The HIT LIST (Best reads - yes it includes title and author)

There are some books that you just cant put down, thats a problem for me because I rarely have time to squeeze a good book in. But I do try. I have a huge library just waiting for their turn to arrouse my senses. I have also learned to never trust the reviews on Amazon. I have bought five star books with lots of 'loved it' posts and when I read it I'm thinking   yep you guessed it    "Are you serious?" I mean I must of picked up the rough draft or something. Maybe its not even the same book or perhaps the poster was on a healthy dosage of Zanax (thats probably spelled wrong, I don't do drugs so careless if its spelled correctly) Anyhoo- moving along. Sometimes you just have to give a shout out for whats good. Becuase lets face it there's enough bitching in the world and we need to remind ourselves to pause a moment and thank someone for their talent, service or time. Letting them know they've done something super cool. Being thanked is super cool too.

But dont worry as I told of myself I am not politicly correct so yes there will also be a SHIT LIST (coming soon) Because some things need to be burned.

First up:

Long Tall Drink by L. C. Chase (Loose i.d.)

Product Description

Genre: LGBT Contemporary Western

Fourth generation rancher, Ray Ford has lived a lie for nearly forty years. Having seen what can happen to an openly gay cowboy in small town America, and not willing to risk his ranch Ford Creek’s legendary reputation, he keeps that part of himself tightly locked down. Everything changes one Sunday morning when Ray, out of character, picks up a handsome hitchhiker looking for work. Hiring the enigmatic cowboy stretches the bounds of Ray’s control and, suddenly, he finds himself asking just what he'd be willing to risk for a chance at true love.

Travis Morgan learned a hard lesson early in his life -- love is conditional. Even though he’s a world-class horse trainer in high demand, he lives the life of a drifter, moving from ranch to ranch like the wind. He’ll play when the opportunity arises, but he won’t invest himself emotionally. But when he takes on the job training horses at Ford Creek Ranch, the stoic rancher with the sexy five o’clock shadow just might change all that -- if Travis can take the risk and stick around long enough to find out.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: male/male sexual practices.
Now here's my pick on it. Its definitely a strong four star and the only reason I didn't give it five was because the story resolved too quickly. There was definitely room for further expanded resolvement. (not to mention I personaly didnt want to stop reading it) Mind you the character and environment developement--wonderfully touched. You get a good feel for the surroundings and the emotional turmoils these men put themselves through. Well written that you feel what they feel and want what they deny themselves. Which is the greatest talent a writer can accomplish, after all thats why we read. To step out of our own bodies and venture off into a new world, new discoveries, new passions without ever having to worry about getting your luggage lost.
Chase also gives 'good face' in otherwords the sex is actually there  emotional and powerful. Not a porno check list or a brief two sentence swaray that left you feeling abandoned.
Oh let me add before I go. As some readers (especially GM) may know many of the MM erotica is written by women and well end up being for women readers. I would like to point out that while I dont deny either of these on Long Tall Drink, BUT I think Chase did a great job of making men act like men and therefore this read will also satisfy the guys as well as the girls.
