A ZA Maxfield tale is always well-told, and this was no exception, except, pardon me, that I wondered what had happened to the editor of this tale. Had he/she given up the ghost? I cannot believe that this tale was marketed as a romance, and a whole novel at that, not a serialised or part1/part2 tale, because that ending totally didn't do it for me. It had me wondering what happened to the three adults at the core of the tale, it had me wondering about the supposed love between the males, and it had me wondering about whether there actually could or would be a HEA, and how the leads could live in their Texan bible belt town, with the many secrets that came out. And yes, there was a whammy of secrets.

I have to say that the tale started off well and that it's one with a premise that I'd not encountered in a western-set tale, and certainly not a contemporary one, and it promised a lot, seemed to be heading to giving me all that I need from a romance, but then it fell short. I am not sure if the editor didn't read it til the end, and/or if the author couldn't be bothered or couldn't figure out where to take the tale and how to end it, but that was o ending at all. NOTHING was tied up. Not the marriage, not the leads's togetherness, not the situation with the child, not the new career, not their possible future lives - nothing.

This really shouldn't have been marketed as a romance, as I didn't hear those all-important words uttered out loud, other than between the wrong people, and there was no HEA or even HFN.. I hated the bigotrythat was left up in the air, as was the tale. I am only glad that I paid far, far less than the current asking price.

I chose to write this review because I couldn't let stand the poor reviews that some people found it necessary to write! I thought this was a terrific read, filled with three dimensional characters and an intricate, unusual plot. I found the lead characters perfectly human (with the usual human frailties) and quite charming. The unusual trio ending I found most satisfying and the three people thereof, quite brilliant in their decision. The unusual, but completely loving relationship in the marriage, was touching. The characterization of Jonas, the little boy was right on the mark. I found this quite the page turner, and I would highly recommend it to other readers - don't believe the naysayers as they are totally wrong. I know that the characters will remain bright in my memory. Bravo Z.A. Maxfield for a stunningly lovely book!

It saddens me to say I didn’t love this book. I usually do really enjoy this authors work. I personally wouldn’t tag this as a cowboy book. More of a small town good old boy comes out of the closet and faces all the BS that brings with it story. The story is told from Ryder’s POV only. I would have liked to see things from Declan’s POV. He came off as almost too good to be true. Hunky young doctor comes to down and knocks Ryder’s world off kilter. He was not born and raised in Bitterroot and his view on the social politics that confined Ryder might have helped me feel some compassion for their situation. Instead of being mostly frustrated with it. It also would have given me a break from Ryder’s constant angsty martyr routine.

Ryder grew up in Bitterroot with his best friend Andi. Andi is a rich horse rancher’s daughter and wild at heart. A crazy weekend as a teenager in the city leaves her pregnant and afraid of the shame that stigma places on her from the gossiping small town people and the wrath of her father. The sperm donor wants nothing to do with her or the baby and she’s underage. So her gay best friend steps up to marry her. Both because he’s a good friend and it helps him put his desire for men on the back burner under the guise of more important things. Like raising a child and supporting a family.

I grew up in a small town. So I can relate to the gossiping and the need to keep up appearances to avoid being the one gossiped about. This book just seemed to take it to an entirely different level. One I can’t help by lay at Andi’s feet. Yes, she was afraid and took the safest and easiest way out. Something Ryder was willing to offer. Great! I get the impulse to avoid the scrutiny and tidy up the mess she found herself in as quickly as possible.

As a follower of the series, I admit that this story was not what I expected. While the other books centered around the main characters' lives, Ryder and Declan's story encompassed a lot more. It was slow-going in the beginning what with the wife, the son and the people of the town all there in Ryder's business. It certainly didn't help matters that I disliked Andi or that Ryder's thoughts were borderline angsty. Thankfully, a storm blew into town moving things along a bit.

Ryder and Declan made such an enticing pair. I loved watching Ryder discovering the intricacies of being with a man and letting himself be led by his body instead of his mind. And I loved that Declan was understanding of Ryder's conflicting emotions about what was developing between them. I loved that Ryder found solace in Declan. Something he needed at the time.

Although their connection was instant, it took me a while to fully see it. Their time together was limited due to Ryder's situation, but the author made sure that their interactions showcased that connection. It also helped that they had great chemistry. I don't think their story would have the same impact without their fierce chemistry. It was a mix of desperation and unbridled lust whenever these two got together. That first hook up was intense and worth the anticipation!

In truth, I wouldn't have minded more time with these two. Ryder and Declan truly had something worth exploring. Like I said before, they were great together. But for me their story felt unfinished. In the end Ryder and Declan's future seemed uncertain and I was left with more unanswered questions that I would have liked.
