    One thought on “Luke”

    1. 3.5 starsLuke is a really sweet novella set in the same world as the author's previous story, Sylvan, but it can be read as a standalone. In this story we meet Luke, a cowboy almost at the end of his rope due to an unexpected change in his life, and Morgan, the man who ends up turning Luke's life completely around.When the mother of his baby girl drops her off with him, saying she has no desire to be a full time mom, Luke finds himself responsible for an infant with very little idea on how to do [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this story. Luke is a cowboy and a new father. An inconsequential one night stand turns his world upside down when he finds himself the sole caretaker of his daughter, Jessie. Not knowing what to do, how to raise a child or where to go, Luke is in dire straights when lady luck shines upon him in the form of Dr. Morgan Gallagher.Morgan is a small town doctor with a soft hear, who owns a small farm that just so happens to need fixed up. When the two men meet, they quickly set up a [...]

    3. I'm giving this a 3 1/2 but will bump it up to 4 because it was just too cute. Such a sweet read - a cowboy and his tiny baby, what's not to love. The part with the mom showing up was a little bit confusing because nothing was ever said about why she suddenly showed up or whether she wanted the baby or Luke back, but I liked it a lot nonetheless. :)

    4. Could have been better in my opinion! TBH! FElt like parts were missing or skipped! SIgh but I could have liked getting to know the characters more!!

    5. Luke is almost an “innocent” novella, it has the feeling of an old fashioned serial romance with the added bonus of the modern gay romance twist. If not for the heroes being two men, the plot would have been almost classic: single father in dear need of a help find it in the house of a welcoming doctor. In an heterosexual plot, the wandering cowboy would arrive at the doorstep of the recent widow offering his help; with the added novelty of both cowboy than doctor being men, you can also hav [...]

    6. I'm so conflicted in rating this/what shelf to put it on. On a side note, before I begin my review, I have to say this: It's pretty hilarious because when I first began this book, I said to myself "Lol. Well, this book might end up good, but I'm not gonna be reading any of this author's other work." (see notes below on the writing) After finishing it (and typing up this review), I'm already looking at her other work. I cannot for the life of me identify why I want to read more of her work, but I [...]

    7. LUKE was a nice read but it lacked substance. None of the elements was bad but neither did anything jump off the pages, triggering emotion or getting me to form a connection to the characters. Perhaps the simplicity of the story was too much for me; Luke is freaking out over the fact he now has to take care of his new born daughter. He meets Morgan in a small town who needs a cowboy to fix up his ranch. Luke of course is that much needed cowboy and takes the job gladly. Morgan is gay, Luke is at [...]

    8. Small-town out doctor Taylor sees a young man at a church when he’s going to check on a patient. He’s immediately struck by him but doesn’t think much until he finds the man outside with a baby who seems ill. Taylor takes Luke and Jessica to his house/office to check the baby who is fine. Luke’s girlfriend (?) dumped him with their baby and he’s considering giving her up as he has no job. Taylor offers them a place to stay in exchange for work around his crumbling ranch and the attract [...]

    9. From the publisher:Wandering cowboy Luke Walker is at the end of his rope after his girlfriend abandons their newborn daughter. A terrified new father, he���s grateful to meet Dr. Morgan Gallagher. Morgan recognizes that he and Luke could help each other: Luke can rebuild Morgan���s property and land so Morgan can have the horses he wants, and Morgan can provide the younger man with a safe place to raise his daughter. In theory, it should work out perfectly, except that Morgan is ins [...]

    10. Stars: 1.5/5OverallA sweet story without much substance or conflict.ReviewI think the biggest weakness in this book is the lack of conflict. While there is some internal struggle and growth, generally everything falls into place neatly. Too neatly. The baby's momma shows up, but doesn't cause any trouble, the exboyfriend-ish has no hard feelings, and there's no negative ramifications for the gay cowboys.The biggest conflict was the baby's fever and the guys getting over themselves, and even that [...]

    11. Although this is set in the same town, "Sylvan" as a previous book it can be read as a stand alone. It’s relatively short, 100 pages in PDF format but packs a lot of story into those pages. Luke finding himself at the end of his rope with a baby daughter thrust upon him and completely unprepared for fatherhood. He ends up on the radar of Morgan, the town Doc, who has a thing for cowboys. He hasn’t had one, but as a gay man, that is his fantasy man and one of the reasons he moved to the small [...]

    12. A cute story complete with cowboys, doctor & an adorable baby. The plot, however, is underdeveloped. The issue of Luke making a couple of really questionable decisions with his baby is raised and dropped. The transition of Luke from gay to straight was too smooth. The way the mom is not only let off the hook for what she decided about her baby was unbelievable. Questions of custody was handled superficially. I would be tempted to read the other books in the series. They seem to be independen [...]

    13. I really enjoyed the story line on this book, but the way it was written didn't work for me. When Jessie's mom showed up weeks after just dumping her child off on Luke you expect there to be some dialogue/agrument, but it says that she showed up and he needed to go talk to her, then all of a sudden it is later in the afternoon (aparently she is gone) and he is taking a shower. This seemed to happen a lot throughout the book. I don't think I will go back to read the first of this series. This boo [...]

    14. Sweet short read of about 100 pages M/M romance with my favorite gay-for-you plot. I totally believe that people can repress their true tendencies so that they can 'fit in' to general society um, just check out your local high school if you don't believe me! So I swallow whole the idea behind this story about Luke. Very cute and well writing although there a some grammatical errors, there wasn't so many that it threw me out of the story.3 stars

    15. Would have liked it to be longer but nice story overall. There are some things that are forgiven as a result. The mother-of-child for one. How the one character figures a few things out (hey I'm trynig not to spoil too much). So not much room for depth but where she does into detail the story is excellent.

    16. Cliche, used WAY too many times. The change of spelling of "Gena" to "Gina" annoying. I think the author could have done much more with this book, opened the characters up a bit more. Too little info on Luke, Morgan, Gena, Zelda, Steven. It's like they were all dumped into one house and that's the story. No connection to the characters.

    17. Not a bad story just not anything to it. There is no major conflict, heck, there is almost zero conflict. It's a forgettable story, even the addition of a child didn't really add an "aww" factor. Just the two men getting together. It's told well butwell that is it.

    18. I really wish I could rate this lower. It was awful. I almost didn't finish ity my OCD helped me through because the writing, the supposed plot EVERYTHING was just REALLY, REALLY, REALLY horrible.

    19. Short, mediocre tale about a cowboy and a doctor falling for each other. Very little plot, character development, interest and no chemistry.

    20. 2.5 starsReally short. So much was glossed over that I feel like really needed to be there. By the end of it all I just did not care.

    21. I loved the gentle romance in this book. The fact that Morgan couldn't turn away someone needing help said so much about him in the first few pages.

    22. So I liked the characters, and the concept, but I really didn't like the writing. I felt like I was missing chunks of story.
