London stockbroker Jasper Randolph flies to Jackson Hole with hopes as high as the Grand Tetons. Hope that the getaway will force him to let loose, get dirty, and overcome a deep-seated phobia about horseback riding. He hadn’t counted on an attraction to the dude ranch owner’s son, a man with sun-tousled hair, eyes bluer than Wyoming skies…and a father who’d rather eat tofu than accept his only son’s sexuality.

The moment Calum lays eyes on the uptight, buttoned-down Brit, he’s lost. But with his own saddlebags full of emotional baggage, he knows he should be looking at anything but Jasper’s spotless riding boots and tight-fitting jodhpurs. Trouble is, Jasper makes his heart buck like a wild horse trying to break free. Despite the differences that set them oceans apart, they fall hard and fast. Trouble isn’t far behind, and they’re in for a rocky romantic ride. Especially since there’s growing evidence that someone is willing to do anything—no matter how dangerous—to poison their love.

My review

This is a really intense story about 2 men trying to to be who they are rather then who circumstance and family have made them.
The tension and chemistry is what keep this story going and the suspense element is strong if a little out there times. Not the actual plot points but the tolerance of Jasper for the crap that goes on around him. I found some of his acceptance a little unrealistic and I don't think it help the story any that he allowed himself to be treated like that. I also liked that the ending was hard fought for and nothing came easy it made it more believable and meant I forgave it some of it's issues. Would I recommend this.... Absolutely I would the journey is one worth taking.
