Stories from the Range: Book Seven

Most of the time ranchhand David rescues stray cattle, but this time he and his fellow cowboys Wally and Haven save a stranded motorist. David is surprised to find his former high school classmate nearly frozen in his car. After learning that Brian Applewright’s boss fired him from his ranch for being gay, they invite him back to theirs to take a job.

David and Brian moved in different social circles at school, but working together brings them closer. However, David has a rocky history on the ranch. The foreman is his ex, and he only recently returned after a heartbreakingly unsuccessful attempt to find greener pastures. He can’t risk his heart getting close to anyone.

But on a ranch, nature has a way of forcing an issue. When a snowstorm threatens, David and Brian head out to mend a fence and round up some stray cattle. David gets injured, and they must survive in the snow, cold, and wind. It might be the start of a relationship… or the end of their lives.

FiveStarsChaotic Range is part of the Range series by Andrew Grey.  I love these books.  They are always about someone troubled who comes to the ranch and finds a home there.

It was written with warmth and love.  You could only feel sorry for Brian, he finds himself lost with nothing to look forward to, then he meets David.  Their relationship that develops is like so many in the series, but still has a way of making it into your heart.  All the characters from the other books are back and add so much to the storyline.

If your looking for a book that will give you warm and fuzzy feelings try this series.


I loved this story.  It was one where the community within the story was one of acceptance and respect.  I really enjoyed how David and Brian were able to feel their way through the situation they found themselves in.
David and Brian saved each other in more ways than one.  When Brian found himself at death’s door, David and his friends were able to come to his rescue.  Then, conversely, Brian was able to save David when he was injured in a snow storm.
While I wanted to pound the men that Brian worked with into the snow banks, I did appreciate that his “dismissal” was addressed and not just left hanging.  It helped to create a stronger sense of community.
Also, I really enjoyed how the workers/friends of David were able to say it how it is.  There was not sugar coating or hand holding. When he needed a kick, they gave it to him.
The love that these two share was not only genuine, but one where trials and tribulations were overcome together.  I enjoyed this story.
