Brighton McKenzie inherited one of the last pieces of farmland in suburban Baltimore. It has been in his family since Maryland was a colony, though it has lain fallow for years. Selling it for development would be easy, but Brighton wants to honor his grandfather's wishes and work it again. Unfortunately, an accident left him relying on a cane, so he’ll need help. Tanner Houghton used to work on a ranch in Montana until a vengeful ex got him fired because of his sexuality. He comes to Maryland at the invitation of his cousin and is thrilled to have a chance to get back to the kind of work he loves.
Brighton is instantly drawn to the intensely handsome and huge Tannerhe’s everything Brighton likes in a man, though he holds back because Tanner is an employee, and because he can’t understand why a man as virile as Tanner would be interested in him. But that isn’t the worst of their problems. They have to face the machinations of Brighton's aunt, Tanner’s ex suddenly wanting him back, and the need to find a way to make the farm financially viable before they lose Brighton’s family legacy.

Eastern Cowboy is a fantastic book. Brighton and Tanner's story is amazing. It is a beautiful love story showing strength, love, passion, and a never give up attitude, Andrew Grey's books are always thought provoking even as they are entertaining. This one inspires hope and encouragement to never give up, to keep fighting for what you want. Mr Grey also knows how to write hot sexy scenes that will curl toes!! I always look forward to his books for his amazing story and characters. Brighton inherited a farm from his Grandfather who I thought from the will reading was awesome. Because of an accident Brighton's leg keeps him from running it properly. With his sister Brianne's help and his lawyer's suggestion to hire his cousin Tanner he makes a go of it, even in the face of his families negative attitudes. Tanner is quiet and shy but extremely attracted to Brighton. While Brighton is just as attracted to Tanner, he doesn't feel he is worthy of him. Both are scareed, emotionally and in Brighton's case physically as well. Over coming it, working on improving the farm, fighting the coming adversity will they be able to make it? This is a love story to get lost in between to men who were meant to find each other. The writing is always descriptive rich and the characters well developed when reading an Andrew Grey book. This one is no different. I highly recommend this one.
One part of Andrew Grey's stories I have come to love is the romantic build and secondary plots seem to fit seamlessly together. You can't remove one from the other and still have a compelling, heart-filled story, and it's a mark often missed. He also has this uncanny ability to create wounded characters that still have a sense of realism. They aren't impossible or out of reach (and when they are he still manages to humanize them). Eastern Cowboy blends spicy romance with, well, a western contemporary setting. It's not your run of mill, of here's a farm and some romance, it's perfectly set to show the trials they'll face and the obstacles they'll have to overcome to not only succeed on the ranch, but in their romance, too. Tension, a bit of mayhem, and sexual attraction are just the beginning to this duo. Andrew Grey is a seasoned writer and one I've personally grown to love as I continue to read through his back list. If you love M/M romance be sure to give him a chance. *I received a free copy in exchange for my opinion.
