After a devastating breakup with the man he thought he’d spend his life with, Flynn Webb takes a vacation to a South Dakota dude ranch. It’s something completely different from anything he’s done before, and it helps that it’s as far away from his ex as possible. Trapped in his own depressive thoughts, Flynn is surprised to meet Grayson Harland. Not only is Grayson a sexy cowboy—one fifteen years younger—but he’s the most charming man Flynn has ever met.

Flynn doesn’t have much experience with being seduced, and he has even less with guys like Grayson taking an interest in him—and Grayson is definitely interested. What begins as a fling while visiting iconic South Dakota sights soon develops the potential for much more. But Flynn is afraid that falling in love again so soon—and with a man so much younger—will lead only to another catastrophic heartbreak. Luckily for them both, Grayson isn’t giving up without a fight.

States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.

Rushing Love by Meg Bawden is part of the States of Love series. Can be read as a stand alone and understood just fine.
In this story we have Flynn he has been dumped by his boyfriend of 19 years. To make matters worse the guy he got dumped for is 10 years younger than him. So he is now going to a dude ranch in South Dakota trying to forget his troubles. He is 36 years old and a software designer. He feels like he is much older, and just used up at this point.
Grayson is a forward kinda guy. He goes after what he wants with an all in attitude. Flynn likes the cheeky Grayson but he is not sure he is ready for him. Grayson on the other hand has no problems showing Flynn exactly what he wants from him.
Flynn is really hung up on the fact that Grayson is much younger than him. But Grayson is determined to show that age does not make a difference when love is involved.
Over all this is a good story. I felt the chemistry was okay only. I think that is because the story felt rushed to me. I think it needed to slow down and draw out some sexual tension, that would have made me the reader more connected to the story. But it is a good story. Cute about getting a second chance at love where you least expect it.
