    I hate it when that happens Two very different MCs the Outback ranch life Australian cowboys, people HOTNESS, right You d think, but this was a total FAIL, and I struggled to give it even 2 stars The writing was choppy, elementary, and formulaic Some things were described in excruciating detail what supplies Caine buys at the store, sheep breeding, etc , but the actual relationship between Caine and Macklin was totally undeveloped and utterly unbelievable There was no chemistry, no stealing glances At 40 percent in, Macklin kisses Caine This comes randomly out of the blue We get only Caine s POV, so Macklin s character feels wooden We have no idea what he s thinking He s in the closet he doesn t want to bottom That s about it And Caine talks like a school marm He s so fucking polite all the time, I wanted to throttle him He s supposed to be 32, but he acts 20 Relationships are supposed to happen somewhat organically This one was like a badly arranged marriage There is no spark, followed by hot sex, followed by conflict and resolution No, instead we have Caine trying to talk Macklin into having a relationship perhaps cause he s the only other gay man in a 100 mile radius even before they have sex Gawd, who does that There s also a convoluted mystery about sabotage on the ranch that was too neatly wrapped up at the end The epilogue was unnecessary and offered nothing Total letdown.

    Loved this Inherit the Sky by Ariel Tachna, is the first book in the Lang Downs series I found a book that I loved and wanted and of It was a book I had as a 3 in my head before I read it I m a huge fan of cowboys but sometimes coming out books annoy me and it makes me want to scream because it feels like a waste of time This book was not one of those though, I did get frustrated, but not in a bad way.This book is no Bareback, this would be my thing It had no cheating and the story was better overall and had a lot less sex I found this kind of sweet in places, even when Macklin annoyed me with his behavior If you like Aussie characters you will love this one I think people that love to see a character grow could love this because there was some personal growth in this.The story started with Caine staying at his parents after a break up He was feeling down Not because he was madly in love with his ex, but because he felt like it was his fault His mother finds out her uncle died and she s his next of kin From that Caine makes the decision to fly out and run his station It s in Australia he meets Macklin Nothing happens for a while and then they kiss The kiss started a sort of relationship It was really up and down for a while Macklin frustrated me a lot, but I could also understand his reluctance to come out One of the hands Neil I wanted to beat him for so long He was an ass They do break up and that part of the book was a break from the issues they had In the end though there was something good that came from Neil view spoiler He got trapped and Caine had to rescue him He then changed his tune and said he would stick by Caine hide spoiler

    H.O.L.Y H.O.T D.A.M.N This was SO good These characters, this story, the romance just gorgeous And the sex scenes were incredible.I m completely blown away by the performance of William James, the narrator I ve never come across anyone who can do both a convincing American and Aussie accent in the same breath He was amazing.Thank goodness I ve already got the next in the series purchased from Audible.

    Ms Tachna is usually a hit and miss with me I always enjoy her plots and think she is definitely an eclectic writer but sometimes she writes to much smut for me but even with that, I still always enjoy her stories in some way.This one, however, is probably one of my favorites from her so far First the plot intrigued me but then the characters won me over If you re looking for an intense, fast moving, multiple conflict book, you won t find it here What you will find is great characters, a slow moving plot that allows you to actually know the characters and a sweet, slightly frustrating romance in the outback of Australia From the start I was interested in this story because of Caine He s insecure because he has a speech impediment that causes him to stutter uncontrollably sometimes He needs a lot of concentration to be able to talk without it but it always sneaks up on him when he s nervous, angry, aroused or any other really intense emotion Because of his disability, his life has gone nowhere There s no possibility of a promotion at his job, he just got out of a relationship where he and his lover were like roommates and his confidence in himself has been steadily plummeting for a while now Macklin is different He s a born Aussie, completely confident in himself and his capabilities but he lives a life without passion because he s in the closet I loved Caine simply because of his stutter and the way he discovers himself and his newly developed confidence but I loved Macklin because of how simple he was While he pushed Caine away, he couldn t help himself when it came to his desires for Caine which I found sweet As I said, this book doesn t have much conflict but that s one of the reason I enjoyed the story so much I was intrigued by Caine finding a place in the world where he fits and I liked seeing Macklin come to terms with himself as well It s a slow moving story but it also delves deep into the characters, who they are and some of the actions of the sheep station However, there is a bit of conflict Two, in fact, one has to do with possibly having a secret relationship and the other has to do with why and how their sheep keep running loose While I enjoyed the story very much, I still had a few problems with it For one, the story doesn t have much sex until the 75% mark which I adored, however, after that there s too much sex clustered too close together I got a little annoyed with the cluster but once I got passed it, it wasn t so bad There s also the ending, I felt like it was too rushed and too easy We get a basic answer and a resolution to a major problem but we don t get an explanation for how the conflicts were created which left me with a lot of questions in addition to the ones I already had view spoiler For instance, how was the guy who caused all these problems able to get onto the land without anyone knowing Why would he do that What did he have to gain from that How did Taylor even know Caine was gay Also, did they find all the sheep that ran loose hide spoiler

    4.75 starsA simple story A beautifully written story A not for every one story At least not for those who like drama in their m m books or want the MCs be damaged to be considered real Or cheating to be considered human after all, who never cheated on their significant other Instead, in this book, the characters have never been mentally or sexually abused, kidnapped or having PTSD Nor do they cheat They re unusual in a sense that their problems are simply having a dead end job, or affraid of the impact of them being gay on their job That they curse in Australian accent, well, it only shows that they re bloody human.The development of the characters is simply nice Why not full 5 stars view spoiler Unfortunately, it needs a too often used plot device, i.e., accident, to make the characters get together for real hide spoiler

    This was a pleasant romance I m not sure I d read the next in the series but this one had nice atmosphere I think I enjoyed it for the descriptions of the outback Caine was okay but he seemed to play much younger sometimes than his 32years which didn t work for me I also didn t really like the nickname that Macklin had for him I didn t really get angst from this or danger from the hostile neighbor It was a pretty easy going read with the only drama coming from Macklin wrestling with himself.

    Inherit the Sky is a romance set in the Australian Outback Caine, an US American, has a problem with stuttering and is stuck in a boring job His mother inherits a sheep station in Australia and Caine sees the station as a place to start over and continue his great uncle s work Caine knows nothing about sheeps and the Outback but he is determined to make the station to his home To Macklin, the gruff station forman, Caine is a soft American blow in and on top of it openly gay While Caine hopes that Macklin will help him learn how to run the station, the foreman is unwilling to give him a chance Caine works hard and is trying to fit in, even with his American accent, his stuttering and his gayness To make matters worse Macklin is deep in the closet and intends to stay that way He is sure coming out would cost him the respect of the JackaroosCaine s stuttering and determination to turn his life around made me respect him from the beginning He knows who he is and what he wants He is gentle and patient and simply adorable.I enjoyed the gentle nature of the book It s a slow moving story but it also delves deep into the characters I was intrigued by Caine finding a place in the world where he fits and I liked seeing Macklin come to terms with himself as well And I loved the Australian Outback scenery It gives the romance a little extra kick.

    One of my favorite movies is The Man From Snowy River so I was so excited about this book.I mean what could be wrong with a yummy smex book with Aussies in the Outback Well fuck.This was very unsexythe romance was forced and unbelievable even ridiculous at times It got to the point where I spoke out loud to my kindle asking it if it was kidding me They say its healthy to talk to yourself, I don t know who they are but it doesn t really matter because I was talking to my kindle Finally the last nail in the bad romance coffin was the Yaoi factor I really, really am beginning to hate the top and bottom roles in mm booksso stop.I mean it, STOP.It s not sexy having the top be all manipulative and controlling and having the bottom being all its okay cause he luuuuuuurves me.Yeah Fuck that I see enough of that shit in YA, I don t need to see it in adult books.On a lighter note the base story wasn t that bad, I might even say it would have been pretty good if the horrible romance didn t drag it down.

    3.75 StarsCaine Neiheisel leaves his dead end job in Philadelphia for an outback adventure when his mother inherits her uncle s sheep station, Lang Downs, in New South Wales, Australia Caine s stutter thankfully isn t a problem but his inexperience and sexual preference are Caine, however, is determined to honor his uncle s vision and legacy by ensuring the ranch s success No stranger to hard work and persistence, Caine slowly but surely wins the ranch hands over Unfortunately Macklin Armstrong, the foreman, should be Caine s biggest ally but his moodiness and surly attitude call that into question In the end, Caine and Macklin will have to fight prejudice and sabotage to gain their much desired HEA.I enjoyed this book The characters were well developed and the story was robust Everything is told from Caine s POV and he s a worthy narrator I liked learning about the outback through his eyes and seeing his gumption and determination first hand Macklin took some getting used to but I loved him in the end The extended cast of characters were pleasant additions as well There was a good amount of sexy, smexy scenes yum One gripe the resolution of the mystery of the saboteur It was resolved too quickly and none too neatly for my tastes I would ve like to have watched it unfold rather than just being told of its resolution Plus we aren t even told who, exactly, did it or why Bottom line a wonderful cowboy tale from down under.

    It was a nice, okay read, nothing remarkable but still able to get me through the end I liked the setting in Australia It was good to read a different setting from the USA once in a while I liked that Caine s stutters to be constant, not suddenly disappear I liked that it was part of him I did think he felt a little younger than his said 32 years old I liked Macklin just fine, but he didn t really have anything that stood him out from the rest of the gruff , strong , hard headed , cowboy foreman characters I ve read.Not so sure about the progress of Caine and Macklin as a couple I was actually surprised when the first kiss happened because I didn t feel like they had enough chemistry or sexual attraction to get to that point in the first place However, it wasn t something I would hugely complain about Oh, except for the nickname slash endearment groans The ending felt abrupt thoughI think I might check out the next book in this series.
