Chance Becket's life was mapped out. He'd one day own the ranch he grew up on, have a family, and be the son he was raised to be, like all good boys in Small Town, U.S.A. When his high school sweetheart calls for a break during her last semester of college, the last place Chance thought he'd end up was in his old friend Bradley's bed. Bradley Heart blasted out of the closet before his family could name him heir apparent to his father's church. After six years away, a job layoff has him coming home to work behind the scenes. He and his father have little interaction and he's fine with it staying that way when he returns home. Going back into the closet, for any reason, is not on his list of things to do. But Chance may prove too much a temptation, especially with the simmering feelings they’ve had for one another since they were teens. Confused over his sexuality, Chance has to decide what’s more important -- loyalty to his family and the path set forth, or the promise of happiness with not just the only man, but the only person, he's ever really wanted. Includes a very toppy accountant, a cowboy who'd rather be in the kitchen, porn positions, some spanking, and absolutely zero religion other than worshipping... You know.

I really loved this book! The setting was very nice described, the characters and their inner conflicts amazingly written, I couldn't wait for them to be together at last.

This is a solid plot that kept me reading. I felt like Caitlin's reasons for delaying in telling people that she and Chance had broken up weren't fully developed. Also, I'm always disappointed when a major plot point happens because someone overhears a conversation. It was handled well, but it's still disappointing, because the main characters are passive in that situation. Fully developed. I could picture everything and felt immersed in the world. The characters seemed like real people with believable motivations. Well-written, but with a fair number of cliches and some may/might confusion ("might" is the past tense of "may").
