Leroy Madden is in trouble. Big, handsome, Fox Carmody trouble. 

Leroy has buried his attraction to the enigmatic fisherman in irritation and pointless bickering, keeping Fox at a safe distance. But with the troublesome man now living in Leroy’s house, it’s becoming impossible for Leroy to keep his true feelings hidden, or the fact that Leroy maybe isn’t so straight, after all. 

Leroy hungers for something different between them. He wants more. But Leroy’s business is struggling, his newly mended relationship with his brother is at risk, Fox doesn’t plan to stay, and their mothers are lovers.  

Regardless of what Leroy’s heart so desperately wants, his entire world is at stake, and nothing about a relationship with Fox Carmody was ever going to be easy.


The much loved first book in this series, Off Balance, won the NZ Romance Writers 2021 Romance Book of the Year Award.

This highly acclaimed 3-book series is set in the tiny fictional seaside town of Painted Bay, Northland, New Zealand. It centres around the Madden family and their friends and carries all the hallmarks you’d expect of small-town romances but with a New Zealand twist. You’ll
meet mussel farmers, fishermen and fishery officers, international ballet stars, choreographers
and tango lovers. The stories deal with medical issues, living with disabilities, hurt/comfort, redemption, family reconnection, and found family.

Oh, this book! Talk about a redemption ark…

If you read Off Board you have come to know Leroy as this grumpy, apparently homophobic, a**hole-y loner who talks in grunts and jabs… And to an extent, that’s really who he is, at least in part, or on the surface, or at least who he wants to present as. But that’s not all there is to him, at all. As the story enfolds we come to know him a lot better (mainly through Fox, who somehow seems to cut through all Leroy’s barriers and defensive walls, and see the real HIM behind) and we find a complicated man with soft spots and a vulnerable heart.
I cannot deny I spent the first part of the book uncertain if I wanted to throttle him or hug him and tell him that everything was going to be OK… but in the end I just loved him!
I adore Jay Hogan’s ability to transport us in the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand, so much so that as you read her books you can absolutely picture the scenery the MCs are seeing in that moment. For this story the ocean is the absolute standout (it’s almost like a third MC) as both Fox and Leroy love being out at sea so much.

That first kiss gets me everytime!

Such a great book. And the main characters were amazing. So much love for this one.

And the first kiss...probably the best one I've read!
