What they say: Le Tour de Love“…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…
About the author

The Review: Ooh this was a goodie!! There are times you’re reviewing and you simply want to tell people to read the blurb and then go read the book because what you see in the blurb? Well that’s what you get!!! We start where we should, with a physiotherapist Molly, meeting a Mr Duvall. He tells her he was in an accident and is annoyed about both the bike and the wrist. It is only minutes later (after she’s told him he can get one on sale in Halfords… snigger!), that we realise this is not your everyday patient- this guy is serious! And we’re in!! Duvall’s personality had me at the off, totally into his cycling, an obsessive that has planned to make it and nothing is going to stop him. I loved Molly for her experience and passion for the job and how she helped Alex straight off the bat. I ADORED when she landed into the world of professional racing and took in every vivid setting and experience with her. This was some book! I lived for the excitement, the tension and of course the romance, so exquisitely done. The characters, the entourage, the WORLD, were perfection, as was this book.
So recommended! Thanks so much to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review.
