Connor’s To-Do List:
• Learn to accept my future on the family farm
• Be social, to a degree
• Make a secret bucket list
• Have a real conversation with Travis Bradford

Travis’s To-Do List:
• Get into my top law school
• Get the hell out of Elkville, Oklahoma
• Stay focused on my dreams and goals—no crushes, no distractions
• Get spanked by hot and perfectly fussy farm boy, Connor Blume

Travis and Connor do not like each other, but after being paired together in Entomology 101, their mutual hostility explodes into secret after-class hookups and unexpected feelings. With graduation looming near and their careers taking them in different directions, they’ll have to decide if a future together is worth adjusting their to-do lists and letting go of their carefully laid plans.

This was the very best surprise. This is a new to me author and I’m hooked.

Connor has some OCD issues mingled with anxiety, but he’s doing ok. He’s almost done with college and he has plans. He’s taking over his family farm, it’s all settled. It’s fine that it isn’t what he wants because it’s always been the plan and he lives for plans. Only Travis was never part of the plan…

Travis also has a plan. Finish this last semester of college and get the hell out of town. He’ll do anything to get gone, even if that means breaking his own heart in the process. He’s made plans before and he got screwed and he’s not going to let anything stop him this time.

Erin McLellan has flayed me open. Gah. I’m not one with my feelings, but she managed to pull every single one of them out and play a ballad with them. I laughed, teared up, wanted to throw things, and fell in love.

Told from alternating POV’s, we got a peek inside both Travis and Connor’s thoughts and spent time organizing, learning farming, spanking, literature, bugs, family and beautifully whispered endearments.

Honestly, this was a stellar read, perfectly written and I did not want it to end. I can’t wait to read more from this author in the future.

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
