CASSIDY MARTIN is a country boy through and through. He loves his horses, his Lord of the Rings tourist business, and his isolated paradise at the foot of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. Not that everyone appreciates the seclusion he craves. Take his ex-wife for example.

The sexy-as-hell guy on his latest tour might be whip-smart and push all of Cass’s buttons, but he’s about as country as a pair of Louboutins, and Cass has been there and done that. Broken heart with the T-shirt.

STEFAN HAMILTON doesn’t do ‘outdoorsy’, he’s a city boy, born and bred. The closest Stef gets to the country is ‘Cowboy Night’ at his favourite Auckland gay bar even if the music makes Stef want to rip his hair out by the roots.

But Stef is also a hardcore Lord of the Rings fanboy. So, when he gets the chance to go on a horse trek to the iconic film locations in the Southern Alps, he sucks up his fear of the gigantic animals and his allergy to camping for the chance to let his nerd flag fly. But when his mate pulls out at the last minute, Stef is left to negotiate the horses, the wrath of mother nature, and an inconvenient crush on the cowboy leading the tour.

City meets country and the sparks fly.


This 4-book series centres around two brothers and their friends and colleagues. It is set in Queenstown, New Zealand, a region boasting some of the most spectacular alpine scenery in the world and which also lays claim to the title of adventure capital of the world—home to the original bungy jump and numerous other scream-worthy experiences.

The stories have a strong emphasis on found family and hurt/comfort. There is an age gap romance; grumpy meets grumpy romantic suspense; a New Zealand cowboy falling for sassy city slicker leading to hilarious shenanigans; and a winemaker dealing with a difficult family who finds himself smitten with a young guy he'd kissed just once the year before.

Talk about opposites attract!

Stef and Cass couldn't be more different from each other: Stef is city "born and bred", he's a fem out and proud gay man from Auckland who's idea of roughing it is a three stars hotel and cannot fathom a place where there's no brunch. When his best friend's boyfriend gifts him a 2 day riding trek in the locations of LOTR (Stef's secret nerd guilty pleasure) and he meets Cass, the half-closeted, bi trek guide, whose heart and souls are in the Southern Alps. The attraction is immediate but their lives are so different and apart, plus they've both been hurt in the past.
The book is incredibly sweet and despite the heavy flirting from both men, there are just a couple of super hot moments between them. As a matter of fact, it's really a case of love at first sight, given that the main part of the book takes place in just the two days of the riding trek.

Very well written, with great character development and beautiful scenery description. Another 5 stars from me to this incredibly gifted author.

Slow burn

This took me a beat to connect with, but once I did…ooph, I was 100% invested. A slow burn for the reader as we surreptitiously get to know the true character of these two absolutely lovely people

It starts out fun and flirty in the beginning, until things get real, then you start to understand them, and become quite attached. Once Stefan starts to move past his over-the-top city boy routine, and Cassidy starts to believe that he could be enough for someone, they will capture your heart. They are complete opposites but in the best possible way. Stefan is lively and wild. Cassidy is steady and calm. It’s the perfect compliment to one another.

There was so much in this story that didn’t follow what one expected to happen and it delighted me to no end. It was also pretty successful in making me want to move to New Zealand.
