Luke and Simon met while in college and have been together every since. When Luke returned home to take over the family ranch, Simon was right there with him. Now, ten years later, the men are learning just who their friends really are.

Morning Report by Sue Brown was a very good story. Luke and Simon have been in a relationship for ten years. Although they live in a small Texas town, the men believed that as long as they did not flaunt their relationship, everything was fine. When the new minister shows up and things changed, the men’s lives changed as well.

This is a story that has a realistic feel to it. The stress felt by not only the main characters, but also many of their family and employees, is wonderfully portrayed by the author. All the emotions Simon and Luke portray are believable and readers will understand Luke’s difficulty in forgiving their so-called friends. Unfortunately, the men also have to face problems on the ranch, as a result of the sudden bigotry. Just as unfortunate is the fact that these are all problems that many have to face in reality.

Morning Report is not all angst, though. Luke and Simon are deeply in love and the strong chemistry between them leads to some intense sex scenes. Readers should be aware that there are moments of light BDSM in the story, as well.

While the ending of Morning Report seemed a little rushed, that will not keep me from looking for more stories by this author.
