High Heels and Bicycle Wheels - by Jane Linfoot

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Meet Bryony: she’s a fun-loving, very single TV production assistant whose idea of sport is the Jimmy Choo sales scrum.

Meet Jackson: Cycling’s bad boy superstar. Injured and out of a certain race this summer, without his training, he’s looking for another distraction…

Bryony’s facing a triple whammy – her last single friend just named the day, her mother’s offering to have her eggs frozen, and the guy she’s loved from afar, forever, has just got hitched. So she’s more than happy to accept the offer of a totally out of character but seriously steamy one night of no-strings fun. Especially when the guy in question is so attractive he even looks good in Lycra!

Jackson’s on the lookout for a new career but if the opportunity to work on TV means a fortnight with the most uptight woman in the world, he’d rather not bother. He never goes in for seconds – and who in their right mind would head off in a campervan, with a woman who irons her knickers?

Add in a tandem (yes a tandem) and fast forward to double trouble for a summer neither of them will ever forget!

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Let me just tell you this first: It’s Jane Linfoot at her best!!! A sexy, enjoyable and very entertaining read!

It was great to read about Bryony again. We already know her from The Right Side of Mister Wrong and I was so happy she got her own story now. Moreover, I really enjoyed reading about Brando and Shae again.

Bryony had to learn to be independent really early and she has difficulties with trust. Her dad left and also her brother left for college. This is all still in her head and for her it’s clear not to go into a serious relationship. Bryony is strong, stubborn and she knows what she wants, or at least she knew it until Jackson Gale came into the picture.

Jackson Gale is a famous and very very sexy cyclist. The sexual tension between them was up from the start. This story is full of great flirtatious and funny scenes. A great mixture of hot scenes and a real chick-lit novel. Jane’s writing is bubbly, entertaining and very sexy.
Jackson is very arrogant and full of himself, but I loved the way he changed through out the novel and became such a caring and loving man, and all this just because of love.
As for Bryony, I got really annoyed with her at one point, just because she couldn’t see the truth and was really fighting her feelings. We were left in the dark until the end!!!

Reading the story from both perspectives made me understand them both better and they both had their own story to tell and figure out next to their relationship.

An entertaining, light-hearted and funny story, with a lot of chemistry. Yay to Jane Linfoot!!!

And I might add that the title is genius!!!


My possible cast:

Bryony: Hilary Burton

Jackson: Garrett Neff
