The romance between Christopher and Luca developed at a nice pace, and in a fully plausible way. I love how Christopher's writing became a key plot element. The fact that Luca strongly felt he had to remain closeted was completely reasonable (like it or not) given his status in the sport of cycling and that he believed he would lose everything (respect in the sport, family, endorsements) should it be revealed that he was gay. Christopher knew all this going into the relationship and never made demands. Watching the two of them navigate some extremely rough times in the spotlight of the cycling tour without being able to be emotionally open with each other in public was heart wrenching. I really, really cared about these two guys making it to a happy ending. The journey that takes them there is a completely remarkable read.
Highly recommended and.. I would love to read more about Christopher and Luca ;-)
And, in fact, her writing is nearly perfect for that. She balances more components than other writers do: a limited number of relatively hot sex scenes, a lot about relationships, deep and charming characters, a fast-driving plot and, most unusually, an incredible amount of expertise in whatever theme underlies the book, whether it be hedge funds or the pro cycling tour.
There are just no hiccups. I read, start to finish, with pleasure and expectation. And I'm never disappointed.
I'll let others deal with the plot - it's pretty simple: neophyte cycling reporter meets and falls for up-and-coming top-of-the-heap young Italian cyclist. Their tribulations revolve around loss (for each of them) and the constant threat to Luca's career if he steps out of the closet. In the end, he doesn't come out publicly, but he's out enough, and their relationship will inevitably be known as the couple shares a home in both Boulder, Colorado and Italy.
If you're looking for a great read, somewhat sexy, engaging and filled with skin-tight spandex, don't miss this book!
Before this my knowledge of pro-cycling amounted to Tour de France but I wanted to know more, see what these courses were like etc.. All because I fell in love with our two protagonists.
We get angst, hurt-comfort, courage, loyalty, coming out, tears and laughter. Well worth the read.
