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.
I really enjoyed this book. It was nice having two men that was worlds apart in the way they live their lives and they way they dealt with the things that handed them, come together to find what they both wanted mostbin life, love and acceptance.
Nash has a crap of a life. Getting thrown out of his homestead the age of 15 years old he did what he had to in order to survive. He became a rent boy in Atlanta. Some of his tricks weren’t so bad but then others made up for that by being horrible. Recently he ended up in the hospital because a truck beat him pretty badly.
The highlight lately of his days has been talking on the computer to Luke, a cowboy from Oklahoma that he has gotten to know over the computer. The two men decide that Nash needs to come for a vacation and stay with Luke.
Luke lives in a small town that knows he is gay but not all accept it. For the most part he has only been in one relationship and that relationship was toxic because Bobby was married and cheating on his wife with Luke. Luke finally got out of the situation but he still sees Bobby constantly around town.
Do when Nash comes to see Luke, both men are excited and cannot wait to get to know each other better. What started off as a friendship quickly turns into more between them but they both have secrets and some secrets may not be easy to get over.
When these secrets come to light it will put a rift between them and they may not be able to overcome the rift. When a fire breaks out and a crazy neighbor tries to kill Nash, will Luke stand beside Nash after the fall out or will he let the secrets come between them.
This was a wonderful read with new love, secrets, a wild fire, an ex that won’t go away, and a crazy gun toting neighbor. In other words there is always something crazy going on. Not to mention these two men love to eat. And we cannot forget about the dog, a great unexpected addition to Nash and Luke and their relationship. I truly enjoyed this read and I will definitely recommend it to others.
