From the second I finished Training Season, I knew Leta Blake would be a solid favorite, and THE RIVER LEITH does not disappoint. Okay so, amnesia might be one of my favorite tropes ever, but she writes it so refreshingly beautiful I just felt like clutching my Kindle to my bosoms the whole way through.
Not only is the prose amazing, the fallout of forgetting three years of his life is realistic for Leith and everyone around him. This includes Zach, the boyfriend he can't remember. This story will pull at your heart strings, will make you sweat (because the sex is hotter than the balls of Hades--another area where Leta Blake never disappoints), and will have you put that Kindle down with a happy sigh at the end of it. You don't want to miss out on this one. Highly recommended. ~ Solange [May 2014]

About This Book
Memory is everything.
After an injury in the ring, amateur boxer Leith Wenz wakes to discover his most recent memories are three years out of date. Unmoored and struggling to face his new reality, Leith must cope anew with painful revelations about his family. His brother is there to support him, but it’s the unfamiliar face of Zach, a man introduced as his best friend, that provides the calm he craves. Until Zach’s presence begins to stir up feelings Leith can’t explain.
For Zach, being forgotten by his lover is excruciating. He carefully hides the truth from Leith to protect them both from additional pain. His bottled-up turmoil finds release through vlogging, where he confesses his fears and grief to the faceless Internet. But after Leith begins to open up to him, Zach's choices may come back to haunt him.
Ultimately, Leith must ask his heart the questions memory can no longer answer.
