An Alisa Release Day Review: The Real Thing by BG Thomas


Rating:  3.5 stars out of 5


the-real-thingBryan Mills has fantasized about cowboys all his life. Real cowboys, that is. He even dresses in what his roommate calls “cowboy drag” when he visits his favorite bar, in the hope of attracting the attentions of a genuine cowboy. But all he usually finds are posers and guys his own age.


Then one night, to his surprise, Curtis Hansen buys him a beer, and Bryan has no doubt this is the real thing. Curtis is a rugged, gorgeous man who is every bit a cowboy. He even owns his own ranch. What follows is about the most amazing night of Bryan’s young life.


But can they move beyond a night of incredible sex when Bryan admits to Curtis that the only horse he’s ever ridden was a birthday party pony? And that he’s nothing but a poser himself? Maybe, just maybe, Curtis can find the real cowboy inside Bryan, and they can ride off into the sunset together!


This was a cute story.  Bryan made some mistakes when he first knew he was gay and since then hasn’t been able to really have a relationship or be with the kind of man he wants, a real cowboy.  He can’t believe when Curtis approaches him at the bar and spends the night with him.


Seeing everything through Bryan’s eyes we are able to see how truly innocent he is to the world of dating.  Curtis has been hurt in the past and seems willing to open his heart to open his heart to Bryan.  Both of the characters are adorable and are wonderful together.


Cover art by LC Chase is a great picture of the real thing.
