Mcfarlands Farm - A Hope Story

Cardeno C


Mcfarlands FarmWealthy, attractive Lucas Reika treats life like a party, moving from bar to bar and man to man. Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father's demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father's money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar.

Quiet, hard-working Jared McFarland loves his farm on the outskirts of Hope, Arizona, but he aches to have someone to come home to at the end of the day. Jared agrees to take in his longtime crush as a favor. But when Lucas invades his heart in addition to his space, Jared has to decide how much of himself he's willing to risk and figure out if he can offer Lucas enough to keep him after his father's punishment is over.

The Review

This isn't a book I would usually take on however It came highly recommended from Marie from over at Surrender To Books. She speaks very highly of CC’s work. I never expected to enjoy a short story as much as I did.

M/M has never really been something I would opt to read but this short completely changed my perspective on the matter and I look forward to reading more stories from Cardeno C’s work. This story completely took me by surprise. It’s a quick and easy read, focussing on the fact that two people fell in love with each other from two completely different walks of life. It shows that no matter where you’re from or where you have been, true love will find you. Fate will always be on your side.

It was very romantic and you see the journey of Lucas finding in himself who he truly wants to be. In such a short story I was extremely surprised. I usually find that shorts don’t give me enough story and feel rushed but this was not the case with this book, it was romantic heartfelt and genuine. It felt as if the book was written from the heart.

I feel inspired to try more M/M books and certainly look forward to reading more from Cardeno C.
