I tend to read a lot of books, it's one of my life's little pleasures. Most of them are m/m books, but I have been known to read an m/f book once in a while *g*. So, I thought every few weeks I'd share with you the books that I have enjoyed reading the most. These will be books that range from 3 stars to 5 stars. You will only find positive criticism from me in these reviews. I'm the type of reader who does not send negative feedback. If I don't enjoy a story, then I just move on to the next. I've been pretty lucky, though. Out of all the stories I've read over the years, there are only a handful that I really did not enjoy.
I'm starting off this first review with a sweet, well-written story with wonderful characters. This author is new to me and I was so happy I took the chance and read the book because I enjoyed it very much. I know I will be reading it over and over again, and I am looking forward to more stories by JM Cartwright.
Just a word of warning. My reviews contain spoilers so if you don't want to know details of the story then do not click on the link.

Johnny Rayne has had enough - enough of being at the top of the rock music industry for the last decade, enough of constant touring and recording. He wants something more -- just something very different. Moving to a farm in West Virginia, Johnny meets Sheriff Virgil Grissom on his first morning in the mountains.
The sheriff challenges Johnny in a multitude of ways - with overt machismo, disdain for Johnny's musician past, and all-around know-it-all-ness. The two men clash continually, and Johnny resists succumbing to the sheriff's brash charm until Grissom forces him to admit some very basic truths. One: Johnny's definitely attracted to men. Two: Johnny's definitely attracted to Grissom. And three: Johnny's definitely going to enjoy every moment of it.
