Blurb: Love is a fragile thing, and it can slip through your fingers if you don’t hold on tight….
When Zack Jung’s AA sponsor and friend commits suicide, he’s desperate to hold it together, and there’s only one place he can turn. He calls Josh and Kris, and they take him back to their ranch outside Santa Fe.
A cowboy to the bone, Cimarron Duran cherishes his orderly life and routine. He likes his neighbors, Kris and Josh, but he has less than no interest in the hipster personal trainer who comes to stay with them—or at least, he plans to fight his interest in favor of his solitary life and his art.
But some things are as inevitable as the weather, and when Zack and Cimarron finally come together, they find they don’t want to let go. It won’t be easy, though, for two men with pasts like theirs to forge a happy future together.
Review: Zack had once been Josh’s AA sponsor and a good friend. He was the only one that could help him when his own sponsor committed suicide. He was the one to find Ray and it tore at him each time he remembered. He knew the only way to hold on was through his friends. When Josh and Kris offer to take him home to Santa Fe with him, he goes for it. He had not expected Cimarron.
Cimarron has not had an easy life. He had lost one man he loved and wasn’t exactly the nicest guy. However when he spots Zack, he knew he was going to have a hard time ignoring the man. However there was just something to the man that called to him.
I will admit that the support these guys seem to give each other was pretty amazing. You don’t see that happening these days. I liked Zack quite a bit but Cimarron not so much. The story was missing quite a bit of details that would have made it easier, however it was a pretty well told story. However my problems with it was the fact that it was drawn out and boring. The connection between the two was easy to see but it was missing some major sparks for me to like. It also felt like certain parts of the story as thrown into it to make it longer. The animals made the story quite a bit better for me. They were sweet and funny as hell.
For this series I would suggest reading book one first because you will get to know Kris and Josh who are mentioned in this story quite a bit. It is not needed but would recommend it. For me the story was a good one but on the dull side. I hate to admit that this one was definitely not my kind of book.
