Down on the Farm, a sexy, enemies-to-lovers, small town romance, is the first book in the Ames Bridge series.
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.
Love starting a new series, the potential for so many wonderful scenarios, whether they will center around a certain couple, family, or town doesn't matter, knowing there will be future hours of anticipation as you wait each new installment is always a thrill I relish. Down on the Farm is a great introduction to Ames Bridge, the newest series from Silvia Violet.
Cal denied and fought who he was when he was younger and in the process was basically a bully but know that he has accepted himself, he finds himself isolated. Beck returns home to sort out his grandmother's farm and belongings and finds the "next door" neighbor to be one of those who bullied him in his youth. They both just want to move on with their lives, Cal wants to enlarge his organic farming by purchasing land from Beck and Beck just wants to regroup after having left his previous teaching job. Life has a way of getting us where we need to be even if it's in a completely different path than we expect.
I won't lie, I wanted to hate Cal but there's something about him that just won't let you. I wanted to wrap Beck in bubble wrap to protect him from the big bad world but his determined attitude won't let you. It's true that not everyone changes and grows in life from the person they were in their youth but most of us do and Cal is the perfect example of someone who does and I have to admit I enjoyed watching Beck realize that Cal is not the boy he remembers. Down on the Farm has a little bit of everything that makes for a perfectly enjoyable and entertaining read. I can't wait to see what Silvia Violet and Ames Bridge brings us next.
