Love will grow through the cracks you leave open.
Ranch hand Roe Davis absolutely never mixes business with pleasure—until he runs into his boss, Travis Loving, at the only gay bar within two hundred miles.
Getting involved with the ranch owner is a bad idea, but Roe’s and Travis’s bedroom kinks line up against one another like a pair of custom-cut rails. As long as they’re both clear this is sex on the side, no relationship, no interfering with the job, they could make it work.
Shut out by his family years ago, Roe survived by steadfastly refusing to settle into so much as a post office box. As his affair with Travis grows into more than just sex, Roe’s past catches up with him, threatening the thin ray of happiness he’s found, reminding him it’s well past time he went on his way.
But even a loner gets lonely, and at this point, there’s nowhere left to run. The shame and sorrow of what he’s lost will stay with Roe wherever he goes—until he’s ready to let love lead him home.
This novel has been previously published and has been revised from its original release.
I read this book when it first came out back in 2011. It was early in my M/M reading and I loved how the BDSM and kink aspect of Roe and Travis’ relationship made it deeper. I loved this book then. Now, it reminds me of how amazing this book was, and still is. Roe is so broken but he is loyal and has a pure heart. Travis is broken in his own way, but loves deeply. These two meeting and coming together is both kinky/sexy, and beyond beautiful. Heidi Cullinan writes amazing stories that bring you in from the first word. All of the characters that live on Nowhere Ranch come alive on the page. You feel as if you truly know them and they’re family be the end of the book. Seeing Roe and Travis get a full and complete happily ever after is worth every minute of the pain they go through to get there.
There’s a completely awesome playlist for the book you can check out on Spotify. See it here.
