McFarland’s Farm

by Cardeno C.

McFarlands Farm Cover
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.

Reviewed by Karen Lee

Lucas is a spoiled, good looking man who has never had to work for anything in his life. Growing up he attended the best schools money could buy and guys came on to him on a regular basis. He never had to work to attract a man whether the object of his attraction was gay, bisexual or even straight. His straight talk and partying attitude of only wanting a good time kept him well entertained. When his father has had enough of his over the top behavior that is now affecting his business, he sends him to work at his friend’s organic farm.

Jared has lived alone since his divorce from Lucas’ sister. They married young and although he will always love her, the love he has for her is more like that of a sibling. She calls asking for a favor. Her half-brother is out of control with his playboy lifestyle and his father wants him to get his act together. If he refuses, he will be penniless, cut off from the hard earned fortune his father has amassed over the years. He grudgingly says yes, as her father is his biggest buyer of the organic produce he grows. When Lucas arrives, he is everything that Jared remembers from the brief family parties and functions throughout the years. Handsome, confident and so sexy, Jared is breathless just looking at Lucas, wanting him instantly. But how can he even think about a relationship with Lucas? Jared doesn’t do the one night stand thing so why would such a vibrant young man want to settle down in a small town, settle for him? Maybe, that is exactly what Lucas needs….and wants.

Another great book by this talented author, I really enjoyed the characters. 4.5 stars
