McFarland’s Farm

by Cardeno C.


Kay's Review

Cardeno C is now one of my must read authors for gay romance so of course I snapped up the opportunity to read McFarland's farm.
Jared is pretty much a recluse living out a lonely life out in his farm in the middle of nowhere where the nearest civilization is a small town. So when he has the opportunity to lodge Lucas whom he's had a crush on for short while he sees it both as a blessing and torture.

Lucas is a spoilt rich boy from LA who is being punished by his father by being out to the farm to have some time to get his life together. Of course he doesn't want to be at the farm so he arrives with attitude.

Their meeting is a little awkward and it took a while for the initial tension to thaw out, what with Luca's attitude and Jared laying down an ultimatum. But things finally move on and Lucas loses the attitude and earns his way by helping out with the office work.

This is a quick read and I read it while curled up on the sofa watching the evening news. But I have to say it's not Cardeno's best work. I felt things were slow in places and we spent too much time in the characters' heads instead of seeing them interact via dialogue or action. Still, things did eventually heat up and the ending was sweet.

If you're looking for an easy read while you're waiting for an appointment or on a short train journey, then pick this up.

McFarlands Farm Cover
 Wealthy, attractive Lucas Reika treats life like a party, moving from bar to bar and man to man. Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father's demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father's money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar. Quiet, hard-working Jared McFarland loves his farm on the outskirts of Hope, Arizona, but he aches to have someone to come home to at the end of the day. Jared agrees to take in his longtime crush as a favor. But when Lucas invades his heart in addition to his space, Jared has to decide how much of himself he's willing to risk and figure out if he can offer Lucas enough to keep him after his father's punishment is over.

  Cardeno C - Logo
Cardeno C. - CC to friends - is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few "awwws" into a reader's day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno's stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset. Cardeno's Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, "You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day." Website: Facebook: Facebook Group: Twitter: Pinterest: Goodreads:
