Song of the Lonesome Cowboy

Song of the Lonesome Cowboy - Lynn Kelling This book is another example of just what [a:Lynn Kelling|5766021|Lynn Kelling|] excels at. In this case she dives deep into the mind and emotions of Tucker Reynolds, an upcoming country music star just ending a big tour and at the end of his rope. The pain and secrets he is hiding from his best friend and band mates refuse to let go.

In love with his straight best friend and bandmate Mags, who can be as giving at times as he is selfish almost all the time, forced to hide his sexuality, while on the verge of country music superstardom, Tucker's secrets just might kill him one way or another. Jess, a musician in his band, is the one person that seems to see the suffering and reaches out, but Tucker fears dragging anyone else into his nightmare.

Yes, there is romance, but it is really the story of Tucker working to survive and overcome what has been taken from him and what he has done to himself in order to pursue his dream and help those closest to him. It is not easy being in Tucker's head, living his despair and hoping for him to find his strength.

Once again, this is not a story for the faint of heart, but was definitely a journey with taking.
