“You’re the sleek little sports car to my Land Rover.”
From the moment Gareth walks through the door of the salon to fit some new sinks, Jules can’t take his eyes off him. Jules has always been attracted to men who are his polar opposite, so burly Gareth is Jules’s fantasy man. At the weekend, Jules gets into a tough situation with another bloke in a gay club and Gareth comes to his aid. Gareth rejects Jules’s subsequent advances but leaves him with the hope that his attraction isn’t completely one-sided. Fantasy could become reality. With Gareth’s work at the salon nearly done, he’ll soon disappear from Jules’s life for good. Time is running out. Jules needs to prove to Gareth that he’s tougher than he looks and that his feelings run deeper than gratitude.
Length: 13,000 words
NB: This story is a spin to from Top Me Maybe? where Jules appears as a minor character. Both stories are standalones and don’t need to be read in order.

Jules was that interesting femme character in Top Me Maybe? and that cover? You see that cute little guy there with the interesting eyebrows and heat-filled eyes? Oh my, that is definitely our Jules.
This read was quite interesting and impossible to put down. Eventually, the pages hit 100% and the fuming need began. I have a personal request for Ms Northcote: please please please please! I need more Jules!!!
From the time Jules opened his mouth in the first book to the last page where he finds his hair all tousled up (no spoilers, you have to read why his hair was all messy!), I didn't want him to stay quiet. Of course, his thoughts and insights were a bonus for me from the way he observed his love interest, Gareth, to the way his nimble fingers combed through the hairy beary chest of the man, oh dear. Talk about mental images that refused to go away!
This is the best short light read story I have read in ages. Like, AGES!
|My Rating: (4 of 4 Stars) 5|
Based on Short&Light Read Category but with a plus! This was simply awesome :D
As for the author's note where she says don't need to read first book? Don't listen to that advise. Get the first and enjoy more of Jules...
Now, how do I rate a short&light read category with more than a 4????
Serious problem but here is my solution:
