Las doesn’t date seasonal workers. Marco’s on a three-month contract.
Lassiter Windsor-March has been planning for his future for as long as he can remember and he knows exactly where that future lies: at his family’s ranch in Wyoming. What doesn’t lie in his future is a summer fling with one of the seasonal workers—they never stick around.
Even if one of those workers is the college crush he’s invited to work a summer job at the ranch.
Marco Terlizzese is as laissez-faire as Las isn’t. He might not know where he’ll be once his contract with Windsor Ranch is up, but he knows three months is plenty of time to get his long-time crush to agree to go out with him.
Amid a starry summer sky, their chemistry ignites as feelings deepen, forcing Las and Marco to decide where they truly belong.
A note from Amy Aislin:
Home for a Cowboy is about giving love a chance and discovering where you belong.
Tracing the Little Dipper with his eyes, he hugged his arms to himself, chasing off a chilled breeze that snuck under his hoodie despite the fire, and comforted himself with the possibility that maybe Las was at home right now, wherever home was, gazing out his bedroom window, or perhaps lying on his back on top of a sleeping bag next to his tent, blinking up at the same stars as Marco.
And on Marco’s face, a slack jaw, wide eyes, open staring. “How is this real?” His tone was reverent.
“It’s even better at sunset.” Las kept his voice just as soft. “The sun goes down right over there, behind that mountain.” He let a smile curl his lips. “But if we came at sunset we’d be walking back in the dark and I remember a certain someone is afraid of what lurks in the dark.”
Marco did a slow pan toward him. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
If Las’s mountains and stars couldn’t convince Marco to stay, he wasn’t sure anything could. Las would keep losing tiny parts of himself to Marco until he didn’t have anything left to give.
It would be worth it. Marco was worth much more than a broken heart.
4 of 5 Stars
This is a sweet, low angst good start to a new series.
Marco and Las have a bit of a false start (wrong sport I know) in college but remain friends. Since Marco has absolutely no idea which direction to take his life, he decides to spend the summer learning how to be a cowboy on a dude ranch…he got a bonus in spending time with Las. I love that he’s so open to learning new things and in awe of everything he learns.
Las is understandably gun shy with new relationships. He is determined to show Marco all the best Windsor has to offer in order to entice him to stay. It is sweet watching him share his heart and soul with Marco and make himself vulnerable with him.
These guys are sweet together and have amazing chemistry. The little hints of jealousy are cute too.
I loved the supporting cast and am looking forward to the rest of the series!
