    One thought on “The River Leith

    1. Heather K (dentist in my spare time) on said:

      This book was probably my favorite of the amnesiac tropes, though the premise was awfully simplified and pretty unrealistic, which the author freely admits. Very emotional, subtlety hot, and moderately angsty, it was a well-balanced, excellent read. I half put it in the GFY/OFY category, and half want to put it on my butt-virgins shelf, because even though Leith was in a gay relationship for a year, he has no memory of that time. When he awakens from his coma, he fully believes that he is straig [...]

      4.5 HEARTS--An amnesiac amateur boxer who loses the last three years of his memories? And we're talking forgetting major memories like having a lover or that he was gay.Seriously?And guess what? So was this story!Now do I think everyone will love it? No, I do not. It touches some tough topics, some that are deal breakers for sensitive readers. But I think this story has heart and should be tried.Also, if you're coming into this thinking you're getting another Training Season, don't. This book is [...]

      I have so many reviews to write, but I need to get my thoughts out about this one first. I hated this book. There, I said it, and I am not taking it back. (view spoiler)[Zach? SCREW YOU ZACH! Go have your pity party elsewhere. I don't want to hear it. You think you have it so bad, but, you won't even talk to Leith about anything. But, you'll turn to strangers on a vlog? Yeah, not cool. You were so engrossed in your pity party that you missed the fact that LEITH NEEDED YOU and you left him sittin [...]

      Written May 18, 20144 1/2 Stars - a sentimental so incredibly romantic tear-dripping second chance book - hooray what a delight to readThe novel The River Leith is new fresh contemporary M/M romance I just finished my ARC read of. Oh yay, how very happy I was when the writer Leta Blake was so kind and sent me an copy (I nicely asked for) of her new book a week ago. (I bounced around out of luck.) You all know how much I loved her last novel Training Season (5 huge stars from me) (view spoiler)[ [...]

      ***4 Stars***.ry is the sum of us, the total, and if it is divided, then we are lost.I don't even know where to begin with this book. So much emotion, so much anger.flawed characters, frustrating circumstances, unfairness, confusion, sadness, hope, betrayal, name it, it was here and I felt it. The book opens with Leith's frustrations. It's been two weeks since he awoke from his coma. Two weeks since his boxing career basically ended with an illegal blow to the back of the head. Two week [...]

      Another good Leta Blake read. I'm not sure this one was my favorite, but it was definitely good. This is actually my second amnesia read, having read Garrett Leigh's first. This one was done well. I liked how it all played out, for the most part. Didnt care for the(view spoiler)["cheating" element. But I got itrt of. (hide spoiler)]I liked that we got Zach's POV through his vlog. And I've always said I think having your spouse/significant other/etc not remember who you are would be the absolute [...]

      Leta Blake's follow up to her M/M romance fan favorite Training Season is the heartbreaker The River Leith. But the love in this book shines just as strongly as it did in Training Season Leith Wenz wakes up in the hospital after being in a coma for two weeks and realizes he has lost the last three years of his memories. He learns he suffered his coma-inducing injury from a blow to the head in a legal, amateur boxing match. The last thing he remembers about his life is being in prison after being [...]

      Wowjustwow. I cannot even begin to express just how much I loved "The River Leith". I tore through the book in a few hours because it captured me from the first page and did not let me go. This book completely deserves my ever elusive 5 star rating and its home on my "M/M favorites" shelf with it's gut wrenchingly emotional portrayal of Leith and Zach's story.Because of the unusual way that the tale was told (through vlogging, a bit of texting, and just plain ol' good writing) I felt like I was [...]

    10. Chelsea on said:

      Loved it! So I was watching Bourne Identity and suddenly needed to read a book with a main character that has amnesia, this book satisfied that craving to perfection. Leith and Zack have been together for about one year when Leith looses his last 3 years of memory after a boxing accident. Leith doesn't even know he's bisexual when he wakes up from his coma. What I loved was how well both Leith's and Zack's confusion, anger and grief was portrayed. The book is purely from Leith's POV except for Z [...]

      First Read:05/2014Second Read:07/2016This was me at the end of the bookI don't know where to start, I might be one of the few who will read this who won't get mad at the betrayal in the story. I understand, I get it, it was wrong, but the circumstance were there. We start off with Leif Wenz who is a amateur boxer who lands himself in a coma after an illegal blow to the brain, he wakes up with the last 3 years of his life gone, wiped out, obliterated however you want to put it gone! He has retrog [...]

      Shortie Review. Knew this was going on my best of the best shelf after just 15%. Chock full of emotion and feelz, how would I have coped with what Zach had to deal with?? Hopefully, I'll never have to find out. Leta Blake, you're a wonderful writer, and now have your own bookshelf after just three stories. This one was MAGNIFICENT!! 5 stars

    13. Kaje Harper on said:

      I think every romance writer has an amnesia plot bunny somewhere in mind. The results range from excellent to really far-fetched, but this was one of the good ones. Leith Wenz wakes up in hospital, only to discover that he has been in a coma for days following a head injury, and his memory of the last three years is gone. The father he expects to see at his bedside has been dead for some time. And several new people he doesn't recognize at all appear to be close friends, particularly a man named [...]

    14. Vivian on said:

      Likey and no likey.What do we remember and how? My favorite part of this story was how Leith solved the mystery of his own life. Thing that pissed me off about the story--that Leith had to solve the mystery of his own life. WTF?! There were some choices made that set up the trajectory of this story and frankly, I was a little gobsmacked by them. Guy loses set period of time and rather than explaining what he's missing they decide to let him stumble around alone trying to sort it all out. Thanks [...]

    17. Richard on said:

      Understood that a major trauma in someone’s life will also affect their loved ones. In this case it was brain injury sustained during a boxing match which caused partial amnesia.That said-Zach’s narcissistic choice to video blog his life and Zach’s role of the poor pitiful victim which justified Zach to commit adultery because he we was having trouble coping with the amnesia did not make for entertaining readingW- for those not familiar with the story, Zach was not the victim of the brain [...]

      ***4.5 Stars***Sometimes it took divine courage to let go and end up in an ocean of the unknown.Compared to the hectic and stressful times we are living in, three years appear to be nothing. If your memory of three years is completely erased, though, it could change your life forever. Suddenly you realize how important such a short period can be. You have forgotten about events that took place in that time. Your own habits. Your surroundings. People you have met and people you have lost. The per [...]

      4.5 starsThe Author wrote " I’d like to apologize for the oversimplification of amnesia and brain trauma. I did a lot of research into both, but in the end decided that the purpose of this story was to have fun exploring the well-worn romance cliché of amnesia and the romance of falling in love all over again. For that reason I downplayed the reality of the medical side of things, and I hope you’re able to suspend disbelief to enjoy the story." Let me tell you Miss Blake that this story for [...]

    20. Duck on said:

      I'm not going to rate this, because it would not be fair to the author. This book is not badly written. No instalove, no serious editing issues. I just call BULLSH!T on the story. If you are in a relationship with a person (i.e. you live together, you confirm that you are in love, and you are NOT in an agreed open relationship) and you have sex with someone else - that's CHEATING. Extenuating circumstances can't change that.Candice wrote a review that pretty much summed up my feelings after read [...]

    21. Isabel on said:

      I wonder how it would be if I had the memory of my last three years "erased" When Leith wakes up from a traumatic accident, he realizes that he doesn't have any memory of his last three years, he has a void instead.The fabulous thing is that his heart and his soul still remembers what is head don't, the love of his life: Zach! Their love is so beautiful, so strong, that even after such a trauma, he won't die. Leith falls in love with Zach again and again, and it's a wonderful thing to watch!

    22. ☆ Todd on said:

      Loved Leith, but Zach made me a wee bit crazy at times.Definitely worth a read. : )

    23. Keira Andrews on said:

      Amnesia is one of my very favourite tropes, and Leta Blake knocks it out of the park here with delicious angst and drama. Leith and Zach's struggle to come to terms with the new reality where Leith can't remember knowing Zach at all -- let alone being madly in love with him -- is gripping. My heart broke for both the characters and I rooted hard for their happy ending. The book is told from Leith's POV, but Blake uses vlog transcripts as a clever device to give us insight into Zach's perspective [...]

      Reread of one from my all-time-greats shelf! This is my favorite by Ms. Blake. She takes the amnesia trope and completely twists it into something new and fresh. I was on the edge of my seat (again!) the entire time. Leith and Zach are such an amazing couple. A couple things to address for my fellow readers:1. Does Leith get his memory back? It's one of the things I loved about this book. (view spoiler)[No, he doesn't. (hide spoiler)]2. I've seen a couple reviews talk about possible cheating. Le [...]

      Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for the review copy of this book.Imagine waking up in a hospital bed from a two week coma and finding out the last memory you have is of something that happened three years ago. You don't remember your friends, or that your father is dead, or that you have a lover, or that you're bisexual. And it isn't just that not remembering affects you, but everyone you know; or at least did know before you landed in the hospital.Most of this story is told from Leith's [...]

      4.5 StarsOMG, this was both heart-breaking AND wonderfully hopefully romantic. I love the way the amnesia trope was handled, even though it alternately frustrated me & gave me an angsty-belly. Such a good story

    28. Ariana on said:

      This was the first book I read dealing with amnesia and the effect it can have on people and their lives. Leta Blake acknowledges at the end that she took some artistic license with the medical facts for the sake of the story. I have to say, I didn't mind - at all! I loved the whole package:.) Leith - what a genuine, honest guy. I can hardly imagine what it would feel like to lose 3 years. Considering how young he is, three years is a huge chunk out of his life, and it is no wonder he freaks out [...]

      Gah, it was so so cute and sad at the same timeEspecially the first half. Leith is a boxer, who in the match of his life gets a hard blow in the head. Brain trauma caused retrograde amnesia so Leith doesn't remember anything that was happening past three yearscluding meeting Zach, the love of his life.Seriously, I don't even like amnesia trope, but I was really charmed by this story. Ok, to be more precise, I was charmed by Leith's voice.He is absolutely adorable and that's why reading his confu [...]

      This review appeared on Queer Town Abbey at queertownabbey/the-river-lThe River Leith is an emotional story as Leith and Zach are thrust into the painful position of having to deal with a brain injury suffered by Leith. The impact of Leith’s amnesia is heartbreaking to witness, from the struggle Leith experiences to the impact it has on his lover.“Time was like a river, and memory was a current. Time flowed on without ceasing, no matter what or who tried to get into its way. But memory was c [...]
