Timing by Ashley John (5*)



When it comes to love, is timing everything?

Tom doesn’t have time for a relationship – not now that his fingers are practically touching the promotion he’s spent years chasing. His weekdays are consumed by desperately fighting for his editor’s attention and his weekends are wasted alone with meals for one and his cat for company.

All Cole has ever wanted is to work on the farm he was raised on, but money is tighter than ever and he is forced to get a job in a bar to keep a roof over him and his auntie’s heads. Time is running out for the farm but he spends his days dreaming about a future he thinks he’ll never have.

After an unexpected collision at the village train station, their lives suddenly become connected when Cole clumsily spills his coffee on Tom and it sets into motion something greater. Tom is wary of listening to his heart and Cole is distracted by the threat of losing everything. Each possesses something the other desperately needs, but can they ignore bad timing to listen to their hearts?

“There were so many things he wanted to say but he forced himself not to say them.He knew it was too soon to be feeling the way he did but he didn’t care.He had never felt so strongly about another man before and that’s how he knew his feelings were real” (Cole)

“Cole looked at him as though he was the most beautiful man in the world and Tom wasn’t going to question that.He felt worthy because Cole made him feel special.” (Tom)

This is another book by this author,which I quickly got into,and enjoyed very much.I don’t want to go into great detail as it would spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read it yet,but I absolutely loved it and again it is all down to the quality of the writing,the main character’s (Tom and Cole) and side character’s who are as important in the flow of the story,often adding hilarious moments (Ricky) as with a previous book (‘Shelter’-which is cleverly given a nod within this) the intimate scenes are tastefully done and are not the main detail.The story flows well,there is a wee bit of an angst moment,but all ends with a HEA and a great Epilogue.

Congratulations on another amazing story Ashley John…Thank You
