“I don’t know where to go from here.”
Gavin Neeson worked hard to get into Beasley University—one of the most prestigious institutions in the country—so he could make a better life from himself. Five years after graduating, he’s saddled with massive student loan debt and a finance career he isn’t passionate about. When his ex-boyfriend cheats on him and he gains weight, Gavin finds himself in a rut. In desperate need of a boost, he goes to Rosebridge’s gay bar one night and meets Leigh—the man that’ll change his life forever.
“I’m doing it all for them.”
Leigh Hensley is a rich kid with a trust fund—but he uses every single cent of it to take care of the animals he’s welcomed into his home. Too bad his parents don’t approve of him running an animal rescue. They want him to get married… immediately, or they’re cutting him off. Leigh’s at a loss until he runs into Gavin in a bar and realizes they could come to a mutually beneficial agreement. The two agreed to get married—for each other’s convenience.
“We need to be able to trust each other.”
Leigh and Gavin find that they have to do more and more to satisfy the Hensley parents’ demands, but in the process, they find they might have a connection after all. But Gavin’s worried Leigh won’t like him just the way he is, and Leigh doubts Gavin’s interest in the animal rescue. Will this marriage last long enough for Leigh to get control of his trust fund? And will Gavin overcome his insecurities so he can finally find the love he deserves?
Groomed to Perfection is a 45,000 word steamy MM contemporary romance. This page turner has has no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after.
Groomed to Perfection is the second book in a new Harper Logan series, The Neeson Boys, which features Steven, Gavin and Jay Neeson. Each book can be read as a standalone story, but is more enjoyable when read as a full trilogy!
This story had, truth to be told, aspects you could find over the top but strangely I really liked them. Normally insta-love can be a thing which let me cringe, sometimes it is really good. Insta-marriage is even more strange but funny as hell.
This book had a lot of funny aspects and I was entertained by the two main character. They had a slight “freakness”, in lack of better terms I tell it so.
Of course I was angry for Leigh, how much his parents set him unter pressure. Sometimes I really wanted to punch Leigh’s mother tbh. xD
Gavin is a charming second main character and both guys get along so well.
This story is definitely different than the first book in the trilogy of the Neeson brothers. 🙂
I can really give 4 out of 5 stars, a few aspects were strange therefore no full points.
