Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father's demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father's money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar.
Quiet, hard-working Jared McFarland loves his farm on the outskirts of Hope, Arizona, but he aches to have someone to come home to at the end of the day.

But when Lucas invades his heart in addition to his space, Jared has to decide how much of himself he's willing to risk and figure out if he can offer Lucas enough to keep him after his father's punishment is over.
A complete short story that leaves you feeling like you read a full length novel and smiling at the end. It’s a feel good read. Yes, it’s M/M romance but there is so much more to it than that. One man must overcome his insecurities while the other has to learn to live without the luxuries he’s accustomed too and fight the attraction he’s felt for years for a man that has no clue that he’s even attractive. I fell in love with Jared quickly, he was a down home southern gentleman who worked hard and only wanted to find someone to love him and be happy sharing his simple life. Lucas was a little harder to love at first, but then you learn more about him and when all is said and done you can’t help but want these two men to find their home and happily ever after.
