Stories from the Range: Book Six
Since mustering out of the Marines, Gordon Fisher has been off the grid and out of money, so when a group of ecoterrorists promises him big bucks to set some mistreated animals free, Gordon agrees. Unfortunately, the animals are Wally Schumacher's large cats, and one of them decides to take a chunk out of Gordon.
Still hurting from a breakup, Mario Laria finds Gordon and escorts him back to Dakota's ranch at gunpoint, only to have his heartstrings tugged on when he discovers Gordon is living out of his truck.
With Dakota doctoring, Wally wanting Gordon gone for good, and Mario falling in love, Gordon hangs on for the ride. But what looms on his horizon threatens to tear apart what little hope he's found. No one knows Gordon's past keeps him up at night, and the military wants answers he just can't give.

If there is one thing Andrew Grey does well it is cowboys! When he adds in a broken marine you know you have a winner
Mario was left behind when his last lover left for pastures with his work and a new man. Ever since he has been pining for what was and what still might be. Everyone one around him believes it is time he moved on and got over David but there hasn’t been anyone to move on to.
Gordon left the marines after losing his two best friends and his memory of how it happened. Down on his luck and in need of the money he lets himself get involved with a group of animal activists who send him to free Wally and Dakota’s big cats. Mario catches Gordon in the act and after having his wounds doctored keeps him on the ranch for the night to talk to the Sheriff.
Gordon quickly realises how misled he was by the group and that the animals on the ranch are well taken care for. Mario has a soft heart and when he discovers that Gordon has been living in his car he brings him back to the ranch and offers him a job. Wally is still furious about the previous nights activities and Gordon will have to work hard to earn his trust.
That Mario and Gordon manage to get together whilst battling with PTSD, activists, major trust issues and an ex that turns up out of the blue is testament to their feelings for each other. I was pleased that once Mario made up his mind he was diving straight in and offered Gordon his support. He slowly got the man to trust him and relax. This turned out to be a couple that really were good for each other.
It’s not all plain sailing to get to their HEA. Gordon is missing memories from an important and devastating time in his life. When he ends up in a life or death situation and they start returning he just might be able to give the military the answers to their never ending questions.
Andrew McFerrin is easy to listen to and speaks very clearly. I did feel his narration was a little slow which in turn sometimes made it feel a little disjointed.
