There’s nothing like a fresh start, and for Randy, still nursing wounds left by a cheating ex and harboring a deep mistrust for all things corporate, Wolf, Wyoming seems like the perfect place to start over. Secluded, quiet, and self-sufficient, Wolf is bound to not only inspire, but to bring Randy the peace he needs. The view’s not bad, either.
Vaughn O’Connell and his family are Randy’s only neighbors for miles, and while Randy knows it’s somewhat unlikely that a man with three kids is gay, it doesn’t hurt to look. When a misunderstanding brings Randy face to face with both Vaughn and his eighteen year old son, Lyle, Randy’s not sure what to feel about either of them.
But things are not what they appear in Wolf, and the closer Randy gets, the stranger the O’Connell family seems…
I liked the concept of the story and how it was developed, but I felt like there was no real connection, no real chemistry, between the characters. The author at the beginning had me wondering if the MC’s were going to be Lyle and Randy instead of Randy and Vaughn. There were some details on the story that got lost somewhere and I was left with more questions than answers. I could have used a little more details on the situation with Lyle, and what is it that makes one of them change.
The story was developed over a couple months period (not in just a few days and it was insta love) and the characters took their time getting to know each other (although I would have liked for them to start fooling around a bit earlier in the story).
As for the ending I loved how Lyle had help with his changes, someone other than his dad (I didn’t saw that one going anywhere good) and that he was able to get past his dominant issues. That last scene brought a few tears in my eyes and that is one of the things I like on my reads (I would just have liked for there to be a few more scenes like that). And the editing? Just a few things here and there that are most probably going to be solved by release day, nothing mayor.
