Publisher's Summary

"Nothing is going to keep us apart."

Dalton Powell has been living a lie. Terrified of coming out as bisexual, he’s given up on romance. Instead, he finds solace in hard work on his family’s struggling ranch. But his life is turned upside down as his past mistakes come back to haunt him - and steal his heart.

Thomas Reed never expected to come back to Hidden Creek. Old wounds are reopened as he returns to his family’s ranch and finds himself face to face with the last person he ever wanted to see again: Dalton. Despite his initial distrust, Thomas can’t deny the overpowering attraction between them.

Letting go of the past is hard when their families’ generations-long feud throws up obstacles at every turn. Forgiveness never comes easy, but they are determined to prove to their families that love really can overcome anything. But can they hold themselves together long enough to succeed?

Welcome to Hidden Creek, Texas, where the heart knows what it wants, and where true love lives happily ever after. Every Men of Hidden Creek novel can be enjoyed on its own, but keep an eye out for familiar faces around town! This audiobook contains romantic horseback rides, a thrilling rodeo, and a kiss that could finally end a bitter feud.

So chapter 17, 18 and 19 are out of order... i dont know why? So 19 should be heard after 16, then 18 and the 17...seems like something that could be fixed! despite that hiccup its a very cute and fun listen:)

Out of order?

I can't figure out if the chapters were edited together out of order by mistake or if the author intentionally wrote some of them out of order. But so far chapters 17 through 19 are a jumbled mess of things happening out of sequence. It's a little more than frustrating because the book is otherwise amazing.

Great enemies to lovers story

Dalton and Thomas came from feuding families. There was a lot of history between them, and Thomas would've been glad to never see Dalton again. When circumstances change, however, Dalton and Thomas find they have a lot more in common than they think and they really enjoy spending time together. These guys were really sweet together and were a little bit swoon-worthy. It was so nice to see Dalton open himself up and find his happiness, and it was great to see Thomas realize that being home wasn't as awful as he thought it would be. Thomas was such a patient and great character, and Dalton was a perfect match for him. This was a great addition to the Hidden Creek universe. Nick J. Russo did an awesome job narrating.

Great Story

I received an ARC of this audio for my honest review. This is my first book by this author and I’ve enjoyed listening to the story of Thomas and Dalton. Thomas decides to go to college away from the town where he was bullied in school for being gay. Dalton is afraid to come out to anyone since he saw what happened to Thomas and he feels guilty for not coming to his defense. Thomas is called back to the town he wanted to escape from due to his family needing his help with the ranch. When a pregnant cow goes missing Thomas goes out to locate her. While he is out there he comes across Dalton riding his horse. Thomas calls him over and they start talking when Dalton tells him he will help find the cow. This is when feelings start to show between the two men when they are all alone watching the sunset.

I truly loved this new Men of Hidden Creek audiobook from Blake Roland and Nick J Russo! It was a classic enemies to lovers story with some angst thrown in for good measure. It was well written and I loved the main characters! You can never go wrong with a Russo narration!

Delicious Cowboys

After reading the ebook of this one, I was thrilled to listen to the audiobook. The narrator does a great job of really pulling you into the story and taking the journey right along with the characters. What a great way to start off a new season of this wonderful series. I love that it has cowboys with the added benefit of enemies to lovers. Thomas and Dalton are both wonderful characters with great chemistry and a strong connection. The families have been feuding for generations and I really enjoyed watching Thomas and Dalton overcome all of their obstacles to get their HEA! I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.

Welcome to Hidden Creek

Welcome back to Hidden Creek, and to the wonderful men that reside there (and their families/friends)! Although this is the 4th "Season"/book 1, it can be read as a standalone (although the other books are AMAZING!!)!
In this book, we have a enemies-to-lovers, in Dalton and Thomas. Dalton has been in the closet forever, but when Thomas come backs to town, he has to decide whether its time to go after what and who he really wants, despite what their families will say.
This book is one with a little bit more angst than I normally like in a book, but the writing, the humor and the love that is in this book more than makes up for it. The characters, including the side characters are extremely well written (especially grandma!!!!) and you can't help but root for them!
The narration is absolutely perfect for this series! Nick J Russo did an amazing job giving life to the first book of this series to come to audio - and gave the characters such life!
This book is a wonderful trip back to Hidden Creek!

bit ridiculous but I finished it

Straight forward love story, with the bad guys acting bad end the good guys acting good. Biggest annoyance were the number of 180's. In a couple of months a lot of things turned into the opposite.
Narration was fine.

Love Wins

I was lucky to get promo codes for all of the books of Season 4 of Hidden Creek and Nick J. Russo does a great job of voicing these characters. He brings the story to life. This book by Blake Roland is primarily about two feuding/competing ranches and the failings they hide behind their façades until Dalton and Thomas come together by accident and chance. They become lovers and friends in spite of their families attitudes. This is a heart-warming tale of two lovers bringing their rival families together. Highly recommended for all lovers of Contemporary MM romance.

Gotta love a Cowboy...

I’ve never been to Hidden Creek before but now I’ve visited, I’ll definitely be back. I like the idea of a series written by different Authors.

I enjoyed this story, enemies to lovers is a favourite troupe of mine. Bullies coming good are always fun! I liked both MC’s and this is a really easy listen. As other reviewers have said, there’s definitely a taste of Romeo and Juliet running through the tale.

Nick J Russo is a fabulous narrator, if he’s doing the rest of the series it’ll be an auto buy for me.

Enjoyable enemies-to-lovers

This is the first book in this new season of the Men of Hidden Creek and it can be read/listened to as a standalone.

This was an enemies-to-lovers, slow-burn, first-time romance, with a bit of a Romeo and Juliet vibe, since Thomas and Dalton's families were enemies as well. It was entertaining, although, it felt like it dragged a bit at some parts.

I liked Thomas and Dalton and even if it took forever and a day for Dalton to get his act together and come out as bisexual to his family and the rest of the town, I wasn't all that annoyed with him. It was kind of understandable, seeing how the other kids behaved with Thomas back when they were still in high school. Thomas and Dalton had a lot of chemistry, though, and it was nice seeing them together.

I hated Harry, Thomas's cousin, from the start, and I hated him even more after what he did to the family who had taken him in. I was glad that even if both Thomas and Dalton's families could be very headstrong, they were willing to make an effort for their kids.

Nick Russo did a fantastic job with all the voices as always, especially with Dalton, who ended up being my favorite of them all.

This was a pretty enjoyable audiobook and I have no trouble recommending it!

My first trip to Hidden Creek, but not my last.

I'm always a bit cautious about bully turned boyfriend but here the Dalton was bully adjacent and being bullied himself at the same time as struggling with his own sexuality. Also the high school period only covers one chapter and is from Dalton's pov, so there is little time or inclination to build Dalton up as a bad guy. Especially as soon as the book hits the present it is obvious that Dalton is one of the good guys, sweet, hard-working, loyal, and in the closet. He's also ditched those friends that were dragging him down, determined not to be trouble.

This is a sweet story despite the initial bullying, a little too perfect in places (the end with the feuding families) but a tale that will put a smile on your face. Easy listening, indeed, and the narrator does a fantastic job.

A couple of niggles: I guessed the bad guy straight away. And there was some serious pronoun confusion where the author used he rather too liberally. The characters' names would have been preferable.

This book is something special!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.5 stars
🔥🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 4

This book is something special! Healing and Heartfelt!!

I loved this one. Dalton and Thomas have an unfortunate past and I really liked how Blake approached this. Bullying through silence can be just as bad as being the instigator. Dalton has regretted his treatment of Thomas for as long as he's known him and I felt for Dalton's secrets and heartbreak. Fear can cause people to do unwise things and I'm glad we got to see both Dalton and Thomas grow from their pasts, heal and become better and stronger for it. 

I felt for Thomas and his conflicting feelings and struggles as he tries to re-adjust to his new life back in Hidden Creek. He feels like a failure but must brush himself off and face his past to move forward. I like his journey and strength and how he continued to stay out and round even when it was hard. It was great to see familiar faces in this story and how the town has changed and is growing with the times and support. 

I felt this story had a little bit of an underlying Romeo and Juliet or really, Romeo & Romeo element to it, with the two waring and competing families, always trying to outdo each other and Dalton and Thomas coming together despite it all. I loved the Bi awakening Dalton was able to get through and the growth and healing both characters and their families when through was beautifully written. This was a truly special read.

I loved it and can't wait for more from Blake and more from Hidden Creek!!!

Thanks for reading!

good intro to Hidden Creek. first class narration.

I'm fairly new to the Hidden Creek stories, but I do love them. This is a Romeo and Juliet themed story, it was all , 'never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.' Or in this case, of Thomas and his Dalton!

I don't want to spoil this story for anyone so all I'm going to say is you will not be disappointed. It has everything Love, passion, arguments and humour. It's an entertaining story, made better by Nick Russo's narration. Dalton and Thomas stole my heart.

Well worth both a read and a listen to.

Sweet M/M cowboy love story

This is a great start to the new season of Hidden Creek stories. Two men, two families, homophobia, fear, and secrets. I loved the characters, especially Thomas. After being bullied by Dalton when they were in school, Thomas has now bulked up some and when he finds Dalton loitering outside the town's only gay bar, he decides to confront him. He is not going to let Dalton bully him or anyone else. Of course, it's a misunderstanding, but I loved how Thomas took a stand. Explanations and apologies follow. and the two men connect. Love will not be easy, however, since their families have been at war for years. It was a great read to see them fight for their love above all.

The narration was great with varied voices for the different characters, and fantastic emotional expression that matched the events of the story.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily left this honest review.
