Don’t look back. Don’t you ever look back…

Shy tattoo artist Ash has a troubled past. Years of neglect, drug abuse, and life on the streets have taken their toll, and sometimes it seems the deep, unspoken bond with his lover is the only balm for wounds he doesn’t quite understand.

Chicago paramedic Pete is warmth, love, and strength—things Ash never knew he could have, and never even knew he wanted until Pete showed him. But fate is a cruel, cruel mistress, and when nightmares collide with the present, their tentatively built world comes crashing down.

Traumatic events in Pete’s work life distance him from home, and he doesn’t realize until it’s too late that Ash has slipped away. Betrayal, secrets, and lies unfold, and when a devastating coincidence takes hold, Pete must fight with all he has to save the love of his life.


My Rating - 5 Stars!

Slide, by Garrett Leigh is a gritty, tough read.

We get to know Ash and Pete and the way their relationship starts. They are sweet together, but there are some really tough parts to read. And then we learn of some even more traumatic events from Ash's past and I had to stop to remind myself that this is fiction. 

The story is detailed, gutsy and jarring. Ash is broken, influenced by awful events in his past. He has finally found peace and strength in Pete, but things still aren't easy for him.

One of my favorite parts is early on, with the way that Pete comforts Ash in his sleep. This is so tender, sweet, and beautiful.

Slide is an emotional journey that will have you feeling every emotion along with them. Be prepared for tough upbringings, tragic events, physical and emotional scars, and some healing. Garrett Leigh has gifted us with a wonderful story of surviving abuse and learning to love yourself.



Paramedic Pete Adams lived through the year from hell watching his lover, Ash, fall apart, and the precarious balance between work and home is becoming more strained. His heart is always home, with Ash, but the dark side to his job is weighing him down.

Tattoo artist Ash Fagin is recovering from a nervous breakdown triggered by revelations about his traumatic childhood. His battle with mental illness is far from over, but with Pete by his side, he's feeling good again, so good he doesn’t notice something missing until it walks right into his living room.

Ash believes he’s had enough coincidence in his life, but when a voice from the past comes looking for him, it takes the devastating injuries of the one he loves most to convince him to let a ghost become the family he never knew he wanted.


My Rating - 5 Stars!

Garrett Leigh's Rare is a heartwarming, yet complicated follow up to Slide. 

In Rare, Ash and Pete are an established couple who have already dealt with a lot of their issues. Now we continue to follow their lives, as they face some more issues and dangers. We follow these deeply emotional characters as Ash meets his sister, and Pete is injured on the job. 

The story line is creative, poignant, and thoughtful. Once again we are treated to two wonderful characters who are extremely well developed and who are perfect for one another. Their story is raw and intense, leaving me fully engrossed in their powerful tale. But throughout, they are completely devoted to one another and their intense love.

And, as always, they are quite hot and steamy together!

Rare is more than I ever expected, and I am thrilled to have found this book/series. Garrett Leigh excels at creating these characters and their amazing lives. She has a fantastic way with words and uses them to create magic.
