~ Synopsis ~
London Daniels is returning home to Willow Bay, Alberta, on the heels of a televised loss. She blew her shot at the Summer Olympics and cost Canada the gold medal in dressage.
During her years of training abroad, her family's stable has fallen on hard times, and thus, they’ve accepted an offer to board the racehorses of Branson Tucker, the infamous tycoon, for the winter.
London lacks conviction after her ill-fated fall. And as if returning to her hometown to watch her epic failure replay on everyone's big screen isn't torture enough, she’s expected to cater to a man with an ego bigger than her hundred-acre farm just to earn a dime.
Is London saddling up for another ride that will leave both her heart and her ass in the dirt? Or could the handsome, unwanted guest at Willow Bay Stables be her second chance to go for gold?
~ Review ~
This book starts out with London Daniels competing in the Equestrian event at the Olympics. Due to an unfortunate event she suffers a fall that not only causes her pain from the injury itself but also her pride. She is humiliated with having to go home and see her family and her small town.
Enter in Branson Tucker. He's a man on a mission and that is to make London his. He is very much an alpha male but one who is incredibly sweet and very loving.
Fate throws these two together and you instantly can feel the chemistry these two have. You get a dual POV which I really like because you get to know what the other is feeling and thinking.
One of my favorite quotes was this one: London is remembering a conversation she had with her mom. "We are strong women, we are horse women, and when push comes to shove, sweet girl, we can always change rein, for a new direction never ceases to bring with it a new light."
This is a great first book in this series. It's a pretty quick read that held my attention and I just had to know what would happen next. Looking forward to more in the Willow Bay Stables series.

I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving in trucks.
I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes. Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.
Since I’ve always been a creative person, it feels amazing to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are true? Hah. I’ll never tell—what would be the fun in that?
If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t.
