Review: Very good short story about two men from very different backgrounds coming into each other’s lives at just the right time. Will Conrad is a country star, gay and closeted. Afraid of coming out, with so much to loose there is just no reason until he finds the right guy. A car accident disabled Blake Bonner a few years back, but that didn’t stop him from becoming a world class rodeo-er. It did however stop him from meeting someone. Afraid no one would want a “cripple” to top them he just kept to himself. When both men decide to go on a online meeting place neither expects to meet anyone special. Both hoping for a one night stand before continuing on their journey’s. But the attraction is immediate. And a bond is formed very quickly.
