REVIEW TOUR - Lucky by Garrett Leigh





Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Length: 70,000 words approx.

Cover Design: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design



Blurb

Dominic Ramos is a Premiership football player with a secret. There are no trophies for being gay in his game. Locked into his rep as the meanest defender on the pitch, keeping his secret is soul-crushing, but love has no place in his sport, even if his soft heart craves it.


Lucky Coleman is on his knees when he meets a man with more money than sense. It’s a Grindr hook-up for cash, not a love match, but dreaming of his desperate, kind eyes earns a place amongst his numerous bad habits.


Meeting once was risky, twice pushes Dom’s courage to the limit. Losing Lucky seems inevitable, but his tight grip on his image counts for nothing when Lucky starts to fall.


Catching him could cost Dom everything, but if he can set his heart free, getting Lucky long term might be a risk worth taking.









REVIEW
My Rating - 5 Stars!


First I must say thank you to Garrett Leigh for having created such an amazing book as Lucky.

Dom's a pro-football (soccer) player, who is living a lie, the worst kind of lie. He's a gay man pretending to be straight and it's killing him slowly. Then one night he meets Lucky during a Grinder hook-up and there's just something about the man that consumes Dom.

Lucky is a homeless student, who is just trying to survive his life on the streets. He spends some nights with his fellow pansexual friend, but also spends a lot of nights on the streets. The one thing that helps him sleep is finding solace in the drugs he takes. He is a survivor, but he's struggling and drowning in his struggles.

Dom and Lucky have an amazing, gut-wrenching, complicated relationship. One that proves that there's strength in love. Their story is raw, real, thought-provoking and powerful! It is written with heart, depth and soul.

I love these men, absolutely love them. Their bond is as powerful as can be, and they way that they each need each other and always find one another is riveting and accomplished. Their own struggles to find and accept love is breathtaking. And the complications they face are remarkably written. 

With Lucky, Garrett Leigh has written an exquisite and memorable romance. I know I will be adding this to my re-read often list.
