An Isolated Range (Stories from the Range) by Andrew Grey

This is not the first story I read in the from the Range series, and I’m quite surprised the author always manages to make them different remaining nevertheless inside the confines of the same range, same town and more or less same circle of supporting characters.

This time it was the time of Marty and Quinn, two different young men, and yes, I have to highlight young cause Marty is at his first year of college and Quinn is a veterinary assistant. They are still in that moment of life when their future is in front of them, but they haven’t yet decide how to approach it. Marty is gay but he doesn’t have the courage to come out to his family, with his father a republican senator who is promoting laws against the LGBT rights. On the other side there is Quinn, maybe a little older than Marty, and his father is not a public figure, but still, he is an homophobic who disapproves of his son working for a gay couple like Dakota and Wally.

Another point that made this novel different from the others is that, for most of the novel, more than half, the relationship between Marty and Quinn remains innocent, to a level where they barely kiss. It was sweet, and call me ingénue, but to me it was right for the age and the character of the two men, I didn’t see them as ready to have a roll in the hay like that, without having the time to come to pact with their own life and desires.

A nice addition to a series that is already an aficionados for many readers.
