Martin Long has plans and dreams, but they are derailed when his parents move and must sell their house. In need of a place to stay, fast, he answers an ad for a roommate, and even though the house needs work, the owner seems nice so Martin agrees to move in.

Gary Hunter is barely making ends meet, with mysteriously disappearing tips at work and tuition to pay. Disowned by his family and left with a house in need of repair, Gary desperately needs the extra set of hands along with the money.

When Gary confesses that his family disowned him for being gay, Martin makes his own confession that opens a world of possibilities. But Gary has paid a heavy price for being who he is, and Martin’s unwillingness to open up to his family puts strain on the fledgling relationship.

The Tales from Kansas novella series has another entry in Trapped in Oz. I’m not sure I can say it’s my favourite, at I’ve loved each of these stories, but it’s the one I can relate to the best. The gentle angst, the fear of coming out and subsequently loosing the only family you have, to the not wanting the rock the boat at work, all works together to form a wonderful story of two very compelling men.

Martin’s parents are moving not just away, but across the country and he only gets a two week notice. Since he lives in the upstairs portion of their home that’s been converted to a mini apartment, that’s a major issue for him. None of his friends need a roommate either! Then enters Gary. He’s in college, works as much as he can around his classes, and is in desperate need of a reliable roommate to help him in his home.

This is a sweet story of a love that builds as these two men move from meeting, to roommates, to lovers, to partners. We get to travel along with them as they overcome many obstacles, both eternal and internal. Trapped in Oz is a wonderful read and I love the ending! It’s a must read for any that enjoy love and HEAs. Thank you Mr. Grey for another story of hope, love, and yummy men.

ANDREW GREY 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. He has a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and works in information systems for a large corporation.
