Review Originally Posted at: Book Freak


She’s focused, goal-oriented and doesn’t need the distraction – Abigail Conrad isn’t going to be the Reserve Champion for the Arabian Youth Nationals. Her life-long training is finally going to pay off when she’s going to win the roses. She had sacrificed so much for her dreams. While other girls her age party and drinks, this girl is training her ass off. Heading off to college in the fall, this is her last chance to win.


What she didn’t expect was to meet this handsome, funny, charismatic, super hot guy- Chase. Problem is that, he’s the older brother of Abigail’s biggest rival, Sydney. Suddenly, she starts to lose her focus on her ride, instead, all she can think about is him.

She was torn between her dreams and the unexplainable feeling she has with Chase…

Nothing is wrong with being focused on your goal and dreams, but nothing is also wrong if you give yourself a break, have fun and fall in love. I feel sad for Abigail because she had deprived herself so much because of her dreams. You can always prioritize your dreams rather than have it as the only thing on your to-do list whole your life. Sydney is not what I expected, she came in as a surprise in the last part of the story. Then there’s the irresistible Chase, who understood the pressure that Abigail has on herself, and he didn’t pressure her into liking him or spending time with him. I think she knew she made a big mistake when she let him go…

Good thing she realized her mistake…


But will it be too late for the both of them? will chase have her back?

It was short, sweet and really light read. I like the fact that it’s clean but it wasn’t robbed off of the romance that will still make you swoon.
