Only Love - Garrett Leigh - 4.5/5

The diagnosis of a chronic stomach condition leaves thirty-two-year-old Sergeant Jed Cooper with little choice but to call time on his Army career. Then on the dusty streets of Kirkuk, an ambush gone tragically wrong decimates his team, and he returns to the US with a shattered leg and the memory of his best friend dying in his arms.

Life in his sleepy hometown proves intolerable until he finds solace in a lakeside cabin with vivacious young carpenter, Max O’Dair. In the shadow of the epilepsy that periodically plagues Max, he and Jed form an unspoken bond. After a late night episode, Jed realizes how much Max means to him, and life has taught him not to waste time.

But the lines between contentment and complacency are blurred. Things left hidden resurface to tear through their world, and before they can repair the damage, death comes to call again. Faces, past and present, rally around them to weather the storm, but before long, they are left with only love.

Review 4.5/5

Cute, sweet and fluffy... that is not what this book is. It is angst and emotion and sadness and realisation and love and just plain awesome. There is also a dog. The dog is cute and fluffy. There is a very real ADHD feel to this book. It is frantic in places which only serves to make the quiet times that much more intense. Am a bit gutted because my next Heroes book has a service dog... but I'll try not to worry I can't write it as well as Garrett!

As I thought, I love this book, as I love everything by Garrett. AND I have it in signed paperback as well... so win/win...
