Amnesia by Sean Michael
Who wouldn’t want a do over?
When Thaine wakes up in the hospital after a bull-riding injury, he immediately asks for his lover, Jerry. He has no idea who this man next to his bed is, despite the fact Drew insists they have been an item for the last five years.
Thaine’s best friend, Jesse, calls Jerry. He thinks it’s a pretty crappy thing to do to the new boyfriend, but tells himself it’s unlikely Jerry will come after so many years. He also doesn’t get why Thaine would pass up the opportunity to be with Drew since he’s young, optimistic, and hardworking. In short, everything Jesse ever wanted in a man.
Jerry still carries a torch for his cowboy, so when Thaine asks to go home with him to recover, Jerry agrees. At first they pick up their intense physical relationship right where they left it before the breakup. Jesse, in turn, consoles the now homeless Drew and offers him quite a bit more than a shoulder to cry on. But in the back of all the men’s minds loom Thaine’s lost five years.

Cat gives this one 5 Meows with a 5 Purr heat index...
Thaine is a bull rider who gets knocked off and has Amnesia as a result. He has forgotten his current lover Drew completely and wants JJ, his ex from 5 years ago. Jerry still has feelings so he comes to Thaine's side when called and takes him home for recovery. Drew is devasted that Thaine doesn't remember him at all and even more shocked at how he treats him like trash when he wakes up. Drew is left with nowhere to go and no job or anything since he had been with Thaine for 5 years. Jesse, Thaine's best friend hires Drew to help on his ranch.
This is a sexy story about 4 men whose lives are all affected by the accident. We get the viewpoint from all four of them throughout, and it's easy to follow. Some of the dialogue got confusing of which man was speaking when they were alone as there weren't any tags but it didn't hurt the story. The part of the story I liked most was that when Thaine woke up, he remembers his and Jerry's last meal and JJ has it sent all the way to them in the hospital.
If you like cowboys, rodeos, bull riders, recovery, friends to lovers, second chances and lots of hot man-sex you will love this.
