Though it was a shorter story, it still had plenty packed in :) I'd not heard of morris dancing before, but it was a great introduction! Sweet, hot story with the characters of Rowan and Seth (and can I just melt over Seth a little more?) who through morris dancing find one another.
Loved the descriptions of the festival, the dance itself and all that surrounded their story.
I'd never heard of morris dancing so when I asked to review Tops Down Bottoms Up I had to look it up; isn't YouTube wonderful? I won't spoil it for you, check it out for yourself.
While this is a short novella it still packs a punch. Jay Northcote's writing is so descriptive that I could see and feel all of the things the characters did. I love it when I get that feeling from a book.
This book held my attention from the beginning. The only problem was that I started it too late at night and had to put it down because my ereader fell out of my hands and woke me up. lol I immediately picked it up again in the morning to finish it.
I could totally relate to Rowan's dismay at finding that Seth had given him a bad number and my heart hurt for him. Thank goodness Rowan and Seth have good friends and that's all I'll say.
I'm looking forward to reading more books by Jay Northcote.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

I found this to be a real nice expansion of Rowan and Seth’s story. While I don’t know if I would say that people who have already read the short version need to go out and buy this extended one, I do think there is enough there to make it worth your while. And for those who haven’t yet got a chance to read this story, I recommend you give it a chance. Morris Dancing may be a bit odd, but the characters are good at making it sound interesting, and I really like books that can make the more odd parts of life worth reading about.
For the most part I found this to be a lighthearted, interesting novella. The Seth and Rowan are super hot together, and Max–Rowan’s best friend–is a funny side character. The story was fun to revisit, and I think if you like this kind of quaint English town type of story you will enjoy this one.
I think we have all at one time or another(okay more than one time) know what its like to experience foot-in-mouth disease so it was pretty easy to sympathize with Rowan. I have to admit I probably would have had the same feelings that he has but I doubt I would have had the same luck he has when he meets Seth. Tops Down Bottoms Up is simply put: fun, enjoyable, and absolutely lovely. That's not to say it is all smooth sailing for the pair but sometimes dumb luck or simple mistakes can lead us on a path that is even better than we imagined. This is a tale where assumptions play a big part and as the saying goes, "when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me".
Having grown up watching British sitcoms and mysteries on our local PBS station and now with digital television, internet live streaming services, DVDs, Blu-Rays, etc, I actually find myself watching more United Kingdom produced television than American. As proud as I am to be an American, I find that 98% of what we put on television is . . . well lets just leave it at I prefer the material the UK provide. Anywho, the reason I put that out there was because I knew what Morris dancing was, I may not know all the traditions and history behind it but I knew what to expect and Jay presents it wonderfully. However, I realize that many might not and that's okay, you don't need to know before reading Tops Down, it will be a new experience for you and I think you will enjoy the discovery and who knows maybe you will learn to love it too.
Having said all that about the Morris dancers, I can safely and honestly say that they are the reason Tops Down got the full 5 bookmark rating from me. I love the story, loved Rowan and Seth, especially loved how Rowan discovers that sometimes foot-in-mouth disease can actually lead to amazing goodness. But I rarely find a novella that I love enough to not knock off at least 1/2 a bookmark just because I wasn't ready for the story to end and wanted more. However, the Morris dancing scenes put such a huge smile on my face that I just could not justify not giving the full 5 bookmarks.
