Blueberry Boys by Vanessa North

Connor Graham is a city boy—a celebrated fashion photographer in New York. When his uncle’s death drags him back to the family blueberry farm, all he wants to do is sell it as quickly as he can. Until he meets his uncle’s tenant farmer.

Jed Jones, shy and stammering, devout and dedicated, has always yearned for land of his own and a man to share it with. Kept in the closet by his church, family, and disastrous first love, he longs to be accepted for who he is. But now, with his farm and his future in Connor’s careless hands, he stands to lose even the little he has.

Neither man expects the connection between them. Jed sees Connor—appreciates his art and passion like no one else in this godforsaken town ever has. Connor hears Jed—looks past his stutter to listen to the man inside. The time they share is idyllic, but with the farm sale pending, even their sanctuary is a source of tension. As work, family, and their town’s old-fashioned attitudes pull them apart, they must find a way to reconcile commitments to their careers and to each other.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

The Blueberry Boys was a bit of a surprise for me. I wasn't sure what to expect, but was hooked from the get-go. I enjoyed the author's voice, the easy flow of the story, & the emotional depth and character development.

I received a much-needed dose of warm & fuzzy, a side of angst, ending with believability.

What I enjoyed the most was the realistic feel to the story. Even the romance was fluid, not forced, & never entered over-the-top territory. Built over time, there was no insta anything.

Without the bells & whistles, overused tropes, & the addition of eroticism, Blueberry Boys was a solid, well-written storyline that was as realistic & wholesome as it was scorching hot.

I look forward to reading more by this author.

Author of over a dozen novels, novellas, and short stories, Vanessa North delights in giving happy-ever-afters to characters who don’t think they deserve them. Relentless curiosity led her to take up knitting and run a few marathons “just to see if she could.” She started writing for the same reason. Her very patient husband pretends not to notice when her hobbies take over the house. Living and writing in Northwest Georgia, she finds her attempts to keep a quiet home are frequently thwarted by twin boy-children and a very, very large dog.
