A man of few words, Joe is a hard-working farmhand who likes his simple, uncomplicated life. Ed is satisfied with his existence as an auto mechanic, but thrilled when an unexpected development in his life allows him to help Joe realize a dream.
It forces them, however, to reevaluate the casual, undefined nature of their relationship. They’re too macho to speak of love, and neither would acknowledge he doesn’t really mind when it’s his turn to bottom. When life throws them a curve ball, and the rules of their game get old, Ed tries to take every aspect of their relationship up a notch. Can Joe adapt to the open sentimentality Ed’s injecting into their relationship, let alone the new spice in their bedroom activities?
This is a previously published story that has been rewritten, expanded, and re-edited.

I found Cultivating Love to be a pretty good story, even though I sometimes got the main characters mixed up. That's on me, though.
I liked the characters and was glad so see some of the events that concerned their families unfold. One event was predictable, however.
The plot seemed choppy in spots and I felt overall it was a little rushed.
All that being said, I liked the story and would recommend it. On a scale of 1 to 5 I give it a 4.
