Download Epub Format ê No Going Home PDF by ê T.A. Chase Another novel, set in the world of the cowboy, about homosexual love at this point I m wondering if all the cowboys are gay Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx, Bareback by Chris Owen, The Tin Star by J.
L Langley the examples are increasing By the way I have read of a new reality in which a girl has to live with a bunch of beautiful cowboys, gay and not, and her goal is not to fall in love with the wrong cowboy But this romance, like the others I have mentioned, is a tender and enthralling novel Les and Randy are characters that s hard to classify According to the common standards Les would be the alpha male and Randy the beta, but has their story develops and Randy growsself aware and confident in his strength, parts seem to exchange Les comes from a wealthy and happy family of the East Before the accident he was a good looking and well mannered guy, with a tall and slim figure and even now that he carries the scars from the terrible accident that ended his career, his carriage and manners still distinguish him amid a crowd But his handsome former partner has abandoned him telling him that he was useless , and that s why Les developed a sense of inadequacy Randy instead is the typical cowboy, quick and muscular he rides bronco horses , with his swarthy sunburnt face, he is not attractive in a standard way Also he is as screwy as an abused thoroughbred, and he has to learn to trust once again, or even better to start trusting somebody At first Randy is the one, rejected by his family and society, looking for shelter in Les arms But Les protective and reassuring attitude, hides a past of pain and rejection Randy is an outcast because of his homosexuality, Les, since he has being physically injured Two lost souls who meet and share their loneliness Les healing is almost completed , his bruised soul is recovering and he is ready to love again Randy still aches for his father s rejection and he is indifferent to everything Because his father didn t accept him, he his sure that no one else will, so he guard himself by being in the closet But when he meets Les, he slowly understands that life can be somethingthan clandestine meetings, and little by little he leaves the shades But his way will be long and difficult, but Les is waiting for him and supporting him Les doesn t push him, he doesn t force him to come out he understands that as his wounded horses need time to heal physically and trust men again, Randy needs time to experience love, again And when finally Randy starts coming out from his shell, he understands that Les also has an extreme need of love, and he is ready to satisfy such it.

As I ve said many times before, I cannot enjoy a book if I can t emotionally connect to the characters or the story.
And I cannot emotionally connect to one dimensional characters, which was the case here Everything was way too black and white the good guys were flawless, the bad guys were evil, and there was no in between That is just so boring to me I read almost half of the book and found it almost painfully dull.
I heard that the book gets better after the one character goes back on the rodeo circuit I can t even remember his name, that s how memorable this book is but I just don t think I can hold out to see It is within the realm of possibility that I ll eventually come back to this and finish it, but probably not likely This is the second T.
A Chase book I ve abandoned without finishing the other being Allergies so I m thinking he s just not for me.
Six Years Ago, A Hoof To The Head Ended Leslie Hardin S Show Jumping Career And His Relationship With The Man He Loved Broken, Hurt, And Rejected, Les Has Focused His Energies On Rebuilding His Life Les S Accident Has Shown Him That The Most Valuable Treasures Are Usually Found Under An Imperfect Surface, And His Reputation For Taking In Strays Starts To Grow But It S One Of These Strays In Particular, Injured Rodeo Cowboy Randy Hersch, Who Captures Than Just His Compassion Between His Disapproving Father And His Chosen Career Path, Randy Has Always Felt The Need To Deny His Passion But When Les Takes Him Under His Wing, Randy Begins To Realize That He Is Truly Strong Enough To Admit His True Self To Himself And The Rest Of The World But In The Arms Of A Broken Man, Can He Find Acceptanced Love Towards the middle I started to skip huge passages of this book The sex was repetitive, same old, same old and frankly down right boring Take out the sex and we re left with a story with a weak plot, little by way of characterisation and, er, very little else.
A great shame as I was so looking forward to a cowboy read and luckily it was on sale in the Kindle store for only 1, so I didn t really waste my money Can t say I ll be looking up the others in the series anytime soon.
Oh dear I think I am going to have to put T.
A Chase s books on the buy with caution shelf rather than the automatic purchase shelf I am finding her books a bit hit miss With No Going Home, I felt as if I had been dumped into the story half way through the book there was so much background character building missing from the first half of the story that I became frustrated with the leaps of intuition I had to make to gloss over the plot holes added to that was the deadly INSTA LOVE which is usually a turn off for me unless the author is truly gifted this book missed the mark I gave up after reading 50% of it Well damnI just checkedto see when I purchased this book the price has dropped by 5 to 99c perhaps indicative of the quality of the work This was pretty ridiculous I was tempted to give up but powered through because of a challenge No Going Home is the story of Les, a super perfect, rich cowboy who had suffered a massive injury He likes to collect and rescue broken horses and people He meets Randy broken cowboy and they go from exchanging scowls to boners and instalove in the matter of a few pages It s all baby, baby, baby and tight cowboy butts from that point on The way these guys talked felt off I m not sure if it was the cadence of the dialogue, that American spellings weren t used, or just the OTT fluffiness of it all, but it came off as very inauthentic to me I m really picky about westerns though, so I may be judging too harshly The only thing that I found tolerable was the sex I can appreciate erotica for the sake of erotica, and there was plenty of that in this book Les s dirty talking was hot I ll admit, the phrase come on my cock casts a magical lady boner spell over me But even the sex got repetitive and tedious.
I can t say I d recommend this one.
I m mostly just glad it s over I m free I love T.
A Chase s writing and I love cowboys, so I thoroughly enjoyed this story Very sympathetic characters, not much angst, enough background details I really liked it.
I didn t like Tony, though I mean it s not that I hated him or something, but in my opinion he s like a third wheel in Les and Randy s relationship and though he s a loyal friend and wouldn t make a move on Les, his presence on the ranch still feels kinda uncomfortable for me I sure wouldn t want my friend who has not so secret hots for my boyfriend frequently visit us I know the second book from the series is about him and I intend to read it, so I ll try to abstract from my impression, because he s a good character per se, I just don t like him with Les and Randy.
If you enjoyed The Tin Star by J.
L Langley, then you will definitely enjoy this The story is about a rodeo rider, Randy, taken in after an injury by his neighbor Les Randy s father will have nothing to do with him because he s gay Of course, Les and Randy begin to have feelings for one another But, can Les overcome a tragedy in his past that is keeping him from opening his heart to Randy The story isn t that orginal, but it is well written, and the author makes a reader care for the characters Plus, the background story on Les makes him interesting and very three dimensional Randy s sister adds a good bit of humor to the tale as well If you love cowboy romances, don t pass this up 2.
5 StarsThis one was o kay The story was angst free with lots of sex Sounds great, right Well, not really Not for me It was kind of dull It s sad because I really liked both Les and Randy I even enjoyed the extended cast of characters I hope Tony gets his HEA I love a story about unconventional families and family life in general This one had that in spades But the story was pretty much sex, squirt, cuddle, ranch stuff sex, squirt, cuddle, ranch stuff rinse and repeat I, for one, would have liked a littleangst or action or umph or something It was too vanilla and easy as pie I think T.
A Chase can write a great m m romance this one just fell short.
Bottom line this book had potential but the lack of angst action made it boring for me.
A Chase I really enjoyed this read and it was one of my favourites for a long time with memorable characters and the right amount of story and romance I find it very hard to read a good cowboy story with no cheating or major flaws This was an angel for me and I can t be happier that I read it.
Randy and Les worked well together and it was nice seeing the two of them interact As far as one lover beingexperienced than the other it was one of the best I have read Most stories leave me in question of how far one has gone or sometimes both This was open with that and we know both had experienced some things And also a first together in the way of love being reciprocated.
I loved the back story to both MC s They were alike in a lot of ways and had experiences in different areas which made them a great couple and helped build up an actual story There were quite a few villains in this and they were well portrayed, that is all I will say about them Not much could be said without giving too much away.
I loved the women of the story Margie and Tammy were funny and added some good female characters to the story A lot of m m has bad female secondary s and it can get weary after a while I did enjoy getting deeper into the characters and their past s It would have been nice to seeof one, but I won t complain.
