Product Description

Loathing Leo by Ash Penn



Loathing Leo is pure hell. Loving him takes so very little effort, but how can Sam love a man who belongs to someone else?

Following yet another drunken night on the tiles, Sam wakes to the knowledge he’s finally hit rock bottom. He’s lost his dead-end job, his dead-end lover, and the respect of his straight best friend Michael after making a shameful pass at him the night before.

When Michael pushes Sam back into the clutches Leo Hudson, his ex lover, who whisk him away to a house in the middle of nowhere, Sam is left confused and more than a little bit irate at such a betrayal.

What is Michael playing at? He knows Sam doesn’t date closeted men. Or married men. Or fathers. As it turns out, Leo Hudson is all three.

Trapped in an isolated house with the man for the course of a weekend, Sam discovers Leo’s marriage is not all it seems. Until now he’s never given Leo the opportunity to explain himself. After all, how does one explain that a seven-month-long relationship was built on one big fat lie, anyway?

When Sam finds out the truth, he decides he can’t fight the feelings he’s tried to subdue for so long. He and Leo need to say a proper goodbye if he’s to begin his life anew. But will one final night together be enough?

The end of the weekend demands changes for them both. Can Sam make the compromise necessary to keep the man he loves, and will Leo give Sam the recognition he deserves as both partner and lover?

About the Author:


I’ve written stories about men loving men for as long as I can remember. In the days before computers and the internet, I used to hide my stories away convinced there was no market for women who wrote gay male fiction. Fast forward a few years (okay, quite a few years) and there’s not only a market, but a whole empire out there for writers like me. I’m thrilled to be able to contribute my stories and take pride in what I write.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Ash Penn. Superb. 18 Sep 2012
By mack55 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
I was very lucky to purchase this as an early release so read it a few weeks ago. I am a massive fan of Ash Penn and have all her books, each one a 5 * rating and IMO one of the best m/m authors around at the moment. Her style of writing and humour really appeals so anything she publishes will always be an automatic buy.

Like all her books ' Loathing Leo ' grabs hold of you from the word go and again manages to pull you into her characters story almost as an observer not a reader. Her stories always run a gamut of emotions and are full of complex characters who generally buck the trend of most m/m romances.

Sam is a bit of a mess, he's lost his job and Leo his ex boyfriend,and to make it worse whilst drunk he's made a pass at his straight best friend Michael. Leo had been holding secrets during their telationship , it turns out he's married, so Sam - even though they are mad about each other - kicks him out of his life, but he isn't coping well at all so Micheal who wants Sam to try to come to terms with it all, helps Leo ' kidnap ' Sam. Leo whisks him away to his parents holiday home on the coast, where he wants to try to explain about his marriage that was not all it seemed. He asks Sam to give him the weekend so they can thrash it out. After some heated arguments, Sam agrees.

As you can imagine sparks fly and passions are roused, so be prepared for a roller coaster ride, especially when their time together is interrupted by Leos wife and family who arrive unnanounced. As always Sam and Leo sizzle together, the ST is electric and happily after a lot of soul searching and hot, angry sex they do get an ' Ash Penn style ' HEA. Sexy, funny, emotional, tender and also poignant in parts - ' Loathing Leo' is another brilliant character driven novel that has earned its place, like all her other books, in my Kindle keepers and top 10 faves! Hope it ends up in yours too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic Ash Penn story 20 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ash Penn is one of my favourite M/M authors, and I honestly cannot express how much I loved this book. I read it pretty much straight through, taking just a break to go to work (damn day job!)

Admittedly it's maybe a little different from 'traditional M/M' - Ash Penn writes about 'real' people who hurt each other and some of the time are pretty awful human beings, but that's what makes it so interesting IMO. Excellent writing and characterisation, and Sam is as cute as a button.

Recommended to fans of M/M who like flawed characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should I have liked these people? 8 Oct 2012
By Lizzyb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought that the concept for this book was great but, I disliked every character. Leo was a total jerk who I thought never really showed any remorse for his actions. Sam had no sense of self worth at all, maybe what domineering Leo actually liked about him since Sam didn't have any other redeeming qualities that I could tell. Don't waste your money. I'm sorry I did.
