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
