McFarland's Farm: Hope, Book 1
McFarland’s Farm is an easy, sweet and sexy read.
Lucas has gotten into hot water one to many times with his father. He’s being cut off. He doesn’t have much of a choice but to go to Hope and stay with a family friend, Jared. That’s the only way he has a chance at getting his credit cards back.
Jared spends his days farming and his nights alone. When he’s asked to take Lucas in for a while, he can’t say no. Both of these men have known one another for a while. Both are secretly attracted to one another....
Jared and Lucas couldn’t be more different if they tried. Where Jared is quiet, respectful, hardworking, sweet and humble, Lucas is slightly obnoxious, bratty, snobbish and doesn’t know a thing about hard work because he’s been spoiled rotten. Seems like an unlikely pair, right? Yeah. I thought so too. When they say opposites attract, they aren’t kidding.
I thought Jared was wonderful from the start. There was nothing I didn’t love about him. Lucas, not so much. It took me a long while to warm up to him. Being with Jared changed him. Slowly, little by little, he became a better man. I liked seeing that growth in him.
I listened to the audio book, and I have to say that the narrator did a fantastic job alternating the ‘voices’ of Jared and Lucas. It suited each of their personalities.
This was a sweet romance with just enough steam to balance out the sweet. As much as I enjoyed it, my main complaint is that it was much too short. It ended too soon and I wanted more.
Wealthy, attractive Lucas Reika treats life like a party, moving from bar to bar and man to man. Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father's demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father's money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar.
Quiet, hard-working Jared McFarland loves his farm on the outskirts of Hope, Arizona, but he aches to have someone to come home to at the end of the day. Jared agrees to take in his longtime crush as a favor. But when Lucas invades his heart in addition to his space, Jared has to decide how much of himself he's willing to risk and figure out if he can offer Lucas enough to keep him after his father's punishment is over.
