Finding love can be a bumpy ride. His job: downsized out of existence. His marriage: on the rocks. It doesn’t take a lot of arm twisting for Tim Knight to agree to get out of London and take over his injured brother’s mountain bike shop for a while. A few weeks in Southampton is a welcome break from the wreck his life has become, even though he feels like a fish out of water in this brave new world of outdoor sports and unfamiliar technical jargon. The young man who falls—literally—through the door of the shop brings everything into sharp, unexpected focus. Tim barely accepts he’s even in the closet until his attraction to Matt Berridge pulls him close enough to touch the doorknob. There’s only one problem with the loveable klutz: his bullying boyfriend. Tim is convinced Steve is the cause of the bruises that Matt blows off as part of his risky sport. But rising to the defense of the man he’s beginning to love means coming to terms with who he is—in public—in a battle not even his black belt prepared him to fight. Until now. Warning: Contains an out-and-proud klutz, a closeted, karate-loving accountant—and a cat who thinks it’s all about him. Watch for a cameo appearance from the Pricks and Pragmatism lovers. May inspire yearnings for fresh air, exercise, and a fit, tanned bike mechanic of your very own.

Started ok, Tim was cute-ish, and deeply in the closet. Then, out of nowhere comes this moment with Adam (someone Tim made fun of in his mind), and they hook up in this pub! Kisses, BJ and HJ, just like that. And Tim was going to lose his butt virginity without a proper conversation, no feelings... ...

I really enjoyed this one. It was fun. Matt was so endearing, you couldn't help but like him. Sweet guy. His jackass boyfriend ticked me off. Tim was a bit nuts. And the cat! What a great secondary character. I loved Wolverine! And when he attacked Adam...I was cheering, ha! This was fun and unexpec...

It is a very slow paced romance about a guy's coming out at the age of 28 after a failed marriage. I h...
