This is the first book by Garrett Leigh that I have read and I am sure it won’t be the last. The characters of Jack and Will are very well developed and relatable. I fell in love with these to guys. I did have a time or two that I wanted to knock some sense into them but most of all just give them the hugs and love they needed and deserved. I can’t wait for the next book to see what happens.

Will Barter’s been in love with his best mate Jack for as long as he can remember. They’ve shared everything: love, life, laughs, even Will’s first kiss. But Jack’s straight, and Will’s long-buried infatuation means nothing until their last summer together draws to a close.

Then one night, everything changes, but with Will bound for university in Leeds, and Jack for his dream DJ job in Ibiza, there’s no time to explore their blurred lines. Before long all that’s left are secrets, lies, and misunderstandings.

In the months that follow, anger and hurt overshadow fifteen years of friendship, and Will must dig deep to remember Jack is his mate… his best mate, and nothing matters more than that, right?

This book brings us Finn’s story who is in a band with Jack. I really loved this book. Finn and Danny’s story is a lot different than Will and Jack from book 1. This book deals with what some people today still consider a taboo subject, Mental Illness. It is something that should be an open topic. Thank you for that reminder Mr. Leigh. For me this book was a little bit of an emotional roller coaster since the mental illness that Finn confronts daily, my oldest son does the same. I look forward to reading more from this author. I recommend this read.

As a diehard music fan, a dirty, smoky gig is Vice Squad Detective Danny Jones’s idea of heaven. While watching one of the most popular bands in Northern England, the sight of gorgeous rock star Finn McGovern changes his life forever.

Beneath the tattoos and leather jacket, Finn is kind and sweet, but when he confesses a dark secret to Danny, it tests their fledgling bond. Danny digs deep to accept Finn, but before long, a terrifying trail of death threatens to tear them apart before they’ve even got started.

A monster is killing prostitutes on Danny’s patch, and when a dead girl turns up too close to home, Danny discovers a heartbreaking link between the girl and his bright new life with Finn, a life he’ll do anything to protect.
