To me, a good plot has a blend of the two so that you're not overwhelmed and bored with one of them. A romance story that focuses on a bigot and has a sickenly happy couple is only entertaining for so long same with a story that is nothing but angst.

DEAD-SHOT
This is the start of a beautiful love affair. At least for me. Cattle Valley is a gay friendly town founded by a man whose son was murdered in a gay bashing. It is also a series of novellas, of which the first two are included here. I read a lot of gay romance, and enjoy almost all of it, but this one quickly rose to the top. I never watched soap operas, but this series could easily be one and I find myself hooked. The stories aren't deep, but they are dramatic, full of angst and addicting. The town is populated by a myriad of characters - all of whom are destined to get their time in the spotlight, and find true love, but in the meantime will pop up in the other character's stories.

The first story concerns Rio, Nate and Ryan from another series by the author (which I haven't read, but intend to look for now!). The trio is moving to Cattle Valley to settle down. Native American, heavily tattooed Ryan is the new town sheriff. Smaller, twink-like Nate is very compassionate and outgoing but also a total clotheshorse, with snobby tendencies. He quickly befriends the department store owner (who stocks actual cashmere sweaters!) who is also the victim of partner's abuse. Nate's efforts to find out who is abusing him, and Rio's quest to find his place in a town who doesn't need an ex-mercenary fill most of the novella. Along the way, we meet the town's other residents, their prospective love interests and enjoy lots of hot, hot sex! Really hot sex, that is pleasantly graphic too.

The second story concerns the new town reverend, Casey, and the "atheist" anti-social Hal. Casey needs a contractor to finish building the new church expansion since the last one had to pull out. Hal has a reputation for hating religion, but he's the only person left to ask. He agrees to complete the building when Casey assures him "I won't try to save you!" Hal's not really atheist, he's angry at God. The two fall in love, but can they overcome such a difference of faith? This one had a little less sex than the first story (where the men were already in a committed relationship), but was more tender. So far, I've liked all the main characters that have been introduced.

Cattle Valley has its own website, [...] that introduces the town, the people and their stories. Great site - almost makes the town sound real! There are 9 stories so far available as e-books, and two printed volumes. I really hope the publisher fast tracks more printed volumes, or I may just break down and buy them in e-book first. Patience is a virtue I don't seem to have much of - and this series is just too good. Highly recommended - I've already ordered Cattle Valley (volume 2)!

Rating: 7/10

PROS:
- The world has been described by other readers/reviewers as a "utopia," and that's exactly what it is. Bad guys get run out of town, and good guys get paired up (or in some cases, tripled up) in nice, neat little families.
- There's a whole roster of likeable characters introduced in these first two novellas. Almost every one of them is ridiculously sweet and selfless, and Lynne gives the impression that many of them will have their own stories later in the series.
- Lynne does a pretty decent job of individualizing the characters within the "perfect men" parameters. They're all wonderful and upstanding, but they're not all EXACTLY the same.
- Some of the dialogue is funny and cute, especially from Nate in the first novella.

CONS:
- There's not a lot of depth to the stories or the characters. (The faith element in the second novella struck me as particularly shallow, as in "not explored in enough depth.") At the same time, though, I found myself curious as to what would happen with the secondary characters whose various heartaches are mentioned in passing.
- The writing is better here than in Good-Time Boys, the only other Lynne book I've read (this one was written later), but there are still some annoying mistakes in the book's production. The one that irked me the most is random paragraph breaks in the middle of sentences. The misspelling of sexual fluid as "seamen" is pretty bad, too.

Overall comments: If you want realism, look elsewhere. If you want in-depth exploration of characters and/or plot, look elsewhere. If you want super detailed sex, look elsewhere. If you want light, fluffy romance with a touch of sex, lots of sweetness, and a decent amount of angst that's resolved quickly and leaves no emotional scars, this might fit the bill.

I just finished this book, the first in the series. I always do my reading each night in bed before I go to sleep, and I found that I was eager for bedtime to come so I could find out what would happen next. The characters are very enjoyable and likeable. I love the idea of a town where everyone is gay, but why are they all gorgeous? Can't some of them be like ordinary guys? Just a thought.

There are a few spelling/printing problems, but nothing major, and not enough to affect my enjoyment of the book. In fact, I just ordered the next two books in the series.
Rare
The threesome idea in the first book made me a little leery to buy these, however, after reading the first two chapters I couldn't put it down. Nate, who will become the town mother hen, is lovably involved in everyone's welfare. And the love between the boys, though seeming rushed at first, seems to be pretty solid. The second story about Casey a reverend for the church, and the self proclaimed atheist Hal make a nice little holiday tale about getting over differences. If you're hesitant about the series like I was, just pick up the first one and you'll be hooked.
