Up until Travis arrived on his doorstep, Charlie had lived a very solitary life. He had surrounded himself with isolation; a couple million acres of red dirt, scorching sun, and loneliness. Six months on, winter has settled over the desert, and Charlie has the life he never dreamed possible. But living and working together, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for six months straight starts to take its toll. Charlie is a stubborn, stubborn man, who tends to have more conversations in his head than what comes out his mouth, whereas Travis has no problem saying what’s on his mind. And even as they both struggle to communicate, struggle to make sense of need versus want, Charlie can see that he’s pushing Travis away – yet seems helpless to stop it. When it all boils down to whether Travis should stay or go, maybe the decision won’t be theirs to make.
Anyone who refers to Joel Leslie as a narrator grossly understates what he does with a story. He doesn’t simply recite the words on the pages, he performs them. He makes the story come alive with his passion. He sucks you into the story and brings forth every emotion of every character on the pages. And this series is filled with emotion that only Joel Leslie can radiate.
This series is now and always will be one of my absolute favorite stories. Travis and Charlie are just so…everything. I do love Travis…his stubbornness, his passion, his humor, his intelligence, his dedication to the homestead and to Charlie. But there is absolutely something about Charlie that makes him my favorite. He seems so vulnerable, while exuding confidence. He has been so hurt and just needs love but when he gets it he doesn’t know what to do with it. He shows everyone his strength while hiding what a soft, kind-hearted man he is to everyone except Travis. The times when they are alone are some of the sweetest. I love the foot hooking and nose rubbing and just plain staring into each other’s eyes. These two melt my heart.
If you haven’t read or listened to this series, you absolutely must! You won’t regret it!

She is many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things…but likes it even more when they fall in love.
She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
