This is the first book in Kathleen Brooks' Best-Selling Bluegrass Series.
McKenna Mason, a New York City attorney with a love of all things Prada, is on the run from a group of powerful, dangerous men. McKenna turns to a teenage crush, Will Ashton, for help in starting a new life in beautiful horse country. She finds that Will is now a handsome, successful race horse farm owner. As the old flame is ignited, complications are aplenty in the form of a nasty ex-wife, an ex-boyfriend intent on killing her, and a feisty race horse who refuses to race without a kiss. Can Will and McKenna cross the finish line together, and more importantly, alive?

I plan to listen to the next books in this series because I enjoyed the story line, but the narrator spoke so fast it ruined a lot of the mood and made it hard to visualize the story, or build a relationship with the characters.
He articulated everything great and had great accents for the characters, but the whole time I listened I felt like he didn't enjoy the read and couldn't wait to get it over with. It was so fast I almost wondered if the editor sped it up on purpose after the recording to try and make it shorter intentionally. Skilled narrator but maybe not the sort of book he should be recording.
I kept going back and trying to get interested, it just didn't get any better.
Poor character development, not much story to it at all.
He came across rather flat. His little old lady voices were the best as the leading role he was just dull.
No, I can't imagine the story going anywhere.
I can't believe no information that this book would end with no resolution of the problems or mention of a sequel mentioned in the review. Nothing makes me more mad than a book that has an ending without stating another book is required to end the story. How deceptive. I refuse to buy the next one. The first one was lame enough to end my interest in any further involvement in the characters. Shame on you Ms. Brooks and Mr. Dove!
Fantastic audiobook! I loved this book and have read it many times but it is a whole different experience to have it read to you! The narrator was great! It wasn't read too slow so you never lost interest! I will be purchasing the next in the Bluegrass Series and hope that Kathleen one day has the Bluegrass Brothers Series recorded for audiobook too!
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
I enjoyed every bit of this story. At one part I almost ff it but KB didn't draw the lie out so perfectly done. Eric was wonderful on all accounts. If you want a awesome love story with a great mix of action and awesome characters get this book iI loved it.
Say something about yourself!
I thought this would have some good romance and excitement in it but it was way too slow for me. A kiss here and there. And a few dramas that helped the book. But not what I’m use to. I bought all three books and wish now I would have been smart and listened to book one first. As I don’t think I will get into the other 2 if they are as slow and boring as the first book. But some people like just a slow moving well predicable story. If so, this one may be for you.
After listening to this book, I'm really surprised that this book has earned such a high rating on Amazon, Goodreads, etc... Only a week after listening to this book and I'm having a hard time recollecting much about it, as I write this review.
No strong opinion about this book. It wasn't great and it wasn't terrible. It was just okay. Fairly generic, really. The performance was fine. I guess I was expecting more suspense, based on the synopsis. But, I still would have liked the contemporary romance if the main characters had been more developed. It was still entertaining though.
