Timothy left home when he was eighteen to get away from his reckless mother, but he never stopped visiting his grandfather, who taught him what love was all about. Now that Grampy has passed away, Timothy finds that the old man’s legacy is everything Timothy has dreamed of—and more.
Inside the house Timothy loves so much is a cache of coins with historical value… and a mystery, because one of them isn’t supposed to exist. In memory of his grandfather, Timothy sets out to make sure that the mystery and the coins are given their due honor. In his quest to keep the government from confiscating his grandfather’s legacy, he meets Joiner, whose interest in Timothy is as clear and open as Timothy is guarded. There are things about Timothy’s life and his past he doesn’t want anyone to know, not even the kind man who is helping him with the complications of legal tender.

Legal Tender is the next in the Bottled Up / Art series by Andrew Grey. As you know, this and the Range series are my favourites of his, and this book definitely makes the cut!
Legal Tender takes us back to Dieter and Gerald as Dieter meets his childhood best friend Timothy when he visits the home he grew up in, a house that happens to be two doors down from Dieter and Gerald.
From the very first you find out that something horrible happened to Timothy when he was younger, a secret that caused him to run not just from home but from all that knew him back then. And Joiner could not be more perfect for him. He’s a down to earth, kind, loving man who works with Gerald and Brian (lawyers from the earlier Art books, just encase you forgot 😉 ) as a new lawyer and is brought in on Timothy’s case where he is immediately smitten.
In Legal Tender you get to touch base with so many of the previous characters, including seeing Bobby and Kenny from Uncorked – Kenny is the office that helps deal with the ramifications of Timothy’s monsters showing up on his doorstep.
Legal Tender is a sweet, passionate journey of the soul where one man has to overcome the demons of his past so he can fully embrace his present and future. I have loved this series from the start but Legal Tender has to be the best one yet!
I look forward to more from Andrew, and thank him for letting me get my hands on a ARC copy of a truly wonderful M/M story that touched my heart as it made me want to reach for a fan, lol.
Andrew grew up in western Michigan with a father who loved to tell stories and a mother who loved to read them. Since then he has lived throughout the country and traveled throughout the world.
