AUTHOR: Andrew Grey
SERIES: Bronco’s Boy
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press

RELEASE DATE: Apr 9, 2019


Opposites attract on an overseas holiday, but trouble has hitched a ride.
While Bronco’s nightclub is closed for renovations, the owners invite the staff on a trip to Italy. Bartender Hank needs a roommate, and he’s had his eye on waiter Grant for a while, even if he’s had to keep his distance. But sharing such close proximity means sparks are sure to fly….
Grant has a problem saying no, and it’s led him into some less-than-healthy relationships. While he’s determined not to repeat his mistakes, it’s clear Hank is different.
They’re both willing to take it slow and explore the feelings building between them, but even in a foreign country, their pasts are catching up, and that could hurt more than just their budding romance.

Hank and Grant work at Bronco’s. Hank is a bartender and Grant a server. The club is closing for a month for renovation, and the owners have a vacation in Italy planned. Hank was supposed to go there with Danny, his boyfriend, but after a bad breakup, he needs a roommate to share the bills with him. Grant is invited to go with him, to be Hank’s roommate. The thing is, Grant isn’t sure that Hank likes him, so guess he will have to discover the answer in Italy.
Over and Back is book 5 on the Bronco’s Boy series by Andrew Grey.

Hank is a hunky bartender. He had a bad break up with his ex-boyfriend, Danny, who forbade him to date anyone, especially Grant. Hank is attracted to the sweet Grant and sharing a room with him for 2 weeks in Italy will be pure torture for him. I like Hank, he isn’t the stereotype of the hunky bartender, he’s more a huge teddy bear. He’s really gentle and kind with Grant. He’s more fragile than what I thought at first, and I like that about him.

Grant is a cute little twink. He’s a good man, a good server. He’s kind and sensitive. His last relationship was toxic at the end for Grant, and some trauma settled inside Grant, but he fights back and tries to find his footing in life, to be himself without fears. The opportunity to go to Italy is something that he would never have done alone, and being with Hank is the cherry on the cake. I adore Grant, he is adorable, cute and fierce. He seems to be fragile, and he is fragile, but he’s also very strong and fierce, he’s blunt, he isn’t scared to speak his mind, and I love that about him. He’s not a damsel in distress—he’s a fighter.

I adored those two guys. They’re a good match and a good fit. I adored that it was Grant, the cute twink, who protected Hank, the hunk bartender. I love when nothing is like what we see, so I loved that the author mixes their roles and appearances.

The plot and the story was very good; we follow them on their trip to Italy. It was well described, I had the feeling of being there with them actually. The writing was dynamic and fluid, and I had a good time with them.

Over and Back is book 5 in the Bronco’s Boy series, but it can be read as a standalone. I didn’t read the 4 previous books in the series (not yet), and I didn’t have difficulties in reading this one and getting attached to the characters.

4 Stars for them
