Darlene has only been dating one man
and it seems that they only do it in secret, never out in
public. She is ok with this, as she knows in the long run
he is not really the man for her. In fact, she wouldn’t
mind spending some time with the new cowboy, Dawson, who has
shown up on her ranch to work. She just doesn’t want to end
up with the same reputation as her sister, though she fears
certain rumors are true.
Dawson is one hot man, and a cowboy to
boot. He only has eyes for Darlene though. But Darlene,
while drawn to him, can’t place who he is, and when she
finds out she is stunned. But, they have spent a long time
away from each other and there are a lot of secrets buried
which could derail their new relationship. Will they get to
clear the air or will they be lost to each other forever?
I want to preface my review of A
Matter Among Men with the comment that I had an
exceptionally hard time reading this story as it was written
in the format of the first person. Others might not have
the same issues that I had but for some reason I did not
feel like the main character was telling this story, though
it was written as if they were.
A Matter Among Men was a
super erotic look into lost soul mates and loved ones, while
at the same time trying to move on. It is also a classic
example how meddling by others can hurt more than the
intended victims, and it can have a huge affect on many
others. Ms. Blaine has a great concept in the dual roles of
the sisters and how they deal very differently with their
grief, and what they want out of life. Additionally Ms.
Blaine can write some super erotic sex and love scenes. In
the end I found I didn't enjoy A Matter Among Men
as I found there was too much information thrown at the
reader that I had a hard time believing for a contemporary
romance story. But, as I prefaced some of these feeling
might have been due to the writing style. Take a look at
the book blurb and if you are a fan of first person writing
you might have a diffident view of the story.
