Synopsis

There's nothing like a fresh start, and for Randy, still nursing wounds left by a cheating ex and harboring a deep mistrust for all things corporate, Wolf, Wyoming seems like the perfect place to start over. Secluded, quiet, and self-sufficient, Wolf is bound to not only inspire, but to bring Randy the peace he needs. The view's not bad, either.
Vaughn O'Connell and his family are Randy's only neighbors for miles, and while Randy knows it's somewhat unlikely that a man with three kids is gay, it doesn't hurt to look. When a misunderstanding brings Randy face to face with both Vaughn and his eighteen year old son, Lyle, Randy's not sure what to feel about either of them.
But things are not what they appear in Wolf, and the closer Randy gets, the stranger the O'Connell family seems...

There's nothing like a fresh start, and for Randy, still nursing wounds left by a cheating ex and harboring a deep mistrust for all things corporate, Wolf, Wyoming seems like the perfect place to start over. Secluded, quiet, and self-sufficient, Wolf is bound to not only inspire, but to bring Randy the peace he needs. The view's not bad, either. Vaughn O'Connell and his family are Randy's only neighbors for miles, and while Randy knows it's somewhat unlikely that a man with three kids is gay, it doesn't hurt to look. When a misunderstanding brings Randy face to face with both Vaughn and his eighteen year old son, Lyle, Randy's not sure what to feel about either of them. But things are not what they appear in Wolf, and the closer Randy gets, the stranger the O'Connell family seems...

Randy, gives up his high-powered career in the city for the laid back, slower, more isolated life of the country. The pace of the country and the conflict of city boy vs. country folk are reflected in the writing. There is a lot of scene setting and assumptions are made between Randy and his neighbors.

Some would say that scene setting is an excuse to waffle, and yes there are parts of this story that I feel could have been less detailed. But, it also gives the story a charm that those who like to submerge themselves into another way of life will appreciate. It is a slow burn story, so if you are a jump into the action type reader, this isn’t for you. I personally found myself sinking into my recliner to read more.

Randy, is a master of words, and in true lawyer style, often uses ten when four would suffice. I often found myself tittering over the man’s internal dialogue. The story spends quite a lot of time in Randy’s head, which allows us to become intimately connected with the person. As for Vaughn, damn the man is delicious. And this story is worth reading for the sex scenes alone – hot hot hot.

I can’t honestly say that this story blew me away, but it was a pleasant, engaging read, and my temperature definitely upped a few notches in places.
