Motocross star, Beckett Monroe, is in need of some serious R&R. Not only to adjust to his new out-of-the-closet status, but in hopes of reigniting his passion for motocross. To his surprise, support shows up in the way of Christian Foster, his childhood best friend and first love. Spending time with Christian is the jumpstart Beck’s heart needs. But even if Christian can forgive Beckett for hurting him years ago, do they stand a chance against all the obstacles in their path?

A Crossroads Novella.
29,000 words.


Boy did I love this novella! Novellas are tricky and aren’t always a hit for me. Often I find myself that we’ve not gotten enough back story or it feels rushed so sometimes I skip over them. BUT this IS Riley Hart + best friends to lovers + second chance romance= I’d be crazy not to read, it. And you’ll be too if you don’t read it!

Beckett and Christian’s friendship and their budding relationship ended when Beckett picked his motocross career over Christian. Fast forward years later- Beckett is outed, and despite old hurts, Christian is there for his old friend.

What did I love about it? Everything:

-Christian and Beckett. Their connection, personalities, their love, and respect for each other.

-Relationship development. As I mentioned above, their connection was felt on every part of their story. She gave us enough back story to make their feelings come across as genuine and heartfelt.

-The pace of the story was perfect.

– Their chemistry was equal parts sweet and sexy.

-It was fun catching up with The Crossroads Gang!

-Dual POV

-And the end left a big smile on my face.

I just thought it was so well written and highly recommend this novella- the entire series, actually. You can’t go wrong with any of these books. 5 Stars.

P.S. Pleeeaase give Quinn a book!
