Overview

Can love conquer all?

Jimmy Rafferty and Eddie Molina go way back at the J-Bar ranch. They’ve worked together, bunked together, camped out, and drank together. So how has Jimmy failed to notice that Eddie is gay? Eddie has not failed to notice that his friend has a serious drinking problem, and he’s determined to help Jimmy kick the booze cold turkey. Taking him up to a snowbound cabin to detox, Eddie is confronted with Jimmy’s fierce denial. But the pains of withdrawal are nothing for Jimmy compared with the heartache of denying his true feelings and his deep longing…for the one man who cares for him more than anyone else on earth.

Praise for Z. A. Maxfield:
 “Z.A. Maxfield has a lyrical way of writing that makes it easy to escape into the world that she creates for her characters.”—Night Owl Reviews

“[A] damn good story and a hot, exciting romance.”—Dear Author

“Maxfield has written another gem and a winner. Run, don’t walk, to get a copy of Stirring Up Trouble today.”—ReviewsbyJessewave.com

Secret Light is not necessarily a feel good story but it’s wonderfully written and highlights a more realistic look at gay men.”—Long and Short Reviews

“The characters are strongly written and will pull you into their story right from the beginning.”—Three Crow Press about Gasp!

Z. A. Maxfield started writing in 2007 on a dare from her children and never looked back. Pathologically disorganized, and perennially optimistic, she writes as much as she can, reads as much as she dares, and enjoys her time with family and friends. If anyone asks her how a wife and mother of four manages to find time for a writing career, she’ll answer, “It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you give up housework.” Her published books include Crossing Borders, Epic Award finalist St. Nacho’s, Drawn Together, ePistols at DawnNotturno, Stirring Up Trouble, and Vigil.

    Oh Wow

    I wasn't a big fan of Don's in the beginning. I didn't want anyone to come between Jimmy and Ed. However the author kept my interest and I ended up actually liking him. This book was wonderful as all Maxwell's books are! I've read nearly all of them and gave five stars to each. You won't be disappointed.

    : I’m going to admit I read the first chapter after finishing the first book My Cowboy Heart.  I was hooked from the get go. I was also in shock when I saw who the book was about. Very pleasantly shocked since I had  thought I caught  hints  from Eddie and I will say  when Eddie took Jimmy to detox him, I thought to myself  how much I’d like to see what went on there. As if the author read my mind, here it was. Jimmy and Eddie’s story.  I was ecstatic. You do not have to read the first book to enjoy this one. I do suggest you do since it was awesome too and once you read the excerpt in the back I’m sure you will rush to get it. 
    A quick rundown: Jimmy has been having some issues and Eddie has taken it upon himself to dry Jimmy out.  Jimmy had  always been a heavy drinker  but lately as things changed around the Jbar he had gotten worse and the timing was terrible.  
    The story started out with a bang. Literally. The first line had me.  And dam was it hot… and made me have a few questions about Jimmy. I love the first person view and that it’s from Jimmy as he goes through his forced detox.  The story is very well-written with lots of heart, emotion and a touch of humour.  When Eddie’s friend is introduced, I have to say my heart plummeted. I was like oh no, not another one of those ménages.  Well it wasn’t.  This was like no rollercoaster ride.  Not a lot of ups and downs, just curve after curve. I promise you it’s not predictable.  At least for me it wasn’t. Sure there were a few things I saw coming but I wanted them to come and at times it was snapped out of my grasp.  Did I get the ending I wanted?  I’m not gonna tell you. You will have to get the book and see for yourself!
    I highly recommend this book if you like cowboys, older characters, men with problems, alcoholics, threesomes, hot mansex and a very good heartfelt story with lots of action, emotion and humour. Did I mention the hot mansex and cowboys?

    Whew!

    Z.A. is a go to author and I was anxiously waiting for this book. I read it 3 days ago and it is still wandering around in my brain. Do not plan to read this unless you have time to finish the entire story. You laugh, cry and sigh as your emotions are tangled with theirs reaching for their HEA.
    You can never go wrong with one of her books, but this is one of her best.

    My Heartache Cowboy. Z. A. Maxfield Review from Jeannie Zelos Bo

    My Heartache Cowboy. Z. A. Maxfield
    Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
    One of the things I love about gay romance is that the stories tend to be stronger than so many hetero romances and I need a good solid backing story. I've been lucky in getting two terrific ones in the space of days.
    This one was perfect, its not just the Ed loves Jimmy but...scenario, but that Jimmy has problems, he's become an alcoholic and risking his job. He's worked with Ed for years now, they are out together daily, bunk together, camp out together but Jimmy hasn't noticed that Ed is gay, never mind that Ed loves him...Then one evening when he's drunk Ed kidnaps him, knowing if he leaves him Jimmy will lose his job and home, and destroy himself.
    Ed's a terrific character, strong and silent, loving yet solid in his feelings. No flippancy and stereotypical behaviour for him. Jimmy – well he's on the track to destruction when Ed takes things into his own hands and kidnaps him for a cold turkey cure. Ed has a long time friend with benefits lover who a doctor, Don's lent them the cabin, and is on call for advice but isn't convinced it will work. Anyway things go wrong, they end up at Ed's home and Jimmy learns more about Ed in a few weeks than he's known for years. He learns a lot about himself too – such as that he's gay. He's always repressed that side of himself, had experiences in his past with men when he was a teenager, and as we learn more about his upbringing we can see his motives and behaviours that developed from that. Ed too has things in his past affecting him. Having learned a lot and dried out though Its not a HEA yet for Jimmy and Ed – they have some fun threesomes with Don at the house. Jimmy seems to have recovered, but then...something happens and there's a huge setback. Poor Ed. I really felt for him all the way through – he was such a solid, good man, waiting all those years for Jimmy, content to just be with him however he could, but always wishing for more. Don was a hero – I really didn't like him at first, took my cue from Jimmy I guess :) and Jimmy didn't realise why he disliked Don (the Dick Doctor), but I think that’s because he was jealous of what Ed and Don had, and wanted that himself, even though he couldn’t acknowledge it.
    When things go wrong though that's when Jimmy really comes into his own. I love the fall down and pick up part of romances, and I like the down to last – and here it did, it was strung out til every last drop of emotion could be wrung out – fabulous :) that made the upside so much more sweeter.
    There's sex in here, lots and lots of it, m/m of course and m/m/m too , and I’ve just written a review of another book saying how the story needs to be strong to carry scenes like this. Well, unlike that book, in this one it is, the love scenes fit the plot and become part of the story. I loved the psychology of the characters too, seeing how their pasts affected their present, and how they had to overcome or learn to deal with certain events. A fabulous book for all romance lovers, heart-warming and tear jerking, and all wrapped in a satisfying story.
    Stars: five.

    Edit: I've re reads this since review and forgotten to comment on the fabulous dry humour laced throughout. From Jimmy's hot tub musings, where he pondered would they turn into soup if they added a few vegetables and sat there long enough,(sounds like the kind of thing my mind would come up with!) to a bit at the end “ I love you ----, I’m an alcoholic”.. “stop while you're ahead Jim” :) adds a real extra to the novel.
