Who wouldn’t want a do over?
When Thaine wakes up in the hospital after a bull-riding injury, he immediately asks for his lover, Jerry. He has no idea who this man next to his bed is, despite the fact Drew insists they have been an item for the last five years.
Thaine’s best friend, Jesse, calls Jerry. He thinks it’s a pretty crappy thing to do to the new boyfriend, but tells himself it’s unlikely Jerry will come after so many years. He also doesn’t get why Thaine would pass up the opportunity to be with Drew since he’s young, optimistic, and hardworking. In short, everything Jesse ever wanted in a man.
Jerry still carries a torch for his cowboy, so when Thaine asks to go home with him to recover, Jerry agrees. At first they pick up their intense physical relationship right where they left it before the breakup. Jesse, in turn, consoles the now homeless Drew and offers him quite a bit more than a shoulder to cry on. But in the back of all the men’s minds loom Thaine’s lost five years.
So, I’ve read most everything that Sean Michael has put out. And this, like all the others is about love, friendship and self discovery. Oh, and HAWT cowboys.
Thaine, T, is a bull rider, has been for many years, until one night when the bull gets the better of him. Now he’s laid up in a hospital bed, and has lost the last five years of his life. So like many of us, he actually gets the ‘do over’ that some of us what/need.
Jerry, JJ, was the BF of five years ago. Jobs, hard headiness, stubbornness but not love, is what broke them up five years ago.
Now, T wakes up and all he can think about is JJ, problem is T has a new boyfriend, and JJ has a new life.
So we’ve four players in this book, The main are T and JJ and both of these are wonderful together. I love watching these two get re-acquainted. Showing us that love will win every time.
Jesse and Drew are the secondary people in this book, and while we do get a fair bit about them. Not enough to learn and love them.
