Title: Loving His Cowboy
Author: Jess Buffett
Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Characters: Quinn Bridges, Luc Walker
Sub-Genre: Contemporary, Erotic Romance
Quinn Bridges has almost everything a man could ask for. He is healthy, his cattle station is doing well, and he just signed a deal of a life time. After a chance encounter with a young man at the pub, he thinks perhaps he has met the final missing piece to his life.
Luc Walker has spent most of his life proving himself to everyone around him. Meeting Quinn changes that as the older man has no idea who Luc really is. Desperate to not change how Quinn sees him, Luc keeps his true identity from him.
But when things fall apart and Quinn discovers Luc’s secret, will he be able to convince Quinn that nothing is more important to him than loving his cowboy?
A love story and a false identity. That couldn’t possibly go wrong, now could it? Luc comes from money, so everyone assumes he’s spoiled. He’s in lust with hard-working cowboy Quinn, and wants to be seen for his true self, not just the wealthy name. Yet the truth always comes out in the end. But is that the end?
One-night stand with your crush is the start of this story, and added to it is lying about one’s true name. Hot sex is exactly that here, hotter than a wildfire. Quinn’s a no-nonsense kinda man, and Luc is shy and in need of proving himself to be something beyond the family name and the reputation attached to it. The two men complement each other well, and their interaction is fun to read as they try to figure one another out, to make sense of what has been said and done.
Some time passes in this story, from the first hookup to the revelation of who’s who. I admit my emotional needs were fully satisfied with the way this was handled, the little interspersed details about both men to give them depth, the misunderstanding as a well-used trope, and the resolution of their situation. The writing, the pace, the whole story simply works. For a romance, for a story, for the sexy bits.
Recommended for a quickie with a little bit of everything one might ask for.
