REVIEW – ALL ROADS LEAD TO YOU (Stay, #3) By Jennifer Probst

SYNOPSIS

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.

Suddenly, he stepped back, breaking the contact, and the surge of loss took her by surprise. As if her body recognized its other half and now refused to live without it. Eyes wide, lips swollen, she stared at him with rising horror, recognizing what they’d just done. They’d ruined everything.

 

 

 

The romance between Harper Bishop and Aidan O’Connor was an incredibly slow burn. These are two people who each have been burned by their painful past. They’re both loners who enjoy the companionship of animals over people. I found their characters to be relatable. The plot is what held my attention. Harper runs the family Horse rescue farm. She has a huge and tender heart when it comes to animals in need. Aidan is a professional horse trainer who was forced to leave Ireland to rebuild his reputation in the horse racing circuit. He convinces Harper and her siblings to hire him on in order to help train the beautiful horse Harper rescued, named Phoenix, who has severe behavioral issues.

Honestly, I was more invested in Phoenix’s story and the adorable friendship that develops between him and the sweet little goat that Harper and Aidan rescued from nearly being euthanized. I fell instantly in love with little Captain Hoof, with his anxiety issues and who only felt a sense of calmness when wearing a chicken costume and being near his best buddy Phoenix. Once Harper and Aidan stopped fighting their feelings for each other, I started to care about the couple as well. These two were perfect for each other and their little family of fur babies made the couple endearing. If you’re looking for a sweet and sexy romance with an engaging plot, this one is sure to please.

Here are my overall ratings:
