A lace corset, a bar of rose scented soap…
Lovers Jeb McCain and Boone Fowler don’t know what to expect when they find an unconscious man in the countryside, but it’s certainly not a sexy little man dressed in a woman’s lace corset.
They soon discover that they want Avery to join their little family, but to keep him safe, Avery has to become their wife. Can they convince Avery and the rest of Applegate Valley that the pretty man they’ve fallen for is a woman?
This story opens with two strong, sexy cowboys, Jeb and Boone, and their discovery of a gorgeous, unconscious man – who they soon find out needs both protection from an abusive uncle and true loving to show him his worth.
Cowboy Dreams is a short but well-written contemporary story about these three men who find love in a non-traditional community that won’t judge them. The characters are all well-developed, and the sex scenes, while hot and descriptive, are perfectly constructed and not over the top. We see the way Avery slowly comes to trust his rescuers, and the way in which Jeb and Boone’s long-term commitment opens to a third party. Each step in the plot is believable, from the opening scene with the cowboys’ honest concern, to the final show-down when Avery’s uncle reappears and threatens to take back his nephew.
While I enjoyed the story, I did have a few issues with the storyline. I feel that there’s a tad too much backstory at the start. It pulled me from the current story and didn't seem to help. The other was that there was some repetitive narration as well. But, once you get past the opening chapters, though, the pace picks up. Despite these things, the tale was well worth the read.
If you’re looking for a male-male/ménage story with hot guys set in the rugged west, you can’t go wrong with Cowboy Dreams. It’s short, to the point, and satisfying all at once.
