READ MY REVIEW

Garrett Leigh Cover

Blurb

A fake relationship with a stranger. An office romance with doughnuts and white knights. An addictive arrangement—friends with benefits—fast turns to love.

Jonah Gray is rich, successful, and the most eligible bachelor in the city, according to his mother, at least. But the truth is, despite her efforts to pair him off, he’s fine on his own. All he needs is a date to the Christmas ball.

Sacha Ivanov is a lone wolf, content in the cycle of long days, late nights, and anonymous hook ups, but when a chance encounter in a broken-down lift brings a gorgeous copper-haired CEO into his life, everything begins to change.

As Christmas fast approaches, a favour for a stranger blooms into something more. He doesn’t do second dates or relationships. But for kind-hearted Jonah, his angel in the city, he might just change his mind.

Angels in the City is a Christmas themed MM friends-to-lovers, forced proximity, office romance. Expect fraught days, steamy nights, and true love built around festive snacks and Christmas trees.

Garrett gives me another couple to fall head over heels for

Garrett Leigh CoverAngels in the City by Garrett Leigh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If Marc (Soul to Keep) hadn’t already stolen my heart completely, then Sacha and Jonah would be fighting it out with Gavin & Yani (Hometown Christmas) to claim it.

This is possibly the least angsty of anything I’ve ever read from Garrett, but that doesn’t mean it’s missing any of the signature pieces that make it one of her books.

Two driven men, meeting perhaps by accident, perhaps by fate’s intervention, but nevertheless, finding an instant connection.

It starts as a fake boyfriend scheme to sooth Jonah’s mother, but it’s pretty clear from the off that it could be so much more.

Sacha is an enigma, he’s brusk, sparse with conversation, free with his disdain for the rest of the workforce he’s been landed with and very much interested in taking Jonah to bed.

Jonah is a ray of sunshine, he’s kind to his staff, bemused by his mother’s determination to get him paired off with anyone, and instantly drawn to the dark and brooding Russian.

They dance around each other in their shared office space, they fall into bed frequently, but they never talk feelings.

There was just something about this book which pulled me deep into it, perhaps the intimacy of their interactions, which take place in bed a lot.

Or possibly just the way it was clear to me that Sacha needed Jonah, though he did his best to ignore that he was wanting more then just sex.

There isn’t really one defining moment which moves this into something more, it’s a slide into a dawning of acknowledgement that things have changed.

But, as is ever the way, it’s not smooth sailing, there are hurts caused, and motives questioned before the break point is reached.

For a relatively short book, Garrett still manages to pack a whole fully fleshed out world with a rounded set of secondary characters into the narrative.

It doesn’t appear to be connected to her wider universe, but it also felt like it easily could be.

I kept expecting them to pop into one of Cass and Tom’s places for food or to run into one of the ex-military guys on the street 😁

I’d love more!

Blurb

Christmas is a time for giving, not lusting after your brother’s best mate.

Finn’s never had the Christmas of his dreams, and this year isn’t shaping up to be much better. Then he rents his spare room out to Jasper, and life begins to look up.

Laid back Jasper is nothing like Finn expects. He’s hot, sweet, and easy to talk to. Finn could easily fall for him. But, he’s his brother’s best friend. He’s off limits, and Finn would never break that sacred rule…right?

Jasper’s carried a torch for his best mate’s brother for years. Living with him sparks an old flame to light, and the more time they spend together, the brighter it burns. Finn is gorgeous and kind. He’s everything Jasper has ever wanted.

But he’s also scarred by old wounds, and reluctant to let his guard down again. Friendship blooms, and for a short while, it’s enough. But the fire between them is undeniable. Finn can fight it as much as he likes.

He won’t win.

A Christmas Break is a festive MM romance. Expect: a swoony best friend’s brother, old friendships that fast turn to love, sweet roommate romance, and lots of naughty rescue cats.
