Bryan Mills has fantasized about cowboys all his life. Real cowboys, that is. He even dresses in what his roommate calls “cowboy drag” when he visits his favorite bar, in the hope of attracting the attentions of a genuine cowboy. But all he usually finds are posers and guys his own age.

Then one night, to his surprise, Curtis Hansen buys him a beer, and Bryan has no doubt this is the real thing. Curtis is a rugged, gorgeous man who is every bit a cowboy. He even owns his own ranch. What follows is about the most amazing night of Bryan’s young life.

But can they move beyond a night of incredible sex when Bryan admits to Curtis that the only horse he’s ever ridden was a birthday party pony? And that he’s nothing but a poser himself? Maybe, just maybe, Curtis can find the real cowboy inside Bryan, and they can ride off into the sunset together!

First Edition published as The Real Thing in Riding Double by Dreamspinner Press, 2011. 

The Real Thing by author B.G. Thomas is a cute fast paced read. Bryan wants an older cowboy to notice him. Granted Bryan is 20 and not a cowboy. But at the bar this one older cowboy got his attention. He wants to be wanted by him. Taking some mental notes he sets off to make his fantasy come true.
Curtis picks up Bryan because he looks young. But the real deal as well. When he finds out Bryan isn’t a real cowboy Curtis has to decide if having a real cowboy is more important than the man he has in his arms.
I liked this one a lot. It is about having a dream going for it and trying to make it work. I like that Bryan knows who he is and what he wants. Curtis even learns a new trick or two from him.
This story is a cute romance that really was sweet to read.
