2 stars - maybe less. I really liked a short story I read by this author, so thought to give the longer format a try. Not impressed. Not much to this one really. I liked the story line ... a young female bullrider and an older man -- small town northwest. Sounded good for a change, so why not. It started good and had some hot romance, but about half way through, the story became tedious and the only real difference was an increase in the kink factor.Erotica, if in a good story, I'm fine with and enjoy. Sex for the sake of ... doesn't interest me at all. So, unless you want to read something with little creativity, but a whole lot of thoughtless sex [and not particularly good at that], then I'd stay away from this one.Happy Reading with the caveats above!
