Leaping Hearts is the first book written by Jessica Bird aka the fabulous J. R. Ward of Black Dagger Brotherhood fame. Sadly, it seems to have rather low ratings on some of the major book sites that I frequent, but I think this may be due to fans of her later work deciding to try her backlist titles only to be disappointed. Like many, I came to be a fan through the BDB, but was still able to view Leaping Hearts as a completely different entity. I also found it to be a fas

I would have liked this one better if it wasn't so heavy on the horse culture and all that it entailed. After a while it got boring and old. I also didn't care for the same basic argument that AJ and Devlin got into. Each time Devlin had the same reaction, to get pissed, yell some harsh words, then run away. For a man in his 30's that was childish. I did love Chester, he was such a great character, too bad he couldn't redeem the things that turned me off. ...more

This book is beautifully written. Not having much knowledge of horses, I felt like I knew what was going on with the horses in this book. The love that blossoms between the two MC's is contagious. It made me want to go home and kiss my husband. I plan on reading many, many more of J.R. Ward's books. ...more

A romantic tale of horses and the people who love them.

My Take
The primary theme is having faith in yourself but acknowledging your shortcomings. In other words, never lie to yourself.

This is a sweet romance that revolves around show jumping, an unthinking beauty, and a man who has retreated from life. It flows well and has some nice insight on A.J.'s part as she realizes just how good she had it and what her family has had to put up with as opposed to what she thought.

I thought the arrangeme
Love Sabbath. Black stallion with a bad attitude? Hard not love him. Hhmm, JR has come a long way since her debut. I found the romance hard and fast. And no. Not in a good way. One minute they're tacking up Sabbath, next, they're macking on each other! I actually had to go back to see if I missed something.

JR has learned to pace the romance and tease it out nice and slow. She still slips now and again, but she's only human, not a robot. Well so far as I know LOL. Point is? she learned a thing or

A.J, a young female competitive jumper, buys Sabbath, a rambunctious black stallion. Though she's the daughter of a wealthy engineer, the stables she and her mother started are now run by her whiney pretentious step brother Peter. Peter is a caricature of spoiled wealthy white boy, as A.J. is a caricature of every hard working woman who has to pull her own weight. A.J. leaves her fathers house and stables after being denigrated and verbally abused by Peter, and is taken in by Devlin McCloud, a c ...more

I was really disappointed in this one. Everything else I have read by Ms. Ward has been fabulous, but this one missed the mark for me. Way too much detail, not enough plot in some ways, in other too much talking about this or that. I didn't understand how AJ and Devlin never met before when they are both in the same business and live just down the road from each other, I found that really hard to believe. Also, Devlin was kind of a baby, needed to act like a man not a teenager and pout when thin ...more

Author Jessica Bird's first published book - she is aka J.R. Ward, author of Black Dagger Brotherhood series (vampire warriors) ...

Leaping Hearts is a very good solid romance, set in the world of horses & horse competition. Excellent job developing characters, incl. supporting characters & sub-plots - this is a real nice read, a real page turner. Love all the info about horses :-)

I'll definitely be reading more of Jessica Bird, and soon!

Really more like 2 1/2 stars. Cheese fest. Seriously. It is obvious this is early in Ward's career. I still found it enjoyable fluff reading, for the most part, though. What can I say, I like horses! LOL ...more

what the heck is this one????
Has Its Ups and Downs
The moment A.J. Sutherland saw the sleek black stallion named Sabbath, she knew. She just knew he would be a champion jumper. The stallion's hellish reputation notwithstanding, she saw him as pure gold and bought him at auction over the strenuous objections of her stepbrother, the contentious pain in the hindquarters who runs the business side of her wealthy father's stables. A.J. was resolute, however, and with one signed check she committed herself to a whole new life. Her

I am a J.R. Ward fan so it was fun to go back and read her first book. I can see by the forward that she is proud of this book and she should be.

The main story in this book worked for me. I like horses and there was a steamy romance to go with it.

The reason i gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because i didn't care for the ending. Don't get me wrong, it was a HEA as i wanted and expected, it was just missing something. (view spoiler)

I have had this book waiting for me for over 2 years. I don’t know why I did not read is as Jessica Bird aka J.R. Ward is one of my favorite authors and her work does not dissapoint. The story captivated me from the beginning. I am not a horse fan but the background story was one big part why I liked the book. Really interesting to read about show jumping! The other reason is the insta connection between the two MCs. I like it when the MCs fall directly in love and you do not have to wait until ...more

Wonderful book. Ward is an author that can go into details about something while still holding my interest. I learned about the sport of competitive jumping without the desire to skim. The characters were fantastic, except I would have liked to see a come to Jesus moment for Philippe, a minor character meant to be distasteful. This is the last of this author’s backlist for me and I am too eagerly awaiting her next book.

What a way to start.

This was JR Ward's first book and you can see how she started with strong men and even stronger women. Set among a background of competitive horse jumping and you have a couple who can burn bright on and off the field. The characters are well defined and you can both see and feel the family tensions, the jealousy, the self anger, but you can also see the love. A love so strong that it can conquer all. Overall great read.

When I love an author I want to read everything they've written. (I would read grocery lists if I could) So writing under a pseudonym is like finding buried treasure. Ladies and Gentlemen this is JR Ward. You know, of the Black Dagger Brotherhood fame? This is not paranormal this is a Black Beauty type of story. Our heroine believes her horse can win she just needs the right trainer. Enter our hero in need of redemption.
A lovely story written by a master storyteller.
It was ok but a little corny and cliched .... Cute quick read but not something i will remember or recommend to others .....

I was very annoyed that she hid her broken arm and went on training and working herself to the bone, knowing she should have been in a cast!! Ridiculous! Who does that?!

I don't usually read romances, but I thought I would try since I read JR Wards other books.

I loved this! Great story and the quick whittled banter between the characters halarious.

Definitely recommend.

I agree with one of the other reviewers. this book was good in the beginning and in the middle but just started to fall towards the end when most of everything that was a problem was the heroines fault. she was a spoiled brat with a complex.

This was good. I’m a big fan of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, and her contemporaries. I believe this was her first book, and it was solid. I think I’m coming to realize that straight romance isn’t my bag anymore. I like some action or mystery in there too.

Another great book from JR Ward. I really enjoyed it and I love how Carter was mentioned. She's in the next book I noticed. So I know what my Christmas read will be 😁

I can't even begin to tell you how happy I was when the audiobook for this started and there was a short intro from Jessica Bird aka JR Ward that talks about how this particular book came to be and what it means to her. It definitely gave me a different perspective before diving into the story and I was able to appreciate some things more. Especially knowing this was her FIRST EVER story, the fact that she got lucky to get some pointers from Sue Grafton,

“Tell you what,” A.J. offered. “I’ve got some errands to run today. We’ll hijack the truck and pick up a new one together.”
“You askin’ me on a date?” Chester asked wolfishly.
“I suppose I am.”
“You buyin’ or am I?”
“If you’re talking about the wheelbarrow, I am,” Devlin interjected.
“But what about food? If it’s a date, ya need food.”
“Probably not a lot of that at the local hardware store,” A.J. said with a grin. “Considering your days of eating nails are over with.”
“Well, I’ll pay for lunch if we go to the Pick a’ the Chicken.”
“Okay, but you should know, I don’t kiss on the first date.”
“Neither do I.”
“I have a trainer,” she confirmed while searching for an escape route.
Standing closer to this man is like being stuck in an elevator, she decided. You’d bargain with God to get free.
“But not just any trainer. Not only does this woman tackle a stallion no one else can seem to tame but she resurrects the dead, n’est-ce pas? You have done wonders to stir McCloud’s blood again, or so I have heard.”
A.J.’s mouth dropped open at the insinuation. “What are you talking about?”
“Surely you jest. The news is all around.” He gesticulated with a limp wrist. “Although I must say, you are faithless to leave your family in favor of a man who is not your husband. No matter how good you find his services.
Her vision narrowed on the man’s jugular. “Why, you little—”
Devlin appeared at her side. “A.J.! Time to go pace off the course.”
“Ah,” Philippe said grandly. “And here is your good teacher, the man you gave up so much for. Myself, I could not imagine leaving my family for someone else’s stable, but I am French and we are known for our loyalty. Then again, I also don’t need the particular kind of instruction this McCloud offers.”
A.J. could sense her face tuning brick red and felt like a boxer winding up for a punch.
“Come on,” Devlin said.
“Yes, run along, you two. I imagine there is much you must do to each other.”
That did it. She lost it.
“Why, you tar-mouthed gossip hound—”
She was itching to go further but Devlin put a firm hand on her arm and began to lead her away.
“And speaking of gossip,” the Frenchman called out as they left, “you would do well to keep your ear to the floor. I myself am going to make an announcement soon.”
“That’s ‘ear to the ground,’ you—”
“Enough,” Devlin hissed, dragging her off.
When they were out of range from the crowd, A.J. whirled on him, eyes flashing turquoise.
“How could you let him go on like that? You didn’t give me the chance to defend us!”
Devlin said nothing, which infuriated her further. He just stood there, staring at her calmly. Didn’t he have any pride?
“I mean, come on! Marceau made insinuations that were insane and you hauled me off before I could respond.”
When that didn’t get any reaction, she frowned.
“You finished?” he asked. “Or do you want to give him more of what he’s after?”
A.J. looked confused.
He said, “Tell me what you’re thinking about right now.”
“How I’d like to crown him with a bag of feed.”
