Blurb: Graham and his roping partner Jackson have ruled the rodeo scene for ten years running, but lately, Graham’s heart isn’t in the game. He’s tired of the bruises, the cowboy mentality, and the animal rights activists who picket every event. And then there’s Jackson.
Graham and Jackson have been friends since they were boys. But ever since their drunken sexual encounter the year before, things have been awkward. Graham’s accepted that he might be gay, but no matter how attracted he is to other men, he always panics and runs when the clothes start to come off.
Then Graham has a run-in with one of the rodeo protesters, and everything changes. Kaz is young, idealistic, and sexy as hell. And Kaz has an idea for getting Graham past his nerves and into bed.
All they need is a bit of rope.
Graham has been in love with Jackson, his best friend and rodeo partner, for years. But ever since they had a drunken sexual encounter nearly a year ago, their relationship had been changed for the worse. Things are tense and strained and Graham has finally decided its time for him to move on. He accepts that he’s gay, but he still can’t fight his urge to flee whenever things start to become intimate with another man…that is until he meets Kaz. Kaz is Graham’s total opposite, an animal rights activist totally against Graham’s livelihood; demonstrating at every rodeo event Graham competes in. But there is an attraction between them and Kaz may be just what Graham needs to control his fears…yes, rope will be involved.
Okay, this was HOT! I admit it; I do have a slight kink for some bondage. Add in the punk, skater dude dominating the cowboy…gah! No worries, it doesn’t get too heavy…at least in my opinion and I do not read much BDSM.
Inside the bedroom, Kaz and Graham work, they perfectly compliment each other. Outside, they have very little in common. And since this story is a short erotic piece, I’m not sure I got to the point where I can believe that Kaz and Graham will be able to have a lasting relationship out there in the real world.
And then there is Jackson, Graham’s best friend, who has heartbroken, broody cowboy written all over him. Now there is the story I really want to read!
If you want kinky hot sex with a bit of bondage, this is exactly what you are looking for. If you want a deep emotional connection…this isn’t it.
Overall Impression: I Liked It!
