Bullet (Blue Boy Studio #1) - Garrett Leigh
Cover Design: Black Jazz Design
Seven years later, he's a veteran with a reputation as one of Blue Boy Studio's most ruthless tops, and when his boss suggests it's time for a change, he finds himself staring down the barrel of a gun. Figuratively speaking, at least.
Enter Sonny Valentine, a go-go dancer at Blue's sister club, Silver's. Levi has secretly admired Sonny from afar for years, but there's a problem. He can't stand Sonny and the feeling is entirely mutual. When Levi learns Sonny is to play the third part in a scene he already considers his worst nightmare, he figures things can't get any worse.
But when preparations for the scene from hell collide with tragic events in his personal life, he finds his fast-growing, red-hot attraction to Sonny just might be the only thing left between him and a bullet.
I’ve always been amazed at occupations. I know that sounds stupid but stay with me here. When I see someone punching numbers, dancing around a pole, waiting tables, anything I always want to know their story. Is this their choice? Are the stuck? What’s happening?
In Bullet we meet Levi. He’s a porn star who’s been in the business awhile. He’s a top… more labelled an aggressive top. He enjoys his job but, honestly, he took it because he needed the money. He has a horrible mother who has so much debt. He, for reasons I can’t fathom, wants to help her. He also runs a motorcycle shop. The one his father used to own. And if it wasn’t for his mother’s debts he wouldn’t have to do this. BUT, if he didn’t do this he also would have never met Sonny.
Sonny, omg he’s a firecracker. He doesn’t like Levi and Levi doesn’t like him. But circumstances have them forced to work with each other. I liked the push and pull of these two characters a lot. It really gave this colorful story more depth.
Since Bullet is told completely in Levi’s POV we don’t get in Sonny’s head at all and I will admit I was massively curious about him. Sonny never talks about himself or anything. We literally find out next to nothing about him. Only Levi. The book ended abruptly and left me with like a billion questions. BUT, there’s a but, this is book one and I’m hoping that book two gets us some answers. I’ll cross my fingers.
It’s entertaining and emotional. Garrett Leigh writes broken boys very well. So, I do recommend it!
