When he met Tucker, Rory couldn’t quite put his finger on what it was about him that gained his attention, but there was something.
A connection between them—a friendship that becomes more.
Neither of them had ever been interested in a man before. One thing was trying a new unexpected relationship. Dealing with the pitfalls that came with it, was another altogether.

This is a gay for you, first time gay romance with some angst thrown in.
Review by Jennifer
So first off lets start with this is part of a series, I didn't realize this until after I started to read. The mentions of previous characters and what's going on in their lives made me realize this was not the standalone it should have been. Doesn't really have any impact on Tucker and Rory's story, just there are some bits that make no sense and TBH I didn't really care about the other peoples drama since I wasn't privy to it from the start. Tucker has bought the place next door to Rory's family's farm, and is restoring it to the glory it once was. Tucker just took over his dad's hardware store, and making the leap on his own, so he is working when he can. When Rory comes over and offers an apology for a stray that may or may not have damaged the fence, the two make fast friends and Rory helps Tucker with some of the renovations. When it's pointed out to Tucker that maybe his friendship with Rory is taking a different route, Tucker ponders on it and then decides to take the leap and just out right kisses Rory. How can someone that had no desire to be with a man before suddenly want to? Will Rory be receptive to Tucker's affections? What will Tucker's family have to say about this sudden turn of events?
This was an ok story. I wanted a bit more of the build up from friendship to lovers, that sort of fell flat for me. The naughty times were really steamy though, and I did find it very entertaining with Tucker and all his questions he had for his friends. All in all I give this 3.5 stars.
