Release Blitz Review: Kiss Me Again by Garrett Leigh

Kiss Me Again
by Garrett Leigh
Release Date: June 7, 2019
Genre: M/M Romance
Goodreads

Tree surgeon Aidan Drummond is content with his own company. He works alone, and lives alone, and it doesn’t occur to him to want anything else until a life-changing accident lands him in hospital. Then a glimpse of the beautiful boy in the opposite bed changes everything.

Ludo Giordano is trapped on the ward with a bunch of old men. His mind plays tricks on him, keeping him awake. Then late one night, a new face brings a welcome distraction. Their unlikely friendship is addictive. And, like most things in Ludo’s life, temporary.

Back in the real world, Aidan’s monochrome existence is no longer enough. He craves the colour Ludo brought him, and when a chance meeting brings them back together, before long, they’re inseparable again.

But bliss comes with complications. Aidan is on the road to recovery, but Ludo has been unwell his entire life, and that’s not going to change. Aidan can kiss him as much as he likes, but if he can’t help Ludo when he needs him most, they don’t stand a chance.

"Kiss Me Again is a deliciously tender and prickly romance about the intimacy that comes with acceptance. Ludo and Aidan accept and love each other for exactly who they are—complications, injuries, mental health issues, moods—and I loved them for it." -- Roan Parish




Garrett Leigh is back once again with her tortured heroes and a love story that warm your heart. Aidan is a tree surgeon who was hit with an accident. As he lay on the hospital bed, he met a quirky roommate, Ludo. Ludo is bipolar, but not the split personality kind that I read before. Ludo mind can be a chaotic mess, but he can also be so sweet and caring to the grumpy Aidan.

Compare to Garrett's other works, this one is less angsty. Aidan is a grumpy and lonely fellow, but he is always kind to Ludo. Ludo also prefer to be on his own to deal with his condition, but keeping himself away from Aidan prove to be challenging and faith brought them back together again.

I like their relationship which came off as slow burn with both very understanding of each other circumstances. I knew there was going to be a set back on Ludo's condition and I was bracing myself for something bad to happen, however, I'm please that it isn't overly dramatic and was handled pretty well with low amount of angst.
