Hearts and Hazelnuts by Kris T. Bethke


Mechanic Jordan Hart is down on his luck, so he gladly accepts a temporary job servicing tractors at a hazelnut farm in Newberg, Oregon. He doesn’t expect to be attracted to his boss, Beckett Shaw. Still working on embracing his bisexuality, he’s reluctant to start anything, but Beckett’s gentle coaxing convinces Jordan to take a risk.

Beckett has vowed not to get involved with anyone until he can restore the Shaw Farms name as a leader in hazelnuts. But there’s no denying his interest in the shy mechanic who shows up at his door. Just as they begin to find a balance, outside forces threaten to tear them apart. Job opportunities force Jordan out of the Portland area he loves so much. But when danger comes too close to Beckett, Jordan must decide if he can follow his heart to the Willamette Valley… and straight back to Beckett.

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
I have read many of the States of Love stories, and enjoyed them all. As a non-native, I have found the tour fascinating, and the romance engaging.

What stood out for me in this book was the 'proper' way in which both men, but Jordan in particular, behave. Jordan could easily have chosen an easy path a couple of times, but does what he feels is right and moral, even if it is not what he would naturally choose. I like that time is less important than his need to be someone worthy. It is written so well, and he is given the chance to grow as a character – which is impressive in a short novel. Beck is a lovely guy too, but for me, Jordan just shone.

Very enjoyable addition to the series, thank you, Ms. Bethke.



KRIS T. BETHKE has been a voracious reader for pretty much her entire life and has been writing stories for nearly as long. An avid and prolific daydreamer, she always has a story in her head. She spends most of her free time reading, writing, or knitting/crocheting her latest project. Her biggest desire is to find a way to accomplish all three tasks at one time. A classic muscle car will always turn her head, and weekend naps are one of her greatest guilty pleasures. She lives in a converted attic with a very fluffy cat and the voices in her head. She’ll tell you she thinks that’s a pretty good deal. Kris believes that love is love, no matter the gender of the people involved, and that all love deserves to be celebrated. And she loves to hear from readers, so feel free to drop her a line.
