Crossroads by Garrett Leigh Blog Tour

Angelo Giordano and Dylan Hart are more in love than ever, but their reality is far from ideal. With Dylan working in London, and Angelo recovering from chronic illness in Cornwall, they rarely spend more than few nights under the same sky.

Dylan is struggling. Being apart from Angelo is killing him, and he’s at the end of his rope. Angelo can’t live in London anymore, but can Dylan give up his whole life and move to a place that often feels like the end of the world?

As the end of a tough year approaches, they reach a crossroads. Dylan returns to Cornwall for Christmas and Angelo can’t imagine watching him leave again. Can the love that surrounds them on Whisper Farm show them the way home?

This novella is not a standalone. Dream should be read prior to reading Crossroads.

3.5 stars

This is the follow up to Dylan and Angelo’s book, Dream. If Dream is the story of how this unlikely pair shrugged off common sense and took a chance on a most unlikely relationship, this is the story of the two men figuring out the compromises they need to make so they can actually live together. This second book is a little less fantasy and a little more hard work.

Dylan and Angelo were fabulous in Dream and I enjoyed catching up with them. This story is set on Joe’s farm, so we get to see all the couples in the series together for Christmas at the farm. This is a short novella and it’s pretty light on plot. Oddly enough, it’s also light on sex and it’s pretty light on romance. Dylan and Angelo spend long stretches of this story avoiding each other, not quite communicating, and talking to other characters. There’s one very sexy scene that features four of my favourite characters from the series and there’s one very romantic scene – that doesn’t feature Dylan and Angelo.

After all of the grit and angst of the first three books, this one about content couples struggling with communication issues and scheduling problems seems a little bit out of place. I’m glad this doesn’t descend into sentimental Christmas schmaltz but it is a little bit underwhelming and I feel like the series deserves a little bit more joy in its final story.

This is the fourth book in the series, and brings together all the leads from previous books to Christmas in Cornwall. I would therefore suggest that you only read this if you are up to date with the story so far.

Whilst it is really a novella about all the guys we have been rooting for so far, it does deal with the problems between Dylan and Angelo. They are currently coping with a long distant relationship but need to sort out where they are to be in the future. The busyness of Christmas (and a very romantic surprise) means that they are struggling to talk it out, but there is a lovely solution to their problem.

Definitely a book to tie up loose ends for regular readers more than a romantic story per se. It is satisfying, although in a gentle and rather effectively underwhelming way.
