“…there was an ache and yearning in this story that I couldn’t get enough of.”
~ Under the Covers

I was recently recommended this book when I was looking for a farmer hero and I’m glad I gave it a shot.  I’m always looking for new authors to read in the LGBT romance sub genre and I’m happy to have found Eli Easton.

A SECOND HARVEST features an age gap, the characters are polar opposites in many aspects, and there was an ache and yearning in this story that I couldn’t get enough of.  David is the older of the two, a widower who inherited his family’s farm when he was really young.  He had to grow up fast, take care of his family which then was his wife and two kids, and be a God fearing member of his small community.  All the other feelings he ever had were repressed and shoved in a corner.  Until Christie moves into the farm next door after his grandmother passed away.  He’s younger, a bit wild and without purpose, but he coaxes David out of his shell and brings to the forefront everything he thought he buried deep inside himself.

This is beautiful story even if a bit understated.  There isn’t anything too flashy about the relationship between these two and the friendship develops slowly and tentatively.  A good kind of slow burn.  I loved them together in those tender moments. Probably I would’ve liked to see a little more sizzling chemistry but in the end this didn’t feel like that kind of book and these are not those kind of characters.  David especially.  There’s a lot he’s discovering and dealing with emotionally and outwardly.

This was my first Eli Easton book and it certainly won’t be my last.  I really enjoyed her writing style and I’ll be continuing this series.

About Eli Easton

Having been, at various times and under different names, a minister’s daughter, a computer programmer, the author of paranormal mysteries, a game designer, an organic farmer, an avid hiker, and a profound sleeper, Eli is happily embarking on yet another incarnation as a m/m romance author.

As an addicted reader of such, she is tinkled pink when an author manages to combine literary merit, vast stores of humor, melting hotness and eye-dabbing sweetness into one story. She promises to strive to achieve most of that most of the time. She currently lives on a farm in Pennsylvania with her husband, three bulldogs, three cows and six chickens. All of them (except for the husband) are female, hence explaining the naked men that have taken up residence in her latest fiction writing.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
