Book Description

Sometimes there are only two choices. Love…or leave.

Jacob James falls for Rodney the moment the New York City cop crash lands into his far-too-predictable ranch life. The sexy city slicker is everything a lonely Wyoming cowboy could ever dream of. When Rodney is shot in the line of duty, however, their off-the-charts attraction turns unexpectedly cool. Jacob offers the only thing he has left—friendship.

All Rodney can think about—besides his cowboy lover—is getting back to his job. But what good is a cop who can’t fire a gun? While he’s grateful for Jacob’s support through months of grueling physical therapy, how can he offer anything more when his own future is so uncertain?

When he’s finally cleared to return to work in New York, Rodney thought it would be the happiest day of his life. Except reaching his goal means leaving Jacob behind…and a future he never thought he wanted. Until now…

Warning: New York City cop meets Wyoming cowboy. Come on. You know that’s going to be hot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another of Mari Carr's greatness!!! May 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
To say I'm a Mari Carr fan would be an understatement. This book was just another work of art by her. I have loved Jacob since book one, and Rodney grabbed my heart in the second book! This book opens up with Rodney being released from his physical therapist. He can now go back to New York and be a cop again, BUT he has these strong feelings for Jake that he can't ignore. Jake has decided he is tired of playing it safe, and he is going to get his man, even if it is just for the night. And ohh what a night it is!! Rodney's dominate side calls to him on a deep level. Can they have a future? Will they miss out on a chance at love because of distance?? I don't know what it is about a M/M book that I love, but they almost seem sexier! This one is smoking hot!! Make sure you have a fan, man, and or lots of batteries to read this one. Highly recommend this book and series!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Ending to an Amazing Series! May 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this story! Read alone, it was a great m/m romance, especially as a first attempt by the author. I would have thought she had written this genre before! As the 3rd and final book in the series, this was even better. Seeing Rodney and Jacob get their happy ending, along with catching up the rest of the James family, was great!! Perfect ending to an amazing series!!

I hope Mari keeps the m/m books coming!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great job ;) May 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I must admit *blushingly* that I didn't know this was part of a series prior to reading so I went in blind so to speak. Thankfully I came out as a very interested reader in what the other books reveal and plan to pursue them ;) This one is a quick read but there is HOT M/M action as well as emotions and interactions that pull you in and have you rooting for Jacob & Rodney! There's fun, family, excitement and hot sex what more could you ask for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! May 29, 2012

The "Because" series is absolutely wonderful and it just got even more so!!!

We have been waiting for Jacob's and Rodney's story, at least I have. From the moment they met you could just feel their chemistry. They have both been dancing around their feelings for each other and it all comes to an exciting boiling point at Jacob's annual party. I think starting out friend really helped set their story and all that Rodney went through being shot and his recovery. All that happen made their story and HEA all that more satisfying. This is another winner for Mari and an excellent addition to the series!

More About the Author

Writing a book was number one on Mari's bucket list and on her thirty-fourth birthday, she set out to see that goal achieved. Now her computer is jammed full of stories -- novels, novellas, short stories and dead-ends. A New York Times and USA Today bestseller as well as winner of the Passionate Plume, Mari found time for writing by squeezing it into the hours between 3 a.m. and daybreak when her family is asleep and the house is quiet.
