Buy Nowhere Ranch
Roe Davis is a man who works hard, keeps to himself, and never mixes business with pleasure -- until he takes a weekend away from his new job at Nowhere Ranch and runs into the owner at the only gay bar for two hundred miles. Getting involved with the boss is a bad idea, but Travis Loving is hard to say no to, especially when it turns out their kinks line up like a pair of custom-cut rails. As Loving points out, so long as this is sex on the side, no interfering with the job, they could make it work.
The truth is, there’s good reason Roe never settles down and always spends his birthdays and holidays celebrating alone. Shut out in the cold by his family years ago, Roe survived by declaring he didn’t need a home. As his affair with Loving grows into more than just sex, Roe finds out what happens when he stays put a little bit too long: the past always catches up with you. Eventually, even a loner gets lonely, and home will grow up through whatever cracks you leave open for it -- even in a place called Nowhere.
What I thought:
This was really enjoyable. One of the things I noticed with most books like this, they tend to ignore the discrimination or hate that comes along with this. Roe hasn't had it easy and prefers to do things on a love em and leave em basis. The story of his family was really emotional and I found myself rooting for his friends to help his family and himself to accept the way he is.
I thought that Travis and Roe were great characters. Neither perfect, neither flamboyant, neither advertising their orientation. It was nice to see a story where being gay wasn't made into a huge deal in their everyday life. Travis is exactly what Roe needed to finally let those barriers down and to really start living instead of running.
I highly recommend this. It was really hot and it had a really good story line.
