Nothing Serious is another edition in the Nothing... series by Jay Northcote. The stories are…
The Good Fight is the first part in the Good Fight Series by Andrew Grey. The whole series is about Native Americans and how they find love. Apparently there are also gay men in this group and they are all looking for a partner in life. But to get it they will have to overcome racism, hardship and all other kinds of trouble.
Jerry Lincoln is the owner of a small IT firm in Sioux City. He has more work than he can manage and needs to take on some staff. That is how he meets John Black Raven, who turns out a great help but with his long hair and deep eyes also very distracting. But Jerry won’t allow himself to get personal with his staff and keeps it to gazing from the distance.
John is desperately looking for a job and is very grateful Jerry accepts him. Johns sister died about six months ago and her children are now in foster care. John really wants to take care of his niece and nephew, but even with the law on his side he is getting nowhere.
The attraction between the two men is unstoppable and they start growing closer together more and more. Jerry learns it is possible to be with someone and still maintain professional standards. John learns that he doesn’t have to do everything alone in life, sometimes it is a good thing to accept help from someone else. Jerry and John are soon caught up in a lot of red tape, fights about money and people blocking their way. Will they get what they want?
The main problem I am having with this story is the same problem I have had with all other Andrew Grey stories so far. Nothing really happens. Two guys meet, they like each other, there is some minor trouble along the way and then they end up together. No drama, no action, no nothing. Life is never that easy and never will be.
Now I know almost nothing about Native Americans, but even I could tell that Grey did little or no research in to this story. The way he described the tribe or anything related to these people made it clear that Grey knows almost nothing about Indians or their customs. Such a shame, it could have made this story a lot better.
So if you are looking for a simple, romantic story without much trouble, this is the one for you.
