As I said in my post down the ways it is so nice for my inner bibliophile to have an actual book in hand. Victor J. Banis has written a grand story and although I did throughly enjoy it sometimes the utopia that was the ranch was a little hard to suspend the disbelief about. But, as is suggested in the introduction, that it is a response to BBM? I’ll take this any day thanks.
Les the, foreman of the Double H ranch, is out on the range bringing in the herd when young Buck, a part Nasoni Indian cowboy rides up looking for a job. He proves himself very capable right from the get go and becomes a well liked member of the ranch through hard work, skill at roping, riding errr…horses and his sunny nature. Les is a constant lure to Buck and he does not hold back with the provocative comments and lingering looks which drives Les just a wee bit crazy. Les finds dealing with Buck’s attraction for him rather difficult, and tends to do much stomping around and surliness which made me smile.
The smexin is hot and you’re so ready for it to happen you might find yourself cheerleading on the sidelines like I did. Loved the angst, fightin words and pretty much the whole book and apart from the utopia meh, it was a cool historical m/m read. The cowboy feel of washing outside in the trough, eating biscuits and riding off into the sunset was vivd. As I was reading, I could not help but think of my absolute fav cowboys from J.L. Langley and am just a bit tempted to do some re reading. This was such a pleasure to become absorbed in and the inner covetous, geeky, bibliophile is seriously content… and maybe there was purring!
Get the goodness here.
I perused through Victor’s site last night and sent him a hi hello, as you do! Imagine my delight (and ok, fan girl squeeing) when I got a reply. I just saw this post at his site and it is definitely worth a look, an article via Publishers Weekly.
Have no idea what to read next. Just know whatever it is I must go to bed early!!
