Blurb: Love is trying to catch up to two lonely men. Can they stop long enough to let it?

Running defines Kincaid’s life. It’s not until he loses it that he realizes how isolated he’s become. But even if an injury hadn’t forced him to slow down, the hottie in the yoga studio would have given him pause. In fact, admiring the man each morning is the only thing keeping the spring in his step when it feels like he’s lost everything.

Owen’s busy life as a yoga instructor doesn’t leave him much time to meet guys, let alone date. He’s convinced his passion for helping people is worth the sacrifice, but he’s willing to spare a few moments for the cutie who walks past the studio every morning.

When their lives intersect and romance is set in motion, they stumble off the starting block. But no matter the obstacles in their path, this race won’t be over until they reach the finish… together.



This was such a cute story! I loved that Kincaid has been leering after the hot yoga instructor and then was so awkward when they finally met. It was such a sweet moment and I loved how flustered Kincaid was. I also really enjoyed Owen and his sexy yoga moves but also how both of them have been ‘admiring’ the other from afar and Owen finally making the first move. They were just so cute together!! And I just loved the little misunderstanding (it’s not huge so don’t worry!) but it just fit with the whole awkward moments.

My only issue with it is that it was too short. I felt like just when Owen and Kincaid were finally getting together, it ended and I wanted more! I wanted to see a bit of where things went, see Kincaid’s sister meet Owen or even just seeing Owen at Kincaid’s place!

All in all, this was a great little short story. I loved Owen and Kincaid as characters and the sweet, awkward moments they had together. I wished it had been a bit longer because I would have loved to read a little more about these boys. I really hope it’s not the last we see of them because I feel like their story could have been much longer!!

Overall Impression: I really liked it!

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
