Overview

It takes a pissed-off Brahma bull named Shockwave to show rodeo pickup man Marty Fairgrave the cold hard truth about champion bull rider Tripp Colby: Tripp will never leave the safety of his closet or acknowledge Marty in public. Sometimes loving someone just isn’t enough, and after a year of hiding what they are, Marty finally sees the light—and it’s no longer shining on Tripp.

Tripp Colby would do anything for Marty. Well . . . almost. He’s never loved anyone before, and isn’t quite sure how to handle it now. But he knows Marty is his everything, and in order to win him back, Tripp will have to overcome his darkest fears and step into the light.

But no matter Tripp’s intentions, the cost might be too high and the effort too late for these two cowboys to ride off into the sunset.

    Pickup Men L.C. Chase Arc provided by Netgalley. I love Ripti

    Pickup Men L.C. Chase

    Arc provided by Netgalley.

    I love Riptide Publishing books. They aren't the cheapest but always have the best quality writing and novels that will be read and re read and that's makes them excellent value for money.
    First book I've read by L.C.Chase and I'll certainly look for additional ones and look forward to more in this series. Cowboys, the ultimate Macho Male and yet they're people like the rest of us and share the same sexual leanings, but of course expectation and perception along with influence and the need for sponsorship and the money it brings mean that its not easy to come Out. Marty has a fabulous family, great friends and has been out for years but trip, his secret lover is world champion and not out. He takes great care to keep it that way too, hanging out with homophobes and taking care not to even glance Martys' way in public. Its heartbreaking for Marty, Tripp always saying he'll come out at some point but after two years they're no nearer that point. When Marty has a really serious accident in a rodeo saving Tripps life, Tripp doesn't even visit til well after hours when everyone has left the hospital. Martys' friends are disgusted, though Tripp isn't out they know about him and Marty and this is the last straw for them. They know Marty deserves better, and encourage him to end things. Marty loves Tripp, is sure Tripp loves him and yet he's reached breaking point and tells Tripp it's over. Paramedic Eric is waiting in the wings, he's attracted to Marty just to add complications of course. Can Marty get back with Tripp or will he move on to Eric....
    Great characters and a superb book showing just what trails face gay men in a typically hetero environment. It must be difficult even in the friendliest sector being different from peers but to admit it when its a place where gays are regarded with ridicule by so many men takes courage. Marty clearly has the backing of his family and close fiends and that's given him the strength to do it but for Tripp his background is so different. He comes across as selfish and uncaring of Martys' feelings, but this book shows us how we need to look beyond surface image to see what produces such attitudes. What happens to him could happen to anyone, and its a sad reflection of society that this book could easily be a story you'd see on the news today :( One day people will be accepted for what they are...I hope.
    Anyway, a cracking romance, sensual and moving, beautifully written, had me close to tears in places and with such hope that they could pull through. The settings were perfect, I could feel the dust, see the condensation on the beers, smell the sweat from the animals, one of those great, rare books that pull you straight into the scene. Its shows too ,how important family is in shaping the adults people will become, and how some people's perceptions and actions are so dangerously wrong. Some real surprises at the end too – its not just a romance book but so much more and stayed with me for a while after.

    Stars: well its becoming the norm for me with Riptide books to rate them fives, and this one gets the full five :) Testament to Riptides' quality and care in selection of authors I guess.
