When it comes to love, is timing everything?

Tom doesn’t have time for a relationship – not now that his fingers are practically touching the promotion he’s spent years chasing. His weekdays are consumed by desperately fighting for his editor’s attention and his weekends are wasted alone with meals for one and his cat for company.

All Cole has ever wanted is to work on the farm he was raised on, but money is tighter than ever and he is forced to get a job in a bar to keep a roof over him and his auntie’s heads. Time is running out for the farm but he spends his days dreaming about a future he thinks he’ll never have.

After an unexpected collision at the village train station, their lives suddenly become connected when Cole clumsily spills his coffee on Tom and it sets into motion something greater. Tom is wary of listening to his heart and Cole is distracted by the threat of losing everything. Each possesses something the other desperately needs, but can they ignore bad timing to listen to their hearts?


This is another winner for Ashley John! Timing is the perfect mix of drama, humor, angst, and love. With two amazing main characters and a fabulous ensemble this story was one to make you laugh, cry, and fist pump.

Tom and Cole (The MC’s) don’t live rich lives. They are like everyone else. Trying to get by while clinging to the dream. I really loved how I was able to relate to them both. We live in a paycheck to paycheck kind of world. We cheer for each other. When one of us gets a break it’s celebrated. So, it’s easy to love and be excited for Cole and Tom in this story.

Ricky, Tom’s best friend, is a colorful and perfect addition to this story. My heart broke for him a lot. He’s living half a life. He claims to be happy but I feel he’s missing out on so much. I REALLY hope he gets his own story and his own happily ever after.

Rox, Auntie Belinda, Mulder, Scully, Suzie… yeah some of those are people and some are animals… They all play important parts in this journey to an HEA!

Timing isn’t everything. Time isn’t always on your side. This story showed us that we need to live in seconds and cherish every breath and take more plunges.

This is a wonderful story and I highly recommend it.
