Reviewing Believe by Garrett Liegh

Believe (Skins #3) by Garrett Leigh 3*
BLURB: 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.

My Review: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I have mixed feelings about this book. on one hand I loved the characters and I enjoyed the small reminders of previous stories in this series, but on the other hand I couldn't really get behind the relationship the two men had. Yes it was hot and sexy. Yes they were well suited to each other. However the whole thing seemed to be too much happening in very short periods of time, then long absences with absolutely no connection that somehow ended up building to a HEA? Sorry not happening for me. That said it was still an excellent story that entertained me to the end so it wasn't all bad. Overall I think the threee skins books are great for a heartwarming read and I wait to see if there will ever be a book four - I'll probably read it if there is.
