If they looked, would they ever leap?

Good-looking, confident, and doted on by his widowed mum, Michael is used to thinking only of himself. Getting shoved off an Isle of Wight pier by an exasperated ex ought to come as a wake-up call—but then he meets Rufus and he’s right back to letting the little head take charge. Rufus is cute, keen, and gets under Michael’s skin in a disturbing way.

Would-be chef Rufus can’t believe his luck when a dripping wet dream of a man walks out of the sea on his birthday, especially when Michael ends up staying at the family B&B. Life is perfect—at least until Michael has to go home to the mainland.

Rufus can’t leave the island for reasons he’s entirely neglected to mention. And though Michael identifies as bi, breaking his mum’s heart by coming out and having an actual relationship with a guy has never been his plan. With both men determined to keep their secrets, a leap of faith could land them in deep water


Lover's Leap by author JL Merrow is fast paced, funny, and very romantic read. I love the humor in this book the most. We have the story of Michael and Rufus. Michael is a bisexual guy. He was going through the motions with his newest girl. So he decides out of the blue to dump her, just as she is proposing to him. Well never break the heart of a girl who can kick your butt. Specially when you are on a peer. She kicks him right off the end into the ocean. By the time Michael gets back to his hotel they are all turned against him. He has to find dry clothes and a new place to live in one fell swoop. Michael has many responsibilities, but he has never had to take responsibility for the way he acts towards others. Has a lot of growing up to do in this book. Learning what he says and does effects other people.
Rufus is very innocent in comparison to Michael. Son of the Inn where Michael ends up. He is also a chef. They really have a steamy affair but can it withstand Michael having to go home?
I liked the light hearted feel to this book. Really is a sweet read. Ms Merrow always makes me feel very connected to her characters and I love that. I would say this book is for the truly romantic at heart. Not so complicated but beautifully done story of love.
