Title: My Only Regret

Author: Leigh Lennon

Genre: Male/Male Romance

About My Only Regret:

Dallas:

He’s the one that got away. But, Banks Weston is more than just the man who got away. I let him go. He’d been ready to share with the world his true self, living life openly. He’s loud and proud. It’s all the many things I’m not. It took me a while, but I did it—everyone knows I’m gay. I want him back. My betrayal broke his heart. No—I obliterated it. But somehow, our paths cross again, and we have a reason to come together and pretend we’re something we’re not. Though in my heart, I’ll always hope for the second chance I don’t deserve.

 

Banks:

I both hate him and love him all at the same time. His arrogant smirk, the way he rakes his hands through his hair when he’s nervous, and how he lightens any situation with his humor—are just a few things I miss about Dallas Phillips. I won’t let him suck me in again by his charming nature. My guard is up. I’m standing firm. That is until we find a reason to be together. We’ll have to fake it, showing the whole world that we’re a couple. Then again, it won’t be hard because my heart has never stopped loving him.

5 Stars

I was looking forward to this book as soon as I had finished reading My Only Reason, which is the first book in this series. While it is Dallas that we meet in it, I find myself solidly on Team Banks in this book. That said, I still very much liked Dallas; he just had some work to do—that’s all.
I enjoyed how this book was told from both POVs. That way we got a broad view of their shared past as well as their present situation, which happens to be co-chairing an LGBTQ+ foundation to help kids who are kicked out after coming out. I loved and appreciated this storyline. Even though this story is fiction, it brings awareness to something that, unfortunately, is not.
These men had chemistry throughout the entire book. It didn’t matter if they were angry or happy; it was there, screaming away, even when in the background. It got the better of them despite attempts to ignore it. It was easy to root for these two men. They were so darn likable.
We got to see quite a few familiar faces, including Garrison, whom we also met in book one. Ryder and Crush made a lot of appearances in the book, as they were teammates and friends with Dallas, and now Banks, whom they met through the foundation. They, too, helped with it. I enjoyed getting to see them again, and now want to read their book all over again.
My heart went out to Jonah and Sally. Thankfully, so did Banks and Dallas’. They were so sweet with the kids and so protective. It was heartwarming to read.
This was a well-constructed story with engaging characters. This author knows how to write in such a way that you get drawn in and before you know it the book is over, leaving you wanting for more. The author gives us a little gem at the end of the story, that hints at the next book. I, for one, am very excited! I can’t wait to read it.

4 Stars!

One of my pet peeves is when the character that’s been wronged forgives the other too easily, and trust me, I know it’s difficult to find the right balance. In this instance, Dallas left Banks after they’d decided to come out together, and if it’s bad enough to leave your boyfriend, imagine how much worse it is to leave your secret husband of just a week? You can believe I was #TeamBanks right from the start.

However, and this is a matter of personal preference, while I could see why Banks kept Dallas at arm’s length, at some point, it became too much. Especially after they fostered Sally and Joe, who were just adorable and what they needed to become a family. Banks and Dallas were great together, but it took Banks so long to forgive Dallas that I became a little disenchanted of the push and pull and I couldn’t get fully invested in their relationship afterward, no matter how good it was.

Despite this, I found the book emotional, angsty, sweet, and engaging, and I have no trouble recommending it.
