Troy is in a loveless relationship with his high school sweetheart, and has been for a while now. As he looks in the mirror he is disgusted by what he sees. The ultimate jock back in high School, now at only 23 he is pudgy in the middle. He decides to join his local gym to get back into shape, and try spark some life back into his love life. He meets his new trainer at the gym, Mikah. Mikah is built like a god. He helps Troy to start getting back into shape, and along the way they become close friends. What Troy doesn't expect is the spark of attraction he finds himself feeling for Mikah.

This book was good and easy read. I loved the two main characters. They were both down to earth and extremely likable. But I never found the spark they felt. The chemistry just wasn't there for me. The story is well written and it flows well, but there were a couple of major eye roll moments. But even so, this was still an enjoyable, quick and steamy read.

Troy has been in a relationship with his girlfriend since high school and while at first they worked great, the spark seems to have disappeared. Thinking that him being slightly overweight might be the problem, Troy decides to join the local gym. There he meets Mikah and they become friends. What he didn't expect was that he would feel attracted to his new friend. 

The book is enjoyable, for the most part. It drags a bit on some parts and then it's too rushed in others, but the premise was good. Troy and Mikah are very likable and they seemed good together. I would've liked to see them as a couple a bit more than we did, though.

I'm aware this is an ARC copy, but I hope some of the grammar/spelling issues I found were fixed before posting the book to any retailer, since they can be a tad jarring. 

Rating: 3 Stars!

Alissa Rose is a mother of three, living in a rural town in western New York. She has a very wild imagination to go with her spontaneous personality and uses her writing as an outlet. For years she had the desire to write a book and make her day dreams a really for everyone else to enjoy. With the love and support of her family, that fantasy is now a reality! She uses her experiences traveling with her chainsaw carving husband in her first series to shed a new light on the unseen world from behind the Ferris wheel. Then turns up the heat even more with the novella Training Him, a M/M erotica that won’t disappoint.
