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.
My Rating - 5 Stars!
Believe, the 3rd book in the Skins series by Garrett Leigh, is a wonderful addition to the series!
It's definitely a tough story, with a lot of sadness and despair, that ultimately leads to a beautiful ending.
Rhys, a paramedic, is tired of the sex clubs and is feeling confused and lonely. Jevon works as a therapy clown, helping kids in refugee camps. When they meet, Jevon is just looking for a hook-up while Rhys prefers to find a serious partner. Thus, when they hook up, it is just for sex, as Rhys helps Jevon to explore his sexuality. But fate intervenes and bring them together again.
Reading about Jevon's work is horrifying given the current refugee situations that are in the news every day. Hearing of kids like this really brings life and importance to Jevon's work. This is the telling of an ongoing real-life tragedy.
Garrett Leigh is fantastic, yet again, with a strong and powerful writing style, extremely well done character development and some raw and realistic issues.
I highly recommend Believe, as it is amazing down to the last page.
