Overview

Can New York City Money Meet Texas Cowboy in the Middle?

Jake Goodall is a Texas bull rider who's used to keeping his preference for men under wraps. Brent Miller is as wealthy New York businessman who has never had to hide. When Brent's car breaks down in Jake's hometown, the two of them begin a romance that might be hazardous to their health, in more ways than one. Danger lurks in the small minds of folks who'd rather not see Jake and Brent together, and sooner or later, fists are going to fly.

From the prairies of Texas to the lights of New York and back again, from western rodeos to big city gay bars to a courtroom in Dallas, Jake and Brent work through all of the problems they think they can face, their need for each other overriding the difficulties they go through. Jake knows he's got it bad when he stays with Brent through thick and thin, but can the bull rider from the Lone Star State and the businessman from New York buck the odds to stay together?

Author Alexa Snow says, "This is a great book... the story moves along quickly, keeping the reader's interest without feeling rushed. A very satisfying read; don't miss it!

Read an Excerpt

If there was one fact Jake Goodall was certain of, it was that there was nothing like having 1800 pounds of muscle and fury bucking between his thighs to get his blood boiling and his prick ready to ride more than just a bull.

Providing that his head or his balls weren't flattened like his mother's Sunday morning hotcakes, of course. Eight seconds didn't sound like much time, but when you spent them on the back of a snot-snorting, ass-busting, ball-banging bull as ornery as Wrecking Ball, they could stretch out for years. There was an old saying among bull riders--it wasn't a matter of if you got hurt, it was a matter of when and how badly.

He cleared his mind of everything but the animal beneath him, trying to 'cowboy up' as he strapped his riding hand down under the bull rope and found his seat on the broad back of Wrecking Ball. The bull heaved and banged against the steel side of the bucking chute, seemingly as anxious as Jake to get the show on the road.

Jake's left hand raised high in the air, his right tucked down tightly under the bull rope, his legs clenching Wrecking Ball's sides with the grip of a virgin's ass on prom night, and gave a nod. The gateman flung the chute open and the ride began.

Bucking, jumping, and twisting, the bull came alive under Jake's ass as it burst into the arena. It was like trying to ride a tornado but he managed to stay over his hand, keeping his seat for the full time. The whistle blew and he vaulted off the bull's back, landing squarely on his rump in the dark brown sawdust of the arena.

Jake was up and running before Wrecking Ball even realized he was gone, and the rodeo clowns ran interference asJake sprinted to the fence, getting away with his hide slightly dented, but still intact. Swatting the dust from the seat of his jeans with his hat, he grinned as his score was announced. Thirty-seven points for him and another forty for the bull meant that he'd made the finals, and he was still smiling as he worked his way out of the arena after collecting his bull rope and black Stetson, heading toward the back pens. He stopped only long enough to pick up his gray duffle bag, slinging the strap over his shoulder. He'd be back tomorrow afternoon for the short-go, and a shot at the prize money and the buckle.

    SAD SAD SAD

    Saddest ending I've read so far!!!! Was looking for HEA and it kinda didn't produce. Don't like movies that end with you crying and especially don't like books either that end with you crying. Pick another

    Sad, but Great Reading!

    A very emotional story for those who are die-hard romance-at-heart readers who love an open-ended endings. This story, at the end had me in tears, but as I fully believe love never dies or end, this tragic ending is right up my alley! I love this book. This book is how we are all different are we all have something to hide and in the end, hiding is less important than the love of another person and accepting of that difference of ourselves. I could not put this book down, so read to the end. Have read it twice now and still effects me in the same way; right in my heart.

    WHEW

    This is my "First" book in this genre and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. The characters are well defined and the plot was ongoing with it's ups and downs as their relationship evolves. The only 'complaint' I would have was the Epilogue. It actually kept me up the night I read it...I was SO upset by that ending. Read the book, grab the tissues and stress ball, then...if you're brave...read the Epi then scream. LOVED Jake and Brent; only wish the story was longer to visit with the couple.
