Resist, (Sphere of Irony 3), Heather C. Leigh
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, LGBTQIA
I’ve read a couple of Heather’s novels, but not the first two of the Sphere of Irony quartet. That’s not essential though as each can be read as stand alones. Maybe I would have got a bit more from it if I’d read the earlier ones and felt I knew the characters – in this case Gavin – a little better from knowing his history.
Its a fun read but I was expecting more actual Band stuff, more connection with the music and the other band members and we don’t see much of that. I liked Gavin and Mitch as individuals, but couldn’t really feel the connection between them. At times Gavin came over as childish rather than the (i think) late twenties person he is, and it’s hard to believe that Mitch has not really recognised his sexuality before now, him being the same age. He seems to be kidding himself and yet he’s been attracted to men, so why I don’t know? Maybe its that What’s Expected thing, especially in the workplace he was at for so long. Its the tenderness, the drama and issues that go with m/m romance that attracts me to it and here I just wasn’t feeling them.
Now Mitch has left the FBI and is working for himself, and as a favour to a friend he takes on Mitch’s problem, trying to find the stalker who’s become increasingly dangerous. Given that, it was hard to understand why both Mitch and Gavin were so careless some of the time....acted as if the danger wasn’t there, Gavin especially trying to sneak off without his protection and grumbling about the measures needed.Read more ›
This is the third book in the Sphere of Irony series about the members of the aforementioned band. Books 1 and 2 were about Adam and Dex who grew up together in a poor an crime ridden area of London. Book 3 and book 4, yet to be published, are about Gavin and Hawke the two remaining members of the band.
Resist can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend the previous books, not just because they're great, but because there are hints at the Gavin we get to know better in this book. In book 1 Gavin was portrayed as the cool, calm surfer dude, then in book 2 it became clear that some of that was a front and he wasn't as happy as he seemed.
In book 3 he's nervous, on edge, snappy and difficult to work with but its understandable considering he has a stalker whose behaviour is escalating. In comes Mitch, ex-FBI turned security consultant and they wind each other up from their first meeting. Gavin is instantly attracted to him and is snappy because of that and in turn Mitch is annoyed by the childish tantrums Gavin has.
The plot follows the increasing threat of the stalker and the sexual tension between Gavin and Mitch.
It's not often a writer composes a series containing both MF and MM storylines; most seem to stick to one or other. Heather writes both relationships equally well, creating realistic characters you can picture easily as you read.
I've thoroughly enjoyed this series so far. I've become embroiled in the world of Sphere of Destiny and am now a total groupie. I look forward to Hawke's story being published and I'm also off to try other books by Heather C. Leigh.
Gavin, the bass player in the band, has been hiding his true self from the public and when he finally comes out I was amazed at how smoothly it went. I mean people criticized, people asked questions, but Gavin is able to finally just be. Even with all the drama around him, the band, and his stalker he could be himself. No more pretending, faking, or hiding behind closed doors. I realize that this is not the main storyline, but it is what hit me.
The sparks flew instantly when Mitch walked in the door. After that first meeting the reader has to know that things are going to get interesting between the two of them. The fact that Gavin knows who he is but Mitch is still in denial just adds to the story. The day dreaming the two of them do about each other was just as hot as their actual relationship. My favorite part of their relationship was the fighting and then the respect that follows their fights. They both showed their tempers, but when they settled down to think they realized where the other was coming from.
Heather C. Leigh is amazing. She handles tough situations, both the gay aspect and the stalker aspect, with respect and writes a perfect story. If you are looking for hot, steamy love along with a mystery of who is stalking Gavin this is the book for you. I recommend this entire series but this can be read as a standalone.
** Thanks Heather C. Leigh for providing me with a copy of Resist.***
