Down on the Farm isn’t exactly a “friends to lovers” book, or a “reunited lovers” book. It’s not even an “unrequited lovers” book. It’s closer to an “enemies to lovers” book, but not quite.
Beck spent some time at his grandmother’s house growing up. Enough time that she left him the house and property to him in her will because she knew that he loved it there. He may have loved it, but he had no idea what to do with it and he had no intention of living in Ames Bridge for the rest of his life. Fate has a way of changing plans though and it was the perfect escape when he needed a place to get his life back on track.
Cal had come a long way since Beck thought he knew him. Turns out he was just as infatuated with Beck back then as Beck was with him. They both had their personal issues to overcome though and more than a little miscommunication (both past and present) came into play. Town gossip, nosy neighbors, well meaning friends and small town craziness all kept things more than a little interesting.
Regardless, I really liked the first book in the Ames Bridge series and I’ve already got the second book, The Past Comes Home, ready and waiting on my Kindle. Stay tuned!
So, this is a story about Cal, a childhood friend of Beck who became his bully in high school because of his difference. However, Cal himself carried secrets and as the two met again as a result of Beck resigning from his career as a teacher, Beck finds himself back in the little town he was raised. What is Cal' s secret and what will the gossipy old ladies do for Beck and Cal...?
Also got a wonderfully developed romance that centered around lost expectations regained by happenstance for both Beck and Cal. I liked the dynamics of the bigoted town vs. two men who have to figure out how to avoid blowback from it.
The narrative was strong where needed, gentle when called for, blistering when expected. Nice surprise.
