Kaden is 19 and suffered a ton of past abuse. The result is that he's scarred physically, mentally, and emotionally. He's on the short side, and large men generate panic attacks and flashbacks in him. Because of this, he can't keep a job for very long. When he loses his most recent one, the agent at the employment agency recommends he take a job for three months as a cook at his cousin Logan's ranch in Montana. With little choice, Kaden accepts and soon meets Logan.
Logan is large, but quite sweet and considerate. It surprises and confuses him that he seems to find an attraction to Kaden, especially since he's never in his life felt an attraction to another man before. It also frustrates him and tugs at his heart that Kaden is so afraid of him. He quickly surmises that some abuse occurred to Kaden in his past, leaving Kaden afraid of people, and terrified of large men. All he wants to do now is to ease Kaden's mind and help him heal.
The characters are nicely developed in this story. Kaden, Logan, and Shea (Logan's sister) are complex characters with distinct personalities. It's rewarding to watch these three very different characters interact. Logan and Shea are caring and gentle and try to help Kaden, but aren't sure the best way to do it. They don't know what happened in Kaden's past and realize that it will be some time before Kaden can verbalize the past abuse he's suffered. All they have to work on is what they can observe as Kaden simply isn't opening up to them. Still, they try, and it's these interactions that work their way into the readers' hearts.Read more ›
It is a bit hard to get over the straight cowboy suddenly wanting to be gay, but it works with a bit of suspension of disbelief. The way that Logan treats Kaden makes me wish that there were more of him! If you love a good romance, a bit of a tear- jerker, and a bit of predictability thrown in, please read this book.
Logan is the ranch owner who hires Kaden and right off the bat he can see that Kaden has had a rough life he wants to help him and along the way discovers a few surpising things about his sexuality...I don't want to spoil the ending or the heart-warming moments so buy this book, it was worth every penny I spent on it
