My Leading Man is the first book in a new Harper Logan series, The Neeson Boys, which features Steven, Gavin and Jay Neeson. Each book can be read as a standalone story, but is more enjoyable when read as a full trilogy!
MY REVIEW: It’s sweet, but there’s an air of strained sadness throughout that I can’t help but wonder how the characters weren’t choking on it. You knew, saw, felt what was coming from the first page. Like a fist to the gut, repeatedly. Yet you kept reading, hoping you didn’t know you were right.
Then, oops, I’m a reserved, cold-hearted, um, and I’m breaking both our hearts FOR NO REASON. I hate when people do this. I’m glad karma had our back, Steven. Just sayin’. Paybacks…
All this to say you are able to see everything that is coming from a mile away, but you can still get drawn in and enjoy what’s going on if you know not to take the material too seriously. It’s meant to be a lighthearted romance, not a serious drama or novel. It delivers.
Groomed to Perfection (Neeson Boys Book 2)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: “I don’t know where to go from here.”

Five years after graduating, he’s saddled with massive student loan debt and a finance career he isn’t passionate about.

In desperate need of a boost, he goes to Rosebridge’s gay bar one night and meets Leigh—the man that’ll change his life forever.

Leigh Hensley is a rich kid with a trust fund—but he uses every single cent of it to take care of the animals he’s welcomed into his home. Too bad his parents don’t approve of him running an animal rescue. They want him to get married… immediately, or they’re cutting him off. Leigh’s at a loss until he runs into Gavin in a bar and realizes they could come to a mutually beneficial agreement. The two agreed to get married—for each other’s convenience.
“We need to be able to trust each other.”
Leigh and Gavin find that they have to do more and more to satisfy the Hensley parents’ demands, but in the process, they find they might have a connection after all. But Gavin’s worried Leigh won’t like him just the way he is, and Leigh doubts Gavin’s interest in the animal rescue. Will this marriage last long enough for Leigh to get control of his trust fund? And will Gavin overcome his insecurities so he can finally find the love he deserves?

MY REVIEW: Everybody say “Awww!” cuz this is full of the cute. Leigh is described probably about 14 different times as adorable. Gavin starts out as a teddy bear and becomes a cuddly, sexy hunk. There’s all the critters. Oh, and then we’ve got a sweet cameo by Russ of Cake My Day.
I’m not even mentioning how many proposals there are. Read and find out. This was a sweet, diverting read and I was thoroughly entertained.
I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.
