I have read all but one of Ms. Pettersen's books and loved them. However, this one is my favorite so far. Jenna is adorable and a breath of fresh air. I loved her down-to-earthiness. Her love interest, Burke, is a mixture of uptight, kind, steely, sexy, hunky, and also adorable in an alpha-male sort of way that makes one's heart pound. The ending of the book had me breathless and, dang, the battery on my Kindle ran out and I had to recharge it. Anyway, I finished the book with my heart in my throat. Kudos to Ms. Pettersen!

This is my first book by Bev Pettersen, and I've already downloaded another to my Kindle. I loved this book. I'd rate it one of my best reads this year. The characters are so real, so complex. They each have their own ways of thinking, each believing they are right, and of course they clash. Burke and Jenna are a great hero and heroine, full of charm, but both troubled souls in their own ways. It was wonderful watching them get together and slowly come to terms with their differences, and similarities. The secondary characters are equally well developed and I'd love to read more about Jenna's sister. Maybe she can get together with the poor lovesick vet? The horsey setting appeals to me as well and all the details about equine treatment were interesting without being overdone. Great story and one I highly recommend.

Format: Kindle Edition
The heroine steals from her employer (pills, treatments for her horse, grazes her horse on their property), forges her professional credentials and thinks no-one will ever find this out, lies to the hero about how much she's being paid under the table and somehow knows how to treat horses without any training and just her common sense. The hero isn't worth millions - he works for a company that buys other companies and then comes in to remove deadweight employees and makes the business profitable (which, somehow, this business seems be still operating despite the thieving heroine and her cheating boss). The hero also mentions a few times that he needs to have his girlfriend come out - not because he wants to see her or misses her, but he's horny (pure and simple - for no other reason). Ick. I stopped reading at the point where our heroine was literally sneaking her pony through the manager's apartment to get it laser treatment (that she wasn't paying for and I'm hoping was trained to do - but would have been forged certificates anyway!)

A delightful romance with captivating characters, who are totally different. Jenna is generous, spontaneous, and speaks her own mind. She's hardly able to support herself and her sister, and yet manages to help everyone around. Burke is the alpha hero over and over, authoritative, strict, and thoroughly honest. Yet he can't help falling for the sassy Jenna from the minute he catches her stealing vitamins to save her pony. They continuously clash during hilarious situations that often turn emotional or highly sensual. Ms. Pettersen's writing is a pleasure to read, down-to-earth and so appropriate to the cast of characters. Although I am not a horse person at all, the author managed to make me love the pony, Peanut and, the Derby winner, Nifty. I highly recommend this book and the author.

Here's the line up. A college age younger sister who's ashamed of the poverty that she comes from. She is fine with having her older sister do her research, write her papers and pay her way. The older sister lies and steals from her employer to try to make ends meet. (Instead of having her younger sister grow up and get a part time job to help support herself.)

Enters the new male ram rod the employer sent down to turn a nonprofitable business into a profitable one. The new ram rod catches the theft within the first chapter and doesn't feel that walking out with a backpack full of company owned product is a firing offense. Must be because she is tall, blond and leggy.

Why should I care about any of these people? Plenty of folks have risen out of poverty without lying, cheating and steeling. Poverty isn't an excuse for unlawful and or unethical behavior. This is a fluff piece so how about a bit less moral ambiguity next time. Lets have the hero's and heroins be someone that we can be proud of.

The title isn't awe inspiring but when you start reading this book - you will want to stay with it. It is poignant, lusty and a fantastic read from start to finish.

Format: Paperback
The setting and premise were good, but way too much of this story was not believable. I understand the love/hate back and forth is a common romance theme, but way too often the hero in this story is just downright mean and degrading. The flow of the story wasn't smooth either. A ton of time would be spent explaining small little side plots, then the main story would take a giant leap forward with no explanation. At least it was free, and I finished it because I hate starting books and not finishing them.

It kind of read like a poorly edited movie-lots of potential and good idea, but poor execution.
