Publisher's Summary

Martin Long has plans and dreams, but they are derailed when his parents move and must sell their house. In need of a place to stay, fast, he answers an ad for a roommate, and even though the house needs work, the owner seems nice so Martin agrees to move in.
Gary Hunter is barely making ends meet, with mysteriously disappearing tips at work and tuition to pay. Disowned by his family and left with a house in need of repair, Gary desperately needs the extra set of hands along with the money.
When Gary confesses that his family disowned him for being gay, Martin makes his own confession that opens a world of possibilities. But Gary has paid a heavy price for being who he is, and Martin's unwillingness to open up to his family puts strain on the fledgling relationship.

A sweet Romantic Read

Would you consider the audio edition of Trapped in Oz to be better than the print version?

Haven't read it but I recommend this! sit back and Rusty Topsfield read it to you.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Oh gosh! Hard choice. I will go with Gary since he has been through so much and my heart went out knowing he was sacrificing meals to go to school.


What does Rusty Topsfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He adds depth and personality that I don't think a reader can do their self.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The first time Martin took Gary out to eat and it wasn 't even a date. Martin realizes that Gary sacrificed some food to buy paint and that he isn't eating much. He orders extra fries and cant eat them so he shares with Gary and orders dessert for him as well. so sweet but heart-wrenching at the same time.


Any additional comments?

Stuck in Oz is a sweet story. It is book three Tales from Kansas series but each stand on their own. We do see Roger and Jerry for a few minutes in this one which is a sweet treat too.
Martin's mom and dad are moving to Texas but insist Martin stay in Oz where he has a good job and may go to college. Gary's roommate is moving out which is both a blessing and curse since he does need the money to help with utilities and taxes and of course food. His tips are running dry and he thinks he is being stolen from but he isn't the type to raise a stink.

I love Martin and Gary. They are both so sweet and this story is a perfect short read that you can listen to in an afternoon, making those cores less boring.

If you like new adult, college students, sweet, fast-paced stories and a feelgood story with a little sensual man-sex you will love this.
