Book Description

After years of hard work, Rachel Ryder is in the best shape of her life and a favourite to win the National Mountain Championships. So the last thing she needs is a broken arm and a distracting encounter with a beautiful doctor. Matters become even more confusing when Rachel’s treacherous ex-girlfriend arrives on the scene, determined to stop at nothing to win her back.

With the race fast approaching and her heart in a storm, Rachel is forced to choose between the woman she lost, the woman she has found and her opportunity to realise the ambition of a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars A line well crossed March 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not much I can say about this book after Charlie's review, which was spot on!! I might add, however, that I did get to the point that I wanted to strangle both Rachel and Ali for their total lack of communication that rendered this reader incredulous as to their stupidity at times! Other than that, I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read! April 19, 2012
By risky
Format:Kindle Edition
Lesbian Fiction is not my usual taste in books, however being a runner I was interested to come across this book and I am so glad I did.The book is fab even for non runners it keeps you gripped with the trials and tribulations of the main characters. So much so I had to limit myself to 4 pages a night as I didnt want to finish it. Definitely a book that makes you giggle and cringe at the same time with all the goings on. Dont take my word for it have a read and you wont be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty decent read June 11, 2012
By Mia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The punctuation was a bit rough. I have never in my life seen so many ellipses. It was seriously overkill. But all in all It was a pretty good romance about trying to balance work, hobbies, a new love, and the ex that won't quit.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was almost good... June 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although it did keep my interest, as the story progressed I found that I was more and more annoyed by the characters. How is it that two educated, intelligent, professional women are completely unable to communicate effectively? How can the main character contemplate an issue between her and her potential love interest for several days, then not bother to bring it up the next time they meet? The games they played with each other were juvenile and aggravating. While I'm not a runner, I did enjoy that aspect of the story. It was well written and allowed me to truly understand what goes through a persons mind while competing in this manner. However, the romance fizzled. I expected not just better behavior, but better communication from such accomplished women.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sporty romance May 1, 2012
By Telstar
Format:Kindle Edition
Runner Rachel Ryder's intense training has paid off. She's never been in better shape and she's one of the favorites to win the British Mountain Championships. Except that now she's had an accident and broken her arm. The accident in turn is the cause of a great distraction. She meets a beautiful and alluring doctor, Alison.

Rachel and Ali both feel an immediate attraction between them. But both women have been badly hurt in the past. Plus, Ali can't ethically date a patient. Rachel can't afford to focus on anything other than her running either. She has a race to win and a broken arm or an attractive doctor can't be allowed to interfere. So, starting anything with Ali is out of the question. The two women agree to be friends, which proves very hard and a cat and mouse game begins.

Unfortunately right at this time, Rachel's conniving, cheating ex girlfriend, Helen, returns to the scene. She wants Rachel back and will stop at nothing to get her own way.

What will Rachel do? Will she relent and choose Helen? Will she choose Ali? Or will she push aside both women and pour all her energies in to winning her race?

This book is a page turner from the first page right through to the last page. There are so many twists and turns along the way, it's like being on a roller coaster.

The actual story is three stories rolled into one. First we read about Rachel and her racing. Although I'm not a sports fan, I really enjoyed all the excitement and thrill of the race. I found myself cheering Rachel on and shared in her triumphs and disappointments. Second we have the up and down, on and off romance. Which is both frustrating and humorous in parts. Last but by no means least, there is Rachel's work environment and her friendship with her work colleague, Mel.

The plot seemed like it would be interesting. However, I found several grammatical errors and the use of some words far too often. It didn't flow and I lost interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Day dreaming June 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book took me by surprise. It combined beautifully together two passions of mine, running and women in sports. Very well written and realistically set, both the training part and the lesbian drama.
I day dreamed, while not reading this book, wishing back then in my competitive years I could experience something similar to what James has intimately written about sports and falling in love in such a context.
Well done!
