A spin of the wheel can change everything...

Mike had it all. A business in the south of France, money, and a handsome boyfriend. But when the world’s economies nose-dived, he lost the lot—including Kurt. With nothing left, he finds himself back home in the north of England, living in a broken-down rented flat, alone.

When the boiler breaks down, the repairman turns out to b

What I liked most about this story is that it felt very real, and even though at times it got slow-paced it just seemed to fit because thats what you do when youv been broken. The next time you're cautious and take things slower. That and a happy ending with an "awww" moment made this story for me.

Reviewed by Jamie: This book was a surprise, mostly because (I admit) I judged from the cover, expecting some sort of James Bond style, gambling romp. What I got was something completely different.

The cover, I'm sorry to say, is very lame, and doesn't reflect this story at all. More than half the story is set in rain drizzled Yorkshire, England! And it focuses on the characters' range of emotions.

This story wasn't my sort of thing, so I'll be rating it as objectively as possible. It is well writ

Tristram La Roche should be getting quite a cult behind him now with his third book in as many months (don't quote me) and another on the way. One of the aspects of his stories that I enjoy is that he takes his readers on journeys to wonderful places. London, Italy and now France and Monte Carlo - and the casino! His main characters are never the hunky beefcakes seen in the more run-of-the-mill novels in this genre. On the contrary, Tristram's are full of angst, insecurities, fidgety hands and e ...more

This isn’t my first book by Tristram La Roche. The last one swept me into a world I never imagined and I loved it. This time, not so much. The plot was mostly about the romance which is normally a plot I love. I like a good chocolate read now and again, however to pull this plot off the character connection has to be truly believable, you’ve got to make the reader feel the emotion between the characters. Which I felt got left behind. I loved the
characters by themselves. Pete is this down on his

This isn’t my first book by Tristram La Roche. The last one swept me into a world I never imagined and I loved it. This time, not so much. The plot was mostly about the romance which is normally a plot I love.

Then there was this truly awful sex scene involving a truck rest stop with too much details about urination on the floor. I think I threw up a little in my mouth just writing that. I wanted to like this book because I truly enjoy the way

Nice slow-paced story about Mike who has lost everything since his long-term partner left him, and Pete an old acquaintance who lends him a helping hand.

This short story has a ring of truth to it. Mike is so down, missing his lover and unable to believe the depths he's sunk to. I could really sympathise with him in the beginning, his reluctance to get involved and always keeping Pete at a distance. But about 2/3 through the book I started getting impatient with him and wanting him to give someth

2.5 stars. Ok m/m romance about a guy who'd been living in the south of France with his boyfriend until the economy went bad and he lost everything - home, business, money, and boyfriend. He moves back to Yorkshire in reduced circumstances and isn't particularly pleased to run into a guy he recognizes from his school days...

I couldn't finish this book. One of the main characters kept whining about his change in fortune, for the worse. One of those people who are forever complaining and not doing much to change their lot in life. It dragged on for too long (for a short book), with very little happening, some highly unsafe dirty sex scenes thrown in, about the only time the character shut up giving out!

"You chose me? Little old me?”
I usually like a little more romance in my stories, but this book seems so real. You come to realize just how much these two care about each other by the end. I enjoyed getting to know them and watching Mike let himself be happy.
