Book Description

All Paul wanted was a way to earn some money and a place to hide from his past. Working at Nolan’s isolated mountain cabin was never supposed to mean anything more. But as the two men slowly earn each other’s respect, Paul finds himself fighting against emotions he never thought he’d feel again. Emotions that a would-be tough guy can never, ever admit out loud...

A story of two men searching for themselves in the wilderness, and discovering a love only they can understand, ‘Tough Guy’ is Nate Tanner’s novella of raw, realistic m/m romance. This 12,000-word story contains adult situations and is not suitable for minors.

This tale is wordy - it starts with lots of words where a few would have done, and seems a bit pretentious. I persisted, despite already being put off by the opening para, but it dragged like something without legs/wheels. After the umpteenth nite of the leads sitting around doing nothing much, following a hard day's work, I got bored waiting for something to happen. Had I paid for it, I'd have been after a refund at this point, but it had been a freebie, so I simply deleted it.

3.0 out of 5 stars The beginning, the sex, and the end! 13 Aug. 2014

It's a nice short story, or should I say "cute?" To sum it up it's a story about two men alone in a secluded cabin in the wilderness. While waiting for a snow storm to pass by they spend their days talking and having sex. Once the snow storm is over one of them leaves and "The End." This is pretty much it.
Like I said it's a cute little story about 2 guys trapped in a cabin and having sex. I wouldn't say that I disliked it. It was okay. I mean, Nolan is a funny guy but we know absolutely nothing about him while Paul is a little bit insecure but know what he wants. We do get a little bit about Paul's background but it's just about what happened before he meets Nolan. So it's still pretty vague. And the ending... when I finished the book I thought to myself "well, okay, now what? Is that it? Fine, gonna grab something to eat."

Good short story. I would have liked to know more about Nolan's backstory. I only gave it three stars because the ending was ambiguous. I like closure, whether it's happy or not. This one just left me hanging.

A tale of two guy smoking hot guys in a in a sexual fantasy worthy of Nate Tanner, who has become one of my favorite m/m romance authors. Although the end is bittersweet, the characters have a memorial experience. Again,kudos to Nate,
