Legal Tender by Andrew Grey

andrew potter
Legal Tender doesn’t go far from the other books in this series, cute young man with a bit of drama in his past meets another cute man, slightly older and with an aura of security that will give stability to their relationship. And so why I continue to read them? They are like peanuts! Or strawberries, or any other addictive food. You know how they will taste, but nevertheless you need to take another and another and another.

Legal Tender is sweet and comfortable; the same comfort Timothy so desperately needs in a relationship. Timothy is still young but he had a tragic experience in his past that is causing him trouble in his love life. He needs someone patient, passionate but not pushing, someone who can go to the slow pace Timothy needs to take. You would expect for the man to fit the bill to be maybe older and lived, but instead Joiner is just out of college, the younger lawyer in his firm. But the safety in Joiner lies in his attitude and in his quiet behavior.

Another nice aspect of this novel is the gay neighborhood that is basically colonizing a small city area: from the first novel to this one, we have artists, lawyers, shop owners (but of sophisticated businesses like wine shops and antique galleries), all of them buying and restoring Queen Victoria and Queen Anne houses. It’s almost like a fairy tale land, where the LGBT community can live happily ever after. And in most of those houses you can find treasures, like for Timothy who found a cash of gold coins in the attic. Fairy tale indeed you would say, but it’s not long that I have read of a woman who found a Renoir in her attic, so nothing is really impossible.
