Book Release & Review: 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


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!

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

When Jane emailed me a few weeks ago for a promo piece for this books release she also offered up the chance to review it for her. Included in the email was the blurb. I didn't read it. I saw Jane's offer and internally jumped up and down at having another of her books to read. Sometime after reading How to win a guy in 10 dates (her first novel, but the 2nd of her books that I read) Jane Linfoot has become one of my favourite authors whose books NEED to be read. No blurb needed. 

As I discovered in previous books, Linfoot has a way of drawing the reader into the story from the very beginning that feels effortless for us the reader but takes an incredible amount of talent to do. You simply fall into the book and get taken along for the ride (pun intended). I loved the chemistry between Jackson and Bryony, even from their first meeting you could almost feel the heat coming off the pages (or in my case the kindle) I even joked that my kindle had steamed up and was in danger of melting. When they got together it became explosive (in all the good ways). I loved watching them rub each other up the wrong way and the right way ;-)

Linfoot once again hits the mark with her combination of fun, flirty romance, steamy sex, plot and characters that are far from perfect but totally real. If you haven't read any of her books yet then you need to pick them up now. Go, quickly. You'll not regret it.

Author Bio

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.
