Moonstruck’s still a good read with a sexy silver fox author MC

MoonstruckMoonstruck by Aleksandr Voinov & L.A. Witt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just as I really enjoyed this when it was originally published as Lone Wolf as part of the Bluewater Bay series, I still enjoyed it now it’s out on its own in the world with a new title and cover.

I will say though, that this was originally part of a series and while the names etc have been changed, there are still references to that series – which centred around the town where filming of the paranormal TV show based on the books mentioned in this narrative takes place.

But the story itself just appeals to me, it’s mostly about fanfic, how sometimes the authors of fanfic take the characters in directions the creators never imagined and sometimes those directions are not only good ones, they invigorate the original.

Whether this would ever happen in real life, I’m not sure as I believe authors are advised to stay away from fanfics of their work in case they inadvertently pick up ideas from it and leave themselves open to litigation.

Which is, in itself, a bit of a mind-bender given they’re the creators of the originals in the first place but hey, what do I know!?

Still, taken on its own, this is a steamy age gap with a silver fox author not quite romance which also looks at the pressures of fame and fan expectations in a way which feels utterly real and relatable.

Stunning romance which focuses in on disability and survival

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s Garrett Leigh. Not only is it Garrett Leigh, but it’s her with the military pen firmly in hand and the romance she gives us is stunning.

There is so much to love about this, from honest and warm-hearted Max to Jed, determined to live under his own conditions, and through to the bunch of superb secondary characters who pepper the story.

I’m not going to recap the plot, I will say though, that the attention to detail here is as great as it usually is and when Jed went through all his traumas, I felt them vicariously.

This is the revised edition with a new cover and I don’t believe there are any changes from the original.

If you like damaged men, both physically and mentally, this is your book. There is so much to love about it. I wanted to wrap Max in bubble wrap and I was so glad when Jed started taking care of him and let him look after him in return.

Is it worth risking a friendship for a chance at love?

Leaving home to go to university is an exciting phase in anyone’s life. One that’s full of new places, new friends, and new experiences. But Lewis isn’t prepared for the sudden and intense crush he develops on his out-and-proud flatmate, Max, because Lewis had always assumed he was straight.

Max starts dating another guy, and Lewis’s jealousy at seeing them together forces him to confront his growing attraction. When Max’s relationship goes awry, Lewis is the one to comfort him and one thing leads to another. After a night together, Lewis is devastated that Max wants to go back to being just friends.

Lewis tries his best to move on and their friendship survives, but the feelings he has for Max don’t go away. He faces other challenges as he deals with coming out to his parents, and needs Max’s support more than ever.

But Lewis isn’t the only one who’s conflicted. When Max finally admits he cares for Lewis too, Lewis must decide whether he dares risk his heart again on being more than just friends.

Please note that although this edition has been re-edited for publication, there is no new or additional content.

Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England. He comes from a family of writers but always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed him by. He spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.

One day, Jay decided to try and write a short story—just to see if he could—and found it rather addictive. He hasn’t stopped writing since.

Jay writes contemporary romance about men who fall in love with other men. He has five books published by Dreamspinner Press, and also self-publishes under the imprint Jaybird Press. Many of his books are now available as audiobooks.
