Winning The Gentleman by Kristi Ann Hunter

About The Book:

Aaron Whitworth hasn’t had control over most aspects of his life, but he’s always taken pride in being an honorable businessman and better-than-average horseman. When both of those claims are threatened, he makes the desperate decision to hire the horse trainer of a traveling circus as a temporary jockey for his racehorses. 

Sophia Fitzroy knows that most horsemen don’t take her seriously because she’s a woman, but she can’t pass up the opportunity to get away from the tumultuous world of travel and performing. As she fights for the right to do the work she was hired for, she learns the fight for Aaron’s guarded heart might be an even more worthwhile challenge. 

As secrets come to light and past vulnerabilities are confronted, will Aaron and Sophia sacrifice their former dreams and forge a new one together–against all odds?

My Thoughts:

This was an enjoyable and entertaining read filled with equestrian flair! Aaron Whitworth was an easy to like, man of few words! It was humorous to see him paired with a chatterbox like Sophia. These characters really tug at the heartstrings! Each had a unique history of hardship and loss that made it easy to understand their challenges and appreciate their growth throughout the story. Plenty of previous characters make appearances which is always fun! This book kept me rooting for these characters until the final pages!

One She Never Expected by K. Leah

About The Book:

Will Piper see the perfect guy when he’s standing right in front of her?

Piper is discouraged when she realizes the career she’s always wanted isn’t quite what she dreamed. She’s at a crossroads, and her future rests on what she decides to do next. There’s no room for distractions.

Nolan came home to work for his dad after his big city career took a nosedive. Now, he’s realized small town life isn’t so bad. When a quirky blonde catches his eye, he’s surprised to find the girl he once knew is all grown up. Too bad he’s the last thing on her mind.

Piper can’t see what’s right in front of her. Nolan doesn’t know how to capture her attention. Can he bridge the gap before they miss their chance?

My Thoughts:

This book was a sweet and effortless love story. I love a romance that is allowed to simply unfold. The every day, relatable characters, gradual falling in love kind of romance! I loved that this book takes the reader from first glance with Piper and Nolan to the happily ever after conclusion. I really enjoyed seeing these characters find their purpose in life and explore a relationship with each other. The characters are relatable and genuine and their relationship seems real and natural. Nolan was sweet and the perfect gentleman! I loved the conclusion and the ending made me want to dive into the next book!
