I really don’t get the hype – I mean number 21 on the M/M Books You Must Read List? Why? For me, it just felt like way too many sex scenes held together with the barest of plots. And yes, there’s such a thing as too many sex scenes. Even with cowboys.
The story started off just fine – two cowboys who can’t stand each other finally having sex in the mud. After a couple of pages into the book, though, Jake and Tor seem to be getting along really well. That’s not bad in itself; the author just passed up a chance to tell a more interesting story. And the dialogue didn’t help much either. I get that it’s supposed to be tough cowboys, who don’t talk much. But a bit of clever snarky dialogue could have gone a long way to help me through the whole thing.
