Book Description

When Michael accepts a company assignment overseas, he doesn't count on being dumped by his boyfriend on the way to the airport. The breakup is a bad omen--Michael's time in Europe would be one long misery of loneliness and corporate backbiting if it weren’t for his friendship with his coworker, Stephan.

When he finds out Stephan wants more than friendship, Michael is torn. Even if he chooses to risk his one bright relationship in Europe for a chance at love, when this project is over, isn't his only choice to say goodbye?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book! August 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After being dumped on the way to the airport, Michael leaves for the Netherlands for a job that will last six months. On the flight he meets a lady who helps him see that it was probably for the best. Once he arrives he meets Stephan, a co-worker, and they quickly become friends. The relationship between Michael and Stephan builds into a stronger commitment the longer they spend together. But is it enough to last after the six months are up?

I enjoyed the story and really liked the setting being in the Netherlands. The detail in the scenery was almost like being there. Mr. Grey brought to life two men that fit together very nicely and seemed to really fall in love at the right time in their lives. It is always a joy to read one of his books and this definitely will not be the last.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a treat July 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Another awesome book by Andrew Grey.. Michael heads to the Netherlands for a job and get,s more than what he bargained for. He meets Stephan and they become fast friends which could be a good thing and could be a bad thing.. Michael is only there for a short time for his job. I have never been to The Netherlands but after reading this book I would love to go.. Andrew really captured what I thought the country was going to be like..Again Andrew has outdone himself in writing a new and exciting book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mmm...Dutch Treat! June 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved it. Another wonderful read. Although Stephan and Michael were hot together, I don't know why but I loved Devon more than Stephan. Devon just seemed to have more of a personality, he was fun and sexy and I just couldn't understand what was so special about Stephan, the sob story just didn't add to his appeal for me personally.
Oh and I was into all the work place drama! I couldn't get enough. I just wanted to beat Curtis over his narrow minded head -chuckles-

5.0 out of 5 stars Dutch Treat by Andrew Grey September 6, 2011
By Elisa
Format:Paperback
Probably the reason why I liked this novel will be lost to many readers, but that's it, we all are different: the main character, Michael, is an American IT project manager sent in an European department to follow a project... well more or less what I was doing until last year, only that I my route was from Europe to Asia. In any case, the level of detail on Michael's job and his issues are accurate and realistic, and the tension just the right level. It sounds strange, I know, but I think Michael's "relationship" with his job is as much important as his love relationship with Stephan.

Michael is a nice guy, more or less your average gay guy; he is averagely handsome, averagely ambitious, averagely passionate... but these entire average characteristic make him a rare treasure in the relationship department. When to Michael is offered a temporary task abroad, Devon, his boyfriend, doesn't realize what he will loose if he doesn't fight for him, and the immediate fear of being alone pushes him to dump Michael. True, he will change soon idea, but it will be too late.

As soon as Michael arrives in Holland he meets Stephan, a colleague. A friendly guy who wants to welcome a stranger, Stephan soon understands what a catch Michael is, and he is quick to grab the prize. Now it's true I'm joking, Stephan is indeed a nice guy, and he is really good to Michael, especially to help him move over the delusion with Devon, his former boyfriend. It's also true that Stephan gives Michael little space to change idea, and they are soon involved in a relationship that feels important from day one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Read August 23, 2011
Format:Paperback
"He knew he really should not be looking at his friend's butt." I don't see why not, nothing like a nice backside to motivate a person.

Oh poo! Can a reviewer say that? I don't know, but this reviewer found herself fanning her face and saying it a lot while reading this book.

As a fan of Mr. Grey's work I was prepared when I started reading Dutch Treat by making sure I had a box of Kleenex in case I needed them. I have yet to read one of his books without crying! He always makes me tear up and laugh with all the emotions that pour out of the characters and this book is no exception.

When I read this book, I was so involved in the writing that I felt like a friend hearing about the wild courtship dance of Michael and Stephan.

I loved that Michael had to pull up roots and move to another country because of his job. Losing his lover because he is not willing to wait for his return put Michael on guard. He was hesitant about taking a lover in the Netherlands. Knowing that he was only going to be there a short time was a road block in the love affair I could understand but it didn't stop me from praying throughout the story that he would find a Happy Ever After at the end.

The emotional pull was strong and the story was great It was definitely worth reading, and will become a permanent addition to my library for sure. Truly a beautiful love story but not without a "homophobic weasel", plus fear, tears, heartaches, and laughter that kept me reading late into the night.

I have read other stories by this author and enjoyed them. This story is more travelog than story. I didn't care about the characters and had to make myself finish it.

2.0 out of 5 stars sweet but boring
The characters were ok but way too many words were spent on office politics. I guess it was necessary for plot development, but BORING.
