All bets are off in this heartfelt romance by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.
Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.
After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit, he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.
How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll be there only long enough to break it?
So Harper and Aidan agree: try to keep it professional, and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way, they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And, as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.
It took me a lot longer than I hoped it would to get through this book, but once I found my footing, I was really enjoying Harper and Aidan’s story. I loved what Harper’s passion was and seeing all the animals she takes care of on the farm. Rescuing animals was something that constantly called to her soul and I loved that Jennifer was able to portray that effortlessly.
As sizzling as their chemistry was, I respected the kind of relationship that they wanted to hold. I didn’t think it was going to take so long for them to get together, but it made for a slow burn kind of story. So it’s definitely a kind of story that we’ve read before.
There was an instance where I was a bit nervous that Jennifer was going to add a bit of drama, but I was so very thankful that she didn’t.
I thought it was a neat story, I know very little when it comes to racing horses. But thought it was great foundation for Aidan’s and Harper’s story. This series has been a bit of a battle and I still can’t pinpoint what exactly it is that’s holding me back from completely loving it.
All Roads Lead to You is my favorite in the series so far and I will continue to read the next ones.
