Book Review

Short and sweet, this story features two very hot cowboys, a herd of llamas, and some hot summer loving “up on the mountain”. With the age difference between Skeet and Dan bothering Dan, and the fear of being thought of as stupid worrying Skeet, there is just enough tension for a short story like this to make things a little interesting. That and the increasing heat between the two men was definitely enough to make me smile – and keep me amused as I read about their antics.

Skeet is pretty young and has made some stupid mistakes, always looking for trouble, or so it seems. Dan is older and is trying to help Skeet from making things worse for himself, so much so that he’s even come out to Skeet to make sure the young cowboy knows he’s not alone. Skeet is so attracted to Dan he can hardly control himself, and when Dan catches him jacking off (out in the open!) during one of their breaks, the game is up. And from the moment Dan opens up, there is no going back.

If you like hot cowboys, or if you’re looking for your first story about two rugged men making a living out in the open all summer, if two men who both think they are unacceptable to the man they really want sound like an interesting pair, and if you’re looking for short, hot, and fun, then you will probably like this short story.
