Down on the Farm by Silvia Violet Blog Tour

After quitting his teaching job on the heels of a scandal, Beck Davis moves to the house his grandmother left him in Ames Bridge. He finds the town stifling, but it’s a quiet place to hide while he regroups. Or so he thought.

His neighbor Cal McMurtry shows up, demanding to buy Beck’s land. Cal is as infuriatingly sexy as he was ten years ago when he and his jock friends spent their summers taunting Beck.

Beck expects to hate Cal as he did back then, but Cal isn’t who Beck thought he was: he’s hardworking, passionate about revamping and diversifying his family’s farm, and—far more shocking—he’s gay, and interested in Beck.

But as much as they want each other, Beck has no intention of staying in Ames Bridge, and while Cal is technically out, he refuses to date openly. A real relationship seems doomed from the beginning, but love can be a powerful motivator for those willing to take a chance.

Down on the Farm, a sexy, enemies-to-lovers, small town romance, is the first book in the Ames Bridge series.

4 Sweet Stars

Beck returns home to a rural town after he left his job, deciding to take care of his grandmother's home for a few months while he looked for another job.

Cal grew up in the farm adjacent. As childhood friends, Beck and Cal didn't get along as teens. Cal athletic from farming, Beck artistic and out & proud.

Beck felt Cal bullied him, pushing him away, not realizing it was because Cal had a crush on him.

Years later, after a lifetime of growth, the men are next door neighbors in a town where if you think it, it's already spreading down the gossip chain.

Cal is terrified to lose the family farm due to being gay. He's out and not proud – it's okay to be gay as long as he never dates.

Beck just quit a job due to bigotry, so this adds fuel to Cal's fire.

The book was a quick, sweet read. Perfect way to spend the afternoon reading, without too much angst or conflict, but obviously miscommunication.

Living in a small town myself, I know things aren't as 'dramatic' as portrayed. There is a soap-opera, dramatized-for-TV small town mentality, which while okay for fiction, is not at all the mindset in small-town USA 2017. Little bit over-the-top, but suspending belief added on top of the fact that this is warm and fuzzy romance, had me overlooking this.
