    Great contemporary m/m romance with a coming out theme that is rich with the atmosphere of America's deep South.Musician Gary returns to his aunt's old farmhouse in North Carolina, to escape a bad relationship and a paralysing case of stage fright. He's quickly noticed by Chuck Everett, a deeply-closeted local farmer and businessman whose family have a contract to harvest the pecan orchard on Gary's property. Gary resists Chuck's attentions but their mutual interest in music throws them together [...]

    The first half of the story was slow and sort of never went anywhere. It was only when Tally arrived on the scene that things got interesting and angsty. Gary and Chuck were an unusual couple, no real connection at first. Chucks attitude "I want you but not in public scenario" got on my nerves, the constant indecisiveness was a pain. Gary really did deserve better, Chuck did grow on me a little bit towards the end. I enjoyed the latter half of the book more, the pace picked up. Tally was great f [...]

    This book took me a while to get into reading it. The first half of the book was slow going. I started to enjoy it more and it started picking up towards the end of the book, but then everything seem to quickly be thrown together and resolved. I think I would have liked it more if the author had taken the time towards the end (when the pace picked up) to really go deeper in resolving the issues.

    Well written and good world building but compared to the slow pace of the book the last chapter felt like several chapters cramped into one.I had big problems with Chuck - one of the MC`s.I really hate hot-cold treatment in a relationship and keeping a lover at arm`s lenght - and he did it galore.Not my thing - not my book.

    Gary is a professional musician originally from a small town in the South but living in Chicago now. Not much holding him in Chicago - his closeted lover is dating women to make his family happy, he is sleeping on friends' couches, and his career is stalled since he suffers from crippling stage fright. So when his aunt dies and leaves him a farm back in North Carolina, he packs up and moves back home. Chuck moved back home to North Carolina from Atlanta after college to help out his father. Olde [...]

    This was my first foray into reading Cooper West and I wasn’t disappointed. I was bit unsure how the story was going to work out, which was a nice change of pace – there was sufficient back-story at the beginning, and the empathy and connection with the main character, happened immediately. One musician with severe stage fright inherits a home in the back country in North Carolina. He arrives with nothing to his name and without any type of future planned. While he settles into his new place [...]

    I liked this book it was an interesting insight into life in the rural South I also very much enjoyed time that MC spent in Lower Forthy but the end seemed a little rushed.I must say that I liked Tally, Gary's manager and friend, he's a real gem :)) he made me laugh

    Sorry this will be brief. Picked this up on a rec from MandyM, having a hankering for something contemporary, non-kink and just about people. Glad I did. This tells the courtship of a couple of guys who could be your neighbors, except they are in the deep South, with all of the sensibilities there, both loving their roots and struggling against them. The story is set against a backdrop of music, bluegrass/roots music, and both protags are musicians. The entire story is well done, with very real [...]

    For me personally, the story suffers from its rather slow pace in the beginning but rather rushing (and I think rather inconclusive) towards the end. Also, I always prefer to have stories that tied up a little nicely, and it's not really what I feel with this. Sure there is a hint on what's to come, and what path that the two guys are taking, but the ending is a bit abrupt. On top of that, I'm not very sympathetic towards one of the main MCs, Chuck. I think he's a prick, for keeping Gary at arm' [...]

    I really liked this story, the plot was well developed and truly pulling from the start till the end. I admit, I wished it was longer. Because the end felt rushed and unsolved To be specific, there was an huge emotional fight between Gary and Chuck at the end and then it was resolves so abrupt that somehow it didn't feel realistic. I understand Chucks behavior and support it, too, but even so it didn't feel right. Maybe if there was a sequel after this book I would understand it!Overall it was r [...]

    For me this book had a bit of a slow start and it took me some time to get into it. As I read it I realised that I was really enjoying the slow pace and the exploration of the characters. I enjoyed the setting of the story (deep south) and the complex history of the characters. Their lives, the place and the music, all come together to make a gentle love story. The story is itself like a piece of music, starting slowly and quietly, but then building up into a crescendo which completes the story [...]

    The pace of this book really did start a bit too slow for me and took some time to really get into it. I did like the story premise and the characters, so I'm glad I kept with it. This book had a lot of potential, and although I liked it, I would have liked it more if the pacing went better. Overall, this was an enjoyable book for a lazy afternoon, it offered enough tension and dynamics, while still allowing for an effective HEA.

    3.5 Stars. I really enjoyed the story, I just wish it would have continued instead of ending where it did. I loved Tally even though I thought he was a she when Gary was talking about him, go figure. Great plot, maybe there will be a sequel.

    Not a big fan of Chuck, or Gary, but the music part was cool, even if I have no clue about the genres, not my thing.

    In short: Snapshot of Southern living with believable characters and situations caught in an undercurrent of violence and mutual passion. Highly recommended. In full: The blurb doesn't do this story half justice. Chuckie, at first encounter, has a crouching tiger, hidden dragon vibe, due to being the closeted son of the close knit area's patriarch. He is fascinating, potentially deadly, and he's about to go off. My first thought was "Run, Gary, run!" because Gary is an out-of-touch ex-Southern b [...]

    Hmm - what to say about this book. I felt like it was just picking up when all of a sudden - BAM - book's over. What? What happened? I think the MC was in the middle of a sentence even. I feel like this book was like a 4 cylinder car and you have the gas pedal floored but the speedometer just creeps up bit by bit but yes, eventually you get the car up to a good speed and you're enjoying it and the wind is tossing your hair around, then WHAM! You hit a light post and the ride's over.So yes - whil [...]

    This review was written for MM Good Book Reviewsgoodbookreviews.wordpressGary was bouncing from pillar to post, sleeping on friends’ couches, subsisting as a studio musician when his aunt leaves him property in North Carolina. Stage fright has kept him from moving to the next level in his career. There’s really nothing keeping him in Chicago, since he and his part-time closeted ex-lover parted ways. So, with little more than the shirt on his back, Gary goes home.I’ve come to expect a well- [...]

    For some time in this story, there was just a little bit to much back and forth for my liking, to be 100% perfect, but it's close, and a very VERY good book! It was one of those stories that sneak up on you, quietly crawling along - you'd never suspect to be already too deep in to stop - and then… already over. I was really dissapointed not because there was anything bad, but because I wanted to read more! I'd really have loved to read on, but - to be fair - the story was told, the ending poin [...]

    I enjoyed the book and I liked the characters a lot. I'm not from the south, but I grew up in (and moved away from) a small town much like this one. My gay friends there are just about as in the closet as Chuck is here. I didn't like that he kept Gary at arm's length and a secret, but I could understand it.The cover is a bit deceiving, since it looks like the guys are very young, which doesn't really interest me. Fortunately, Gary is 30 and Chuck is ln his late thirties. The music/blugrass scene [...]

    Had trouble feeling connected to the main characters or their romance. Very much got the "you are the only gay man in town, so let's shack up" vibe. Never felt like I really knew Gary or Chuck as people or why they were even attracted to each other let alone why they fell in love. Also, the ending is a bit abrupt. However, despite all that, I did think it was a generally enjoyable read. I liked the secondary character Talley the best of anyone; he was actually quite amusing. I also liked the mus [...]

    So, why no other books of this length? I finished an immediately went searching for another wonderful book from this author, but alas! alack! = zero. Everything else on is short story length.damnation! Anyway, loved the bluegrass/jazz theme, the unfolding of Chuck's story and emergence from the closet, and most everything else about this book.Hope author is considering a sequel; a bit of an abrupt ending, although I felt all the story lines were wrapped up, I simply wanted more! Definitely had [...]

    I really enjoyed this book. I originally bought it because it was in the music genre of m/m but it wasn't my typical rockstar book that I love so much. Regardless of that, it was a sweet story that grabbed my attention and made me care about the characters. I liked the author's writing style, descriptions and dialogue - it all felt real and truthful to how things happened. I would love to see more of Chuck and Gary.

    Elianara
    A really sweet story about a struggling musician who inherits a house and moves because he really doesn't have an other choice. A new place brings new people into his life, and his muse starts working on a whole new level. The only thing I didn't like in the book, was the ending. It was a bit of sudden, and odd. It didn't really resolve any of the issues brought up in the relationship between the two main characters.

    Jae Moran
    The book has a great southern feel, right down to the constant double and triple speak that is so much a part of the culture. I almost loved it, right until the ending, which is a little abrupt and seems unfinished. The story would have greatly benefited from a final chapter, maybe covering a little of Gary and Chuck settling into life together and their first tour stops. A resolution to the stage fright storyline would have been appreciated since its so woven into the entire book.

    Kristy Maitz
    The book is written very very well. I like both main characters which are pulling you into there life from start. Humor in included and I love it. But I can't gave the book are 5 points because the ending is like someone would take scissors and cut the ending out. I felt like writer is making fun of readers with ending like that.

    Jenni
    An enjoyable read, loved all the music and the bluegrass jam evenings. Some really good supporting characters, particularly Tally and Fran. I really liked the main characters, though it took me a little longer to warm to Chuck. My first Cooper West read but definitely not my last.

    I liked it, even if it took me awhile to get into. I feel like the book was cut off towards the end. I expected to see a little more of it come together. It's a good read though.
