The Cyclist by Anthony Neil Smith @anthonynsmith #review

A failed marine, Judd can’t believe his luck when Catriona falls for him. He lives in Minnesota; she’s from Scotland. They work for the same company, they’ve messaged online for ages. But when they finally video chat, she turns out to be gorgeous. They may be thousands of miles apart, but they share a deep love of cycling and a passion for life. It’s love at first sight.

Judd throws his meager savings to the wind and flies across the Atlantic to meet Cat in person. Together, they plan a bike trip through the desolate Scottish Highlands. Perfect for cycling. Camping out. Being alone. But soon Judd discovers there’s more to Cat than meets her alluring brown eyes.

What Judd doesn’t know is that someone is following them. Someone with sinister plans. Their lonely journey through the Highlands turns into a game of cat and mouse. Someone is making them ride for their lives. But who exactly is the hunter, and who is the hunted?

My Thoughts

This is the first book that I have read by Anthony Neil Smith, the title totally sold it to me. Which i think is very original having read so many books i am always on the lookout for something different. And to be totally honest I enjoyed this book that much I wish I had read this book sooner.

In this story we meet ex Seal Judd who is now a  banker he finally leaves his home in Minnesota to fly over the ocean to meet Catriona who he has been messaging online for a while . We follow him on what is meant to be a biking adventure which turns into a living nightmare.

With only a couple of characters the author gives you plenty of background information so you really get to know them…and for the ladies you cannot help but like Judd!

I have to say that this story certainly isn’t what I expected it to be with the initial onset of Catrina and Judd’s romance. This story is packed full of action that will keep you on the edge your edge. Not forgetting the OMG moments….The cyclist is full of twists and turns that you won’t see coming. Talk about keeping me on tender hooks, with only 190 pages this is a short and snappy read.

I really felt like I was watching this on the big screen.All that is left now is for this to be made into a film….which I highly recommend

Thank you to the author and netgalley for a copy in exchange for a honest unbiased review
