Roe Davis is a man who works hard, keeps to himself, and never mixes business with pleasure — until he takes a weekend away from his new job at Nowhere Ranch and runs into the owner at the only gay bar for two hundred miles. Getting involved with the boss is a bad idea, but Travis Loving is hard to say no to, especially when it turns out their kinks line up like a pair of ...more

**4.5 stars**

"I don't want a partner. I don't want a husband. I want a boy. I want a little slut I can order what to do. I want you in boots and spurs and chaps and nothing else, sucking on my cock with a tail hanging out of your ass."

Heidi Cullinan, you are a bad, bad girl.

This book was S to the M-O-K-I-N-G hot. Like my kindle burst into little flames and the ashes melted away- kind of hot. DAMN. I was not prepared for this level of heat. This is not for the beginner M/M reader. Hell, this is

"My name is Munroe Davies and this is the story of how I found Home"

This story is beautifully and poignantly narrated by Roe - he isn't well educated, but he's smart and doesn't need fancy words to illustrate his emotions and feelings, he's just straight forward and genuine, with no corruption or insincerity. There is only one language for Roe and it is simple honesty in black or white - no grey areas.... his words just broke my heart and made me smile at the innocence of the rendition of his
That was the kinkiest thing I have read in a really loooong time. And the story line held together pretty well. It all wrapped up a little too neatly in the end but not annoyingly so.

Baby's first Heidi Cullinan...

I lay many thanks on the feet of my dear Cupcake because she gave me the most needed boot in my ass to finally read Heidi Cullinan. We've been discussing (maybe I've been pushing her onto the Tali train - but I mean well) for months, guys. Long months. And I have a list of other books we nee
3.5 stars. So Shelley and I read and reviewed this one together. Which turned out to be an awesome experience, most of the time, ahem!

Allow me to quote:

Shell thought it wasn’t THAT rough. After all, there wasn’t any bestiality (of which there was plenty of opportunity) and she got the giggles when we got to that scene; all she envisioned was not being able to remove said appendage from said orifice. Gah! What would the doctor say at the ER? ‘Congratulations sir, you have a healthy fist?’ Intelle
I wasn't planning on reading anything for fun this month—I'm too busy reading for work—but this book jumped out at me and demanded to be read. "I'm full of dirty talk!" it said. "I'm kinky!" it said. So I just had to make some time for Nowhere Ranch.

Storywise, it reminded me of Bareback and Keeping Promise Rock. Strangely enough, it didn't remind me of Mary Calmes, but I've only read one book by her, so maybe there are some similar patterns there and I just can't see them.

For me, the difference
So I finally read this. It was all kinds of kinky in the beginning. I loved that right out of the gates, like Chapter 1, we get a bit of play and it was hot. I read the first 30% of this in a department meeting being asked numerous times if I was okay. Are you fucking kidding me? No. I was not okay, I needed to go out into the hall for some cool air before I fell off my chair with what was going on with these words on the page.

I have to say I adored Roe and Travis. Fell head over heels for them
Emotional ride. Hot. Intense. Dirty. Sweaty. Raunchy. Amazing

Love hot cowboys?

Thought so...

Beautiful and emotional story.

At the beginning there is a lot of kinky sex between Roe and Travis. It seems that this is all there is for these two, but then the story becomes about a person's needs and about filling those needs.

This story totally hits many kinky buttons but what makes it great is Roe and Travis and this delicate little dance they do. Travis can't just pursue Roe, cause that would make
"My name is Monroe Davis, and this is the story of how I found home."

Indeed he found! He found Nowhere Ranch! He found Travis! And in Travis's heart he found love!

This book is fabulous and there is nothing about it that I didn't like... Even Travis's roughness was exciting! Of course that, for those who don't like BDSM or rough sex, this is not the right book... But let me tell you that they are so hot together, so perfect, that I found their sex life perfect as well! And it was exactly what Ro

4.5 stars! Heidi Cullinan has quickly established herself as one of my favorite authors. This is my third book from her this year and all have been outstanding!! I love her writing style. I love her characters. In this one, I especially loved the setting being in rural Nebraska. I might have even squealed a little when Haley transferred to UNL, which is where I went to college. Go Huskers :)

I loved Roe and Travis, two kinky as hell gay cowboys. I had the biggest smile on my face when Roe walked

It was all that AND a bag of chips. I can't believe I waited so long to read it. HC is Queen Shit of Fuck Mountain.
I've read Heidi Cullihan's other books Special Deliveryand Double Blind those were pretty good...this book was great. I usually give a book five starts if I'm bawling like a three month old at the end...and this one had me there.

I absolutely loved it...what a great story.

In this book, Roe tell us the story of how he found a home in Nowhere Ranch. At the age of twenty Roe's family discovered he was gay and basically ran him out of this home, he ended up in a bad situation and went to prison. Once

I am just a little giddy over this book, and this won't be a coherent review, more like a reaction. I didn't know it was possible for something to be so raunchy and so sweet at the same time.

I giggled and blushed and even cried a little. I'm not a Mid-Westerner, nor do I have a particular interest in ranches, but I sort of want to herd some sheep now.

Roe and Travis and Haley are such wonderful, real characters, and the book tackles some serious issues, including the hatemongering and homophobia
So I talked Loederkoningin into reviewing this little gem with me. We had a blast with the buddy read and if you want to see our full review you can go here, at The Blog Of Sid Love.

I'll just share a few of our thoughts with you.

Nowhere Ranch is amazingly, shockingly good… So many memorable scenes and precious moments … in tandem we sigh contentedly. It doesn’t matter that what was left of our sensibilities was thoroughly deflowered. We understood. We cared about these two. Unfortunately, we th
First off- HOLY HOT PONY PLAY!! Yum!
Not only that, but it got my fisting! Whew. This book had all sorts of sexy in it.
Travis! He sure did know how to play!!

These two guys were seriously hot together.

Broken cowboys- Roe. Oh. Roe. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to be able to drive by that Super Eight in Algona without a small giddeup going through my mind. I wonder how she came to decide that it was placed in Algona, Iowa.

So. I loved Haley. Haley did so much to heal Roe I turn making it possi
There is so much in this book:

- family issues

- crazy religious fanatics, who think they know what's best for other people

- crazy pregnant women

- hot kinky college professors

- hot kinky cowboys

- age gap

- ponies =)

- puppies of different varieties =) =)

- babies. just plain old babies :)

Put it all together, give it a stir and - why, oh why did I not read it sooner???

4.5 stars.

Wow. Just wow. I'm not even sure what to say. I'm still trying to digest my feelings towards it. I mean, I loved the book to death. I could probably read it over and over and never get tired of it but damn! Those sex scenes were hot and borderline uncomfortable. In a good way! Lol

I love books that test my limits and Nowhere Ranch definitely does that. I'll forewarn everyone right now, if you don't like fisting you should take a pass on this book because there's definitely some of that in here al

Well, now I know what I was missing!

Ratings-wise, this is an interesting book for me to rate. Now, I don't know about all of you, but I can't silence that terrible rating voice as I'm reading. It's constantly saying things like, hmmm, that's -1 star, but +.25 for that crazy outfit! This bizarre and completely arbitrary tally starts in my head. It doesn't even matter because I usually throw it out in the end anyway (unless there are real problems with the book, in which case it comes in handy). I

Something about half-sewn-rough-around-the-edges cowboys really blows up my kindling. Mix it up with some no-holds-barred sexy force-of-nature personas and I could ride this f'ing shit all day long.

This was a rare exception in that I'm actually not a Cullinan fan..having attempted a few of her stories only to turn around with them being not my cup of watered-down tea. So this was a pleasant-surprise to say the least.

Okay, so I just last night re-read this book for the third or fourth time, and I'm thinking, I've got to go to goodreads and make absolutely damned certain I gave *this* book five stars.

I had never rated. So, let me make amends. FIVE STARS, baby.

Here's the deal with this book: it's HOT. Intense. Dirty. Sweaty. Raunchy-feed-each-other-come sexy. It totally hits all the kinky buttons until my eyes were kinda bugging out of my head. (but I loved it)

But that's not what makes this book great. What ma

hot hot hot hot hot again.

Yeah, I think we can safely say it was hot.

And it flew by in one night of intense reading.

Very well written; seriously great word-skills showing in this one. It scared me at times, and then it took me to places I had no inkling I would like to go visit. Turns out, I loved going there.

I adored the short, choppy lines, very Palahniuk, very strong language, and a really convincing MC voice. The sexing was actually off t
I'll keep this brief since I think many people feel the same way I do about some of the points below.

I liked both MC's and their relationship in the beginning, but I never cared enough about them to root for their HEA. There was nothing glaringly wrong with them but there was nothing special either. I enjoyed the first half of the book much more than the second half.

There were two major problems for me:

1. Haley. She was a little miss know-it-all that annoyed me from the first time she opened h

I cried. I never cry. What a fantastic book. Full of amazing men and women who are just about the best folks I've ever read about. I'm sure others have done fantastic reviews and waxed poetic about the characters, the setting, the way everything flows so smoothly - the way the people in this book care for each other. And the ending. Does it get any better than that? I cannot believe I waited so long to read it. Next time I do that y'all slap me o.k.???

My favorite line:

Bill was clearly trying to look down at this sleazy bastard having dirty gay sex with his little brother...

Oh yes, the gay sex was oh so dirty, in such a good way! This was a great story that I found to be unexpectedly sweet.

One thing I appreciated was the realistic portrayal of the conflict with Roe's family. I think this book comes the closest to showing how the conservative families of gay people I know have reacted to them coming out. Even so, there's one aspect I have yet t
Awilk -never sleeps-
A beautiful romance with a really big helping of kink.

If this book was just about the sex, I would have been a bit disturbed, maybe. Thankfully it wasn't. This story had many other lessons as well. Lessons about forgiveness, and regret, and most importantly, what real love means. It shows us about acceptance, for being who you are, and who other people are

Roe was a wonderfully complex man, with no self esteem. The story is wholly from his pov. I enjoyed it that way, and I wasn't sure I would. Tr
Macky ~ Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews
What a fantastic book! I've thought about reading this so many times but then because of all the reviews warning about its high level of kink and BDSM play, I've pushed it to one side and gone for something more in my usual comfort zone.

Then I saw it again , had a " what the hell " moment and finally took the plunge. Right from the moment I started to read Roe's narrative I was hooked, his voice drew me in and as soon as Travis entered the scene I was a goner. I fell for this couple big time...

You can’t say that you need to burn witches and shun gay men but eat all the pork and wear all the mixed fibers you want!

Kinky, sweet contemporary.
We get Roe's journey through his POV. There is a great deal of stereotyping here . . Gay son kicked out for being gay. Friends, family, and pastor all pray for gay son to turn away from the sin of homosexuality. Gay son leaves . . . Now, life sends Roe in tough directions where he eventually wanders to Nowhere Ranch .... and Travis . . . Let the kink

Okay, I am not sure where to start. For me this story started slow, so I left it for awhile. When I went back, I was gobsmacked by how much of a page turner it became. One of those "I could not put it down, help me I have to go to work in the morning, I am going to finish anyway" books. I'm not a stranger to Miss Culliman's work, but this one blew me away.

The story centers around Roe Davis the hired hand and Travis Loving the owner of Nowhere. Travis is a math professor that takes on the ranch

For all that is sweet and holy, I was not expecting Nowhere Ranch to be so awesmazing. I imagined cowboys, hay lifting, and all that fun stuff, but it’s what our main characters did behind closed doors that make this book shine. I gotta tell you folks my pants abandoned ship 25 pages into the book and did not return. I have ceased to go looking for them. Can I get a ‘hawt, hawt’, and a ‘bloody fucking shit’ because you will be saying both those phrases
