Product Description

Product Description

Rusty Briggs knows his chance of finding a man while living outside of Sweetwater, Texas are slim to none. Few know about his little secret, but his ranch hands have run out on him and the folks in town aren’t as hospitable as they were before the incident. He’s resigned himself to the fact that working his ranch will have to be enough or he will need to sell and move to the big city…that is until he meets Trent Anderson.

On the outside Trent appears to be a man with full access to silver spoons and caviar dreams, but his parents cut him off and tossed him out once they discovered he was gay. After living on the street, selling himself, then ending up in a destructive relationship, Trent pulled his life together and came out on top, all by using his compassion and intelligence—or so Trent thinks. Recently, Trent’s grandfather passed away and left him his ranch, as long as he meets a few conditions, like living in Texas for ninety days. But Trent’s secret benefactor, Reed, is dissatisfied that Trent isn’t living in Atlanta and wants him back. The only issue for Reed is that Trent is involved with Rusty.

Money, greed, lust, and power work to keep Rusty and Trent apart. They are forced to trust each other when life falls apart, but can they actually become close enough in ninety days to create a solid, trusting relationship, or will old relationships come between them?

I would love to give this 10 STARS it deserves.. A fantastic book by Sara that you cant put down. A story about Trent who's inherited his grandfathers ranch but with conditions he has to live there 3 months. Thinking it would be easy he doesn't think he would meet Rusty on his first day in town. Rusty meets eyes with his new next door neighbor and instantly falls head over heals. But Rusty is not out due to the town town not being accepting.. This is a MUST READ...

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing tempting about this 10 March 2016
By Lora905 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
There were a few spelling errors (ex: state "trouper") and not very well developed characters. This entire book was built around 4 characters from start to finish: Rusty, Trent, Devin, and Reed. The book mentioned the strife that Rusty had to endure being a gay man in a small town in Texas, but there's never any instances of him going into town or having any interactions with anyone (except the one time he went to Devin's office in the very beginning). We have nothing to go off of but the writer's word. Trent's past was relayed in conversations; there were no flashbacks to his youth, his bad relationship(s), being kicked out, there wasn't even any interaction between him and the shelter. It didn't even tell when his parents passed Once he got to Sweetwater, the book was completely centered on he and Rusty. When Reed was introduced and thought he could sweep Trent off his feet, it was a little crazy. For the same thing to keep happening repeatedly was ridiculous and made no sense. For Trent & Rusty to keep allowing him to come back, therefore letting it happen repeatedly, was stupid and made me mad.

What was also maddening was that Ms. York seemed to realize that there had been practically no drama, nothing interesting (even the sex was mundane) and then at 90% decided to throw in a bunch of monkey wrenches. First there was the situation with Trent's grandfather's will, with its extra added stipulations and whether or not Trent would be able to go back home (Trent supposedly was so miserable he'd considered leaving town); then with the run-in with the guy from Rusty's past and the subsequent misunderstanding/falling out; the incident with the 2 guys on the side of the road and the Twilight Zone state trooper. All that crammed into the last 10% was just a mess.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice book. 1 November 2015
By MRS M D ATTENBOROUGH - Published on

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books, I ws gifted my copy of this book for review.

Trent has to stay in Sweetwater for 90 days to gain the inheritance his bigoted grandfather left him. He planned to stay, sell up and go. But that was before he met Rusty, his neighbour. His hot, sexy neighbour who does things to him that no one ever has before.

Can Trent be really in happy in the place that holds so many painful memories?

I'm left with one word, and one only, nice.

It was a nice book, with nice characters, its nicely written. I just can't think why I'm left thinking nice though!

I didn't find a connection to Trent nor Rusty. I didn't like that, although mentioned from time to time, there was no visit to town, no incident or meeting that caused issues for the men. I was expecting something to happen in town, because of the way some minor characters acted when Trent turned up, but there wasn't any, and I wanted it, I think the book would benefit from it.

I even thought Reed was nice, after he got over his blip for Trent.

Some people will love this book, but unfortunately, I can't.

Sorry, but I did like it!

3.5 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars for Tempted in Texas 6 November 2015
By Carra at Making it Happen blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The first word that pops into my head to describe Tempted in Texas is definitely "sweet". And while there are aspects of the story that I could have done without, overall I found this to be a good read that I would recommend to others who are fans of the genre.

The best part of the story? Rusty. He is far and away my number one character, and his emotions and actions (along with his hot and sexy self) make him a keeper for any book boyfriend shelf no matter who you are. While he does seem to fall really fast for Trent (they both fall really fast for each other actually), the depth of caring he shows-especially when he continually emphasizes to Trent that Trent is the one in charge-and his thoughtfulness demonstrate just how wonderful he is.

As for Trent, at times he seemed a bit too timid and more twink than I usually care for in an M/M story, but the way he is written and how his character and Rusty's interact and bond make it so that this personality type works for this story.

But when it comes to the predominant secondary character of first his character's introduction into the mix was fine, but after a while with his repeated insistence on trying to come between Rusty and Trent and everyone getting wound up and then defusing again...and just started wearing on me by the time I was done reading. And the addition toward the end of Rusty's every-now-and-then hookup Edan just felt like a bit too much to me.

I do wish we could have seen more of a conclusion with the terms of Trent's grandfather's will stipulations, and whether the getaway ranch/camp plans he was considering would come to fruition. It felt like the ending was a bit rushed without complete closure to the things that were brought up within the story.

This was a 3.5-star read for me, but would have been higher with a more satisfying ending (and less Reed and no Edan). This is for the 18+ M/M romance fans as it does contain adult M/M sexual content. Oh, and please don't hog Rusty once you read this...I'm claiming regular visitation rights ;-)

Reviewed for Lustful Literature

When I started reading I was quickly pulled into the story. I really loved the premise and was eager to see how it would all play out. Rusty being a cowboy living on a ranch, longed to have someone to share his life with. Living in a small town that doesn’t support homosexuality was really prevalent within the story. When Trent, a city boy in his fancy pants and fancy car comes into town looking to fulfill his grandfather’s terms on his estate, things get a lot more interesting for Rusty.

What I loved about this story was the idea that Trent’s grandfather thought if he put in some ridiculous stipulation into his will that it would fix Trent. Like forcing him to live on the ranch if he wanted his money was somehow going to make him ungay. And Trent thinking it would be a quick 3 months where he’d come out of it the same man he was going into it. What I loved the most was the fact that Trent’s grandfather had it half right. Trent did change but not in the way he would have liked.

I really loved Rusty’s character. I loved that he was patient and always aware of Trent’s insecurities. He never pushed more than Trent would give and was always supportive. They have some unbelievable chemistry, and even though their relationship starts out pretty quickly their connection was believable. I really loved them together.

What started out strong for me unfortunately took a turn and I found myself losing interest. When conflict arises and people from their past start to show up, I just had a hard time buying how easily things were just over looked or forgiven. The way things were resolved just didn’t work for me. It was just too nice, too easy, to clean. When I think about real life and how most people would handle situations like that it just didn’t sit right with me with how it unfolded in the story. The ending totally put me off and not because it wasn’t sweet because it was it just didn’t fit in the moment. This very well can be a case of it’s me not you as I’m sure many fans of Sarah’s writing will enjoy this. There are many things I loved within the story but it just didn’t completely work for me.

Save a horse and ride a cowboy? Well I guess that’s what Trent did when he is forced to live ninety days in Texas on the ranch his bigoted grandfather has bequeathed him subject to him adhering to the conditions set. There he meets his kindly neighbour Rusty who also happens to be a sexy as hell cowboy and gay. Result!

Rusty has been managing on his smaller ranch on his own due to his workforce leaving when they found out he was gay. Rusty doesn’t venture much into town or mingle with the townsfolk, he doesn’t need that kind of attention. But when he sees the guy in the flash car arrive at the neighbouring ranch he feels a need to go and support him. Especially as he has no electricity, furniture or food and drink. But once he lays eyes on the man he is hooked to wanting more in return from Trent.

I did like this sweet storyline and the relationship of Rusty and Trent. There wasn’t much drama which I have come to expect when a story is set in Texas where the drama tends to be about the bigotry of the locals. None so much in this book, in fact Rusty and Trent do not venture into town much at all. However trouble does come looking for them in the shape of Reed, Trent’s rich friend from Atlanta. I was a little confused about Reed as he came across as a likable, rich sexy older guy but then the storyline made me think maybe he is not meant to be that. It just got a little confusing as to his part in the story – the nice older guy or a jealous leech. I also thought the second incident with him was just a repetition of the first so the story kind of got caught in a loop which had me scratching my head. Another instance was when Rusty’s old hook up turned up which was a little predictable.

For me I would have liked to have had more angst and drama interwoven with the sweet that was Rusty and Trent, as they were definite winners.

As I say a lovely sweet romance, light on the drama but heavy on the love between two lost beautiful men. Three and a half stars.
