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 see him showing on his doorstep and even more stunned that Rae is connected to his past as an activist fighting against fox-hunting.

Both men are strong-willed, stubborn and not very good at communicating - emphasis on "not good". Despite their undeniable chemistry towards each other and their shared passion for fighting illegal fox-hunting, their temper and Cash’s previous bad experience with his lover keep getting on the way to their attraction.

As usual, Garrett Leigh’s is great, the characters are well fleshed out and the angst is deliciously sprinkled. However, the romance took a back seat in favour of the focus on fox-hunting and hunt saboteuring. That focus was too much for me and my interest faded after a while -nothing to do with the writing quality nor the storyline ; just me being a little bit interested but no more than that by that topic-, until it picked up again when the story came back to Cash and Rae’s relationship and their journey to a strong HFN.

Not my favorite from this author but an enjoyable read nonetheless : after all, I was ready to virtually "shake" Cash and Rae to make them talk to each other, so it means that this story did grab me somehow !!

Ariana Ha! Thank you, thank you! 😘
I am so glad I'm not the only one who didn't go bonkers over this. I got a bit 'tired' of hearing so many details about sabbing. I just don't understand extremist behaviour, even if it is for animal rights. Love your review! xxx

LOL : you're welcome, Ariana 😅 Yes, Not a topic that raised my curiosity, so of course, no "bonker" for me either. And I love - and glad I can afford - my comfort, ie being able to get a warm shower and sleep in a nice bed, LOL !!!
Have a lovely week-end, Ariana, <3


Cadiva Excellent review Christelle, I rated slightly higher but agree totally with all your points.

People on both sides of this debate can behave dreadfully imho.

Thank you, Cadiva.
I saw your thoughts on that in your review : a touchy topic, for sure :-(


Simone Big emphasis on 'not good'! LOL. And yep, I join you in the shaking them department, but as an animal lover I found the topic really interesting. Granted it could have been a bit less detailed and the story should have concentrated more on the romance. So, I'll return the compliment, Christelle: fab review! :) <3

Thank you, Simone. Yep, I can do with not too much romance, as long as there's something else to chew on, but here, nope for me :-( As long as it's not a pattern with an author, though, I'm good : we can't win them all, 😉
Talking about animals, it seems you're anxious about Jamilah. I hope it's not getting worse 😞 Have a good week !

I'm okay with no or a slow developing romance, but here the pace was off and I couldn't buy it. 😒 Towards the end it felt like "Damn, these guy were supposed to fall in love... Well, let's add the L-word!" Ugh, that didn't work for me at all. 😉
Oh, it's better now. At least it looks like it. Seems like I found her hay that tastes better so she doesn't have to spit it out again. 🙄 And the eye looks good. 🤗

Gahh I am eternally late, answering this. Thanks. Hope you are having a good time this week. I'm away from home until Saturday and won't be reading a lot. 😘

Well, now that I went to the dentist, my week is going to be smooth 😅 Enjoy your week away, Ariana !!
