Roads Series by Garrett Leigh Blog Tour


Slide

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.

I wasn't sure how to review this book when I finished so I thought I'd give it a few days. Days later. I'm still not sure how I feel. I didn't like how wordy the book was and how there wasn't a lot if dialogue at times. I found myself getting bored and skimming. Then there were times I didn't want to put the book down. I loved Pete and Ash. I love how they started slow and how much Pete cared for Ash even when Ash was so silent. At times I felt disconnected, but I still want to read the next book to see what happens. I know this review probably doesn't help or is confusing, but that's how I feel.




Rare

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.

I didn't love or hate Slide, but I was hesitant starting Rare. Pete and Ash had been through so much and JC they went through hell again. How much can one couple really take? Once again, there was a lot of inner monologue – which drives me nuts. I need dialogue between the characters. I did enjoy this book and I can't wait to read Circle. I hope to hell these men get their happily ever after.




Circle

I love him... but he’s forgotten why.

A lot can happen in six years, and Ash and Pete have seen their world flipped upside down more times than most. Being parents to Pete's young nephew wasn't in their plan, but life happens to them and they roll with the punches. Or at least they did, until new heartache rocks their hard-won happily-ever-after.

Ash loves Pete as much as ever—more, in fact—but Pete battles alone with a burden that weighs heavily on his heart. Ash is no stranger to dark clouds, but the secret Pete keeps from him is a storm that could break them.

Despite the fierce love that once buoyed them, they're both drowning until a new friend throws them a lifeline. His wisdom offers insight—for better or worse, real love is rarely a smooth journey. For Ash and Pete to come full circle once more, they’ll have to hit the road and chase it.

This book was my favorite of the series. Not only because I liked how things ended, but because I finally felt connected to all the characters because there was dialogue! Ash and Pete have been through hell and back multiple times. In Circle, we find out a secret Pete kept that broke my heart. We see secondary characters that help Pete and Ash and then become family. This book was great, and it tied everything up and together. Was well worth the ups and downs in the series.
