sympathic character as he spreads his resentment far and wide. There’s a fine line between sassy and bitchy, and Lance’s ungraciousness crosses the line and that weighs down the story, which is only told from his POV. It’s a tall order for Chad to expect quick forgiveness and Lance actually is quite gracious in this regard - I wasn’t sure I was convinced by their dynamic. What I found really weird was Chad’s continued reluctance to come out in a town which has been overwhelmingly supportive of gay people. He said he couldn’t stand gossip about him but he constantly stoked that speculation by not coming out - if he’d have ripped the bandage off, the town would have moved on quickly. Audio narrator Chris Chambers voiced Lance well, but I missed the dual narration of the previous audios.

Wanted to slap Lance for most of the book

Well done to the writer and narration. The writer paints a glorious picture of the scenes and characters. So much so I feel total distain for the whiny self obsessed Lance. What a gnarly bitter queen. and despite the obvious fantasy aspects of the book, he is reflective of so many bully impacted people in reality. Get over it and grow up I say to myself as I listen. However what I loved the most was that the writer (coupled with thoughtful narration) evoked such emotion. Clever.
