Welcome to Burreela, New South Wales. Population: more animals than humans. Although most (human) occupants are trying to get out of Burreela, the tiny town is the perfect place for veterinarian Michael Stone to break out of the bad habits that almost cost him the most meaningful part of his life: his profession. Michael is struggling to regain his balance after hard personal losses and two years of promiscuity and drug abuse. He's not prepared to meet Ryan Mitchell, a nice guy who won't take no for an answer, whose patient pursuit leaves Michael less and less inclined to keep refusing. But Michael's bad habits aren't that far behind him. Can Michael hold himself together enough to be the man Ryan needs, or will he lose his equilibrium while trying to be man enough to hold on to the one he loves?
Good points. I've read this book twice. The writing style and storyline were engaging enough so that I felt something. Even if that something is anger. The second time around the seams in the story started to show. We hear about Michael's downward spiral after his mum died but it's not really explained what beyond that fact pushed him to his extreme actions. Was it because his dad rejected him too? He still had his sister as support so he wasn't totally alone. Having never been in this situation I don't pretend to understand.

Now to the anger. The friend, Adrian, pissed me off. What true friend brings drugs hundreds of miles to visit an addict?! Jen and her husband pissed me off. Reconciliation is a two way street. Michael's father obviously a vile man, who gave no indication of wanting to make up with his son so why pressure Michael into putting himself in hurtful/harmful situation. Primarily it seems to make themselves feel better. Michael self destructive behavior near the end royally pissed me off. He seemed to have been steeling himself for the worst, but cut himself off from the support he needed to cope namely, Ryan. Also for such a long-term addict he probably should be in a program to learn how to deal with stressors which can trigger him. Moving to the country doesn't magically heal you.

Overall I recommend this book. Not many authors have the ability to make you truly engage with characters.
I liked this one a lot. Both main characters and those surrounding them are described in well-rounded and lively detail. Michael has flaws and issues, some of which he'll always struggle against, but he tries not to wallow and ultimately won't be defined by them. Ryan has led an easier and more charmed life, but he has a streak of realism that allows him to understand Michael and to stand by him.

It's a rather quiet and tender love affair, as they often are in real life, but never boring. Highly recommended.
The character development is good, except for the missing back story. Michael has hidden pain and fear, but the reader is left guessing about most of it. When a few details are revealed, they hardly seem sufficient to explain the extremes in Michael's life. The story reaches it's climax and the reader is left wondering what all of the angst was for. The revelations just don't add up and while the HEA end was nice, the story just missed the mark for me
This was a very nice novel above all for the outskirts feeling. If not for the use of machines and the tales of life in the big city Sydney, the way of life in small town Burreela was like that of 50, maybe even 100 years before. People know each other, everyone has at least a brother, a cousin, a friend, who was in school with the neighbour, and even the smallest secret is actually the talk of the town. Michael is a graduate vet student who knows he has to change his life; a drug addicted and party boy when he was in Sydney, probably due to the refuse he received from his own father when he came out to them, Michael decides to detached himself from temptation accepting the position of assistant vet in Burreela. What Michael didn't expect maybe is that most of the work is farm work, and Michael finds himself spending day after day travelling from farm to farm, and above all he meets Ryan, who owns an horse ranch and who is very interested in Michael, and not for his vet skills.

Ryan was a former Sydney police officer who came back in Burreela to help his brother and father; he doesn't vent him being gay, but his family knows and Ryan is also at a point in life when he would love to be in a commitment relationship; what a convenience that the new guy in town is obviously gay and unattached. Ryan sets out to slowly wooing Michael into his life and bed.

As I said I liked the feeling of the story, it was slow paced but nice, Michael and Ryan meet but don't immediately fall in bed, letting the reader, and probably Michael, adapt to the new event, so that, when the fact will happen, both of them are ready and primed.

The incursion of modern life, i.e. evil big city, is sudden and almost frightening, Michael will understand that his self-imposed exile is also his safe-shelter, and that there is nothing in the big city that he cannot find in small town, on the contrary, small town has more options for him than any other place in the world.
Michael moves to a small town to escape his past life and the temptations of the city. He starts working as a vet and meets Ryan when he is sent to tend his injured horse. There is a slow build to the relationship between the two men but they eventually establish a comfortable relationship that is not solely based on sex. There is not a lot of emotional discussion between Michael and Ryan but still a sense of depth to their feelings.
As per the title of the book, things start to come undone as Michael's past raises it's head and he heads back to the city to sort some things out, leaving Ryan behind.
There is a strong focus on family and forgiveness. The emotional fallout from Michael's father's reactions to his sexuality, the acceptance shown by Ryan's family, the bond between siblings and the strength of friendship.
As an Australian I loved the settings and Aussie references and language. The language was very 'naturally' Australian, not the forced, over-the-top expressions that are not typical of real Australian communication. I do have to admit to not being a very good Aussie though because I had never heard of tent-pegging.
Contrasting beauifully between life in a country town in rural Australia and life in the city, this book also highlights the contrasts and displacement felt by the main character, Michael, as he struggles to reconcile his past with his hopes for the future and his feelings for Ryan. Readers who enjoy stories set in rural Australia with well-rounded characters and honest, true-to-life dialogue and emotional build-up will really enjoy this novel.
