High Heels and Bicycle Wheels by Jane Linfoot

High Heels & Bicycle Wheels by Jane Linfoot

Published by Harper Impulse, ebook release date 17th July, pod paperback 27th September

What They Say:

High Heels & Bicycle Wheels

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 racing 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, 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 look out 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 camper van 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!

What I Say:
I would like to thank author Jane Linfoot for sending me a copy of this in exchange for a fair and honest review.
When Jane sent me a copy of the cover for this I was a little disappointed that it didn’t have the trade mark high heels on it, only to discover, the high heels are there but slightly hidden because of the bicycle, having said that, now I have read the book I think the cover is perfect.

How can this book not be great with a steamy line of

‘Hot naked tush alert’

This is on the first page!!!!  Hooked yet?  I was, I couldn’t wait to start reading…

We are back with a familiar character in the form of Bryony (some may remember she is Brando’s sister in The Right Side of Mr Wrong), I can see now why Jane said Bryony had her own story to be told, I love Bryony she is strong willed and used to getting her own way by using whatever means necessary, that is until she meets Jackson.

Jackson is the hot bad boy of cycling (there’s not enough bad boys out there anymore) with a hot body,how could we not like him right?

Jane’s characters are all strong characters but with a vulnerable side, as we get to know each character, we get to know their good points as well as their weaknesses.

I love the flirting between Bryony and Jackson, even when each of them try to deny that they like each other, the chemistry literally sizzles off the page, Jane also writes some pretty steamy sex scenes, all this contributes to a wonderful story with brilliant characters.

We get to meet Brando again, a couple of new characters in Cressy who works with Bryony and Dan, Jacksons manager and friend.  I hope we get to see more of these characters in other books especially Cressy.

Hot, steamy fun from the lovely Jane, oh and I forgot to mention the tandem, beautiful destinations in the South of England (not forgetting Scarborough) the camper van and what you can get up to in a camper van!  Check it out for yourself!

About The Author:

I’m Jane Linfoot, and I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge.

I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos – happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. For me, writing romance is cool because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. 

When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.
