    4 Running StarsI must say I uite enjoyed this one I don't always like the whole I don't do relationships and let's keep it casual premise but this one worked for me A drunken night leads to Aiden agreeing to run the Mud Mucker Sounds pretty hot right?Yes yes it does Aiden's out of shape though so he starts training with Matt Matt is bi and not out But with all the running and getting hot and sweaty Matt and Aiden start flirting and one thing leads to another Now their workouts have happy endings But they are both adamant about keeping it casual Matt isn't ready to come out and Aiden doesn't want a relationship Which does that ever work out? Despite the premise this one was pretty low drama which was fine with me The sex was hot and I enjoyed the back and forth banter between Matt and Aiden Two Thumbs Up

    One night Aiden drinks a little too much and he's manipulated by his co worker and friend Liv to run the Mud Mucker Matt is Liv’s cousin He moved recently from Australia and works at a private health club To say that Matt is in an excellent shape will be an understatement but Aiden is out of shape hating running on anything other than a treadmill When Liv suggests that Aiden and Matt train together for the big event and both accept Aiden is gay out and proud and he’s attracted to Matt from the beginning At first he thinks Matt is straight but soon he finds out that hie training partner is bi but not out He only has relationships with women hooking up occasionally with men Soon after they start training they hook up agreeing to have a casual relationship Aiden is than happy to have a training partner with benefits type of thing especially since he doesn’t do relationships What was supposed to be a casual thing obviously becomes Aiden starts to want Matt too much and soon he falls for him Aiden can say for sure Matt feels something than friendship for him so things are changing slowly between them Both of them realize that but is Matt ready to be out in order to be with Aiden?I really liked this one It was easy to read light sexy and with an interesting plotLoved Aiden and Matt's chemistry and the sex scenes were pretty hot The banter between them was fantastic and I enjoyed how their relationship progressed I loved both of them Aiden was great I liked that he’s not a drama ueen when he figured out that he’s falling for his training partner Matt was a little frustrating yes but I totally understood him I also liked the fact they communicated with each other and how they shared their fears The angst is low and there’s no stupid drama which I really liked Overall a good read

    DNF at 3 % Bloody hell it should be illegal to be that attractiveI don’t want to read about another perfect specimen who – let me make some guesses from here – will change our flimsy main character’s life and attitude and they are going to be all healthy and fit and perfect together cultivating a perfect relationship 3% so no rating but I'm done with it

    45 running head over heels stars Nothing Ventured Nothing GainedMudRunAll sorts of funFor me it was a wonderful romance totally hot and smutty too and I just loved loved loved every single page The balance between story plot steam tenderness and MC's development was spot on Aiden and Matt were so perfect together They were kind of stubborn and a little when they didn't realize they totally fall for each other Once Matt gave up the control everything was different It stopped being a power struggle and the gentle humor of before was gone replaced by intensity and passion” The development of their relationship all from first meeting right until the very last page felt so real and was fantastically writtenI really liked the writer’s style and thoroughly enjoyed the story Low angst easy sexy read Will read of Jay Northcote starting with Nothing Serious and Nothing SpecialBR with Isabel and Barbara here Loved Recommended

    Written June 1 20153 12 Stars Pretty niceA MM audiobook novella 440 hrs written by Jay Northcote new for me and narrated by Matthew Lloyd Davies new for me I enjoyed Bristol UKAiden agrees to run the Mad Mucker a twelve mile muddy slog over an obstacle course The training will be very tough but when Matt the sexy cousin of one of Aiden’s coworkers agrees to train with him Aiden suddenly finds the prospect of running and visit the gym a lot appealing Matt isn't out of the closet and call himself bi a ex girlfriend etc in mind Nevertheless sweaty running with a goodlooking man makes attraction and steamy feelings raise for them bothI liked the start when Aiden had to fight with tired legs and 'wheezy' breathing No attempt to be lazy worked either Matt was a taskmaster when it came to training And it paid off I need a Matt here right now Nothing Ventured was sweet witty and uick read You get that light goodfeel feeling a lot of funny moments and just adorable believable characters I always likes stories set in the UK too Smex? Some yummy parts but steamy in a nice way than erotic Best of all; you had to wait for that grand finale with those touching words Overall a good one —I didn't love this narrator to much of an actor? but I don't have that much to complain about either— I'm sure I'll try audiobooks by this writer with this narrator or notI LIKE lighthearted happy feeling stories

    I always enjoy Jay Northcote's books and Nothing Ventured was no different but I wanted so much romance I know Jay can bring the emotions and the heat but he didn't uite deliver with this story The plot was really fun I liked the Tough Mudder style competition and there was a good helping of angst but I felt like most of the story was well just training and hanging out Sure these two guys hooked up a lot but I kept looking at my Kindle and wondering when the emotions were going to come into play Even over the halfway mark one of the MCs was still hooking up with a friend on the side I don't particularly hate that in a romance but at some point the romance has to kick it into high gear I thought the first kiss took forever to come and the feelings barely made it into the story before the end It was a short easy read but I wanted a bit Copy provided in exchange for an honest reviewgoodreads|instagram|twitter|blog

    Hell yeah this one was by far my favorite Jay Northcote book so farThe setup is that Aiden who is only a little out of shape despite the blurb making him sound a bit rotund gets roped into participating in a 12 mile mud run during Teuila gate by his drunken co workerbestie LivLiv has also tagged her hot muscley fitness trainer cousin Matt to be on their team for the race She then enlists Mat's help to whip Aiden's wee bit flabby ass back into shape And the race is in 12 short weeksSo the training begins and Aiden slowly begins to chip away at Matt's stoic personality and the two become mates And training partners with benefits after putting a very strict no strings attached boundary in placeThe book for me at least was about overcoming parental issues and learning that their shit is just that Their shit not yoursFor Aiden coming from a broken home and witnessing his parents' multiple remarriages and divorces has left him unable to believe in lasting love so he stringently limits himself to hookups and is unwilling to even consider ANY type of actual relationshipFor Matt his continual pursuit of his homophobic military father's approval even 9 years after the man's death limit his potential life partners to only those without genitalia matching his own So he will sleep with men on the down low but only date women EverHowever as hardly anything in life ever goes according to initial plans the 'sex only' hookups turn into something much for both Aiden and Matt as they develop true feelings for one anotherBut commitment phobic men tend to do what commitment phobic men do best They don't face their fears and then run from situations that make them uncomfortable So when Aiden confesses that he would break his 'no relationship' rule for him what does Matt do?Run away run awayThey're both miserable alone and come back together again for good during the race when some Shrek like twat puts Aiden in danger and Matt comes to the rescueI loved the chemistry between the two MC's and the sexy parts were FLAT OUT HOT Flip flop yay 45 stars for this one My copy of this book was provided by the publisher for a fair unbiased review

    25 StarsI've read close to twenty of Northcote's stories over the past few years and I must admit this was my least favourite of my reading experiences Obviously we can't win them all nor should we but I'll admit I was kind of surprised and disappointed by my reactions to this oneFirstly all the constant talk of fitness and health started to grate on my nerves and make me feel kind of shitty about myself which obviously wasn't the intended outcome but nonetheless was the reaction I had Matt's character in particular came across as preachy and kind of rude regarding Aiden's exercise habits at the beginning making it hard for me to connect significantly with his character later onI also struggled with the friends with benefits plot and the way the characters expressed themselves view spoilerparticularly early on when Aiden was messing around with two characters one of which was his main love interest Matt back and forth over one weekend I just found this behaviour kind of off putting and it definitely impacted my opinion of Aiden's character hide spoiler
