About the Author
I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. Writing romance is cool, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos. Happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. 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.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

The chemistry between her and Jackson was there instantly from the moment they met, which is hardly surprising considering how they actually meet, and it doesn’t let up for the duration. Thrown together for a large chunk of the book, the pair flirt shamelessly as they take in some fabulous sights and sounds from the south of the country, all described perfectly by the author, and set out to manage each other’s reactions, in order to gain the upper hand. It’s comical in a way, as both take a long time to see what’s right there in front of them but a few things get in the way, one of them being a whopper of a turn in the story, and it all looks set to end in tears.
The realisation that just because things change, doesn’t mean you don’t get what you need to be happy is the core of this fab story. Jane Linfoot keeps the reader on their toes – swinging from hot, steamy scenes one minute to frigid cold shoulders the next – with a book that’s should be on all romance reader’s wish list.
review by Charlotte Foreman on behalf of Bestchicklit.com
Jackson Gale is in recovery: not just the physical, but a major overhauling of his ‘bad boy’ reputation among the journalists and public. A simple tandem bike race for charity is the first step in this repair of his public image. Meant to be a simple ride, he is first faced with the inability of a known presenter as his second, and then faced with the reality that is Byrony, stuffed into a racing kit that is stretching the lycra to extremes, a tall expanse of bright pink wrapper on a woman who totally knocks his socks off.
As a couple, these two are sniping and snarking at one another constantly, but the electric charge is palpable, and Byrony loosens her iron-fisted control to have one night with Jackson. He’s safe, there is no chance of a connection, and she mistakenly believes that staying out of the bedroom will keep their connection casual.
From the first page to the last, Linfoot draws you into the world she is creating: you know these characters (or their types) and you can understand their issues, even as you laugh when things go amiss. With a knack for presenting characters that are all too human and giving them moments of doubt, fear, passion and outright ridiculous scenes where you can do little but laugh, her stories are great getaway reads – perfect for when you want to escape and be taken for a ride. The connections are believable and secondary characters provide interesting counterpoints to push the main couple to their AHA moment, even when they are both fighting through their own baggage to get there. From flirty to knock your socks off steamy moments, the story never disappoints and develops with readers able to follow and cheer on the relationship.
I received an eArc copy of the title for purpose of honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
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!!!

This book is the explosion of emotions that occurs when two slightly screwed up control freaks, used to their successful winning ways always getting them what they wanted, find themselves flailing in unknown territory when their paths collide. However it is so much more than just a hot romance as the author analyses their underlying emotional issues just as well as she describes the raw lust and passion that draws them to each other. There is plenty of humour too.
When they both experience life changing events, they realise things must change and that their tried and tested winning ways aren’t as perfect as they thought after all. But will listening to other people’s points of view really help?
I couldn’t put this book down despite their dithering and the ‘will they/won’t they’ moments almost driving me mad.
I now want to read more from Jane Linfoot and luckily for me (and my love of books set in France) her novel ‘How to Win a Guy in Ten Dates’ is partially set in Provence.
I gave it 3 stars, because although it wasnt a favourite, the idea of the story was good, and I did finish it, I have only stopped reading a couple of books after the first chapter, but this one was completed. The heroine was alot more human than most other authors make the female lead, she wasnt a hard nosed woman as such, or a wilting flower that needed rescuing, she was independant, firm in her beliefs, but not over the top that you took an instant disliking to her. The hero, was your typical, fit muscly kind. But this always seems to work.
