Loved this story and was upset at how quickly it ended… I wanted more from it but I know it will be a series and hope it gets expanded. Aaron and Joshua are on opposite sides of the table when it comes to a deal that needs to be made… in more ways than one, they both have secret.. Joshua is a lawyer trying to close a business deal on Aaron’s family land and is being pressured to make a deal no matter what… Aaron is protecting more than his land, he is protecting his family secret… They are vampires cursed to live on their land forever and will protect themselves… Holy crap was the sex hot in this book and I definitely did not want it to end… I want to read more since these men left a very good impression on me… I give this book 4 diamonds…
Ranch Men, 1
Aaron Whitman’s basic ranching life changed two hundred years ago when his father made him and his brothers vampires, and his mother cursed them all for his father's sin. They cannot leave the family ranch and they must drink from the longhorns that are their livelihood.
But a lot has changed since his mother’s original spell was cast. The blood of their cattle is barely sustaining them and the mining companies are closing in on their ranch.
Joshua Miers is a lawyer, hired by Ash Mining to acquire the Whitman’s farm. He soon realizes something is very strange about Aaron and becomes rapt up in a world of paranormal survival and the love of a man who defies all common sense.
Will Josh help to save the Whitman brothers when a fire threatens all of their lives? Or will he choose the life he has always known and the job he has worked his whole life for?
Be Warned: m/m sex, rimming
Josh slipped out from beneath Aaron’s heavy arm, sat up on the mattress and stared down on his now sleeping lover.
“Aaron.” He shook the man beside him, then called his name again. “Aaron?”
He put his fingers to his throat and felt the thumping of his heart beneath his finger tips. His eyebrows rose on his forehead. He had a beating heart?
“Hmmm, so some of the tales about vampires aren’t true.”
Josh glanced around the bedroom, and then down at his watch. It was eleven o’clock and time for him to go to sleep. His clothes were strewn all over the floor, and his limbs were heavy, sated and relaxed.
He was also covered in cum.
“Well, I may as well pass out, too.”
After I wash.
He pulled himself up, out of bed and staggered over to the door that he assumed led into a bathroom. He opened it and found a large en-suite.
There was a pile of white fluffy towels, so he flicked on the shower and jumped in for a minute, washing away the sweat and sperm that was over him and inside him.
Vampires better not carry disease.
He hadn’t even thought about protection, which was unheard of for him. But then again, what had been normal since he’d met Aaron?
Josh turned off the hot water and grabbed a towel, drying himself slowly and enjoying the lethargy that was flowing through his bloodstream. His eyelids drooped, and his shoulders slumped.
He wandered back to the bed, lay down and pulled a coverlet over his cooling body. He let his eyes close, but his mind was still restless, playing the night over in his mind.
Dying cows, food, hot blood, unbelievable vampires, immortality, fangs, and family. All of it combined into a mixture of thoughts in a big bowl of soup, swirling around and making no sense at all.
Finally he shuffled back until his ass was against Aaron’s hip, and amazingly, once he could feel the man beside him better, he fell into a perfect night’s sleep.
This book was great Aaron and Joshua were great together. Wath left me hangi was that if they were bloodmates wasn't it sopose for them to have a bond so Joshua lifespand will be slower rate and won't age as fast as a human,that was the only inconclusive part of the book.what will hapen when he starts to age and Aaron still the same. I recommend you the book so you have your own opinions.I really hope you like it like I did.I'll be waiting for the next book hope it's soon.
