Love Means… Freedom by Andrew Grey

Another nice and pink glasses perspective story in the Love Means… series; this time is almost a retelling of Romeo and Jules, with farm boy Stone, disowned by his own father when he came out as a teenager, who falls in love for fund trust boy Preston, bratty 26 years old temporarily back at home while he recovers from a car accident that left him in a wheelchair.

Stone found shelter in Geoff and Eli’s farm, that is now also a horse therapy center. He arrived one winter night, almost frozen to death, and of course Geoff and Eli welcomed him, like Geoff did with Eli at first; with them are living also Robbie and Joey, from the previous book.

The story is pretty simple and sweet, when Preston first arrives to the farm to attend the horse therapy, he is in full bratty mode; Preston is not a bad guy, but he has never had to fight in his life; true, Preston’s father is not really supporting of his son being gay, but at least he has not disowned him. Preston has instead the full support of his mother, who doesn’t question when he falls in love for a stable guy. When Preston’s friend, Jasper, makes him realize how bad he behaved with Stone, it’s also the time when Preston realizes how cute Stone is, and their relationship blossoms quickly and sweetly.

It’s not their families, like in the famous Romeo and Juliet, that opposes to their love, but more their own fears. Stone fears to no being enough for Preston, Preston fears the commitment he is reaching with a guy he has just met. True, it’s Stone who decides to part from Preston, but it’s Preston who doesn’t really fight for their love. In any case the happily ever after is in front of them, they only need to catch it.
