Cowboy Joshua Ryan is a Western Trail Rides tourist guide for guest Matt James.  Matt is hearing impaired.  However, this is not a problem for Josh, who is skilled in sign language.  The real problem is Josh made a gay porn movie and he cannot stop thinking about it.  Josh is not gay so why does he desire repeating his gay performance with Matt?  

Straight Cowboy is the first book in the Uncommon Cowboys Series.  The well written heartwarming plot illustrates Josh’s struggle with his sexuality.  The characters are believable.  Matt is openly gay, intelligent and somewhat of a loner with a sexually wild side hidden inside.  He is attracted to Josh; nevertheless Matt refuses to be a substitute for Josh’s female lovers.  By the time Matt and Josh reached their destination, along with the intimacy they shared, Matt realized he had fallen in love with Josh.   

Josh never felt like he fit in anywhere.  His time spent out on the wildness trails is Josh’s comfort zone.  He is confused by his embarrassing thoughts, regarding Matt which makes him surly.  However, the attraction another guest displays towards Matt, forces Josh to admit his desire to stay Matt’s lover.   Jan Irving has created an impressively steamy, as well as heartwarming, short story that I enjoyed greatly.
