Blurb: Nash Gallo and Luke Meyers seem like complete opposites on the surface. Nash is a city boy from Atlanta, while Luke is a rancher from rural Oklahoma. Nash is covered in tattoos and piercings, while Luke is self-conscious about his muscular, hairy body. Luke doesn’t have much sexual experience with other men, while Nash has plenty to go around.
But both men are lonely, and neither of them has ever been in love.
They also both have secrets. For Luke, it’s his shame over an affair with a local closeted and married man, something Nash accepts. Will Luke be as tolerant of what Nash is hiding—his job as a prostitute back in Georgia?
A week-long vacation on Luke’s ranch and the idyllic landscapes surrounding it gives both men the chance to relax and explore the attraction growing between them. But can the budding relationship survive secrets and small-town prejudices? As they search for the place where their lives might intersect, Nash and Luke risk far worse than broken hearts.
Review: This is listed as a western but is definitely a romance. When I first picked this book it was the title that caught me. I had not even looked at the cover, so I was thinking man in a uniform, but boy was I wrong. Then I found out that it was listed as western and almost put the book back down. Can you imagine how wrong that would have been, because this story was more then what I expected in many ways.
Nash is a hooker in Atlanta who has had a very hard life. Kicked out by his father, he did the only thing he could do to survive. However as he got older, he knew that it was going to get him killed. Especially after ending up in the hospital. He had been chatting with a sexy cowboy in Oklahoma and damn if the man didn’t invite him on down.
Luke is a rancher and pretty much vanilla. He has loved talking to Nash on the computer and couldn’t wait to meet him. He had not expected a man with a lot of tattoos but damn the man was hot. Luke had no real experience with sex, but Nash rocks his world. Then he finds out what Nash truly did. If you want to know what happens, read the book.
It was an entertaining story that caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I was kind of shocked since I have not had the pleasure to read any stories by this author before but let’s just say I had a blast with it. Now I am not sure if I would read a true western but this one definitely was hot and very yummy. There is even danger involved and some surprises for our guys.
It was a fun book and I would definitely recommend it.
