Q&A with Garrett Leigh + Giveaway!

Interview with Garrett Leigh

Tell us about your latest release!

Misfits is my first attempt at M/M/M (ménage). I’ve read many threeway books and I’ve always come away feeling that the plot was written around a bunch of crass sex scenes. Misfits is the ménage book I wanted to read. The sex, though it’s there (trust me, it’s there…) was put on the back burner, and instead I took three men who came at life from totally different perspectives and tried to weave them together into a book with a little soul. If I’ve succeeded in any small way, I’m happy.

Is this title part of a series? Without giving us spoilers, of course, what can we expect from the next e-books/books in the series?

There is a very small possibility I might write Nero’s story. Nero is a grumpy Spanish chef who works for Urban Soul, the company Tom and Cass own. He has a chip on his shoulder and a missing finger on one of his hands. Jake thinks he’s hot, and I’m inclined to agree.

What do you have in store for readers in the future? What are you working on/planning on next, aside this title/series?

My next book will be a military novel from Riptide, out in November. I just have to finish writing the bugger…

Coffee or tea?

Rooibos tea. Myself and my lovely lover drink gallons of it. Or, rather, he does, and I leave half cold mugs all over the house. I do love the stuff, though. So much so, I wrote it into Only Love for Jed and Max to bond over.

Favorite season?

Early autumn or late spring. I’m not a fan of shivering or sweating…with my clothes on.

Favorite food for breakfast?

Depending on my mood, cold pizza, eggs of any kind on toast with hot sauce, or a fat bowl of porridge with dark brown sugar and crushed raspberries.

Latest book you’ve bought and read?

M/M wise, I’ve been on an RJ Scott binge. Out of the romance world, the last book I bought and read was City of Thieves, which was stunningly awesome. So much so, I’ve lent it out to so many people (for that, read, forced on them) I have no idea where it is.


About Misfits

1Restaurant 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.

Available at: Amazon and Barnes & Noble

    I love well-written menage. I just read Threefold Cord by Julie Bozza, and it was just amazing. Misfits is definitely going on my wishlist. 🙂

  2. Shirley Ann Speakman

    I enjoyed the interview and I love tea too well I am a Brit! I’m looking forward to reading the book.


  3. Serena S.

    Thanks for the interview and review of the rprevious post. It makes me want to read this book even more.

  4. Loved the interview and the blurb. I also love a good menage story. This book is right up my alley.

  5. Denise Dechene

    Thanks for the interview. During the summer I like to drink a combination of Rooibos/Chai tea we get from Teavana. Finished Misfits and enjoyed it. Glad to read there may be another book. Nero sounded hot.


  6. debby236

    More in fo on this amazing book. Love it.

  7. Jen CW

    Love the interview. Thank you for sharing background on the book and about the tea in Only Love. Great little trivia pieces.

  8. Great interview.
    Iol, I just finished my porridge with brown sugar! I leave half cups of coffee! I absolutely love mmm.

  9. While I love menage, I have much the same problem as you describe at the beginning of this post. For the most part, they seem to be written with the view that it’s a little bit of kink to liven up a relationship. I like to see a true menage, or perhaps it might more precisely be called a polyamorous relationship, with people who are committed to each other for the long haul. And to see one coming from your wonderful mind – that’s just about the best idea I’ve heard in a long wile. I’m really looking forward to reading this one. Thanks for sharing this post, and for the giveaway. Like so many readers, I’m absolutely in love with Pete and Ash, and grateful to you for giving them to us. Best of luck, and just keep those books coming!
