Audio Book Tour: McFarland's Farm by Cardeno C.
McFarland's Farm: Hope, Book 1
Length: 2 hrs and 34 mins
Publisher: The Romance Authors, LLC
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.
This looks like it will be the first instalment in a series based around the town of Hope, population 3000. I really enjoy reading the M/M genre and this was a great quick read.
Jared lives on his farm, growing produce for his growing list of clients. This is something he knows and loves doing. When his ex-wife calls him to tell him that her step brother Lucas is coming to stay for a couple of weeks, that it will be a favour to her father, he reluctantly agrees to it.
Jared has always been attracted to Lucas but the version that steps off the bus is a whiny, spoilt and full of self entitlement Lucas. This is going to be tougher than he first thought. He is still really good looking though so I guess there is that.
Lucas is fuming about being sent to a farm and the small town of Hope. Jared soon puts him to work sorting out his home office, which will free him up more to work his farm.
There is a mutual growing attraction between these two and when they finally admit what they both are feeling things get really hot between them. I love that this was a slow building realisation between them, nothing felt rushed. Jared is not a one night stand kind of guy and when he is with someone, it's because he wants to know them and give himself fully. This is a new experience for Lucas who has never been a relationship kind of guy but he wants to with Jared.
I enjoyed this hot sexy story and give it 3.5 stars
