Bounce by Becca Seymour


"...uplifting and sweet..." - Goodreads Review
Author: Becca Seymour
Book: Bounce
Series: Outback Boys #2 (Complete Stand-Alone)
Genre: M/M Romance
Cover Designer: Booksmith Design
Outback Boys is a sweet and sexy M/M romance series complete with bruised butts, rope burn, and overworked muscles… all in the pursuit of adventure, of course!
Standoffish Aiden is content keeping people at a distance and ensuring his boundaries are impenetrable. There’s safety in not opening up, but there’s also a loneliness he doesn’t realise exists until he meets Riley, a new member of the LGBTQIA+ adventure group Outback Boys.

Fascinated by the new guy, Aiden is quick to discover his flirtation skills are rusty and his sweet-talking is cringeworthy. But sweet and clumsy Riley doesn’t seem to mind so much.

Even though Riley doesn’t quite know how to handle Aiden’s intensity, he’s willing to step out of his comfort zone and see how their tentative friendship unravels.

Between a surf lesson that resembles a kangaroo on acid and paddle boarding that is trickier than walking a tightrope, Aiden and Riley discover love may be a possibility after all.

Happiness relies on honesty and openness, though. And with both men holding on tightly to past struggles, their future together is at risk. Can the two Aussies bounce back and heal themselves and each other, or are some wounds too raw to recover from?

Trigger Warning: Contains themes (discussions) of mental illness and suicide.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

When Aiden joined the Outback Boys in Stumble, he was quiet, standoffish and a bit of a loner. All of this was for very valid reasons, so it was great to see him open up here in Bounce.

Riley was convinced to join the group by a work colleague. He is a little worried about joining as his fitness levels are not great but sticks with it. It is his willingness to be open and try new things that results in Aiden opening up. Both have faced challenges in the past but have come out the other side. 

I really enjoyed this read. It was easy to read, with fantastic scenery, wonderful experiences and some great characters. It was not all fun and games as life throws curve balls along the way, adding a lot to their story and to the characters.


Becca Seymour lives and breathes all things book related. Usually with at least three books being read and two WiPs being written at the same time, life is merrily hectic. She tends to do nothing by halves so happily seeks the craziness and busyness life offers.

Living on her small property in Queensland with her human family as well as her animal family of cows, chooks, and dogs, Becca appreciates the beauty of the world around her and is a believer that love truly is love.
