4.5 stars- Despite really enjoying this author’s writing, I had not read Only Love before the recent release of the second edition. And just as I’ve come to expect from Miss Leigh, her writing pulls the emotion from the moments while offering up complex characters and a fully developed story. Only Love features two characters who appear in secondary roles in the Roads series but is a complete standalone. The story picks up as an Army Ranger separates from the Army following a severe injury sustained overseas. I liked the pairing of two characters struggling with chronic issues because neither was billed as the “rescuer”. Instead, it felt as though Max and Jed drew strength from themselves while offering one another support. The connection between Jed and Max reminded me of a rolling romance. It had a steady build but with more peaks and valleys than most slow burns, and those peaks progressively carried the men toward their happily ever after. There are a good number of flashbacks for both characters, but they always pertained to the moment, were clearly notated, and progressed the plot without disrupting the flow. I love stories that show growth, and Only Love definitely features that for both characters- as individuals, as a couple, and even regarding their relationships with secondary characters. Though it doesn’t contain new content, if you’re a fan of hurt/comfort and military romances and have yet to pick this one up, Only Love offers up all the emotions and is sure to please. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*

Gut wrenching, but in a good way by the end. I haven't read a lot of books by Garrett Leigh but I have enjoyed those that I have and Only Love is no exception. This book is pretty angsty but I don't mind that type of story at all. Read the blurb – it's great and tells you about the book better than I can. What I can tell you is that this is a very intense story; no light and fluffy here. The things that Jed has seen and done during his Army career shouldn't happen to anyone. The incurable, debilitating stomach illness contracted from a virus, makes him suffer something awful and his injured leg doesn't help matters either. Max O'Dair has epilepsy but he tries not to let it rule his life. After he rents his spare bedroom to Jed, as a favor to his sister, he can't help but feel drawn to him. If only the two of them would learn to communicate better with each other. Only Love is also about family and family relationships both good and bad. Max's sister Kim is married to Jed's brother Nick and Nick doesn't really get along with anyone very well. There are a couple of very charming girls in the family, Nick and Kim's children, and their uncles both dote on them. The author hasn't put any warnings on the book, and I don't always think they are necessary, but I'd like to mention that there are some fairly graphic war scenes depicted in this story as well as time spent in hospitals. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

Jed has left the army with a devastating illness but, of course, will not tell anyone about it. He returns to his childhood hometown which is full of bad memories to recover and decide what to do now that he is a civilian. He meets his sister-in-law's brother and moves in with him. Max has his own illness to deal with but the two of them work together and create a haven though both know each is carrying a secret. I liked this book. It started slow but picked up as Max's past comes out and Jed's illness becomes known. The story was realistic as were the actions and feelings of the people involved. The story was intense as Jed is hospitalized. I was enthralled and oblivious to everything around me. I liked Max and Jed and how they created a family of those from the present and those from the past. I am glad it read this.

Two first’s for me, my first book by Garret Leigh on audio, although I’ve read many. And my first by this narrator, who has this low pitch, smoky voice that is perfect for this tale which includes Army buddies and an English speaking love interest. This audio book, coming in at just over nine hours is a perfect length for a week long drive back and forth to work and a couple of errands thrown in, another for the win side. The way that Jed and Max bonded but both had secrets that wouldn’t and or couldn’t share. The way they both want to protect and nurture each other, even knowing they each were hiding something. And when they found out the secrets how they tore them apart only to bring them closer. The heart wrenching scene in the hospital, even the cute little girls and the dog all made for an emotional heartwarming story. The secondary cast of Army friends coming in at the end brings me hope that we will have a second or third in to this?’ Book 5 rainbows Narrator 5 rainbows Overall 5 rainbows
