Publisher's Summary

An enriching story of family ties, broken hearts, and second chances from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

When Ethan Bishop returns to the Hudson Valley, his body and spirit are a little worse for wear. As a former Special Forces paratrooper, he saw his fair share of conflict, and he came home with wounds, inside and out. At his sisters’ B & B and farm, he can keep all his pain at a safe distance. But quiet time isn’t easy when a fiery woman explodes into his life...

It’s business - not pleasure - that brings Manhattan PR agent Mia Thrush reluctantly to the farm. Tightly wound and quick tempered, Mia clashes immediately with the brooding Ethan. Everything about him is irritating - from his lean muscles and piercing blue eyes to his scent of sweat and musk.

But as the summer unfolds and temperatures rise, Ethan and Mia discover how much they have in common: their guarded histories, an uncontrollable desire, and a passion for the future that could heal two broken hearts. But will their pasts threaten their fragile chance at a brand-new future?

Wonderful story

Loved this story, it left a smile on my face at the end. I dinked the performance because I am not a fan of Madeleine’s voice, especially when she’s doing a male’s voice. No feeling.

Sweet book! Stormy love with great weather due!

OK, there were so many parts that had me chuckling. Hey Hey the chicken for one. I can always count on Jennifer to make me laugh, and even swoon a little at her real, intense and realistic guys and their dialogue. And, ya can't go wrong with Sebastian and Madeleine! I really liked the uniqueness of this book.. and how they both were willing to compromise at the end. It's a good read, er, Listen!

This is my first Jennifer Probst book

And I loved it! Such a sweet story about a Special Forces warrior who is wounded - physically and in his soul - and the woman who makes him whole again. Loved the narration too!

Excellent Book

I really enjoyed this book by Jennifer Probst. I'll also be looking at more of her writings in the future.

It was easy to become completely invested in the characters. This was Ethan and Mia's romance, but we met Chloe, her father Jonathan, as well as Ethan's two sister's Ophelia and Harper along with countless other characters. They all made this story. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

Sebastian York is a favorite narrator of mine. I absolutely love his voice and performances. He once again brought life to the characters.

Madeleine Maby grew on me mostly. I do enjoy her voice. She was perfect for this series. But she just sounded forced or mechanical at times? Lots of pausing between every word during conversation, mostly when voicing the men. It's because of that I had to remove a star for the audio version. It was a bit distracting.

Also for those who are picky, the cuts were off occasionally. Long pauses between scenes/chapters or straight jumping into a new scene or chapter when there should have been a pause. It wasn't too bad, but, again, a bit distracting when it happened.

I wouldn't skip this book because of the negatives, but if your that picky...go get the book to read yourself!

The city girl and the horse whisperer

PR agent, Mia Thrush, had been tasked by her client, NY mayoral candidate, Jonathon Lake, to spend the summer supervisong his teen daughter while she serves out her community service at a horse farm in Upstate NY. Her first interaction with Ethan Bishop was not good...she was b!tchy & he was an @$$. How will they work together to keep Chloe on the straight and narrow? Former special forces vet, Ethan Bishop, has returned home to help on the family’s horse farm. He’s not pleased that they have to deal with a teen doing community service...and even less so when he meets her guardian. The prissy city girl acts on his nerve...at first...then she gets under his skin. The pair end up dating throughout the summer but can they have more? Ethan’s PTSD makes it difficult for him to live in the city and Mia’s high profile clients are all in the city. Great story of finding yourself, love and compromise.

Fun, Breezy Read

This was a sweet romance. No real danger or intrigue but a strong heroine from beginning to end and a lovable Alpha. I love that about Jennifer Probst, her female characters fall in love but they don't go stupid as soon as they do. They remain capable in business and love. Mia, although she was a bitch to Ethan Bishop when she met him because she was having a bad day and took it out on him, I still loved her and how she helped the local town business community and found her real niche and a life. Ethan is swoon worthy, ex-Special Forces/Hollywood bodyguard, strong of character, a bit damaged and guilt ridden. He jumped to conclusions about Mia but once they talked and straightened out their misconceptions about one another the heat and eventually the love was right there. And thank goodness she ate a cupcake. Listen and you'll understand.

Loved the close family aspect and both Mia and Ethan being the honorary family for Chloe, the candidate for mayor of New York daughter. She was the reason Mia was at the B&B horse ranch and she was a more of a rebel without a cause kid but in a good way. This novel leads right into the next one A Brand New Beginning that definitely has a more friends/lovers to enemies feel to it with Ophelia and Kyle. This was a nice listen and Sebastian York is narrating and we all know his voice is smoking hot. Madeleine Maby did wonderful female narration. I really love the scene where Mia sees Lion King for the first time. LOL! Awww, she's so sweet. Disney movies can be rough.

Oh and you have to listen just to find out about Hei Hei, Wheezy and Phoenix. Definitely an Animal Farm that you can grow to love and a love story that goes down smoothly.

Terrific Story, Bad Female Narrator

This story was terrific, heartfelt and funny! It was the female narrator that kept pulling me out of the story. Sebastian York was great as always but Madeleine Maby's voice is really bad. I almost stopped listening but the story kept pulling me along and I gritted my teeth and listened as the female lead read her part of the story. Just beware of her narration and you will really enjoy Jennifter Probst story!
