  • Raw and gritty

    Don’t touch his cat or Billy will teach you a lesson. Yep, he’s a firecracker and also homeless. He and his cat can stay with Gus, it’s been five years since the last time, it was awkward at that time, wasted and kissing. Still, it was ages ago, long forgotten right? Billy is a bit of a thug with a bad mouth and Gus is the soft soul, the sensitive one. Billy has a complicated life and an even more complicated relationship with his brother. Gus doesn’t do relationships, he picks up guys on Grindr and leaves them behind. There is a strong attraction between Gus and Billy and it’s complicated. There is so much hurt and grief it looks like an impossible task to get closer. It felt all raw and gritty. Even though I understand it’s a stand-alone I had moments I wished I knew more about their history. I really missed something to fully get involved in in the beginning. I understand Luke and Mia got their own story in #1. I had trouble liking Luke and Mia. My heart was with Billy and Gus. Absolutely an intriguing story. I would have loved some more explanation about their past. The writing was good and solid.

  • Unforgotten

    UNFORGOTTEN is the second book in the Forgiven series, and this time, the focus is on the brothers - Luke's brother, Billy, and Mia's brother, Gus. They both had a moment in the past, and neither of them has forgotten about it. So what will happen when they start sharing a house and working together? This is what I would call a high-angst book. There is not a page where there isn't some form of trouble, whether it's between Luke and Billy, Gus and Mia, Luke and Mia, or Billy and Gus! And, oh, for the love of god, will someone please explain how a conversation works to these people? As with book one, I found this to be brilliantly written, but I was just unable to connect with the characters as I wanted to. Mia still annoys me. I can feel my teeth grinding whenever she is in a scene. I think there was only one where she behaved in a more compassionate way. I feel this book was better than book one, but I still prefer other books by this author. If you are after a contemporary romance with high angst, then I can definitely recommend this book. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

  • Hurt/Comfort Romance

    A heartfelt and moving hurt/comfort story, I enjoyed Garrett Leigh's Unforgotten. This is part two of Leigh's Forgiven series. Somewhere along the way I got the impression Unforgotten could be read as a standalone. I does work as a standalone, but I'm sure I'd have enjoyed it more if I'd read Forgiven first. The first novel in the series, Forgiven, is about Luke and Mia. And while I don't read much M/F romance these days, I'm seriously tempted. There's quite a bit of information about these two characters and their relationship in Unforgotten, plus a number of great scenes involving them. The dynamic between them is intriguing, and like I say - dang, I'm tempted. This novel is about Luke's brother Billy, and Mia's brother Gus. These guys each have their issues. Gus is avoiding commitment and intimacy with his Grindr addiction, but he clearly wants to belong to someone. Memories of a teenage drunken kiss with Billy keep him from being interested in anybody else. Billy's got some huge issues surrounding his brother Luke, and he rocking the whole bad boy story. He's not doing a good job of caring for himself. A serious shoulder injury, a brush with the law, a bit of drug use - not to mention he's jobless and homeless. Clearly crying out for help, and carrying a torch for his childhood crush... Gus. I have a feeling there's a ton of info about both Gus and Billy in Forgiven, so we're missing details which would have helped me enjoy this story more. Plus the scenes in Unforgotten with Luke and Mia would be more significant if I knew them better. Of course this is my own fault and has nothing to do with Garrett Leigh's marvelous writing.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • emotional

    I love the small-town feel of this book. Well, this series would be more accurate, and the characters are interesting and likable. In the case of Billy and Gus, they're a bit broken, which just endears them to me all the more. This couple's love story is angsty and emotional, and everything I expect from Garrett Leigh. We also get to revisit Luke and Mia from the first book. And here's where I'll say that you don't technically have to read Luke and Mia's story, but you'll want to once you've met them. They have an interesting relationship with each other as well as with their siblings, and it all comes together for exactly what I look for in a Garrett Leigh romance. Gus and Billy are sweet, sexy, and they definitely tug at the heartstrings. I don't know how many books are planned for this series, but I do know I'd like to see more of this town and its characters.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Okay

    I usually go into this author's books knowing to expect wonderfully well-written and complex characters but this time...not so much. Billy and Gus didn't really draw me in, the best part of the story was the cat. All in all an okay read. *I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by NetGalley*
