Title: Turning Over
Milo has a history of screwing up his life. He meets David at The Arches gym and realises this is his chance to start afresh.
By some miracle, Milo, Matt’s ex-boyfriend, has managed to hold down his job at The Arches gym, and keep his room in Jimmy’s house, despite being a total slob. But Milo is really bored of cleaning and the menial jobs he does every day. Then David St. Giles walks into the gym, he’s in London for two months and looking for temporary membership. Tall, dark and handsome David has Milo’s dream job as a political lobbyist and the contacts to get Milo finally into the career he’s always wanted.
Milo has a history of using his boyfriends and friends to get what he wants, and Gabe, Matt’s current boyfriend, is determined to warn David away. David doesn’t take the hint and invites Milo out. Milo is attracted to David, even if the man keeps trying to top him. This time he doesn’t want to take advantage of David, but he’d be stupid not to, wouldn’t he?

Turning Over by Sue Brown was a wonderful addition to The Arches series. Milo, lobbyist wanna-be but janitor at the Arches gym has a reputation. He uses hook-ups for his own personal and sexual gain and aside from two people has never had a relationship last.
While working at the gym he met David St. Giles, the man that has Milo’s dream job and life. Lucky for Milo that David was interested in him.
Milo was a self-centered brat who had a self-righteous air about him, and I loved him! Ms. Brown delivered a man who was filled with self –doubt and turmoil and beneath the surface was a likeable character that was misunderstood. Milo’s persona had always been aloof that when he attempted to right the wrongs, he was rejected and his motives were misinterpreted.
David was a man who understood Milo’s need for success and his zest for life, so the pairing of these two personalities added depth to the story.
What I particularly enjoyed about the series is the fact that Ms. Brown has written ordinary men in ordinary situation, no wine and roses needed as the group of friends attempt to map their life course. They deal with problems and issues befitting their stations and attitudes while maintaining a sense of realism.
I am a huge fan of The Arches. Milo and David complimented each other. Bossy meets arrogance melding together into hot steamy sex.
