Reviewing Jude by Garrett Leigh

Jude (Lucky #3) by Garrett Leigh 2*
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.

My Review: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. When I agreed to review this book I hadn't realised it was book 3 from the series but it didn't seem to affect the overall the story line at all. However I really couldn't like this book much at all. I enjoyed reading about Jude and the reptiles but Isha really, really annoyed me. I couldn't fathom why he was constantly hiding his sexuality,especially as there was more than enough mention of his friends being out of the closet. Even his inner thoughts didn't really make him any more understandable or appealing to me. I also didn't really feel the connections between the two men and by the end of the book I was just glad to leave them behind me. I am coming to realise that Garrett Leigh is a hit or miss author for me so I am going to be a little more wary about reading any others from the series Lucky but will be looking for more from the series Skins (all the books in that series so far having been 4* reads for me.)

Four Seasons. Two Men. One Love.

For struggling film student Isamu Taylor, life's refrain is about to change from boring documentary about a passionless delivery boy to a blazing and wildly erotic love story.

After spending weeks admiring handsome but older Manhattan executive Brian Gilles while delivering brioche to him in Bryant Park, the man of his lusty dreams has just expressed a desire to get to know Isamu better. A night on the town is just the beginning of a whirlwind romance that will span not only four seasons but countless years.

Amid the beauty and charm of Bryant Park, New York City, two men are about to discover that love knows no age or economic boundaries. This is a collection of four short stories starring these two amazing men, their one sublime love, and the park where it all started.

My Review To Follow
USA Today Bestselling Author V.L. Locey – Penning LGBT hockey romance that skates into sinful pleasures. 

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, Torchwood and Dr. Who, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a pair of geese, far too many chickens, and two steers.

When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in one hand and a steamy romance novel in the other.
