Title: Rare (Roads #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Garrett Leigh (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: January 17, 2014 – 240 pgs


Paramedic Pete Adams lived through the year from hell watching his lover, Ash, fall apart, and the precarious balance between work and home is becoming more strained. His heart is always home, with Ash, but the dark side to his job is weighing him down.

Tattoo artist Ash Fagin is recovering from a nervous breakdown triggered by revelations about his traumatic childhood. His battle with mental illness is far from over, but with Pete by his side, he’s feeling good again, so good he doesn’t notice something missing until it walks right into his living room.

Ash believes he’s had enough coincidence in his life, but when a voice from the past comes looking for him, it takes the devastating injuries of the one he loves most to convince him to let a ghost become the family he never knew he wanted.

**Audiobook Review**
I’m a bit torn on this book as to how to review it so I guess I’ll do my best to explain why.
In the first book, I LOVED Pete, but then we sort of lost him in this book and with that my interest dwindled. While Ash grew and adapted a lot more from the first book and where we first met him, I still didn’t like him and he came off as a very whiney character to me.
I did like that Ash found a surprising connection to his past that ended up helping him. Although as much as Ellie was interesting in the first book, she fell flat in every aspect as a friend in this book and really was the stuck up snob she said she wasn’t in the first.
All in all, I’ll read more from this author in the future, but this book wasn’t as good to me as the first was.
