When Jim Darling graduates from Princeton and goes back home to Texas, he dreads everything ahead of him. He’s almost twenty-one years old, still in the closet, and has never been with a man. Though his father wants him to go to law school so he can join him in his law firm, it’s the last thing Jim wants to do.

On Jim’s first night home, during his college graduation party at his mom and dad’s ranch, he runs into his best friend’s dad, Len Mayfield, a rugged, handsome investment banker in his late thirties who rides horses and wears a cowboy hat when he’s not working as an investment banker. Len’s life isn’t much different from Jim’s. He’s been in the closet forever, he’s trapped in a marriage of convenience with a wife who cheats, and he’s resigned to his circumstances.

That is until Len runs into the grown up version of Jim Darling at the graduation party. What happens after that blossoms into something neither of them ever expected. A long seduction leads to fantastic love-making. There’s enough passion, heartache, and frustration to challenge their fragile relationship in more ways than one.

Will Jim Darling find a way to come clean with his mom and dad so he can find the happiness he’s always wanted? And will Len Mayfield find the courage to finally come out of the closet and walk away from a life that has never made him happy.

My review

OK I read a lot of good things about this book but for me it really didn't do anything for me.
I found the constant reminder that he was doing his best friends dad was annoying and the first time they are alone together was completely cringe worthy, creepy almost with how he was coming on to Jim. I found I really didn't care if they never saw each other again and Jim was the most annoying man with his sentences starting with 'ah well' and as for the sex, well I had high hopes for it being on the kinky side but no.. it was really vanilla considering at the beginning Len informed Jim he knew he wanted to be dominated. All in all this book was a disappointment so much so I could not be bothered to finish it even though I got to 83%.
