Changing Gears by Roseanne Beck is the story of two people trying to navigate life in their own awkward manner, but fate brought them together in the most beautiful way. Lauren Moore is trying to put the pieces of her life together while making sure that her family’s bicycle shop business does not fall apart. She is an awkward mess, especially when she comes across any handsome man. She just doesn’t know what to do with herself. So when she meets the handsome and exceptionally talented Jake Chambers, she knows she is in trouble. He is off-limits, he is angsty about his injured leg and she is not really sure if he likes her or not. So what is a girl to do in a situation like this? She is falling hard for this guy, but she is reluctant to give love a chance. Should she take the plunge and see what happens?
Funny, witty, gentle, sexy and familiar, I loved this story for so many reasons. Roseanne Beck has done a wonderful job of creating a story that makes you laugh out loud and relate to the characters at the same time. I loved how funny and equally awkward both Jake and Lauren are; they are perfect for each other. They allow the other person to be themselves while trying their best to be as supportive as possible. The plot is fast-paced, amazingly well-developed and the overall feel of the story is exceptionally good. Reading this story was like hearing a friend share a tale with me that she loved. I loved the development, the characters, the humor, the love, the relationship and absolutely everything about this novel.
