Guitar player Spud is the go-to guy for the band, giving comfort and aid whenever and wherever he can. All that changes when the new guy, Caidon, comes aboard. Caidon wants to tour and play and he wants Spud, and he’s not afraid to go against the band to do it.
The guys in the band are not so pleased with the idea of Spud going monogamous, and they’re not sure they need Caidon interfering with any of the other band politics. Can Caidon and Spud get together to play beautiful music, or will they hit a sour note before they ever find common ground?

This was a fun way to pass the time. I have long been a fan of this author’s cowboy characters and Caidon and Spud are no different. The book is really a quick read and I wish there had been a bit more to the story line, as you never do really learn exactly what causes all the hard feelings between Caidon, Spud and Joe. The characters of Caidon and Spud are sweet together when they are not having sex, which is rare. I like how Caidon treats Spud with respect and as a person, not just someone to meet his needs like the rest of the band did. The secondary characters are not too much a part of the story except for Steve who ends up supporting the men’s relationship. Did I mention the men have a lot of sex? In fact they have so much sex that it’s almost easy to forget the story line isn’t just that. I think if the sex doesn’t bother you, this will be a fun story to read during these long hot summer days, when a cowboy and cold drink sound good anytime.
