Review: Once again KC has written a story that just draws you in and keeps you captivated. I love the way the characters just developed together. I wasn’t happy with Leo, but after a time I realized how he felt was well deserved.
Leo had left his home town and the rumors that were running for a life in the city. He comes home when his mother passes on but he is left with questions unanswered. He wanted to know who his father was. He was hurting but a friend made it all better.
Well that and the fact that Harrison turned him the hell on. He had a chance at something, he just had to decide to stay in his home town and give Harrison a chance, or run. Harrison had not really wanted to be a farmer, just stayed to help his father. When Leo comes home, it is time to tell him how he feels.
I actually enjoyed this story quite a bit. I was not surprised however, because KC has always given you stories that just seem to flow just off the pages. The serious of the story has been blessed with just a hint of humor in it. For me I need to have some humor in my stories to enjoy them.
I had a blast reading it and look forward to reading more by this author.
