Blurb: Keith Kelley doesn’t normally take kindly to strangers, but his flashy new neighbor has long legs, lips made for kissing and might prove too much temptation for a boy hiding his sexuality in rural Idaho. Unfortunately, between working his mom’s goat ranch and land disputes with his wealthy father, Keith has enough problems. He doesn’t need the best sex of his life threatening to expose his precarious secrets.
Real estate developer Max Levin vows to turn the one-stoplight town of Pookataw Valley into a quaint vacation destination…and then leave before the dust clears. Given his next assignment starts in five months, Max shouldn’t start loving the quaint little town—the ranchland, the mountains, even the goats. If only Max could stop thinking about his sexy neighbor and the time they shared in the front seat of Keith’s truck. Because he especially shouldn’t fall in love with a guy who can’t openly love him back.
In a town the size of Pookataw Valley, nothing stays secret for long. If Keith wants to hold onto his birthright, he’ll have to fight for his land and his pride. Most of all, he’ll have to fight for Max before he slips through Keith’s fingers.
Warning: contains angry parents, horny ranchers and snarky city boys just asking to be hogtied.

Review: This was a fun and enjoyable book. The title was what first drew me in and luckily for us readers the title is exactly what we get.
We first meet the city slicker, Max, in dire straits on the side of the road when country boy/goat rancher (seriously, I would just call it a farm, but whatever), Keith, pulls over to help the obviously stranded stranger. Max has arrived in Pookataw Valley to oversee the redevelopment of a site for his boss. It’s never explicitly said, but it’s safe to say that Keith’s boss is also a good friend.
This is exactly the type of book that I love. Okay, I will admit, it’s all a bit stereotypical. Small town where everyone knows your name and the gay local(s) are all in the closet. Then enters the out of the closet out-of-towner to stir the pot and shake things up a bit. However, the characters are all for the most part engrossing and relatable although there is no hard-hitting emotion in this story. The only thing that disappointed me somewhat was that the story seemed to lag for about the third quarter of the book.
Still, if you like your country meets city, you like a somewhat naive but knowledgeable rancher (albeit a goat rancher) and a restless city boy then this story is a bit of fun to pass the time.
