Country singer Willie Meadows is a fake. He's never ridden a horse, and his "Western" gear comes from a boutique shop in LA. No wonder Wilson Edwards, the real man in those fake boots, is suffering creative block. Determined to connect with the music, Wilson buys a ranch in Wyoming to learn the country way of life, even if he has no intention of running the business. Then ...more

This was absolutely what I was in the mood for. It was typical Andrew Grey and that’s meant in a positive way. It was a feel-good story with a nice, fitting happy ending.

A Foreign Range is the latest in the Range series by Andrew Grey. The Range series is one of my favourites, as I’m sure everyone knows, lol, and I am pleased to have added this one to my book list!

A Foreign Range takes us back to Wyoming where our ‘new’ cowboy, Wilson, meets Kota, Wally, Haven Phillip and the rest of the gang we’ve all come to know and love. As the blurb explains, Wilson just wants a real life, not the fake psudo-life he’s had living in L.A.

Then you have Steve, a horse trainer t

A really sweet romance. I wasn't sure about the age gap, but Steve is mature, and older than his years especially after all he has endured. Wilson also never takes advantage of Steve or tries to manuipulate, or control him. I like how their feelings took time to develop, and while there was an inital attraction neither one feel deeply in love at first sight. Their love grew out of their mutual respect, and attraction. I like how well they work together, and how it isn't a story about one taking ...more

Another home run by Andrew Grey. I loved A FOREIGN RANGE for its plot, characters, very realistic situations to resolve, and the relationship between two men, whose personalities evolve as the book progresses.
When I started A FOREIGN RANGE it appeared that Wilson was the strong alpha man and Steve was very nearly a twink. However, initial appearances covered true strengths and weaknesses of these men. One thing about Andrew Grey, he doesn't hide the flaws of his characters by making them larger

This fourth book in the ‘Stories from the Range’ series is like the first three books in that it is also about two men who learn to stand up for themselves, be honest about who they are, and deal with the consequences. But it is also a little different, since Steve has to fight for his physical safety as well as his ability to be openly gay, in contrast to Wilson, who has it made financially - as a Country & Western Star - but is hiding the fact he prefers men so his fans will continue to li ...more
This was my favorite book in the series without a doubt. Willie Meadows is a successful singer but he has lived his life as a fake, singing about being a cowboy when he was born and raised in Osh Kosh. He finally decides to escape his hated lifestyle in LA and buys a ranch. Steve Peterson is running from his past and finds refuge at Wilson's ranch. I really enjoyed the growing relationship between these two men. Unlike in book #4, An Unsettled Range, I felt the relationship developed realistical ...more

I wasn’t sure I was going to like this title as much as the others in the series, so I requested it from lendle. It was pretty good, not the worst installment of the series, in my opinion, though nowhere near as good as the first two, and Volatile.
There was an age gap in this one as well, but it didn’t bother me due to the fact that the younger man in this has been through hell and it has aged him drastically. He knows what he wants, and he goes for it, there is not manipulation or force involv

Just Enough: Andrew Grey kicked the hay out of the paddy on this one. I would have rated it 5 stars, except the song lyrics were kind of hokey, but the story line was flawless. There was just enough stardom, music, suspense, connection to Range Series, love, pain, honesty and sex. All the characters from Maria to Steve and Willie were outgoing, perceptive and kind enough. The story seemed real enough, to me. I got to a point, I couldn't put the book down. I laughed, cried, hated and loved it all ...more

Wilson needs a break. He needs to find the real him and what he truly wants. But, he can’t do that in L.A. because he feels a fake, so he buys a ranch in Wyoming. Steve is in a desperate situation, he has turned up at a ranch for a job only to find the ranch has been sold, and the new owner doesn’t know what they are going to do with it. But, lucky for him, Wilson is a kind hearted man and takes him on as a c

The first for me in this series by Andrew Grey, I think I got lucky; the story was good, a little cinderfella, a little star-system, it never went over the top and mostly remained with a small-town/good neighbors feeling.

Wilson is almost at the point of burning out; a country singer who is not even able to ride, all his persona is a fluke. But Wilson is aware of that and it wasn’t what he dreamed; he wants a simple life, doing music, sharing it with the audience, but not selling his life to them

Another nice story in the range series. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first ones because, although Wally and Dakota made an appearance, this book was set outside of their own ranch. And, these characters, while nice, weren't as endearing to me.

Willie has been a country western singer for ten years when he finally decides to chuck the LA lifestyle and focus on himself by buying a ranch in Wyoming (next to Wally and Dakota). There he meets Steve, a young man who shows up to take a job with the
This was a nice break in the formula for this series. Wilson was a character that you wanted to like & see get a satisfying HEA. It was a little bit WTF-ery in places (especially when he wasn't recognised at times) but as I said, it wasn't as formulaic as some of the previous books in the series. I must admit that reading 4 of these books back-to-back in 5 days is begging for burn-out but a good author can write a series without boring the reader to tears. For example, I can read all of Mich ...more

Since I couldn't give this a 4.5 or so I gave it a 4. I love Andrew's books, ALL of them. This one for me was a good as the others in the series but for some reason left me feeling a little let down.
One thing that caught me in this book, I had to double check and Mario's boyfriend's name changed from David to Dan. Now I don't know if that is a typo OR maybe we have another book coming. Whatever it is, this book was still a great read.

Book 4 in this series. I've truly enjoyed each book in this series watching how the MCs develop. This book blended two of my fave themes, music and cowboys :) Basically this is a famous singer tired of the rat race and buys a ranch to get away. Along come young, sexy and down on his luck guy and the sparks begin. Definitely worth reading and continuing on with the series.

I enjoyed this one more than I did the previous book in the series. I liked Wilson and Steve and the story kept my attention. A bit too predictable and you could see what happened with Steve's father coming a mile away. Nice to see a little more of Wally and Dakota. Still debating the next book in the series.

I cannot tell you enough but if I read about another cowboy with writer's block, stuck in the closet, I'll do myself a mischief! Not in a fun way either. This book was just incredibly slow-going for me but I still pushed through to the end. (Where's my prize, dammit?!)
Andrew Grey delivers another wonderful story in his 'Stories from the Range' series and I can't get enough of them.

This was one of my favourites in the series. I loved Willie and Steve and thought they made a great couple. The drama in this was nice and the musician element helped.

Loved the new book in the range series! :D its even featured Shahrazad!
Horses, cowboys with long long legs, country music and barbecues: how can one NOT love the book?
Sweet, but I had one problem. I thought most country music came out of Nashville, but this guy's based out of LA. Weird.

A Foreign Range: Stories from the Range #4

By Andrew Grey

Mr. Grey does it again! He takes us back to the wild ranches of Wyoming and brings new characters to life and makes them so loveable you want to make them your best friend. He has created a new ranch, this one with horse training, and a scared young man that knows what he wants and a world weary country singer that thinks he can’t have what he wants.

Wilson Edwards wants to just be himself; he wants to be a cowboy, living on his own land, do

Steve Peterson has learned the hard way, at the hands of a maniacally abusive father, what it means to hide. He has done many things he is ashamed of to escape a life that would mean never being who he really was, that would never acknowledge that he was gay. On the run and living in fear of being returned to the prison that his former life was, he stumbles upon another man, desperately in need.

Wilson Meadows has a decision to make. Continue to live his life behind the carefully crafted

I read this a few weeks ago but didn’t have a chance to post. While in general the story is okay and I found that Steve’s villainous father was a bit much, one thing pushed this into the “worthy of flagging on the blog” range. It was Wilson. Wilson is a popular country music star who’s never been near a horse in his life. His best friend is his manager and VERY closely manages his life, making sure he’s seen in the right places, with the right people and certainly not with the WRONG people (aka ...more

This is the fourth book in the Range series and I for one love to revisit Wyoming and the hot and hunky men that call it home.

Willie Meadows needs a place where he can just be Wilson Edwards. The ranch he just bought in Wyoming is that place, the place where he can hopefully re-connect to the music again. And maybe re-connect with himself too.

Steve Peterson shows up at the ranch expecting a job only to find out that the ranch has been sold and no longer has any horses for him to work with. After

I enjoyed this M/M romance that featured truly unique MCs with interesting, comprehensive character development. Steve and Wilson have little in common except a longing to connect with someone special who will stand by them in the face of adversity so that they can live freely as gay men. To say that the road each of these deserving men would have to travel to reach that end is problematic would be a gross understatement. Despite their intense desire to find a partner, both men have equally vali ...more
