Yes, it's the return of the gay cowboys. Be still my beating heart.

Sweet Lips by Mel Smith, is the first m/m Western I've read that's set in the old West, with all the complications that entails. The protagonist falls hard for Wyatt, the son of a powerful ranch owner. Wyatt falls just as hard, and when the two are discovered in flagrante masculine-o, they are forced to go on the run.

And run they do! They flee across a ton of terrain, but make time everywhere they go to fall deeper in love, and r

Deke McAllister lives on the family ranch in the Dakotas, he is nearly eleven years old, the youngest of four sons; but even at that age he knows he is somehow different from his brothers, he doesn’t feel the same about girls as they.

I tease Mom all the time about her "smut books", the romances she gets from her sister and goes through so quickly. Well, this is the gay equivalent of those romances and, although I've never read a romance before, I have a feeling this is a bit more racy (and explicit) than your average Harlequin.

Deke is a cowboy in the Old West; he was kicked out by his father when a stranger takes advantage of him sexually as a young teen, and he's been working as a cowboy ever since, not hanging around in on

Uh, no.

Deke is a "nomadic rancher", going from places to places looking for jobs on the farm. He's finds one and has the hots for the boss' son, Wyatt. When they're caught in the middle of an action, they flee for safety or else face a lynching.

Eventually, they flee to a lone woman's land (and her kids). From there, things just really flopped. The sex acts is pretty redundant. Therefore, there's no erotica in there. It's just boring and weird.

I know, I know .. this is sort of like a literary version of a gay movie of the week. It is certainly enjoyable; however, even if it does not challenge the reader. I suspect the author makes a decent living with this type of gay beach read cum romance novel (note to editor: pun intended.)It is what it is and I'm perfectly happy with that.

Good, not the best I've ever read. Some situations weren't... all that believable, especially some situations where they made love. But it was quick read and sweet, so for that it gets three stars.
