Disowned and cast out of his home, eighteen year old Declan Mayo turns to the only thing he can think of to help him get back on his feet. Working at Chicken Ranch, a rural brothel that caters to gay men, seems like the perfect solution. He isn’t about to let a lack of sexual experience stop him from taking what he sees as his only way off the streets.
Falling in love with one of his clients wasn’t in the game plan, but Declan can’t seem to help himself. Killian Hamilton is sweet and kind, with a stutter Declan can’t help but find adorable. Surely, if anyone could overlook Declan’s choice of employment, it would be a kindhearted man like Killian.
What Declan doesn’t count on is Killian’s connection to one of the brothel’s regular clients, or the way his love life is about to blow up in his face.
Amanda Young did a nice job with this story. Declan is forced to find a way to support himself when he is kicked out of his home for being gay and when he sees no other choice he goes to Chicken Ranch for a job. Killian goes to Chicken Ranch hoping to get off without the awkwardness of trying to pick someone up, but finds something much better.
I loved both of these characters. Both were innocent in their own way, Declan by age and experience and Killian by his shyness and lack of social experience. It was easy to connect with these characters and see their relationship slowly start to build after they see each other months after Killian visited the ranch.
The cover art is nice and caught my eye.
