When there’s no way to prepare for love, will they be daring enough to earn it?
When a cute guy literally fell out of the sky and into my world, I couldn’t resist the challenging glint in his eyes. Gavin was the opposite of the kind of man I thought I was looking for, but maybe there was something more to him than just a daredevil who worked for a rock star.
Opposites are things that shouldn’t work, but sometimes do. These two men couldn’t be more different. One’s a daredevil, one’s risk-averse. One’s a ball of sunshine, and one’s a bit uptight. But...what if they do have some things in common? As they get to know each other, they discover that, underneath the surface, there are things that connect them, and allow them to deepen the connection.
Despite trying to go on with life, after meeting, these gentlemen can’t stop thinking about the o ...more
First, I absolutely loved Gavin and his recklessness. I mean the character portrayal of him was in such a way, that it made me want to try some of the things he did. And Elliot was such a sweetheart with so muc ...more
The characters are likeable but again I didn't fully connect with them and I'm not really sure why.
I did read an ARC and believe it was a final proof copy but there was a few errors still throughout the book. They didn't detract from.tje story at all.
I read this as a standalone not having read book ...more

Ex-Daredevil follows Ex-Bandmates in the Local Beats series, but works fine on its own. The book opens with Gavin and Eliott meeting in an unexpected way and the attraction is heated from the start. Even though Eliott isn’t one for random hookups, he can’t say no to the most beautiful man he has ever seen. Gavin then leaves abruptly, maybe a little too abruptly, but his thoughts on the initial meeting do get worked into the story.
The guys are opposites with Eliott b ...more
Eliott likes to be in control of himself and his environment. Having a skydiver almost land on his car, more than shakes him up. He can be uptight, but he is a good kind caring person.
Gavin can come off as uncaring about the r ...more
When Eliot had started his drive home from his sister's he'd not imagined for one minute nearly having a skydiver crash land on his car! It was a near miss and Eliot was relieved the person managed to land safely on land next to the road. He pulled over to the side of the road and went over to the person, he wasn't in the best of moods as it was after having to spend all his time at his sister's birthday party stopping them arguing with each other!
He thought at fi ...more
I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I had a hard time connecting to Elliott and Gavin. I just didn't quite like like either of them from the start and the story didn't flow like I would've liked. It felt... forced, maybe? *shrugs* I don't know, I can't really put my finger on it.
The story had all the elements that should have made it a great read for me. Opposites-attract, instant attraction, hot sexytimes... unfortunately, as I said before, the fact that I didn't like either ...more
Elliott brings the best out of Gavin. After an instant hookup right after Gavin nearly crashed into Elliott's car, the times they come together just makes it more sweeter and more ...more
An enjoyable opposites-attract romance from a new-to-me author. I loved watching prickly straight-laced Elliott and flashy daredevil Gavin learn to open up and trust each other, in spite of their differences. And the secondary characters were a blast - I plan on keeping an eye out for their stories.
But I just couldn’t connect with Elliott and Gavin for the first half of the book. Their banter was fun, and the boring date/daring date setup was a great idea, but the writing style tended t ...more
This was aan adorable and fluffy opposites attract.
Gavin and Elliott are poles apart in their personality. One is grumpy and straight laced and theoyher is an ecstatic ball of sunshine and sweetness.
This story swept me up and I absolutely adored reading to Gavin and Elliott getting along.
The slow build towards their relationship was delightful and enjoyable.
If you like a sweet low angst contemporary grumpy versus sunshine, ...more
Adrenaline junkie, Gavin meets conventional Elliot in the most ridiculous of ways; and it sets the tone for the book.
I struggled with the start of the book, after the first chapter, it was a bit more slow-going for me than the first in the series. HOWEVER, as the book went on, and picked up speed towards the sweet ending, I was glad I pushed through.
Their connection and chemistry is off the charts. I really enjoyed the banter between these two.
