That not only kept me looking for the author to slip up, but when she didn't, at least gave some credence to a set of very Hollywood characters and a plot and love story that were both exciting. (Caveat: She does change the name of one racetrack from Los Alamitos to Santa Alamita, which puzzles men, unless she wanted to combine Los Alamitos with Santa Anita just to be generic. Why?)
You can read the blurb and discover all that you need to know to plunge into the lives of trainer Evan Taylor and British actor-turned-Hollywood wannabe Wesley Tremayne--and their assorted hangers-on and friends and ex-lovers. What you won't discover until you read the book is how perfectly matched these men are to each other and to their respective livelihoods and how that affects their budding relationship.
The twists and turns and eventually violent lurch in the plot are logical (and in truth, somewhat predictable), but that doesn't diminish the fact that this is a fast ride on some really special ponies.
Ms. Lynley is a lyrical, yet realistic writer. She does so well with dialogue, empathetic characters, a judicious measure of heartache and some hot sex - sometimes restrained and never too much.
Take one Brit-transplant L.A. actor in a hot series and one former-actor who's been running a successful horse training operation for a number of years, mix them up with a cast of colorful Hollywood, horse-racing world and dangerous mob types - add in a juicy coming-out-in-Hollywood story, and what's not to like? There are beautiful moments, terrifying ones, discouraging times and triumphant ones.
There is nothing revolutionary or totally unique about "Out of The Gate", but it's all woven together so seamlessly and effortlessly that there's never a moment of disbelief or disappointment. It's the kind of read I like: moving, fast-paced, interesting and page-turning.
Read it. If you enjoy it half as much as I did, you'll be really glad you did.
There's a lot going on here, with Wes, a young, popular actor in a hit tv series, goes to the track with his fellow actors and they end up buying a racehorse. Evan is the trainer who is recommend by a friend. Evan dislikes Hollywood types, but he needs to run his business.
I really liked Wes and Evan. Their relationship was sweet--in the best of ways. I liked that they both had their quibbles and doubts and problems when it came to their relationship, but cared a lot about not hurting each other. The rest of the cast were interesting, too. Interesting mix of horses and Hollywood (and a bunch of other subplots and back-stories). I like how the mystery/suspense crept in there, too, without detracting from the romance.
I'll be looking for more from this author.
