I wasn't entirely sure what to expect here.Whenever I see Garrett Leigh has a new book I just go into grabby hands mode.One of the things I love about her books is how British she always keeps things and that's certainly the case here.Tackling such an emotive subject and making it so real.The 'sport' of Fox Hunting has been a topic of great debate over the years in England.Opinions differ,some see the unnecessary cruelty while some regarded it as a form of pest control.As an animal lover

There are a**holes out there that make me simply speechless. How someone in his right mind could hurt - much less kill -something cute like this...

... and call it sports FFS! is beyond me!

Call me naive, but even if I know that fox hunting had a long tradition in the UK, I was not aware that it's still illegally practiced after being banned years ago and hard fought by hardcore activists, so the topic itself was very interesting and an eye-opener for me. Yes, sometimes it

I went into this with low expectations because the blurb didn’t really call to me. But it’s impossible for me to resist a Garrett Leigh book even when the subject matter doesn’t appeal to me a lot. Plus, I absolutely LOVED Lucky, the first book in the series. Well, there's a reason this author is in my top favorites. In the end I end up not only rooting for the couple, but I was also very invested in everything that was going down all around them.

3.5 Stars!

I feel like it took me a really long time to read this one, and it wasn't that long. I thought the story-line was interesting; I had never heard of sabbing. But it didn't really hold my interest, if that makes any sense.

Strangely, I don't remember Cash from book 1. But I feel like I connected more with his character than Rae's. Both were likable enough. I don't know, it just didn't grab me.

Overall, a good book but not my favorite Garrett Leigh.

I went into Cash by Garrett Leigh expecting to love it; then I worried that the action would take me out of the story. Cash isn't your typical Garrett Leigh book, and I'll admit I'm not big into action, suspense, mystery or anything of that nature. My eyes will sort of start to glaze, and my mind wonders off BUT not here. I'm not going to rehash the blurb and just get down to the nitty-gritty.

Some highlights:

From 'The Beautiful Game' in Lucky to Blood Sports in Cash, Garrett Leigh's new release takes readers through a tumultuous narrative which may be confusing to those not aware of all the ins and outs of Fox Hunting and the saboteurs that come along hand in hand.

This isn't typical romance genre fare, there's a deeper understanding to this story of how far under a saboteur can get involved in trying to disrupt a hunt and the unusual lengths some hunts go to try and get round the present ban on hunt
Second book in the Lucky series written by the talented Garrett Leigh, this can be read as a standalone, but it’s really nice to reconnect with Dom and Lucky, the MCs from the previous book making appearances as friends of Cash.

Cash is a secretive and brooding mechanic and owner of an old house in London he’s revamping. One night, he’s surprised to be intrigued by Rae, a guy he meets in a pub. However, he put that spark aside and doesn’t even try to contact him again. So, he’s very surprised to

BR with Simone!

It takes an extremely talented writer to take two flat characters and a charged topic prone to having readers turn away in disgust and transform it into something readable. Though the romance didn't work for me I do appreciate the edification on fox hunting.

Which, to be clear, isn't actually a sport. It's barbarism in the guise of sport. Hunting is something that takes skill and usually hunters enjoy being challenged. Fox hunting is nothing more than a bunch of toff brutes getting

Welp, this starts out with a bang...literally. Cash and Rae meet in a pub, have a night full hot sex, and move on the next morning as if the hook-up(s) never happened. This works until Rae ends up back on Cash’s door step looking for someone that came from the life Rae leads.

Cash is a mechanic, living a simple life, and trying desperately to remain unattached to the sab life that Rae lives and breathes. Rae is obsessed with the fox hunting cause and his days are marked by hunts, sabota

'Cash' is the 13th story by this author that I've read and while it was a good read and I liked it for me it just wasn't quite what I was anticipating. I was really looking forward to this one.

Every time I begin a new story by Garrett Leigh my fingers tremble and my heart beat picks up. I know if I pay attention, I will learn something new. It’s never just a story with her. There’s always something more; sometimes it’s painful and sometimes it’s pain-free. Okay, who am I kidding? It’s never pain-free. But if I had to check off one of those lists in the doctor’s office rating ‘what’s your pain level?’ Cash would rate much lower than most other GL specials. It is still intense and thoug ...more

Too angsty with too little payoff.....

This was a drama fest everywhere I looked. In fact, the only truly happy thing in this book was Dom and Lucky’s relationship from the first book in the series.

Cash and Rae hookup. Yes, it’s hot, but it’s over as soon as the book starts. Then comes the sabbing (sabotaging fox hunts) and the drama.

Cash, an ex-sab, has some secret he won’t tell anyone. He’s mistrustful of Rae, the Sab. They fight. They run from each other. They come together. They fight, they

The main story arc of this book revolves around the fox hunting in UK and the saboteur, in this case both the protagonist. Cash is Lucky's roommate and he already left his old life as a saboteur behind after an incident. A random hook up with Rae eventually lead him back to a life he never thought of revisiting.

Is eye opening to read about the fox hunting from an English author, who I assume have an in depth knowledge about the issue she's writing. The injustice make me rage and whenever Rae and

I've been a fan of Garrett Leigh since way back in the days of Pete and Ash (Slide...a must read!). I adore her writing and her British boys! Not surprisingly, I fell fast for Cash and Rae. Is there anything sexier than a guy who's passionate for a cause? And when that cause is animal rights, I'm a goner. I love how they met and that they didn't instantly fall in love, even though they had amazing chemistry. Their attraction grew as they got to know each other and found out how much they had in ...more

I'm a huge fan of Garrett Leigh's. She's written some pretty fantastic books, but sadly Cash was not one of them. It missed the mark for me, big time.

Look, I don't need books to focus solely on the romance or the main characters. I love police procedurals where the romance takes second or even third fiddle to the investigation and solving crimes. But I also know that going into a mystery or suspense novel. For this book, there were no hints, no warning about that. I was expecting a love story. N

This was really good. I loved Cash & Rae together. They had a ton of chemistry.

What I enjoyed the most was their role as animal advocates/hunt saboteurs. I didn't know fox hunting even existed anymore. It was an unique and fascinating backdrop for this story.

This is the first time for me that I felt that a Garrett Leigh book failed to put the romance first. Cash and Rae's relationship was far too tumultuous for me to rate them too highly, but even if I had enjoyed their story more, the book's focus on fox hunting (or more to the point, hunt saboteuring) far outstripped the romantic elements in CASH. That being said, I was really fascinated with the insight into sabbing (or saboteuring), unpleasant though some of it was. It was clear to see

This was an interesting book again by Garrett Leigh where the most critical thing to the story was saving foxes!

Cash is a car mechanic with a past he doesn’t want to go back to. An encounter with Rae though complicates things.

Rae is a sab, saboteur, who tries to sabotage hunters from killing foxes. It’s not easy and there are a lot of loses. But Rae won’t give up even if Goon’s clan of hunters are trying to stop them.

This was one of the rare GL books that didn't grab me with unforgettable characters and intense storytelling. I'm sure it's there I just didn't get hooked by it. I think that I was less engaged because this book starts off with such an unbelievable coincidence that it could only happen in real life, not in fiction. Since the beginning turned me off so much, I just never did get as invested in this book as I usually do. In fact, I almost DNF'd this as soon as Rae turned back up on Cash's doorstep ...more

DNF at 56%, but I still felt it deserved three stars.

This is Garrett Leigh and I still love her writing, her attention to detail and the Britishness of her books.
However, the topic of sabbing fox hunts simply didn’t draw my interest. Not that it isn’t wrong to kill innocent animals in the name of a (so called) sport, but watching the MCs and all their actions left me uncomfortable and at some points a bit bored.

I’m sure there will be plenty of people who totally love his book and good on them!

Wow... I honestly didn’t know what I was expecting when reading this. I didn’t understand sabbing or even fox hunting. I do feel ridiculously happy...well, happy isn’t the right word, perhaps...respect? Yes, respect is more like it. I do feel mad amounts of respect for authors who not only are able to craft an entertaining story but also highlight issues that are often overlooked.

Case in point, this book, Cash. It highlights the utter inhumane sport of fox hunting. Granted, it might be

This romance was not only good but the way the story and themes in the book were handled was absolutely brilliant.
I honestly did not know much about fox hunting or how this is such a debated topic in England so I wasn't sure if this would make me not connect with the characters. 
I shouldn't have doubted Garret and her amazing talent. She didn't only delivered an beautiful romance but educated me on this subject.

This story failed to grab me in the way that most of other GL books did.

I quite liked Rae, but I can't say the same about Cash. Throughout most of the story he can't decide what he wants. Not when it comes to Rae and not when it comes to sabbing. He says one thing, then does the opposite. He changes his mind countless times and never fully commits to anything. His relationship with Rae is a constant push and pull and lacking communication.

I gotta say that though I'm a HUGE fan of Garrett, and I'm saying that after reading ALL of her books, this book simply wasn't for me. I had a hard time connecting with both MCs and frankly with the subject at hand. Cash and Rae have the same calling in life - saving foxes from illegal hunts. While I LOVE animals and I do NOT agree with these kind of cruel acts I also in a way see no point to "Sabing" - Sabotaging (illigal) hunts. The whole thing felt futile from beginning till end and

What an absolute corker of a book! Garrett Leigh has done it again!

I was just so into this book, man. Everything from the setting to the plot to the characters was so fricking believable (apart from the weird line about MI5 at the beginning). I genuinely felt like I was right there beside Cash and Rae the whole time.

Without giving anything away this story is a wonderful, but emotionally taxing, take on the fox hunting that’s still rife in England despite the bans, and the sabateurs who literally

I was really looking forward to Cash’s story. We met him in the previous book as the guy who works at the garage with Lucky and who rents Lucky a room in his house. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but this was not even close. We know Cash has some secrets, and even though they come out, and they seem to align with Rae and his current situation, I didn’t think that would almost completely take over the story.

Rae is a sab, or saboteur of hunts (foxhunts). He lives like a gypsy in a caravan/camp

I was wondering what's Cash story after I finished Dom and Lucky's story.
I read about fox hunter awhile back when I read regency romance, and I didn't know that it's still going on in England.
Cash and Rae's first met didn't include foxes at all term, far from it. It was supposed to be just one off hook up. But fate brought them back together unexpectedly, and like it or not, they're involved deeper than they're wish for.
This is a typical Garrett's tale, with angst and a relationship that felt l

I'm not going to rate it because I feel like this is definitely a matter of personal taste. I couldn't really connect with the hunters vs. saboteur theme. Looking at it from across a wide ocean, the whole thing seemed extreme to me. Then, when Cash decided (view spoiler) It didn't seem logical to me.
