BLURB: What would make you reach outside your comfort zone?
Aron Roberts helped his previous love discover a new one, so now he’s on his own, living only for his work and the times he manages to escape into the sky. He meets Joe Welsh again—a man he met at the roadside a year ago, a man who became an out-of-reach figure in his fantasies. Aron discovers Joe’s life has undergone major changes since their last meeting. The spark of attraction ignites into flames only to be put out by uncomfortable truths.
Can Aron overcome his fears and step out of his comfort zone to find love? Can Joe help Aron to deal with his past and trust him enough to allow Aron into his life?
With the help of family and friends, and a very determined one-year-old girl, Aron and Joe have a journey to make and obstacles to overcome, if they are ever going to get their happy ever after.
Publisher’s Note: This book is linked to Sporting Chance but can be read as a standalone novel.
I must admit that I only know Alexa from the Fanfic World, knew that she was venturing into the novel market but until now, never actually read one of her full length books, so I was really looking forward to seeing the difference, if any?
Life’s realities is not all a bed of roses, it can be tough and often cruel. Sometimes it’s hard to decide how to go forward? human emotions and prejudice can rear its ugly head and you get scared and essentially this is what this book is about. The blurb does cover the storyline well, so I won’t repeat and ruin with any added spoilers.
You can immediately tell that the author is a Brit, her observations and descriptions were spot on and being a Brit myself, I found this most welcoming. An added bonus for me also was the way the author wrote her secondary characters, they all added depth to the story and I genuinely liked them.
So why only 4*? There was a particular incident that happened early on in the book, one that I didn’t particularly care for. It came out of nowhere, certainly wasn’t expecting it and I’m at a loss as to why the author choose to write it in such a way. Now I feel duty bound to point out that the more I read and saw how she developed the story, I started to see (a bit) where she was coming from and why she wrote that scene the way she did but for me,it came a bit too late and therefore it wasn’t enough to elevate it to 5*, which is a great shame as it was a good sexy read, that got better and better the more I read.
Will I read more from this author? Most definitely.
