LGBTQ, Western Romance
Lachlan Blaecleah never expected to find the love of his life in the middle of a street fight with two other men, but he knew the moment he saw Asa Miller that he wanted to get to know the man better. He jumps into the fight and becomes Asa's knight in slightly tarnished armor. Asa Miller is amazed by Lachlan every time he looks at him. He's a walking, talking cowboy fantasy come to life, complete with hat and boots. After being rescued by him and taken home for a night of debauchery at the hands of the sexy cowboy, Asa isn't sure what to do next. Should he stick around and get to know Lachlan and his large family better or run from the feelings the man invokes in him? Before Asa can make his choice, someone else steps in to separate the two men, on a more permanent basis. Asa has to decide if what they have together is worth the heartache he feels when he almost loses the man he loves. Or should he guard his heart and lose his cowboy forever?

MMMMM MMM I love me some cowboys! Stormy Glenn is at her best when she is writing about cowboys and the men they love. COWBOY EASY is the first in the Blaecleah Brothers series and it didn't take long before I was roped and ready to read more.
Asa Miller just wanted to get away. After being kicked out of his parents' house with just the clothes on his back and his motorcycle when he told his parents he was gay, he decides to drive around the country a bit looking for a place to settle down. When he stops at a small town diner, he never expected to be attacked let alone rescued by the hottest man on two legs.
Lachlan Blaecleah wasn't going to let Clem and Billy Thornton beat up someone even if that man was a stranger. When he steps in to break up the fight, he has no idea his life is about to change forever. Neither man can deny the instant physical attraction to each other, but after a night of sex, they both think there is something more.
While I really enjoyed reading about Asa and Lachlan, I did have a few questions that were not answered and they kept me from rating this book a 5. First was how did Clem and Billy know that Asa was gay that made them jump him in the first place? There also didn't seem to be any real resolution to the mystery/suspense part of the story line, but being familiar with Ms Glenn's writing, I am sure that will be answered in forthcoming books in the series.
I loved the Blaecleah family and would have liked to have read more scenes with the entire clan interacting. One of my favorite scenes is Ma telling Lachlan why she and Da came to America. But seriously, her family needs to get over it already. And as soon as I can find either Cattle Valley or Cade Creek on a map, I am moving there. Yes, the town did have some narrow-minded bigoted people but I enjoyed the thought of the community coming together to help out.
The development of the relationship between Asa and Lachlan did happen quickly but they both made mistakes and that read very true for me. This story has everything you could hope for, laughs, tears, suspense and some really HOT sex. (And the hot sex doesn't have anything to do with the barn burning down)
