The Tin Star

The Tin Star (Ranch #1) by J.L Langley
Novel: 300pages
4 out of 5

James Killian learns the hard way that smaller towns are full of bigots. When he comes out to his father he is not only kicked out of his home but off the Quadruple J where he works as the ranch foreman. With nowhere to go and little money, his savior comes in the unlikely form of his older brother’s best friend, the man he’s been in love with for over half his life.

Ethan Whitehall is a successful rancher and a well respected man in his community. His ranch the Tin Star has been in Ethan’s family for generations and affords him a certain prestige and power in the small town he calls home. Ethan knows without a doubt that all of that could shatter if his sexual orientation were to ever become public. But when he learns his best friend’s younger brother’s banishment and the reasons behind it, Ethan can’t help but get involved. He’s always had a soft spot where Jamie Killian was concerned, and it may very well be his downfall.

So you know I am a huge fan of J.L Langley, her books are all kinds of awesome. While this one not being my fave, it still manages to give me butterflies in the tummy. Its deeply sexual and emotionally rich and I enjoyed it.

Jamie Killian decides he is going to be bold and come out to his father and brother, he never expected it to go down the way it did. With his dad throwing him out the house and all but disowning him. So with no where to go and feeling helpless, Jamie regrets his decision and it is pretty clear that he just effed up his life. Jamie is sincere though, he never wanted to hide from who is, though the outcome was bad he feels lighter.

In this town of cowboys and tractors being gay is not something to be telling the folks about. It’s all manly men that ranch and ride horses y’all. Nobody knows that better than Ethan Whitehall. When he gets a call from his best friend who is saying that his younger brother just got kicked off the ranch, instantly he is sympathetic and he offers a little help that comes in the form of a job and a place to live. Well Jamie wants no charity, but he does convince him that his help is required and then begins the relationship. Well Ethan has known Jamie pretty much all is life, and the annoying boy who use to follow him around is gone, a strikingly sexy man is now in his place and he cannot deny his attraction to the boy 'pffft' man.

Jamie has always wanted Ethan and his wish seems to be coming true, when a lustful kiss leads to other things (by things I mean cock in, “oh am I saying too much”). Things don’t remain peachy for the guys, the whole town suspects their relationship and possibly might be trying to kill them. Run in with store clerks, ranch hands and bullets is telling them all they need to know, homosexuality is not welcomed.

Everyone isn’t so bad, there are a few who have known the guys and wont let a thing like sexuality push them to disown their friends. The worst of the bunch is Jamie’s dad, he is so vile and assholish, I wanted to stick a pitch fork up that extreme tight ass of his. What a prick! Overall did enjoy this book, Jaime and Ethan are a dream, to sexy guys getting it on is my idea of a perfect day. The sex was hot and the relationship dynamic between E&J was super hot. I love the whole cowboy lifting hay, riding horses and rounding up cattle to be extremely sexy 'plus' they are gay, that’s alright in my book.
