Title: No Going Home
Six years ago, a hoof to the head ended Leslie Hardin’s showjumping career and his relationship with the man he loved. Broken, hurt and rejected, Les has focused his energies on rebuilding his life.
Les’ accident has shown him that the most valuable treasures are usually found under an imperfect surface, and his reputation for taking in strays starts to grow. But it’s one of these strays in particular, injured rodeo cowboy Randy Hersch, who captures more than just his compassion.
Between his disapproving father and his chosen career path, Randy has always felt the need to deny his passion. When Les takes him under his wing, Randy begins to realise that he is truly strong enough to admit his true self—to himself and to the rest of the world. But in the arms of a broken man, can he find acceptance...and love?

Going home has different meanings to everyone. For Randy it means spending as much time on his family’s ranch and with his sister before he comes to fighting blows with his father. He has decided that his most recent injury will be best mended at this home. After just a few days he sees that his father will not allow it, but the neighboring ranch may just be the place he was always looking for and never knew would exist for him.
Hardin Stables is a bit different from most. The owner has a soft place in his heart for the unwanted and strays in general. Knowing what it is like to be cast aside Les has opened his home and heart to those. Les also knows from personal experience that good can come from bad experiences. He sees in Randy exactly that. In opening his home Les is hoping to open Randy’s mind and heart.
There is a whole lot of sexy goodness going on in the pages of No Going Home. There were also a few things that were loose and a little too easy going for me. I like difficult struggles that my main characters have to conquer. One of the struggles here was Randy coming out of the closet. It was Randy’s own struggle. It seemed to me that everyone he knew already knew he was gay and completely okay with it. That left little tension.
