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.
I went into Cash by Garrett Leigh expecting to love it; then I worried that the action would take me out of the story. Cash isn’t your typical Garrett Leigh book, and I’ll admit I’m not big into action, suspense, mystery or anything of that nature. My eyes will sort of start to glaze, and my mind wonders off BUT not here. I’m not going to rehash the blurb and just get down to the nitty-gritty.
-Great main characters. While both Cash and Rae were complicated and times frustrating I believed in their actions making me fall in love with the characters.
-The chemistry between both men is palpable. You know in earlier GL books I read one of my complaints is that I always wanted a little more steam (sorry
not sorry smut lover here!). I don’t know what changed, but I love the added sexy times to her stories! I’m a sucker for a casual hook up that turns into more, and that’s just what occurs here.
-Cash isn’t a laid back read, as mentioned earlier it’s action-packed and also covers illegal fox hunting- which is a fucking atrocious practice.
-The romance is raw and emotional as expected from any GL book.
-The writing is exceptional, GL is always consistent.
-There’s some hurt/comfort, but this is not the typical angst fest most GL stories contain.
All in all, this was a surprising hit for me. It was different than I expecting- in a positive way.
I’m ready for book 3.
