THE BROKEN H by J.L. Langley

Description: When Sheriff Grayson Hunter is called back to his ancestral home, The Broken H, he has no idea he’s really getting a call to fall back in love with its handsome Apache foreman, Shane Cortez.

The Good: This couple is easy to root for, and Ms. Langley pays a lot of attention to developing their relationship in and out of bed. I loved that Shane wore glasses and had really long hair — both of which drove Grayson crazy with desire. Ms. Langley gives this couple several interesting obstacles, including a 13-year age gap and a secret past. Also, there definitely isn’t any skimping on the sex. This book is chock full of it.

The Bad: Way too many typos, and plot threads — a few of which don’t get wrapped up or are resolved in a flippant manner. Also, though the book is set in a fairly small town where everyone knows everyone, no one seems to realize anyone else is gay until they either fall in love or show blatant interest in another man. This rang false.

The Naughty: Erotic. Ejaculation. Slight festish.

Editing issues: Many typos. Word misusage.

Publisher: Loose Id
