~Review~ Strays by Garrett Leigh~




Strays (Urban Soul #2) by Garrett Leigh

*****4.5 Stars*****


This is the second book in the series and CAN be read as a standalone as the characters from Misfits ( book one ) are well introduced.

I adored Lenny from the start.

Working as a server in Misfits Restaurant he loves to dye his hair and go dancing but his life has been put on hold due to a stalker.With no real evidence, the Police seem reluctant to do anything which leaves Lenny at breaking point.This is where Cass, his boss, steps in.He entrusts him to one of his chefs, Nero with strict instructions for Nero to keep a close eye on him.

Nero is a workaholic-he’s grumpy and rude and the last thing he needs is one of Cass’s Strays to babysit.At first, he has no idea what to do with Lenny in the kitchen but soon recognizes that Lenny has quite a flair for putting together flamboyant plates of food.

Before anything sexual happens between them they come to rely on each other in different ways and for different reasons.Nero has a past which he keeps bottled up and is very reluctant to share it with Lenny.Nero becomes fiercely protective of Lenny and Lenny recognizes that there is so much more to Nero than his grumpy exterior.

There’s not an abundance of sex scenes but when they do become close it’s perfect and, I felt, just right for the story.The dynamics of their sexual relationship was not what I was expecting but it definitely worked.There’s a great feeling of family and belonging throughout the book not least because of the involvement of Tom, Cass, and Jake from book one.

This book ticked so many boxes for me.

Two highly likable but different characters.
Great supporting characters.
A bit of angst, but not overdone.
The Kitchen/Restaurant setting, I just loved.
Enough sexy times to keep me happy.
And of course, the fact that it’s British and set in London was a huge plus.

Highly recommended!
