Le Tour de Love
by Lilac Mills
“…the opportunity of a lifetime.”
When physiotherapist Molly Matthews is offered a dream job by a guy who shaves his legs and has an obsession with his bicycle, she has serious doubts about accepting. But, as she keeps telling herself, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime and she’ll never get another chance like this. So, she does what anyone in her position would do – she agrees to join a professional cycling team for the most prestigious race in the cycling world – The Tour de France. The reality, though, isn’t exactly what she had anticipated; instead of eating out at restaurants in pretty French villages and spending her free time lounging around the hotel pool, Molly finds herself living out of a suitcase for three weeks, massaging eight pairs of sweaty legs, administering ice baths and treating saddle sores.And neither did she anticipate falling for a gorgeous, passionate, professional rider by the name of Alexander Duvall…
Fall in love with France with this glorious summer read!
I can add this enjoyable book to my list of great summer reads!!!!
I got to travel to France and watch a great couple fall in love…that was a win-win situation for me! Molly is a physiotherapist who is very talented in what she does. When new patient, Alex, walks in, she has no idea how much he will change her life. He offers her a dream job she can’t refuse. She will get the opportunity to travel the world as part of Alex’s professional cycling team. Her first stop is The Tour de France!
Molly and Alex have no intention of falling in love. Molly has her career and life back home. Alex doesn’t have time for a relationship. He needs to focus all of his attention on cycling. Yet, the two manage to do what they said they wouldn’t…fall in love. The road to happiness won’t be easy, especially when others intervene.
This is just a great romance. Yes, it happens over a shorter amount of time, yet it feels so right. They don’t rush into anything physical, but they connect in such a deep way that just made my heart melt.
Molly and Alex are both such great characters. Each of them have their own careers and independence yet they respect each other, and I loved the friendship that developed between them as well. It was a great foundation to a great romance.
If you are looking for a great summer read, you can’t go wrong with this one!!!!
Meet the Author
Lilac spends all her time writing, or reading, or thinking about writing or reading, often to the detriment of her day job, her family, and the housework. She apologises to her employer and her loved ones, but the house will simply have to deal with it!
She calls Worcester home, though she would prefer to call somewhere hot and sunny home, somewhere with a beach and cocktails and endless opportunities for snoozing in the sun…
When she isn’t hunched over a computer or dreaming about foreign shores, she enjoys creating strange, inedible dishes in the kitchen, accusing her daughter of stealing (she meant to say “borrowing”) her clothes, and fighting with her husband over whose turn it is to empty the dishwasher.
