Guest Review: Waking the Behr by (Foothills Pride #7) Pat Henshaw

Both Ben and Mitch think they know exactly what they want. Turns out, they don’t even know their own hearts.

Good old boy Ben has dated women his entire life, while gay nightclub owner Mitch has never considered unsophisticated country boys his type. But after they start hanging out, the small-town contractor and the urban entrepreneur are both stunned by the electricity sparking between them.

As they step outside their comfort zones to spend time together, Mitch finds he enjoys rural car rallies, and Ben is intrigued by the upscale bars Mitch owns in San Francisco. When they share their lives and grow closer, they start to question the way they’ve always defined themselves. Then they kiss and fling open the door to love. Now they must step up and travel the road that may lead to happily ever after—even if that path isn’t one they ever expected to walk.

Reviewer: Shee Reader

Ben and Mitch are both interesting characters who seem at first to have nothing in common, but as the story unfolds they find quite a lot of common ground. The relationship is a slow burn one, but that fitted these two nicely. The two contrasting locations they lived in gave interesting details, and it was nice to see the men discover things about themselves that they had hitherto not known. I really liked Ben’s brothers, so might well look out their stories at some point.

There were lots of likeable qualities about this book as it rolls long, but there were things that drove me crazy too. Ben’s repeatedly referring to being gay as a choice, referring to himself over and over as a good ol’ boy are just two examples. Mitch was pretty likeable too but i wanted to know more about him. There was lots to like about it, but this book wasn’t quite my cup of tea, I imagine lots of readers would love it though.

I was given a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for my review.
