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.

Cash is packed with heart stopping action, romance and scorching hot steamy scenes. I usually prefer a slower build up but I have realized that I love it when Leigh starts off with a hook up and later on the MCs accidentally meet again and kick things off. This is exactly what happens in this book. The coincidence seemed a little far fetched but I rolled with it.

This is not a very angsty book compared with Leigh's other books, meaning that the MCs don't have a troubled background or a tragic past.

I admit I didn’t know much about the extent of illegal fox hunting in UK and the role of saboteurs who fight against it but it was perfectly explained, I had no problem following. The theme is like a third character, equally proportional to the romance. I liked that Cash and Rae weren't only attracted too each other, but they were also connected on a higher level which had to do with their beliefs.

Lucky and Dom are very present and play a big role in this story. I loved them even more here. Dom especially steps up and shows the kind of man he is.

I’m pretty excited for the third book. The excerpt was amazing.

Recommended!

Renée The cover seems "lighter" than the heavy reads by Leigh. Let me know if this one is more my style.

Ele Will do!

It's lighter in so much as it's not the usual traumatic background MCs dealing with issues.

But it's not a light read imho no - the narrative surrounds fox hunting and saboteurs so it's complex and still contains angst but of a slightly different type.

Renée That actually sounds like it’d be better for me. I’ve avoided Leigh’s books because of the constant traumatic backgrounds. Thanks!

I think you'd be okay Renée, Cash does have something in his past but it's not trauma as such in the usual addiction, abuse etc type way.
