“I have no words for all the emotions I feel after reading this book! Simple and to the point it was heartbreaking yet beautiful! This was my second book by Leta Blake and it was just as good as the first!!”
“Have you ever read a book that caught you so completely off guard because while reading it, you learn more about yourself and others? A book that you thought was just going to be something to pass the time, but instead it has stayed with you even weeks after you have finished it because the meaning behind it was so strong and powerful that you can’t help but to think about it.”
“I cannot even begin to explain how much I loved this story! The way Leta wrote this story was beyond amazing. I had sooo many feels with Leith & Zach. My heart went out to both of them. You do not want to pass this one up! I cannot wait to read more of Leta’s words!”
“It’s a Leta Blake book so caring deeply for the main protagonists is a given. Along with the excitement of love and the hardship of sustaining harmony. The River Leith is a poignant journey with Leith and Zach. Their difficult task to find the high ground as the banks of their lives are flowing over and carrying with it the potential to drown them.”
“I love Leta Blake’s writing. It’s so smooth and flowing. The River Leith is told from Leith’s POV, but the reader is able to take an agonising peak in Zach’s mind when he makes these vlog entries. Let me tell you – those are heartbreaking!
The River Leith is a very real book. Don’t expect any magical solutions or convenient plot turns. This is the story of two people who manage to find their way back to each other despite all odds being stacked against them.
I highly recommend this book! Give it a try, and check Leta’s other amazing stand-alone Training Season. You will not be disappointed!”
I’m headed off for a week long writing vacation! Just me, myself, and my files in a lonely hotel room in an area of the country that provides zero temptations or distraction! In celebration, for the entire week I’m away, I’m offering my latest book The River Leith up for 60% off (aka $1.60!) at Smashwords with the following coupon.
In addition, let me give a heads up that I’m not sure what the cell phone reception will be like or the internet availability, so if I don’t respond to emails, messages, etc, right away that’s probably the reason. I’ve got blog posts scheduled to go up and hopefully I’ll still have some access to the interwebs. We’ll see how it goes. Otherwise….
“I absolutely love how Leith’s discovery of his feelings for Zach is handled. His brain “itching” at certain smells, looks, feelings. His gradual realization that the relationship is much more, at least for him, than friendship. And, the scene in the hospital garden…THE scene – when you read the book, you’ll know the one I mean – could not have been more perfect. Their connection and chemistry are amazing, and I’ll tell you what… Leta Blake writes some beautifully steamy sex scenes.Honestly, the writing style overall just really spoke to me. I could say so much more about how much I loved this book, but I’ll let you all, discover it for yourselves. I will say, though, that I’ve been looking for a long time for a book to recommend as a first time M/M read to one of my best friends, and I think I might have finally found it. I highly recommend this book, folks. And, I plan to rush out and get Leta’s other stories!!” — Jules, The Novel Approach
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.
