“Leta Blake- remember her name and add her to your TBR list NOW!!!” Smoky Mountain Dreams by Leta Blake – Smitten with Reading #gay #romance

Wow…third time’s the charm. I think with this book, Leta Blake just made it onto my auto-buy-author list. This is the third book of hers that I’ve read and it’s the third book of hers that I’ve loved. 

The book was just plain good. It moved me and entertained me and I didn’t want to stop reading from the moment I started it. It’s a really beautiful story about letting go and learning to love. And ultimately it’s a story about two men finding a family within each other. I loved it! Leta Blake- remember her name and add her to your TBR list NOW!!!”

Smoky Mountain Dreams by Leta Blake – Smitten with Reading.

Sometimes holding on means letting go Christopher Ryder and Jesse Birch are two men hanging on to the past. While Christopher has let go of his failure as a country singer in Nashville, he's still trying to please his narrow-minded, non-accepting family. His beloved Gran loves him the way he is, but Christopher feels painfully invisible to everyone else. He’s happy enough performing at the Smoky Mountain Dreams theme park in Tennessee, but even when Christopher is center stage he aches for someone to see the real him. There's more than meets the eye when it comes to bisexual Jesse. He's raising two kids and fighting with family after a tragic accident took his children’s mother. There's no room in his life for dating, his kids are his priority, and he doesn't want more than an occasional hook-up. He sure as hell doesn't want to fall hard for his favorite local singer, but when Christopher walks into his jewelry studio, Jesse hears a new song in his heart.

Memory is everything.  After an injury in the ring, amateur boxer Leith Wenz wakes to discover his most recent memories are three years out of date. Unmoored and struggling to face his new reality, Leith must cope anew with painful revelations about his family. His brother is there to support him, but it’s the unfamiliar face of Zach, a man introduced as his best friend, that provides the calm he craves. Until Zach’s presence begins to stir up feelings Leith can’t explain.  For Zach, being forgotten by his lover is excruciating. He carefully hides the truth from Leith to protect them both from additional pain. His bottled-up turmoil finds release through vlogging, where he confesses his fears and grief to the faceless Internet. But after Leith begins to open up to him, Zach's choices may come back to haunt him.  Ultimately, Leith must ask his heart the questions memory can no longer answer.

“I didn’t want this story to end….beautifully written.” Mark D’s review of Smoky Mountain Dreams #gay #romance

“I didn’t want this story to end….beautifully written. The dialogue between the main characters was so realistic and believable. Having grown up on the edge of Appalachia, I found Christopher’s struggle concerning his self worth to be very believable. 5 STARS to Ms. Blake!”
