Review of McFarland's Farm by Cardeno C.
McFarland's Farm by Cardeno C.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh my stars that was HOT! Cardeno C. has done what I would have considered impossible and made farmers sexy with Jared McFarland. And I have to agree with Lucas, there is most certainly something about a big, built, mountain of a man that gets me going too. But as with all of CC’s books that I have read, no matter how sexy the characters and scenes are (and this one does not disappoint), McFarland’s Farm is first and foremost a romance.
Lucas has upset his father one time too many and finds himself shipped off to Hope, Arizona where he must straighten out or be cut off from his father’s money for good. As Jared contributes much of his organic farm’s success to Lucas’s father, Paul, he feels he has no choice but to accept Lucas being thrust into his life. But his reluctance at having Lucas in his home is not due to the reasons Lucas’s family suspects. Jared has been attracted to Lucas for years and finds himself even more tongue tied and self-conscious than usual because he doesn’t feel that his scared face and over-sized frame can compete with the beautiful people that an even more beautiful Jared normally socializes with. As the men spend time together and Jared takes a hard look at his life, he comes to some surprising (for him) conclusions about where he wants to go (or should I say, stay).
Always insightful, Cardeno illustrates how we all have our own insecurities and that part of finding love involves finding and loving oneself. This was a journey both men had to take. While I was thrilled that Jared found happiness, I thoroughly enjoyed witnessing Lucas learn that the important things in life are worth working for. And don’t let the length of this novella fool you – you get a full story packed into its 56 pages. McFarland’s Farm is the first in the new series and I am already looking forward to my next visit to Hope, Arizona.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
