Blurb: When vacationing Denver architect Roger Mackie rolls into a quaint old trading post in Montana’s Bitterroot Mountain Range to gas up his car, it’s the start of a life-changing journey. Lean, handsome Chippewa Johnny Two-Guns is looking for a ride. He’s on a mission to recover some clan treasures. Roger is immediately smitten and drives Johnny all the way to Arizona.
Although the two successfully build a friendship, Roger is unable to initiate the intimacy they both seem to desire. A second visit gives Roger another chance to draw Johnny out of his shell. The payoff is spectacular, leading to a week of sex and discovery, during which Johnny’s innocent enthusiasm shows Roger a new side of love between men. But trouble is on the horizon for the new couple, as fate seems set against them.
And what does the sudden appearance of sexy young architect Brad Beaver portend for the future?
Review: This is the first book by Mark Wildyr that I have read and I must say that it has a great way about it. Although the first thing I noticed about it was the sexy man on the cover and then the blurb. The title was not as eye-catching as one would think and in fact it made me almost put the story back. For me the story seemed just a bit dry and I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not. It is a wonderful story with a lot of potential, but there was just something missing to the whole story for me.
Roger agreed to give Johnny a ride to pick up some stuff from his late brothers wife, to give back to his grandmother. He felt a bit off, but the young man just did something for him. Too bad neither made a move. The heat was there but they were just to gun-shy with each other. Now it takes them a year to reconnect and things start heating up for them both.
Now I am not a fan of books that have a long period of time between certain scenes like this book and that was one issue for me. I am not really into that kind of book. Now the characters were very real for me and I can see it going down the way it said in the book.
It is a beautiful love story, but I am afraid the story was not for me.
