Review of High Heels And Bicycle Wheels by Jane Linfoot

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 a certain race 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, has 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 lookout 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 campervan, with a woman who irons her knickers?


Thank you to Jane for kindly asking me to review her new book. I’ve always said that Jane doesn’t get the recognition she truly deserves. If you have a Kindle, treat yourself to her three books. You won’t regret it, I promise.

The hot naked tush alert… Well, if that opening doesn’t get your attention then I don’t know what will. I was immediately drawn into the narrative hoping that this tush belonged to a beautiful, sexy man and BINGO, it does. Bryony (not the owner of the tush) is a strong, independent woman who is a production assistant in the wonderful world of TV. I had a little sense of déjà vu while I read about Bryony. I constantly thought that I had already read her story in one of Jane’s other books. Soon enough, we learn that the tush belongs to sexy cyclist Jackson. Ding dong. Jane certainly knows how to write chemistry.

Throughout the plot, their spark grew and grew. I was begging for them to get together and Jane takes us on a complete roller coaster of a love journey. She’s hit the nail on the head with this one. It’s a fabulous girly read which can happily be read in an afternoon, just like I did.
