Oh. My. God. this book! Not at all what I expected it to be, but that wasn't a bad thing. I was just caught by surprise by how dirty and kinky this was. Holy hell!!

After Roe Davis left home, because his family was unable to accept his homosexuality, he has been moving to different areas. He is now in Nebraska and has just gotten a job at Nowhere Ranch. Despite his family thinking that what he does in the bedroom is sinful, he has no problem being true to himself. But, he most definitely does not do relationships. When he goes to the nearest gay bar he finds none other than his boss Travis Loving there as well. It's awkward as hell to say the least, but after Roe and Travis talk, they realize that their sexual proclivities may match. Roe knows it's a terrible idea to get mixed up with his boss, but when the attraction becomes too much, they agree on just sex.

"I told you," he said, voice rough but not unkind, "I know what you want, and I give it to you.”

This story was told completely in Roe's POV, and it was a very enjoyable one. It did take a while for me to get into, but once I was able to connect with Roe, I found myself really liking it. I absolutely loved the steamy connection between Roe and Travis. The first part of the book is where both these characters explored their sexual relationship in full. Yowza! I've read some filthy eroticas in the past, and definitely some with BDSM in it. Although most of those have been m/f books, I have a read a few that were m/m. This one, however, blew all those books out of the water in the kinky department. I have never squirmed uncomfortably and blushed so hard at what I was reading. I had no idea if I was enjoying it or not, it was very confusing. So a warning to anyone who wants to read this book, read it while you are alone.

The more time Roe and Travis spent together, the more their feelings for each other grew. This at first became a bit of a conflict between them because Roe kept wanting to keep things purely sexual. I loved how patient yet challenging Travis was towards Roe. I loved how free Roe could be around him. It was really beautiful watching them fall for each other. But this book was more than just sex. There were some heartfelt situations in it. This is where the book changes a bit and becomes more about their romantic relationship. It was also where the issues of homophobia were dealt with.

'My whole body gave over to him. My body trusted him, not just my mind. Trusted him with everything.'

Can I just say that I LOVED Haley. She was such a great and supportive character. She accepted both Roe and Travis for who they were, good people. She did annoy me a bit at first but that changed quickly. Roe was very lucky to have her in his life. The epilogue had me tearing up with happy tears. I loved it so much, even if it was a tad mushy, I didn't care one bit. My heart melted for them. This story, while being explosively hot, was also über sweet, and emotional. I really enjoyed it. I don't know why I didn't read it sooner. This was my first book from this author and it won't be my last. I highly recommend this one, but it is definitely not for everyone due to the subject matter. Still, it is definitely worth reading.
