Overview

Ben Rivers always was a showman. He won awards in 4-H and rodeo competitions from the time he could walk, and he’s happiest in the spotlight. So when he got the chance to be a star—in porn—he took it. He still loves Montana and everything about being a cowboy, but when news of his alternate identity leaks out, he figures he’s lost the town’s goodwill forever. Clyde’s Corner would never accept an openly gay cowboy, even a hometown boy born and bred.

Joshua Braintree always had the notion that he and his best friend’s kid brother, Ben, would end up together. Ben’s always been a diehard cowboy, just like him: they need the land and its freedom as much as they need air. So when Joshua learns Ben moved away from their small Montana town to be a porn star in Vegas, he can hardly believe it. He’s determined to finally declare himself and bring Ben home.

Despite his longtime crush on Joshua, Ben won’t be as easy to tame as Joshua’s “lost cause” horses. It will take a lot of heart and holiday spirit for Joshua to convince Ben that even old prairie dogs can learn new tricks in the name of love.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2013 Advent Calendar package "Heartwarming".

    Review posted on Books on Silver Wings blog.

    Joshua thought he and Ben will eventually become a couple so he hasn't made a move yet. But Joshua waited too long and Ben
    leaves town to become a porn star in Vegas. When the towns people found out, Ben is afraid of the town's opinion of him so he refuses
    to return, even when Joshua goes to Vegas to personally get him back. Joshua finally realizes from a little girl that needs to know she's
    accepted and liked at the ranch, why Joshua won't come home to him. He arranged an holiday getup to win Ben's heart.

    Joshua's always sure of himself and quiet; only saying what needs to be said. He truly cares for Ben and struggles to decide if he can
    completely uproot himself to live in Vegas with Ben and give up his cowboy lifestyle. Later, he confronts the townspeople at the town
    meeting and speaks up for Ben. That is a very heartwarming moment in the book. I love the analogy with the prairie dogs and how that
    represents Joshua's character in the story.

    Ben loves being a cowboy, but when he's not accepted in his hometown, he choses to be a porn star full time. He is actually more
    insecure and afraid of other's opinions than Joshua. He doesn't have the courage to come back to town and be confident about who
    he is. Most of the townspeople actually missed him and do not care about his sexuality.

    The book describes the cowboy attitude and small town feel perfectly. I can totally imagine being there and watching the events unfold.
    Overall, the story is beautifully written and very romantic. The underlying message I get is be proud of who you are and confront your
    challenges.

    I’m close to the opinion that Eli Easton is an automatic win for me. If she writes it? I’m gonna love it. The Prairie Dog’s Love Song is a sweet story of Joshua and Ben. Ben has been in love with Joshua for years and Joshua has liked Ben but figured he’d get around to things in time – plus, as a cowboy, one didn’t just shake their gay’ness in others faces. Only – he’s too late. Ben was outed as having done porn by a nasty individual in town and split, moving to Las Vegas to stay. After Joshua watches every single one of Ben’s porn vids, he feels the weight of waiting and also that he let his best friend, Ben’s brother Chet, down by not looking out for the younger man.

    Like I said, I LOVED this story. It had humor, romance, two wonderful cowboys, quirky sidekicks, cowboys, Stetsons, cowboys, townies who bring up the historical accuracy of homosexuality among cowboys, horses, oh, and did I mention cowboys? The only part where I would have loved to kick Joshua in the butt was when he and Ben got together. True, they didn’t do the whole shebang, but I would have thought he would at least worry a little about Ben’s health – as in ‘are you clean?’ But that was just one bump – the story more than made up for it.

    Truly – READ Eli Easton. You’ll thank me later. (And who knows that movie quote?)

    Sometimes novellas can be better if they were longer and sometimes they wouldn't benefit at all with extra.  This is one of those that would not be better if it was longer.  That might be a bit of an over guesstimation on my part but I seriously can't see this being better with more words.  How can one not fall in love with Joshua and Ben?  And what about Henry? So easy to hate him and he's only actually in a couple of scenes and mentioned in passing in a couple of others.  This is an absolutely perfect Christmas tale to add to my growing collection.
