Whether her characters are family men, drag queens, or lonely men searching for connections, they all find a home in her stories. Posy is married to a man who makes sure she doesn't forget to eat or sleep. Her daughter, a budding author and dedicated Whovian, helps her come up with character names. When Posy's not writing, she enjoys crafting, hiking, and singing spontaneously about the mundane, just to make normal seem more interesting.

This wasn't a bad story, it was just too short and undeveloped to be really good. All Luther's angst over coming out, so he stays away from home for years was so unsupported. It didn't even faze his mother. Eric's fear of discovery didn't seem to make a lot of sense either. The no bottoming thing was pretty misleading. But there was so much story taken up with driving back and forth, home repair, tattoo removal, there was far too little character or relationship building. I also had a hard time getting past the names; Luther? And Eric's friend was named Garth? Okaaay.

I love Posy Roberts' because it's so realistic. Her characters are real men with real life issues. There isn't only flowers and sunshine and happiness. These guys have to completely hide themselves in the oil fields, one of them went through a traumatic experience and hides even more. Great, sweet story.

Luther Almond has inherited his grandparents lake house, but he has not been back home since he was 18 and he’s now 27, but he has plenty of childhood memories of the place. He’s been roaming, moving from job to job, hookup to hookup. Currently working the Bakken oil field has been perfect for him. Erik Heat is the plumber that arrives to fix the pipes in Luther’s temporary home, but when Luther spots Erik’s tattoo, he finds himself talking to the guy, thinking maybe he has a potential new hookup. However, the more time they spend together and actually talk (or text), Luther surprises himself by wanting more, even asking Erik to help him with some repairs at the lake house.
The story is told from Luther’s point of view

This book is listed as Book One, which is good, because I’d definitely like to read more! The story starts with Luther being told by his mother that his grandma left the lake house to him. While he has not been there in a few years, he does recall spending almost every summer of his childhood there and loved it. However, he thinks this is his mother’s way of trying to get him to settle in one place – possibly finding a nice girl to settle with. Luther left home so fast, he did not bother to tell his parents he was gay since he was not sure how that would go over in conservative North Dakota! Erik used to work in the field, but now works locally, including repairs on the trailers used for temporary housing for the field workers, which is how the two characters meet. When Erik bends over, Luther spots an arrow tattoo and even makes out some lettering that does not look like it was part of the original tattoo. In his attempt to make conversation about it, discovers it’s a sore subject for Erik, but he likes him and tries again – which goes better!

I want to begin this review by quoting author Posy Roberts’ words about herself. She states she writes about “REAL LIFE. GENUINE MEN. TRUE LOVE.”. I would add to that she also writes exceedingly well. This book was full of surprises for me—all of them good. The story caught hold of me as did the characters and I didn’t stop reading until I’d finished all ten chapters. It’s a short story and I did have misgivings about that when I started. Oftentimes it’s difficult, if not impossible, for an author to fully flesh out their characters or story in such few words.

Posy Roberts managed to succeed on both counts. Her characters are well-rounded, realistic and multi-faceted. The storyline held my attention from beginning to end. All of it was satisfying, and everything had a ring of truth about it. No false melodrama and no unnecessary fluff. I really enjoyed the way Roberts has with characters. She had me wanting to know about them, what made them tick et cetera. As a short story I found it perfect. But, I’ve been sitting here wondering if she could’ve made it into a full-length novel or if it’s perfect just the way it is. Roberts can spin a good yarn and write characters well and it would be interesting to see how the story would’ve played out full-length.

Quick note about the cover—well done, but doesn’t work in my opinion. The cover doesn’t really relate to the story. For reasons which will become obvious, once one has read the book, I think a rear view was in order on the cover. Rather then a shirtless body—a nicely shaped butt would’ve tied into the idea of the story better.

Bent Arrow is an interesting and sometimes startling mix of good story and hot sex, for lack of a better word.

Erik Heat is a former Hockey Player that was forced to leave that dream behind when he got injured. He worked the oil fields for a while; until some co-workers found out he was gay and decided to play a prank that went too far. Now he works as a plumber for temporary housing.

Luther Almond has spent his life running, constantly on the move. His job in the oil field offers him the opportunities to move from place to place, hook up with random guys no strings attached, and make a pretty penny while he’s doing it. When Luther and Erik hook up for one of those no strings attached romps, neither man thinks it could become anything more. But then one night becomes, two, then three, which turns into sexting and friends who can talk to each other, help each other out. Soon, it threatens to become something permanent… if both men can learn how to bend.

This was just a fast fun read. I love those one night stand stories that turn into something more real and passionate, which is what happens for Luther and Erik. They understand each other in a way no-one else seems to, they fit together. There was a bit of angst and not communicating which annoyed me a bit, but overall I really enjoyed this short, sexy, romantic story. I’d recommend it if you are looking for quickie, I blew through it in no time at all, and it left a smile on my face.
