Recommends it for: people who like cowboys and enjoy short stories
Recommended to Lexi by: Monica
Shelves: novella
I really enjoyed the dozen or so short stories that surrounded this bar. From simple hook-ups to two people interested in something more, rednecks to IT techs, each story was unique while sharing the bar as a common thread of where they meet to have a good time. There were some that I liked more than others but the one the I loved the most was right smack dab in the middle called F*cking or Fighting. You gotta love a good bar fight.
The (Overall) Review:

Honesty from the outset~

Super short reads have to be something pretty damn special for me to sit up and take notice.

First things first~

I liked the premise of this book; being a series of encounters within the setting of a gay bar located in America's West. After all, what's not to like about gay cowboys. *g* Overall, however, the anthology did not capture my imagination.

It was nothing to do with the writing (I've read and enjoyed different books from these authors in the p
10 oneshot. Nine couples. 1 bar.

1. The bar owner and his lover. Hot. Contain kink that is not for everyone (enema and fisting)
2. A fresh new start. Hot and strangely touching.
3. A rodeo boy and a redneck. Want to know what happened after...
4. Not really a romance. But hot sex.
5. A sweet story about a librarian and a teacher.
6. A musician and a redneck. Love it.
7. A guitarist and an IT tech. Sweet
8. Two rodeo boy. A second chance. Good.
9. A second chance. Correct story.
10. Sequel of the first
I liked that all the stories in this anthology were related with the same bar and sometimes crossover characters.

I live and write in eastern Canada. I went to a bunch of schools, learned a lot of things, and now make stuff up because not to do so is unthinkable. I'm fond of fountain pens, Levenger's Circa system, and Steampunk fashions. Lately I've been watching a lot of Discovery channel. I've seen every episode of CSI Las Vegas and New York, but I'm not terribly keen on CSI Miami. It might be due to weathe ...more
