Blurb: Not all cowboys ride horses.
Jeremy Craig is on the cusp of being named the deputy prime minister of Australia. Which means he’s got to play his cards right and stay deep in the closet. Australia is a lot of things, but there’s no way the country is ready for a gay prime minister. So far, it’s been an easy ruse to maintain. Until he meets Ryan Taylor. Then all bets are off.
Ryan is sick of the Brokeback Mountain jokes. For starters, he’s an Australian stockman, not an American cowboy. For another, he spends most of his working days alone in a helicopter, not on the back of a horse. As Wallaby Ridge’s only contract heli-musterer, he gets to escape any small-town scorn high in the sky. He’s happy up there. Lonely, but happy. Who needs passion and wild sexual pleasure in their life when they have the boundless skies of the Outback, right?
Then Jeremy Craig climbs into his chopper…
Warning: This book may change your opinion of politicians. It also contains scorching, no-holds-barred passion between two alpha men, one with a Ryan Gosling fetish and the other with a secret deeper than the ocean. Yes, it’s that complicated.
Review: Bare for You is a hot tale of a rough-around-the-edges outback pilot and a prim-and-proper government official who clash in the best of ways. You just know that innuendos will fly and feathers ruffle.
I really enjoyed this book! Even with the subject matter of a closeted politician wanting to keep his sexuality under wraps, the book stayed light and airy—maybe because all of the hot sex and a really sappy HEA, and that’s all right with me!
Ryan Taylor is a pilot in the Australian outback. He is out but lonely. Jeremy Craigh is the closeted politician with dreams of one day being the Prime Minister of Australia. He’s spending a week in the outback doing public relations for his post. When Jeremy steps off that plane, Ryan’s world is turned upside down. To Jeremy, Ryan is his walking wet dream, and he’s not sure how he is going to survive the week.
The storyline follows the usual guidelines, but it was very well written. The lust-to-love scenario, even though it’s a fantasy, was very sweet and I was totally hooked. I loved Ryan and Jeremy together. Ryan took charge of every situation he was in. I loved his cocky attitude. Jeremy on the other hand was very reserved, but he had to be in his line of work, and showed his adventurous side when the clothes were off! In the end he followed his heart, and it was the perfect HEA!
Bare for You is an entertaining story of love in the outback. If you have a need for a sexy Aussie cowboy hooking up with a “straight” laced politician, with hot sex and witty banter thrown in, then this story will hit the spot.
