Review

Holy blue blazes. Take the bass player from the rocking off the charts band of Sphere and shake it up with an ex-FBI BODY GUARD. Mix in danger. A whole heck of a lot. Drizzle with lies. A ton of secrets. Tie this hotter than hell story with a bow hand-delivered by a creepy stalker.-- Sweet & Spicy Tales

Mitch and Gavin's dominating personalities will have you going wild. Love how not only Mitch saves Gavin from his demons but Gavin saves Mitch from his demons.--Books Beyond 50 Shades
This book needs a warning label because once these two finally get together it is so HOT your not going to be able to stand it--The Book Goddess

I've never really read gay erotica before, and that's totally what this is. Not something I'd be into all the time, but it's kind of hot.

This story was, at least, better than the book featuring Dax. What a mess that was--terrible characters and a lame plot...I can't even remember every awful detail, I guess I've blocked it all out for my own survival. ;)

I wasn't sure if I was going to read this one but curiosity made me give it a go. I thought it was ok. Although, the "bad guy" was pretty obvious and the story relied a LOT on the novelty of the romance--for me anyway.

It was slow in places and I had to force myself to keep reading. I know I'm not the intended audience (as a straight female) but it could have used some better plot and character development.

As I said, it was ok.
I was ready to give up on this series as the first book was just so-so and the second one, completely awful. But the next one looks somewhat intriguing.
This third book, at least, was a step up from the second one.
Hopefully that trend will continue.

Gavin is a famous rockstar who is in danger. Mitch is hired to help keep him safe. The story of these two is hot, steamy and one I could not stop reading. Their connection was amazing. The story as Mitch and Gavin work together to solve the mystery was well thought out and kept me guessing. Well done!

Resist

By Heather C. Leigh

5 Stars

Usually when I hear about an M/F author dipping his or her toes in the delectable pool of wonder that is the M/M genre, I'm hesitant to give the book a try.
The chemistry between a man and a woman is very similar to that of a man to man, but there's a fundamental difference that many authors can't grasp their first time writing a male only couple.

I was very quickly reassured. Heather C. Leigh roped me in fast. Her style, while not sparse, is fast-paced, smooth, and gives off a frenetic energy that's hard to resist. (wink)
Mitch is the biggest case of denial I've ever seen. And, reading M/M now for a couple years exclusively, I've seen some men in denial--and he wins hands down.

Ms. Leigh does a great job of showing the reader the tension between Mitch, our retired FBI agent, and Gavin, our slightly spoiled rock star. Gavin is immediately attracted, but confused by Mitch's conflicting behaviors, and comes across as a brat more often than a suave superstar. Thanks to the alternating POVs, we get to see inside both men's heads, and understand their actions, so I was never left thinking one was a jackass and the other a helpless brat.
Mitch is endearing in his frustrations and obliviousness, and Gavin is heartbreaking with his wounded psyche and painful past.

The actual plot, that of mysterious stalker, comes in second place to the broiling tension between the two leads. The bodyguard trope is overdone, even in the M/M genre, so reading this book was actually a pleasure. It was a refreshing take on an overused plot device, and I am very thankful it never fell into a repetitive rehashing of every other bodyguard/stalker tale known to the romance world.

First it is important to note, I read this book as a stand alone and loved it!! I had no issues following the story or understanding who was who so if you love male- male stories or rocker books, or if you just love discovering a new author, I recommend this one!

Second if you know me personally or have followed me on social media, you likely know I lost my brother and only sibling to suicide. I think it is important to know that about me before I say WOW, the opening of this book is so powerful. The reader truly feels Gavin’s pain and is with him thorough the book as this scene and the events that lead up to it weave back into this wonderful story.

Words like this pulled me right into this:

"I've always loved the ocean. It's peaceful on the outside, but as they've always said, looks can be deceiving. Under those blue-green waves lie torment and fury and the ability to cut a grown man down. Sort of like me, beautiful on the outside or so people tell me but inside, I'm a twisted wreck of anguish and self-hatred."

Resist is the story of Gavin Walker, bass player for the multi-platinum selling band, Sphere of Irony and Mitch Hale a former FBI agent hired to keep Gavin safe in the face of a stalker whose actions are escalating.

This book has a lot of twists and turns that worked and were woven together to make this a "keep you glued to your kindle" kind of book.

I don’t often love the use of a movie or song reference in books but Gavin calling Mitch Johnny Utah, a reference from the movie Point Break was perfect! And this line from Gavin had me laughing out loud!

"Holy s***. Johnny Utah is a bottom I think I just died and went to heaven.

Resist by Heather C. Leigh is the third book in the Sphere of Irony series. If you are new to the series, it’s okay, you don’t have to back track and read the first two books. This book can easily be read as a stand alone novel or in series order. I can guarantee that after reading Resist you will want to read the first two books in the series.

The thing that makes this series so exceptional is it’s uniqueness. For one thing the band Sphere of Irony has it’s own unique make up. Two of the members are from the ghettos in London and the other two members are from tinsel town, Hollywood,CA. Two come from impoverished rough backgrounds and the other two come from priveliged back grounds. Together these four men have come together not only to make music but have became brothers. They fully support each other no matter what their record company, fans, and lives dictate. The other thing that makes this series unique is the characters themselves. They are not your typical wild and spoiled rockstars. They are very grounded and try to lead ordinary lives while being at the top of their careers. They have experienced it all and held onto their true selves. With the exception of one, he has to hide a part of himself. Because of the band’s popularity and his good looks, the record company wants him to hide his sexuality. He is a gay man with millions of women as fans.

Gavin Walker has had to hide his sexuality his entire life. He had to hide being gay in his early years because of his father’s career. Being a famous Hollywood producer of military action films and also being a former military career man has made his father hard. He resents his only son being gay. Gavin’s younger years were blemished with hate and despair.
