While I had some major problems with this book, the plot itself was not one of them. Yates is a workaholic who uses his quest to get ahead in part, as a way to avoid relationships after one gone bad a year ago.

This is a cute love story between two different men who come together over their interest in horses. I felt the story would have benefitted from more "back story" about the two men and their reasons for avoiding relationships, rather than the quick way it was handled by the author.

In any case, I really enjoyed the story. It was a fun quick read with a lovely "feel-good" finish.
