Nothing Ventured by Jay Northcote, 5/5

When Aiden agrees to run the Mad Mucker—a twelve-mile muddy slog over an obstacle course—he’s expecting it to be a bit of a laugh. The training will be tough, but Aiden could use the motivation to regain some fitness.

Matt is the sexy cousin of one of Aiden’s coworkers and a last-minute addition to the team. When he agrees to train with Aiden, Aiden suddenly finds the prospect of regular workouts a lot more appealing.

Soon attraction flares, and they embark on an intense physical relationship. Matt doesn’t want to fall in love with a man, and Aiden doesn’t want to fall in love at all, but despite their insistence on no strings, they grow closer. As the day of the race approaches, time is running out for them to work out how they feel about each other.

Review 5/5

This was just a really lovely story. Set against training for a race and the idea of being friends with benefits, this is a book that I read in one sitting cover to cover. Jay never fails to write stories that just make me smile. Loved Matt so much, all resolute, and Aiden all confused. 

Now, I think there is an ideal chance for a book for a secondary character that I could love to see *coughs* Pete *coughs*.
