REVIEW: “You Can Leave Your Boots On” by Irene Preston


In the heart of Texas…

Liberal Austinite Travis Boyd recycles, shops local, and is partner in a successful green-building company. After his last disastrous relationship, he’ll never again date a man who’s not out. A little discretion while working for ultra-conservative clients in west Texas is hardly the same as being in the closet. Anyway, the only person he’s interested in being indiscreet with is the client’s macho son. Not happening, Trav.

Bo Vargas is a cowboy-boot-wearing, meat-eating, truck-driving ode to masculinity. He’s not gay. The men he picks up on business trips are just anonymous diversions. Travis isn’t anonymous. And there’s something about him that makes Bo want to expand his relationship options. Maybe.

When a popular dating app sends Bo and Travis on the same blind date, the night explodes in passion. One night isn’t a problem. But what will each man be willing to risk the morning after?

A quick read, lots of steamy attraction between Travis and Bo, and some hot and sexy times to boot. (no pun in tended)

Travis and Bo start off with this blind date that is awkward, goes a little south, and then picks up again when the attraction just can’t be tempered. The relationship that follows is very fast, as is the business they work on together. With a tone that feels slightly rushed, two characters that I had some difficulty figuring out what they saw in each other besides looks, the book still stands firmly on two feet. It’s not going to the top of my favorites by any means, but it’s not a bad read. I didn’t love it, but it liked it well enough. And the cover… sigh… that’s a thing of beauty.
