Sometimes curves in the road take you right where you belong.
Luther Almond’s life working the Bakken oil field is perfect—short-lived jobs, temporary housing, and easy hookups. That’s one reason he won’t move home when he inherits the lake house. When Erik Heat bends over to fix Luther’s pipes, his tattoos hint he might be up for more than working on the drain. The last thing Luther expects is to want more from this guy than one night.
Every time they’re together, Luther is more grounded and Erik more confident. When the lake house demands attention, Luther asks for Erik’s help. There he imagines a more permanent life, one where he stops running. But he wants Erik by his side. Can he find the courage—and the words—to ask?
4 of 5 stars
The character dynamics in Bent Arrow. The story is short, so things move on a bit quicker than I normally like to see. I prefer if more time passes as relationships unfold but, all things considered, this was very well done. There isn't a lot of influence from outside characters, that's to be not uncommon in novellas. I must say that the few scenes with extra characters are quite well done. Especially the ones with Luther's mom, and co-workers. Bent Arrow is a genuine story about the lives of a couple of average guys. It's not overly dramatic or all hearts and flowers either. The balance is just right.
Real life. Genuine men. True love.
