Heated Beat Collection – Garrett Leigh
My Mate Jack
Will Barterís been in love with his best mate Jack for as long as he can remember. Theyíve shared everything: love, life, laughs, even Willís first kiss. But Jackís straight, and Willís long-buried infatuation means nothing until their last summer together draws to a close.
Then one night, everything changes, but with Will bound for university in Leeds, and Jack for his dream DJ job in Ibiza, thereís no time to explore their blurred lines. Before long all thatís left are secrets, lies, and misunderstandings.
In the months that follow, anger and hurt overshadow fifteen years of friendship, and Will must dig deep to remember Jack is his mateÖ his best mate, and nothing matters more than that, right?
As a diehard music fan, a dirty, smoky gig is Vice Squad Detective Danny Jonesís idea of heaven. While watching one of the most popular bands in Northern England, the sight of gorgeous rock star Finn McGovern changes his life forever.
Beneath the tattoos and leather jacket, Finn is kind and sweet, but when he confesses a dark secret to Danny, it tests their fledgling bond. Danny digs deep to accept Finn, but before long, a terrifying trail of death threatens to tear them apart before theyíve even got started.
A monster is killing prostitutes on Dannyís patch, and when a dead girl turns up too close to home, Danny discovers a heartbreaking link between the girl and his bright new life with Finn, a life heíll do anything to protect.
