Who wouldn’t want a do over?

When Thaine wakes up in the hospital after a bull-riding injury, he immediately asks for his lover, Jerry. He has no idea who this man next to his bed is, despite the fact Drew insists they have been an item for the last five years.

Thaine’s best friend, Jesse, calls Jerry. He thinks it’s a pretty crappy thing to do to the new boyfriend, but tells himself it’s unlikely Jerry will come after so many years. He also doesn’t get why Thaine would pass up the opportunity to be with Drew since he’s young, optimistic, and hardworking. In short, everything Jesse ever wanted in a man.

Jerry still carries a torch for his cowboy, so when Thaine asks to go home with him to recover, Jerry agrees. At first they pick up their intense physical relationship right where they left it before the breakup. Jesse, in turn, consoles the now homeless Drew and offers him quite a bit more than a shoulder to cry on. But in the back of all the men’s minds loom Thaine’s lost five years.

Four cowboys and one accident that changes all of their lives. When bull rider Thaine wakes up from a bull riding accident that takes away five years of his memories he asks for Jerry but there is one problem, he and Jerry broke up years ago. What happens next will change everything. Thaine remembers nothing of his time with the young man named Drew and goes back with Jerry to try and heal. Drew turns to the one man who has always been around. Thaine’s best friend Jesse. Will Thaine every regain his memories and what will become of Drew? Can love find its way into these four men’s hearts or is it the end of the ride for them?

As much as I like this author this story was not one of my favorite stories. When Thaine lost his memories it seems that instead of trying to figure things out and where he stood with Drew he just up and ran away, leaving Drew with no thought to his feelings at all. I enjoyed seeing Jesse and Drew find their way but found that I did not connect to Jerry and Thaine at all. Their reconnection was a nice read but the way it was brought about did not make for a “feel good” story. I did enjoyed watching Drew find a way towards happiness after all that he goes through. The four men learn just how strong love can be and what it takes to keep it. Although one of these couples’ stories was not for me I still found enjoyment in this read.
