URGH...I've learned an important lesson: as much as I love a Mary Calmes book, I must read in doses. Too much Calmes can lead to sudden irritation and aggravation. Man, if I didn’t stress enough in my review of “Timing”, book 1 of this series, I will just drive the message home...this series is EXACTLY the “Matter of Time” saga, but in Texas on a ranch. And just as she did with that series, Calmes blows a perfectly GREAT coupling by separating them to do their own thing in the follow up. GRRRR...You can’t make me FALL IN LOVE with Rand in “Timing” only to have him MIA for more than 1/2 the book in “After the Sunset”!!!!!I don’t care about Stef and how everyone loves him and every straight man suddenly wants to have gay-lovin’ with him. It irritates me reading about Stef being so friendly and charming that it actually comes across as flirtatious and inappropriate. I despise not having Rand around to balance out the aggravation that is Stef. If I wanted all those things…I would have reread MATTER OF TIME! GRRRRR!!!Fine. Stef. Rodeo. Family dramz. Homemaker. Done. The end. All I care about are the Rand parts...and those were just barely enough to carry this book. Annoyed.
