My Mate Jack 

Lucky Man 

Heated Beat Collection Paperback

My Mate Jack

Will Barter’s been in love with his best mate Jack for as long as he can remember. They’ve shared everything: love, life, laughs, even Will’s first kiss. But Jack’s straight, and Will’s long-buried infatuation means nothing until their last summer together draws to a close.

Then one night, everything changes, but with Will bound for university in Leeds, and Jack for his dream DJ job in Ibiza, there’s no time to explore their blurred lines. Before long all that’s left are secrets, lies, and misunderstandings.

In the months that follow, anger and hurt overshadow fifteen years of friendship, and Will must dig deep to remember Jack is his mate… his best mate, and nothing matters more than that, right?

Lucky Man

As a diehard music fan, a dirty, smoky gig is Vice Squad Detective Danny Jones’s idea of heaven. While watching one of the most popular bands in Northern England, the sight of gorgeous rock star Finn McGovern changes his life forever.

Beneath the tattoos and leather jacket, Finn is kind and sweet, but when he confesses a dark secret to Danny, it tests their fledgling bond. Danny digs deep to accept Finn, but before long, a terrifying trail of death threatens to tear them apart before they’ve even got started.

A monster is killing prostitutes on Danny’s patch, and when a dead girl turns up too close to home, Danny discovers a heartbreaking link between the girl and his bright new life with Finn, a life he’ll do anything to protect.


My Mate Jack
OMG Garrett Leigh never lets me down. Even though this was a shorter story than her other work it was packed with perfection. Will and Jack are best friends and as they grow and move on they never lose each other. In fact, they grow closer. Garrett has an amazing gift of sucking you in to her worlds and this was just that! Friends to lovers is one of my most favorite tropes and My Mate Jack is everything that makes the Friends to Lovers thing work! I absolutely loved every part of this short story.
Lucky Man
This is an awesome series!!!! You wouldn't think a cop and a rocker would mesh so well but they do! I absolutely LOVE Danny and Finn together. People underestimate each other on the whole and this was no different for Danny and Finn. As usual Garrett Leigh nailed the emotions and the flow was perfect! In the first book we dealt with the Friends to Lovers, in Lucky Man it's an opposites attract trope. Of course Garrett Leigh makes it work flawlessly! 
Now that these two stories are bundled (I read them separately)  I can't think of a better book to read! You'll put it down and have to suffer the book hangover!
