Misfits by Garrett Leigh



Restaurant owner Tom Fearnes has loved his partner Cass for as long as he can remember, but their work often keeps them apart. When he meets a striking young man named Jake on the vibrant streets of Camden Town, their heady first encounter takes an unexpected turn.

Jake Thompson can hardly believe his luck when he wakes up in Tom’s bed. Tom is gorgeous, kind, and . . . taken. Tom’s explanation of his open relationship leaves Jake cold, but Tom is too tempting, and when hard times force Jake to accept Tom’s helping hand, he finds himself between two men who’ve lost their way.

Cass Pearson is a troubled soul. He loves Tom with all he has, but some days it feels like he hasn’t much to give. Jake seems like the perfect solution. Cass risks everything to push Jake and Tom together, but Jake resists, wary, until the darkness of Cass’s past comes to call. Then Jake finds himself the last man standing, and it’s time to dig deep and shine a light for the men he’s grown to love.

" “I like Cass. You won’t let him stay away, will you? I don’t want to be the reason he doesn’t come home.”
“That’s not going to happen.” Tom kissed Jake’s hand. “He wants you here, and we’ll be here for you as much you want us.”
“Both of you?”
“If that’s what you want."

I'm so happy and blessed I can read this gem earlier.
OMG..guys, you're going to love the silent Tom, the cute adorable guy Jake with his Tourette, and Cass, a hot sexy chef restaurant and his fucked up past.
It was Tom, who found Jake when he's feeling so lonely and missed Cass while Cass busied himself working.
They never knew before, that there's something missing in their (actually solid) open relationship.
They are both loved each other , Cass is Tom's love of his life.
But still...something's missing.
After Jake came into their life...

This is what I love about Garrett Leigh's characters. They're NOT perfect.
They're usually people with so many flaws, and disability, like Jake and Cass.
Jake struggled with his Tourette, Cass struggled with his unresolved past, and Tom, he's struggled with both of them.

There's a twist, drama, but not over the top drama, just enough drama to make me cry...*smirk*
Bu, I know from the start, that their relationship is SOLID.

Jake smiled. “You don’t remember the sun?”
“Fuck the sun, Jake. I only saw you.”

I loved it when Jake and Cass's relationship grew, from strangers, to being friends, best friends, and finally, lovers.
I loved how Cass let Tom "have" Jake for himself, and he's just being happy for them.
I loved how their lovemaking was so careful, and sexy at the same time.
I loved how both Jake and Cass, adored and idolized Tom so much and always trying to make him happy.
I loved how Tom, always... always embrace them with all the love he have.
And I loved how finally Cass and Tom realized that, Jake, a lost man, a flawed guy from some strange place, is become their missing link and gathered them all, in his very own way.
And I loved how Tom and Cass, respected and treated Jake as their equal.
Finally, they're found each other.

I'll leave you with some of my favorite quotes..

""You can touch me Tom, but do it because you want to, not because you feel sorry for me ""

"A flush crept over his fair skin, and a sheen of sweat glistened. With his strong body and set jaw, the dim light of the room made him look like a god. Only the tender gleam in his eyes gave him away as a man entirely human—too human to hurt the love of his life beneath him."

"Cass let out a desperate gasp. His face was hidden, but the plaintive plea needed no explanation. He needed this, needed to feel something all consuming, but he couldn’t take much more.

And Tom heard his call and pulled him up, wrapped his arms so tight around him that Cass’s breath caught in his chest. “I’ve got you.”"

"Tom smiled a little, though it didn’t feel quite right in their bleak surroundings. “He’s like that. I worried for ages that he let this . . . thing develop between us because he had nothing else, but I see the way he looks at you now, and I know he loves you.”
Cass snorted. “And there’s never been any doubt he loves you. Poor kid was head over heels from day one.""

"Cass opened his mouth, but Tom silenced him with a kiss.“I don’t need your promises. I just need you to do it.”"
