Blurb: Foster dreams of getting away, but after his father s death, he has to take over the family dairy farm. It soon becomes clear his father hasn’t t been doing the best job of running it, so not only does Foster need to take over the day-to-day operations, he also needs to find new ways of bringing in revenue.
Javi has no time to dream. He and his family are migrant workers, and daily survival is a struggle, so they travel to anywhere they can get work. When they arrive in their old van, Foster arranges for Javi to help him on the farm.
To Javi s surprise, Foster listens to his ideas and actually puts them into action. Over days that turn into weeks, they grow to like and then care for each other, but they come from two very different worlds, and they both have responsibilities to their families that neither can walk away from. Is it possible for them to discover a dream they can share? Perhaps they can plant their own and nurture it together to see it grow. If their different backgrounds doesn’t separate them forever. ”
Review: Foster wanted a life away from the Dairy Farm his family owns, but when his father dies, Foster has to step up and accept responsibility for a Farm that is far from debt free.
Javi is a seasonal worker on the Farm, he and his family travel to Farms across the country, following the work as it’s needed. Though Foster doesn’t have the money to pay Javi, he recognizes the dire need the young man and his family are in so he hires him on for the season.
The two click straight away, both having great ideas that could increase the revenue for the Farm and hopefully, pull it out of the red. When the friendship slowly evolves into something more, both men are scared. While there lives are very different, sadly, there is one thing that is exactly the same to spite their different cultures… bigotry.
The start of a new series for Mr. Grey and it’s off to a great start. I really enjoyed the slowly evolving relationship between Foster and Javi. They’ve actually known each other for several years, Javi’s family coming back to the Dairy Farm every year for work. They are both adults now and are searching to find their place in the world.
Foster already decided to take on the Farm and make sure his family legacy thrives and grows. Javi is far more torn. His culture alone negates him leaving his family. It’s all he knows, his responsibility as far as he is concerned. Both men will have to decide what is important, what is right.
If you are a fan of Grey’s Farm or Ranch series, you’ll love this new series he is starting. The flow of the story was slow and steady, not too fast and everything happened at just the right time. There was a lot of dialogue, more so than I remember in previous books from the Author, but it was refreshing to get both guys POV within their conversations when the story is told from Foster’s viewpoint.
Definitely a must read, I can’t wait for more from this exciting new world.
