At first I was like a vegan cowboy? Really? but it works. Dell was in a career that could be hazardous to his health in many ways. When a beloved pet dies, he decides that it was time to leave that career and go to the ranch.
With the help of his bestie, Paisley, they make his dream of a vegan/vegetarian restaurant on his ranch. A year after he opened the eatery he meets Pace. From there, the two fall hard and they fall fast. Their love forms during a time in this country where the GLBT community was on pins and needles waiting for the Supreme Court to make their decision. Pace stays with Dell through the storm and shows him how much being with man really is like.
I won’t say what my favorite part is, but I will say it is the last chapter and epilogue.
I have never read anything by Ms. Logan before, but I have to say, after reading this book, I will definitely give her books a read.
