Down on the Farm, a sexy, enemies-to-lovers, small town romance, is the first book in the Ames Bridge series.
After quitting his teaching job on the heels of a scandal, Beck Davis moves to the house his grandmother left him in Ames Bridge. He finds the town stifling, but it’s a quiet place to hide while he regroups. Or so he thought.
His neighbor Cal McMurtry shows up, demanding to buy Beck’s land. Cal is as infuriatingly sexy as he was ten years ago when he and his jock friends spent their summers taunting Beck.
Beck expects to hate Cal as he did back then, but Cal isn’t who Beck thought he was: he’s hardworking, passionate about revamping and diversifying his family’s farm, and—far more shocking—he’s gay, and interested in Beck.
But as much as they want each other, Beck has no intention of staying in Ames Bridge, and while Cal is technically out, he refuses to date openly. A real relationship seems doomed from the beginning, but love can be a powerful motivator for those willing to take a chance.
This is the type of story that has weaving tropes. It’s an enemies to lovers but also a friends to lovers. At least that’s how I read it. The title for this book is apt. As warm as it sounds is as warm as it is. There’s a tiny bit of romantic suspense but not too much.
Cal has never left Ames Bridge. Even when his folks left, he stayed and turned the farm into something. And it’s the farm that he loves more than anything. He has his dog, Katie, some awesome folks in town, and even though he’s out he’s certainly not proud.
Beck did leave home and after a scandal he’s come home to decompress. He never intended to stay. He wanted to put his grandmother’s house in order, sell it, and move on. But when he sees Cal (the boy he always wanted but who was always mean to him) showing interest his life changes direction.
This book shows that bigotry is alive and well in many areas in the US. Yes, we are progressing but for many they are still fighting a battle to love who they want without persecution.
There’s some silly moments, beautiful moments, and some teary moments but it all shapes this book into a delightful read that makes you smile in the end.
