Welcome to Tucker Springs, Colorado, where sparks fly when opposites attract—but are some obstacles too great to overcome?

When tattoo artist Seth Wheeler meets his new neighbor, it’s like a revelation. Darren Romero is everything Seth wants in a man: hot, clever, single, and interested. For a minute he seems perfect. Then Darren drops the bomb: he moved to Tucker Springs to be a pastor at the New Light Church.

As a gay man whose parents threw him out, Seth has a strict policy of keeping believers at arm’s length for self-preservation. But Darren’s perseverance and the chemistry bubbling between them steadily wear down his defenses.

In a small town like Tucker Springs, Seth can’t avoid Darren—or how much he wants him. Which means he needs to decide what’s more important: protecting himself, or his feelings for his neighbor.

This was such a delicious and animated story.

Seth is a tattoo artist and loves to play music. He has the look of a rough guy with his appearance. Seth has a new neighbor and oh is he stunning and irresistible!!

Darren is new in the neighborhood and when he sees Seth the attraction between them is heavy. They laugh and flirt and drink together. That’s where he tells Seth he got a job as a minister at the church. It’s kind of a shock for Seth being an atheist. This doesn’t stop them from having a passionate night together. But there is the awkward morning after. The realization he had a night with a religious man sinks in, he can’t get involved. His religious parents, with their extreme church, threw him out and disowned him.  Even when he knows Darren is not an average minister he can’t get involved. Only, his heart yearns for Darren.

What a great story this was. It had a strong storyline, humorous and excellent conversations about life and religion. They spent a lot of time together and the variety of it was captivating. Behind bedroom doors they are hot, steamy, and passionate moments. Both men are very engaging, warm, sensitive, and endearing.
They both have their baggage from a painful past. The emotional part was one that hit right into my heart. Overall a very balanced story with two passionate personalities.
It had a good, strong plot and the whole story together felt as one solid piece. Excellently done!!
