Foster is tired of milking cows.  All he wants is to get away and live somewhere he can be himself.  When his father passes, Foster has to put his dreams on the back burner and realizes that what he wants has always been right in front of him.

Andrew Grey brings the readers another well done story that will pull them in from the first page.  Foster and Javi are the main characters in Planting His Dream.  Both have a lot in common.  Foster’s family has owned their farm for many generations.  Through thick and thin, they have worked the land, but Foster wants something different from his father.  Javi’s family also works the land but, unlike Foster’s family, Javi and his family travel from state to state picking other people’s produce.  Javi wants something different as well, but is worried about leaving his mother and siblings with a father that drinks.  When the two are brought together, there is an instant attraction but Javi is only there for a short time and Foster goes back to his old life. 

A lot happens in a year and, when Javi and his family return to the Gaylon farm, Foster is running things.  The men are a year older and the feelings that started to blossom when they first met are even stronger now.  The men also have even more responsibilities now than a year ago and it seems as if these two will never find their happily ever after.  

Planting His Dream has a lot of ups and downs and, more than once, I could not keep from crying.  Foster and Javi are the type of characters that will have you pulling for them from the beginning and the passion that exists between them is intense.  I liked watching both these men come into their own.  I will admit I did not think this story would end well but I liked the way the author wrapped everything up.  This story is one that fans of the author will love and, if you have not yet tried anything by this author, I would suggest you give Planting His Dream a chance.
