Kiss Me Again

by

Garrett Leigh

Tree surgeon Aidan Drummond is content with his own company. He works alone, and lives alone, and it doesn’t occur to him to want anything else until a life-changing accident lands him in hospital. Then a glimpse of the beautiful boy in the opposite bed changes everything.

Ludo Giordano is trapped on the ward with a bunch of old men. His mind plays tricks on him, keeping him awake. Then late one night, a new face brings a welcome distraction. Their unlikely friendship is addictive. And, like most things in Ludo’s life, temporary.

Back in the real world, Aidan’s monochrome existence is no longer enough. He craves the colour Ludo brought him, and when a chance meeting brings them back together, before long, they’re inseparable again.

But bliss comes with complications. Aidan is on the road to recovery, but Ludo has been unwell his entire life, and that’s not going to change. Aidan can kiss him as much as he likes, but if he can’t help Ludo when he needs him most, they don’t stand a chance.

“Kiss Me Again is a deliciously tender and prickly romance about the intimacy that comes with acceptance. Ludo and Aidan accept and love each other for exactly who they are—complications, injuries, mental health issues, moods—and I loved them for it.” — Roan Parish

Cash by Garrett Leigh

Title: Cash

Series: Lucky 02

Author: Garrett Leigh

Genre: Contemporary

Length: Novel (270 pages)

ASIN: B07MVLGFJT

Publisher: Fox Love Press (22 Jan 2019)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖 3 Hearts

Reviewer: Prime

Blurb: Cash is a car mechanic with a secret. Head down, sleeves up, he hides from the past as much as his shattered heart, until a reluctant stumble into a Tottenham bar ends in the one night stand of his dreams.

Hunt saboteur Rae can’t believe his luck when he wakes up the next morning. Cash is gorgeous, and the hottest hook up he’s ever had. He doesn’t expect to see him again, until a twist of fate lands him on Cash’s doorstep a few months later.

United by a cause that’s broken Cash before, they are drawn together. They have more in common than they ever imagined, but with Cash haunted by the past, and Rae so tangled in the present, it’s not long before love isn’t enough to keep them alive.

Purchase Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: Cash is the second book in Garett Leigh’s series Lucky. This book focuses on a different couple and although the couple of the first book (Lucky and Dominic) feature heavily throughout this book, this does work as a standalone book. Obviously, Garrett Leigh is not an entirely new author to me, but I feel that I need to do more exploring with the author’s offerings to get a true opinion on how I feel there.

I feel that my review for this book is going to be rather short and to the point, mostly because although I liked and enjoyed the story I really found it hard to connect to the characters properly. I’m not going to wait until the end of the review either to get give my conclusions. Therefore, I didn’t really fall in love with the guys, despite the fact I wanted to see a HEA. This is probably compounded (and directly influences) the fact that at times I felt that the story was a tad too long and I just wanted the story to hurry up.

The story is about Cash and Rae. The guys meet one night, have a one-night stand which leaves both of them with a mountain of emotion which seems easier to just ignore (so, yes, there is a significant helping of miscommunication in this book and that tends to frustrate me). However, Cash’s past life and Rae’s current activities bring them back together.

Rae is active in a hunt saboteur group, i.e. a group that protests and disrupts hunting parties that chase live animals, most common that in England seems to be fox hunts. I suppose they are eco-warriors, against animal cruelty. His group are in trouble and so he is sent to find some old saboteurs that left the game, in the hope of getting experienced help concerning some major hunting activities. He didn’t realise that the Ciaran that he was tracking down is Cash, who hates his real name. Cash has nothing against the sabs, after all he was one of them, but it is his confusing feelings for Rae that draw him back in. The danger and mystery culminate to events that could kill Cash.

As I said earlier, although I enjoyed the story and I will stick around for the final good, I didn’t feel a deep connection to the characters. This is good for people that like an action, contemporary romance with a couple of ordinary guys.

Jude by Garrett Leigh

Title: Jude

Series: Lucky 03

Author: Garrett Leigh

Genre: Contemporary

Length: Novel (220pgs)

ASIN: B07Q18JBBG

Publisher: Fox Love Press (24 March 2019)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖 3.5 Hearts

Reviewer: Prime

Blurb: Isha has spent the last year watching his BFF get his happily-ever-after. He’s proud of Dom, but…it hurts to see him so free while Isha’s love life is still on lockdown. Only Isha’s ex-wife knows the secret that he’s kept caged for so long—that he’s queer too, and he’s lonely.

Jude’s too chained to his work to notice what he’s missing by being terminally single, but a new face in the village soon catches his attention. City boy Isha is gorgeous, and when he starts to haunt Jude’s reptile shop as well as the hook-up app on his phone, he’s a welcome distraction from Jude’s business problems.

For a control freak like Isha, letting Jude under his skin is an existential meltdown, but Jude’s not in the market to be anyone’s queer crisis, not when he’s facing troubles of his own. Unlocking their lives could push both men apart forever, but it might be a risk worth taking if sharing is the key to their happy future.

Purchase Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: Jude is the second book in Garett Leigh’s series Lucky. This book focuses on a different couple from the previous books and works as a standalone book, although both couples (Lucky and Dominic, Cash and Rae) feature heavily throughout this book. Obviously, Garrett Leigh is not an entirely new author to me, but I feel that I need to do more exploring with the author’s offerings to get a true opinion on how I feel there.

Even after the three books in this series I am not completely sold on the writing style, feeling that there is a lot of filler words and faffing about. Then again, I just might not have any patience, particularly when I can see the direction in which the story will go. However, in saying that Jude is by far my favourite book in the series, where I felt it was much easier to relate to the MCs, even if I wanted to strangle one of them multiple times throughout the book.

The couple in this book is Jude and Isha, both of which have close ties to the second book. Jude owns and runs a pet shop, devoting all his energy to the business, so much so he doesn’t see that there could be more in his life. They hook up on Grindr. They also meet when Jude needs to organise a party for his son, mostly because his ex-wife can’t handle snakes and the kid wants a pet party (seriously, never knew that could be a thing for a kids party). Isha isn’t closeted but he has issues in showing the world his sexuality, even if his ex-wife embraces this side of Isha more than Isha does. And this is where the miscommunication comes in.

Isha has a lot of shit to sort through and though I really wanted to strangle him, this is what made him an excellent character. He had a lot of growth throughout the story before he could be worth of Jude. Isha’s other problem is that he uses work as a crutch to keep him occupied so that he doesn’t have to face up to reality. He is really an intriguing character and is the reason why this rates as my favourite book in the series.

This is a book mostly about self-discovery. This will appeal to reader that are into reading characters that have to come to terms with themselves before they can let love in. It was nice seeing the four guys from the previous books again as they tried to help their friends.

Only Love

by

Garrett Leigh

The diagnosis of a chronic stomach condition leaves thirty-two-year-old Sergeant Jed Cooper with little choice but to call time on his Army career. Then on the dusty streets of Kirkuk, an ambush gone tragically wrong decimates his team, and he returns to the US with a shattered leg and the memory of his best friend dying in his arms.

Life in his sleepy hometown proves intolerable until he finds solace in a lakeside cabin with vivacious young carpenter, Max O’Dair. In the shadow of the epilepsy that periodically plagues Max, he and Jed form an unspoken bond. After a late night episode, Jed realizes how much Max means to him, and life has taught him not to waste time.

But the lines between contentment and complacency are blurred. Things left hidden resurface to tear through their world, and before they can repair the damage, death comes to call again. Faces, past and present, rally around them to weather the storm, but before long, they are left with only love.

Don’t look back. Don’t you ever look back…

Shy tattoo artist Ash has a troubled past. Years of neglect, drug abuse, and life on the streets have taken their toll, and sometimes it seems the deep, unspoken bond with his lover is the only balm for wounds he doesn’t quite understand.

Chicago paramedic Pete is warmth, love, and strength—things Ash never knew he could have, and never even knew he wanted until Pete showed him. But fate is a cruel, cruel mistress, and when nightmares collide with the present, their tentatively built world comes crashing down.

Traumatic events in Pete’s work life distance him from home, and he doesn’t realize until it’s too late that Ash has slipped away. Betrayal, secrets, and lies unfold, and when a devastating coincidence takes hold, Pete must fight with all he has to save the love of his life.

Paramedic Pete Adams lived through the year from hell watching his lover, Ash, fall apart, and the precarious balance between work and home is becoming more strained. His heart is always home, with Ash, but the dark side to his job is weighing him down.

Tattoo artist Ash Fagin is recovering from a nervous breakdown triggered by revelations about his traumatic childhood. His battle with mental illness is far from over, but with Pete by his side, he’s feeling good again, so good he doesn’t notice something missing until it walks right into his living room.

Ash believes he’s had enough coincidence in his life, but when a voice from the past comes looking for him, it takes the devastating injuries of the one he loves most to convince him to let a ghost become the family he never knew he wanted.

I love him…but he’s forgotten why.

A lot can happen in six years, and Ash and Pete have seen their world flipped upside down more times than most. Being parents to Pete’s young nephew wasn’t in their plan, but life happens to them and they roll with the punches. Or at least they did, until new heartache rocks their hard-won happily-ever-after.

Ash loves Pete as much as ever—more, in fact—but Pete battles alone with a burden that weighs heavily on his heart. Ash is no stranger to dark clouds, but the secret Pete keeps from him is a storm that could break them.

Despite the fierce love that once buoyed them, they’re both drowning until a new friend throws them a lifeline. His wisdom offers insight—for better or worse, real love is rarely a smooth journey. For Ash and Pete to come full circle once more, they’ll have to hit the road and chase it.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Pete is a paramedic working the mean streets of Chicago. Long and unpredictable shifts coupled with dangerous calls that sometimes leave him battered and bruised leave his boyfriend anxious and jittery. He met the super shy street artist, Ash, through their mutual friend Ellie. What started out as a roommate arrangement quickly grows into more based on an intense mutual attraction. But Ash’s past is shrouded in darkness and mystery that threatens their already volatile relationship.

What is perceived as secrets and lies slowly unravels as a darkness in Ash’s past that he’s tried hard to bury. This secret has caused something within Ash to break, mentally, sort of like self-preservation. He can’t really remember the memory, only the voice, and the same voice that sends him spiraling out of control for no apparent reason. Can Pete piece together the seemingly random clues and help Ash not only face his past, but also come to terms with it, before he loses him inside his warped mind forever.

I had high hopes for this book and anxiously awaited its release for weeks. The story started out on a high note, and I enjoyed getting to know Pete and Ash at the start. I soon became frustrated with Pete constantly assuming things, but never really talking to Ash, they’d just fall into bed every five minutes as if that were the answer to everything. Don’t get me wrong, these two had some serious steam, but at times, it weighed down the story. I thought I could see where the author was going with Ash’s story early on, and in the end, I was partially right. It was so aggravating and long-winded that by the time what should have been an “oh my god” moment came along; it was more like “it’s about damn time you clued me in.”

This is a rare novel that should have been a novella. I could have done with the condensed version or the footnotes. Sorry guys, I tried really hard to like this one, but it just fell flat in the end for me.

Reviewer: Tams

Review:  Ash is on the mend after suffering a breakdown last year. His relationship with Pete is stronger, but they still have a long road ahead. Ash may have made it through the darkness to the other side, but it left him scared, both mentally and physically. Pete as well has suffered mental and physical setbacks causing exhaustion and frustration. But the one constant in their unpredictable, crazy lives is each other.

When their best friend and closest ally brings his girlfriend home to meet the boys, Ash will discover a link to his past he’s not sure he wants to know. And Pete is worn out with being a Paramedic. He’s exhausted and his body carries the scars of some bad calls. Just when you think that what little progress they’ve made will be shot to hell, these two will surprise you as will their unwavering love for each other.

The writing in this installment grew leaps and bounds compared to the first book in this series, for me at least. I felt more of a connection with the characters, and all the issues they faced this time they faced head on. Thinking back, perhaps that was the intention of the author in the first book, to portray some type of disconnect there so that she could morph and change the characters along the way. Pete’s character has grown up a lot due to the challenges he’s faced throughout this series. And Ash… Oh my, I think I’m in love with a crazy, neurotic, gay tattoo artist!

There was never any question that these two had some definite chemistry, and Leigh conveyed that again in Rare. There is still a lot of growth these characters have to do and I’m excited to see where they go as the series continues.

Blurb: Dominic Ramos is a Premiership football player with a secret. There are no trophies for being gay in his game. Locked into his rep as the meanest defender on the pitch, keeping his secret is soul-crushing, but love has no place in his sport, even if his soft heart craves it.

Lucky Coleman is on his knees when he meets a man with more money than sense. It’s a Grindr hook-up for cash, not a love match, but dreaming of his desperate, kind eyes earns a place amongst his numerous bad habits.

Meeting once was risky, twice pushes Dom’s courage to the limit. Losing Lucky seems inevitable, but his tight grip on his image counts for nothing when Lucky starts to fall.

Catching him could cost Dom everything, but if he can set his heart free, getting Lucky long term might be a risk worth taking.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I’m going to be up front about this book – while I enjoyed the book and the concept I didn’t find myself wowed by it either. For me, Garrett Leigh is a new author. I enjoyed her writing style and thoroughly enjoyed reading the book from start to finish. However, once more I am brought back to the fact that I wasn’t completely blown away by the story, which has ultimately left me a little disappointed.

The main characters of this story are Dominic Ramos and Lucky Coleman. They are both very interesting characters and vastly different personalities, heavily influenced by the very different paths their lives are on before their meeting.

When they meet, it was never meant to be more than a Grindr hookup, which Lucky desperate to make money. He often sleeps rough on the street or in shelters, or if he’s desperate he will crash at his best friend’s place. Despite what he is forced to do, Lucky is a strong man and has a very defined moral compass. In this way he was so easy to relate to and it was so easy to feel for him more so than for Dominic.

Dominic is thoroughly buried in the closet. Dom is a professional football (soccer) player in England’s Premier League and he knows that he can’t have his career as the league’s most feared defender and come out of the closet. And so he is stuck to a life of stolen blowjobs and hook ups.

Now I think this is where my not being totally blown away by this book stems from: I will grant you, there is definitely some drama and some low-level angst. However, for me a book like this could have the potential to be completely over the top, which could be both good or bad. The good thing about the low-level angst and drama is that it makes both Dom and Lucky so very relatable – they are ordinary blokes. The bad thing is that this is a long book without any great drama to overcome. Which brings me back to the good point that these are just two guys getting to know each other and somehow along the way falling in love.

And that, my friends, is the problem that I am stuck with in my head as I try to give this a proper and sincere review.

Anyone who loves a sweet romance that is just a tad Pretty Woman will love to read Lucky. I’m still undecided if I will read the next story in the series – there is an excerpt for the character Cash who we had met all too briefly.

Lucky Coleman is on his knees when he meets a man with more money than sense. It’s a Grindr hook-up for cash, not a love match, but dreaming of his desperate, kind eyes earns a place amongst his numerous bad habits.

Meeting once was risky, twice pushes Dom’s courage to the limit. Losing Lucky seems inevitable, but his tight grip on his image counts for nothing when Lucky starts to fall.

Catching him could cost Dom everything, but if he can set his heart free, getting Lucky long term might be a risk worth taking.

(Skins 03)

Garrett Leigh

Flight paramedic Rhys Foster is hooked on adrenaline. By day it’s blood and guts, by night it’s the thrill of the club. With a different face in his bed most nights, he doesn’t have time to be lonely…right?

Entertainer Jevon Campbell is a play therapist like no other—dancer, magician, acrobat, he brings it all to his global mission to help children in need laugh again. He’s on a rare home visit when he encounters enigmatic Rhys in a London bar.

Their connection is instant, but Rhys fast realises Jevon’s easy confidence doesn’t stretch as far as the bedroom. He has no idea how mesmerising he is—how beautiful—and Rhys resolves to show him.

They grow closer, but time isn’t on their side. Rhys seems unable to articulate how he feels, and with Jevon’s imminent departure from the UK hanging over them, their separate commitments could tear them apart forever.

As the days slip by, Rhys must learn to believe he’s worth the happiness Jevon is offering.

Soul to Keep

(Rented Heart 02)
by

Garrett Leigh

Recovering addict Jamie Yorke has returned to England from California. With no home or family to speak of, he sticks a pin in a map and finds a small town in the Derbyshire Peak District. Matlock Bath is a quiet place—he just needs to get there, keep his head down, and stay clean. Simple, right? Until a chance meeting on the flight home alters the course of his so-called life forever.

Ex-Army medic Marc Ramsey is recovering from life-changing combat injuries while pulling nights as a trauma specialist at the local hospital. Keeping busy is a habit he can’t quit, but when Jamie—so wild and beautiful—bursts into his life, working himself into the ground isn’t as compelling as it used to be.

Marc falls hard, but chaos lurks behind Jamie’s fragile facade. He’s winning his battle against addiction, but another old foe is slowly consuming him. Both men have weathered many storms, but the path to the peace they deserve might prove the roughest ride yet.

Junkyard Heart by Garrett Leigh

Title: Junkyard Heart

Series: Porthkennack 07

Author: Garrett Leigh

Genre: Contemporary 

Length: Novel (195pgs)

ISBN: 978-1-62649-549-4

Publisher: Riptide Publishing (4th December 2017)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Reviewer: Aerin

Blurb: Tired of the London rat race and the heartbreak that comes with it, photographer Jas Manning returns to Porthkennack, the Cornish seaside town where he spent every childhood summer on his father’s farm. Resigned to year-round rain, wind, and homemade jam, he’s sorely unprepared for the impact that artsy carpenter Kim Penrose has on his heart.

Kim’s free-loving reputation precedes him, and he’s as generous with his inked-up body as he is with his time. The sex is hot, the easy friendship even better, and Jas’s time with him building his family’s new farmhouse canteen is everything Jas was missing in his empty city life.

But Kim’s carefree existence isn’t as simple as it appears. He’s worked hard to vanquish his demons and build his dreams, but the devil on his shoulder is ruthless, and when it comes to call, their happy bubble bursts like it was never there at all. The canteen opening looms, but Kim is gone in more ways than one, and it’s down to Jas to shore up Kim’s soul and convince him that he deserves his place in Jas’s heart.

Review: I’ve admitted long ago that Garrett Leigh is like crack to me, but unlike some addicts, I don’t have any desire to get clean. I love Leigh’s brand of angst, love how it rips my heart and makes me bleed, love feeling the angst like a physical blow while I fear it at the same time. Junkyard Heart is definitely Leigh’s creation and I feel like I could tell who wrote it even if I had to guess.

We know Kim from the previous Porthkennack book written by Garrett Leigh. Kim is a bisexual man whose open relationship with his long-time girlfriend made me skeptical about reading his book. Kim is battling his own demons in the form of alcohol addiction and a sometimes fragile mental health. His need for Jas runs bone-deep; Jas a that one person that Kim needs to have in his life in whatever way possible.

Jas has been a player all his life, a serial cheater who has always dated both men and women at the same time. That is until karma caught up to him, and the person Jas fell in love with and has dedicated 5 years of his life to was revealed as a married man. Jai’s broken heart drove him all the way to Porthkennack, where his father, step-mother and brothers all live. Jas believes he’s no relationship material and he’s done falling in love with men or women both, but his chemistry with Kim turns his world upside down. Staying away from Kim is simply not possible, no matter how complicated their relationship is.

I loved Jas and Kim together, their relationship and chemistry is intense and passionate, pretty much everything I could hope for. What didn’t work for me, and the real reason this book only gets 4 hearts from me, is Lena and the weird part she plays in Jas and Kim’s relationship. I get who she is to Kim, I understand their friendship, but…. why the fuck would Jas desire to see Lena and Kim fuck? I didn’t feel like Jas and Kim’s relationship had any room for a third, even if that third person is only hypothetical. I disliked that Lena watched Jas and Kim fuck, and it creeped me out that she kissed Jas’s head in the middle of it. I was half expecting her to guide his dick as well! *Lena did not have any actual sex with either of them and there was no cheating!*

Aside from the awkwardness that is Lena, I love everything about this book! Great read!

Finding Home

by

Garrett Leigh

How do you find a home when your heart is in ashes?

With their mum dead and their father on remand for her murder, Leo Hendry and his little sister, Lila, have nothing in the world but each other. Broken and burned, they’re thrust into the foster care system. Leo shields Lila from the fake families and forced affection, until the Poulton household is the only place left to go.

Charlie de Sousa is used to other kids passing through the Poulton home, but there’s never been anyone like his new foster brother. Leo’s physical injuries are plain to see, but it’s the pain in his eyes that draws Charlie in the most.

Day by day, they grow closer, but the darkness inside Leo consumes him. He rejects his foster parents, and when Charlie gets into trouble, Leo’s attempt to protect him turns violent. When Leo loses control, no one can reach him—except Charlie. He desperately needs a family—a home—and only Charlie can show him the way.

I love him…but he’s forgotten why.

A lot can happen in six years, and Ash and Pete have seen their world flipped upside down more times than most. Being parents to Pete’s young nephew wasn’t in their plan, but life happens to them and they roll with the punches. Or at least they did, until new heartache rocks their hard-won happily-ever-after.

Ash loves Pete as much as ever—more, in fact—but Pete battles alone with a burden that weighs heavily on his heart. Ash is no stranger to dark clouds, but the secret Pete keeps from him is a storm that could break them.

Despite the fierce love that once buoyed them, they’re both drowning until a new friend throws them a lifeline. His wisdom offers insight—for better or worse, real love is rarely a smooth journey. For Ash and Pete to come full circle once more, they’ll have to hit the road and chase it.
