Down on the Farm, a sexy, enemies-to-lovers, small town romance, is the first book in the Ames Bridge series.
After quitting his teaching job on the heels of a scandal, Beck Davis moves to the house his grandmother left him in Ames Bridge. He finds the town stifling, but it’s a quiet place to hide while he regroups. Or so he thought.
His neighbor Cal McMurtry shows up, demanding to buy Beck’s land. Cal is as infuriatingly sexy as he was ten years ago when he and his jock friends spent their summers taunting Beck.
Beck expects to hate Cal as he did back then, but Cal isn’t who Beck thought he was: he’s hardworking, passionate about revamping and diversifying his family’s farm, and—far more shocking—he’s gay, and interested in Beck.
But as much as they want each other, Beck has no intention of staying in Ames Bridge, and while Cal is technically out, he refuses to date openly. A real relationship seems doomed from the beginning, but love can be a powerful motivator for those willing to take a chance.
Cal was…fickle to put it nicely. He gave me a bit of whiplash going back and forth as he did. He wanted Beck with a passion but he wasn’t willing to be in a relationship and chance that losing business for his farm. He was downright ugly to Beck a couple of times….right after being really sweet to him. When he finally let go of his fear to live his life as he wanted, he was extremely charming and loveable toward Beck. I loved what he did at the end.
I really liked Beck but I didn’t like how quickly he was forgiving of Cal’s behavior. I feel like he was railroaded a bit by Cal and let it go too quickly. Beck’s a pretty great guy and has some great ideas he’s willing to share with Cal and even help him with to keep his farm profitable, even if he lived out and proud. I like how much he was willing to give to support Cal when he kept getting rejected.
This book was surprisingly short and with the back and forth/do I, don’t I mess with Cal we didn’t get much time with them together. I see this is going to be a series but I don’t know if that means with these guys or if the other books will be about other folks. I’m really hoping we get more of them.
