Blurb: Jay Harnett’s predictable world is knocked upside down when he encounters the new school teacher, Will, in town. As their unlikely friendship blossoms, it turns to lust, love, and a whole lot more, surprising them both.

But when Will’s old flame suddenly leaps into the picture a decision must be made that will change all those involved.

Review: William Jon has fled the city to start a new life after being dumped for a woman.   Jay Harnett is a hand at the Buckshot Ranch and has always kept his sexuality a secret.   Meeting Will causes him to be a bit more daring.

This was a cute read with lots of sex but not much plot.  We get to know a little about each character’s past and what led them to the little town in Montana. We don’t get a real feel for the characters though.   They fall in love much too soon for the storyline and for such a short book there is plenty of sex and a little bit of bed hopping. I can fully understand Jay’s view of denying everything; especially in the year this is set.   And it makes you feel sorry for the two MCs that their entire lives are going to be hiding and whatever snatched moments that they can grab.

I would recommend this to those who like hot cowboys, sexy school teachers, hot sex and a HEA for 1886.
