Stone Hillyard is 19 and hitchhiking south to someplace, anyplace, warmer than where it is now. When he refused to perform a certain act on the man giving him a ride, he was immediately tossed out into a snowstorm. Seeking shelter, he sees lights in the distance and stumbles up to Geoff and Eli's ranch. They immediately bring him in, warm him up, feed him, and insist he stay the night. Nobody's shown that much kindness to Stone in quite a long time, and he's stunned he's offered a job there and a place to stay. One of his duties would be to help clean out the stables and help with the riding lessons. The ranch offers special riding lessons as therapy to children with needs, and Stone enjoys helping the kids.
Preston Harding is left in a wheelchair after a drunk driver crashed in his car. Having to give up his job and live at home with his parents, and constantly requiring help for even simple tasks, is demoralizing to him. He's rather arrogant, and even his best friend Jasper (who is helping him with physical therapy) says he's too shallow. Jasper knows the owners of the ranch catering to special needs children, and convinces them to give riding lessons to Preston, hoping to strengthen his legs. Unfortunately, Preston is carrying a lot of anger, and his natural arrogance and callousness has him insulting Stone, who's helping with the therapy, and treating him like dirt. Geoff wants to kick him out of the program, but Stone convinces him to let him continue. Humbled, Preston starts to see Stone in a new light.
The characters are extremely well developed. Both Stone and Preston are detailed individuals, each with their own flaws and emotional baggage. It's fascinating watching their interactions shift from total dislike of each other, to hesitant admiration, to full devotion. The story moves along, with enough fully plausible and natural events happening to add conflict into an already-difficult relationship.
The story concentrates on romance and emotions, and sexual play is light since it's a romance novel, not an erotic novel.
Some minor quibbles are that at a few points, I had to reread a couple of paragraphs to keep track of who was saying or doing what (there are quite a few characters thrown together at points), and some occasional typos in the Kindle version (things like a word missing or the wrong word being used, like "passed" instead of "past"), but it was nothing to keep me from thoroughly enjoying this story.
I liked it so much, I'm going to buy the others in the series.
Out of a home, cold and hungry, Stone at his lowest point, finds warmth and friends and much more.
This is a heartwarming story of finding a family when you have nothing.
Family is not necessarily blood related, family is those who love you, accept you and care for you .
Part of the farm series, continuing to show us what real love is all about .
A great stand alone book, this can be much more enjoyable if you start at the beginning of the farm series (love means) by Andrew Grey.
I have enjoyed every one of them .
He's done a wonderful job of sharing the insecurities of being gay that allow someone to be secure in their skin as they make their way.
Enjoyable afternoon reads.
