I loved the depths of the emotional connection between the two men and the love they felt for each other. Every tear shed, smile and laugh I connected with the MC’s.

The romance was fabulous, sexy and so hot. I loved watching their story play out in the pages within the setting of the beautiful farm. Cardeno C. is an author I'll be keeping a look out for. McFarland's Farm is a gay romance you shouldn't pass up!

Cardeno C tells great stories. They're sexy, sweet, moreish and satisfying and that's why they get high ratings from me. A Cardeno book is my go to happy place when I want to read something really feel good. ...I always know that I'm going to get loveable characters, a great (hot) romance, a well thought out back story, just the right amount of conflict to stop the story going into the realms of saccharine, tummy rolling love scenes and last but not least; the perfect happy ever after that never fails to leave me sighing happily. ...I'm getting really enamoured with these recent paranormal, shifter books that Cardeno has started writing and the 'Mates' series is turning out to be a very addictive read. ...There was a fulfilling build up of sexual tension but this was when the passion and romance side of the story came into it's own and as always it was pure Cardeno magic.... The chemistry between them sparked, the heat level reached boiling point and the sex was cold shower worthy, but still, always bolstered by a real sense of romance and love.

Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews

And while to some extent, shifters are shifters, there are some unique aspects to these particular individuals in the world that Cardeno C. has created.

They say good things come in little packages and this beautifully written sexy novella certainly fits the bill....I loved this storyline and ... delicious and altogether addictive characters. This novella gave a whole bite size of steamy lusciousness that left me begging for more. Five stars!
