    One thought on “Making the Grade”

    1. This is another Cattle Valley book I really liked. Its message about the importance of love and friendship came through loud and clear, as did the reminder that locking oneself away to try to avoid pain doesn't work in the long run. Eventually, it is the loneliness and isolation that will hurt most. Kenny and Eli are both such lonely men, each in their own way that my heart went out to both them. Kenny has been in love with his ex-teacher for so long that he's almost given up. Never having had a [...]

    2. 3.5* Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.I found this latest book in the Cattle Valley Series to be a sweeter read. Books featuring characters with a significant age difference (almost twenty years) will most likely never be my ‘go to’ reads but there was just something so appealing about Eli and Kenny together. Kenny has been in love with his (then) teacher Eli since he was in High School and I honestly found the depth and endurance of his emotions extremely nice and it just made for a sa [...]

    3. As all of the other books in this series, it is a quick and fun read. The characters are well developed and you want to find out how their love story unfolds, particularly in the lovely gay-friendly town of Cattle Valley. For perhaps the first time in this series, the characters venture outside of their protected landscape and into the “real world” of Wyoming. The consequences are striking and provide an opportunity for the main characters to come together.As in the other books in this serie [...]

    4. I loved Kenny and Eli. I felt so bad for Eli, he had such a rough life, much different than Kenny although similiar in the fact that their parents didn't ever have time for them.If I was Kenny, I'd have his dads start doing things around the house for his mom and I'd let them get used to him not being around for a while, see if they start appreciating him after that. I hated that that never got resovled but I'm glad he has Eli now. I also hated for Eli that they never caught the guys responsible [...]

    5. Second chances M/M romance about two men that were meant to be, but had to wait until one grew up. Kenny Trenton has been in love with Mr. Eli Sanchez since he was in high school, and Eli was his English teacher. In Cattle Valley there is a lot tolerance, but nothing was going to happen until KEnny grew up into a man and came back to Cattle Valley as the Phys-Ed teacher at the high school. Eli Sanchez is still making his teaching job his whole life, but he finally feels that it is time to make s [...]

    6. I think the series has reached it's 'end' for me. The past several stories has been just OK. What started out as a fun/quirky type of "soap opera-esque" series has been running out of steam. I continue to read them, hoping that Ms. Lynne comes back with a revival story. This story isn't different from the others. Older man/younger man relationship - 17 years age difference. Both men has had a crush on each other for 10 years - older man didn't want to be a pervert (crushing on a teen), so did no [...]

    7. These boys, Kenny and Eli, were so good to read about. Kenny was a student of Eli's and now he's back in Cattle Valley teaching at the school himself. He's always been in love with Eli but it took a long time to convince Eli that Kenny isn't a seventeen year old boy anymore and he knows what he wants. They both have some serious issues stemming from their childhoods but together they fight to get over it and fight for each other, which is one of the best things to see. Love fighting to stay real [...]

    8. I always enjoy "visiting" Cattle Valley, and this trip was no exception. Both Eli and Kenny are great characters, and Lynne did an excellent job showing us why Eli has closed himself off for so many years. Just when Eli decides to open his life to Kenny, a horrible thing happens to him, and it really hit home with me in light of recent tragic events in the news.All in all, this is a great story.As a teacher, though, I have to admit that the having sex at work scene did stress me out a bit. Trust [...]

    9. This book made me so angry I think part of the reason I love the cattle valley books so much is because its basically the gay utopia where everyone is happy to see someone from CV get hurt just about broke my heart I am glad that the book had an HEA but it really upset me to even have to read about that

    10. Always love Carol lynne and find myself eagerly awaiting her next bookThis one didn't disappoint Abit of mild conflict from inside and outside the relationship but incredibly hot and sweet

    11. I really liked Kenny and Eli, I understand Eli's reluctance in getting involved with Kenny.Even though Kenny is now an adult and a teacher himself, he was Eli's student at one point, and Eli's family history explained a lot. And Kenny, i'm so glad he got his HEA.

    12. Эли - старый, патетичный нытик. Ничего привлекательного в нем не увидела абсолютно.

    13. I love this pairing and was feeling so sorry for Eli and all his mishappenings. And the town coming together to paint his house was just magical.

    14. Eli got on my nerves and he did appear weak to me. I did like Kenny and Luke. Can't wait for Luke's story.

    15. This is another great addition to Carol Lynne's Cattle Valley series. Definitely a book that I would recommend to a friend.
