Tempting Fate: A Love in Eden Short by Sloane Kennedy 

Description

Jackson
Everyone says what a lucky guy I am. I’ve got a great kid, an amicable relationship with my ex, and a job working cattle on one of the largest ranches in Eden, Wyoming. Only problem is that “everyone” has no clue that I’m living a half-life.

Because the other half is a closeted gay man who’s got it bad for the young ranch hand he works with day in and day out.

But the very straight Travis isn’t an option. And even if he were, my sexy co-worker isn’t exactly committed to commitment.

So it’s time for a change and since gay guys aren’t exactly falling off trees in Eden, I’m going to need a little help…

Travis
It was supposed to be a Friday night like any other. Me and my best friend heading into town to find some female company for a few hours. And even though Jackson usually goes home alone, he’s still a great wingman.

Unfortunately, between my impatience to get the night started and my bad habit of snooping, I’ve learned two things about Jackson in the space of five minutes that have left me all kinds of confused.

Jackson’s gay.

And he’s placed a classified ad to try and hook up with some guy he can’t get his mind off after a brief run-in at a hardware store in the city.

Now I can’t get my mind off Jackson.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the ladies, but why can’t I stop thinking about my good-looking best friend and the faceless stranger he’s ready to start something new with? Jackson doesn’t need some random guy right now. Not when he has me…

My Review…… 
A short story, in fact you just get into it, and then it’s done! 
Jackson is gay, he’s known for years, but fear and a small town mentality forced him into a marriage he didn’t really want. The only thing to come out of that, was his wife is now his friend and he has a son who he loves more than life. 
Travis is a player, variety is the spice of life. A different lady every time. No commitment, only a fun time. He’s the local hothead, but that’s the way he plays it. He’s got secrets, he’s been hurt in the past, and so that’s how he plays it. 
Told in the POV (point of view) of the characters. 
Jackson has loved Travis for a while now, and watching him with the ladies kills him, he might drive them to the bar, he might do mixed doubles with Travis and the ladies, but nothing happens. So when Jackson gets hit on by a guy, he decides to take matters into his own hands, a date, and who knows what else. It’s time to put his love for Travis in a box, and get on with his life. 
Travis can’t get a hold of his feelings for Jackson, they are mates, and he’s hurt when he finds out Jackson is gay! Why couldn’t he tell his friend? And now he’s going to hook up with some random guy! 
Misunderstandings and hurtful words are thrown around, Travis stalks off to be with a girl and Jackson leaves….. 
It all comes to a head when Travis realises Jackson is missing….. 
So can they make a go of this? Can they keep it a secret? And what happens next? 
I’d love to find out, definitely have to put this author on my “to watch” list. 
This came from an anthology book, I couldn’t find a published date!
