Dante Rivers just lost the rodeo by two one hundredths of a point: he’s frustrated as hell, needs to get laid, and he knows just where to go. That night he meets Ryan Abbott and catches his eye—Ryan watched the rodeo and is still riding high on the rush. The chemistry between them ignites, but Dante, unable to deal with complications, leaves while Ryan’s asleep.
Ryan figures he’ll never see Dante again, but they’re fatefully reunited when Dante’s grandfather, Hy, hires Ryan to help straighten out some old investments. The attraction between Ryan and Dante still sizzles. Sex slowly turns to more, but obstacles abound: Hy’s failing health, Dante’s homophobic sponsor, an attack on Ryan, and Dante’s own struggle with his identity. Any one thing would be enough to separate them permanently… unless they both decide to hang on for the wild ride.
Dante Rivers just lost the rodeo and is frustrated, mad and has a lot of energy he needs to get rid of. He thinks there’s only one way to do that and heads off to a bar hoping to find someone to take it all away. Ryan Abbott turns out to be that man. The two men play a game of pool and then head off to Ryan’s hotel room where they spend a very intense night together.
As Ryan says “It was sensual, hot, and incredibly erotic.”
Ryan breaks through all of Dante’s control, giving him not only the most intense night of his life, but the most emotional one he’s ever experienced. When Dante wakes in the middle of the night he knows he can’t face Ryan in the morning and takes off, though he regrets it almost immediately, wishing he could run right back to Ryan’s arms.
Ryan can’t stop thinking about Dante. He thinks the reason the man ran out on him was because he was scared of how he made him feel. Ryan spends a lot of time trying to forget about him, but nothing he does can make his thoughts go away.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been as in tune with another human being like I was with him.”
To bad he’ll never see him again. Then Ryan takes on a job for an elderly man who needs help sorting out his finances before he passes away. Ryan agrees to go to the man’s home and when he gets there he’s shocked to find out his client is Dante grandfather.
From there these two men start a relationship that is like nothing either one of them has ever experienced, then Ryan gets attacked and Dante regrets not telling him how he feels.
“I almost lost you,” Dante said. “And it scares the crap out of me, okay? What if I can’t get along without you?”
I really loved this story, it was emotional, funny and filled with love.
“It’s your heart I fell in love with. The way you looked out for those kids, the way you care for Gramps, and now me. You shouldn’t have had to say how you feel, because you show it all the time. I just needed to be able to see it.”
Another amazing book for Mr. Grey!
