Kenleigh Briggs suffered debilitating depression at the age of twelve after losing both parents in a tragic house fire. Her aunt assumed guardianship and forced Kenleigh to learn how to horseback ride. She soon developed a bond with the horses that helped her work out and deal with her depression.
Seven years later, young Kenleigh is now a sophomore at the University of Texas, San Antonio.  During summer break, she arrives at Serenity Falls, a horse ranch devoted to helping children with disabilities learn to ride. She loves watching the kids build the same healing bonds with the horses that she did. She really finds satisfaction in paying it forward.
Wesley Adams, the son of the ranch’s owners, is a professional bull rider who lives in Dallas.  With his blond hair, Caribbean blue eyes, and tattooed muscular body, he is the epitome of every woman’s dream. Wesley is good guy, but he harbors a past he's not proud of.
Kenleigh has learned to take life head on. Content with the way her life is going, Kenleigh never expected Wesley. He takes Kenleigh on the ride of her life, but will she accept him faults and all? As life they are missing?

Clare's Review: 

This is a very very sweet story and a fun read. It started a little slow for me, and some things didn't really flow at first, but it picked up and I got more invested and interested in the characters as I went.

 Kenleigh is a 19 year old college student, continuing to cope with life dyer her parents are killed when she was younger. She is volunteering at a ranch for the summer that brings kids in with all ranges of disabilities, from physical to emotional.

 Wes is the son of the ranch owners, a professional bull rider, and has been hearing about Kenleigh since she volunteered the year before.

They have an instant connection.

 It's definitely a young love story at the start. Cute, flirty, proper time frame of dating kind of...but then it heats up a bit and Kenleigh and Wes get a little dirtier with each other. And I have to say, this is where the book gets good and feels more real.

 The beginning was almost too young, and then as things get a little grittier, it threw me for a second. Like, 'wait, would he really say that? Would SHE really say that??'

 But then it comes more natural and you're hooked. Both characters are extremely likeable. I truly enjoyed the story and would definitely read more. Especially when you're in the mood for a feel good read.

 My only constructive criticisms are:

 1: the book needed to be read through a few more times in editing to smooth out the kinks and it'd really shine
2: I know it's very popular to have playlists that go along with books, and I love that. I love this one more because I'm a country girl and I actually knew every song that was mentioned. However, there were so many listed with title and artist, that it also interrupted the flow of the book a bit. They felt a little forced at times and it kept me from losing myself like I enjoy!

 3.9 stars
