Publisher's Summary

An enriching story of family ties, broken hearts, and second chances from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

When Ethan Bishop returns to the Hudson Valley, his body and spirit are a little worse for wear. As a former Special Forces paratrooper, he saw his fair share of conflict, and he came home with wounds, inside and out. At his sisters’ B & B and farm, he can keep all his pain at a safe distance. But quiet time isn’t easy when a fiery woman explodes into his life...

It’s business - not pleasure - that brings Manhattan PR agent Mia Thrush reluctantly to the farm. Tightly wound and quick tempered, Mia clashes immediately with the brooding Ethan. Everything about him is irritating - from his lean muscles and piercing blue eyes to his scent of sweat and musk.

But as the summer unfolds and temperatures rise, Ethan and Mia discover how much they have in common: their guarded histories, an uncontrollable desire, and a passion for the future that could heal two broken hearts. But will their pasts threaten their fragile chance at a brand-new future?

Wonderful story

Loved this story, it left a smile on my face at the end. I dinked the performance because I am not a fan of Madeleine’s voice, especially when she’s doing a male’s voice. No feeling.

Disappointing

The description of the book and good reviews made me get this book. It didn’t hurt that Sebastian York was one of the performers. However, his portion of the book was small and I found Madeline Mayby’s performance stiff and lacking. I had to take the speed up to 1.5 to get through the book. Not recommended.

Sweet book! Stormy love with great weather due!

OK, there were so many parts that had me chuckling. Hey Hey the chicken for one. I can always count on Jennifer to make me laugh, and even swoon a little at her real, intense and realistic guys and their dialogue. And, ya can't go wrong with Sebastian and Madeleine! I really liked the uniqueness of this book.. and how they both were willing to compromise at the end. It's a good read, er, Listen!

This is my first Jennifer Probst book

And I loved it! Such a sweet story about a Special Forces warrior who is wounded - physically and in his soul - and the woman who makes him whole again. Loved the narration too!

Loved it

I have so many books to read that I've been putting this one off because I've been so into other ones but what a mistake that was because this book is amazing. It took me a little bit but I'm so glad I reached the point of putting all the other ones aside and starting this one

The city girl and the horse whisperer

PR agent, Mia Thrush, had been tasked by her client, NY mayoral candidate, Jonathon Lake, to spend the summer supervisong his teen daughter while she serves out her community service at a horse farm in Upstate NY. Her first interaction with Ethan Bishop was not good...she was b!tchy & he was an @$$. How will they work together to keep Chloe on the straight and narrow? Former special forces vet, Ethan Bishop, has returned home to help on the family’s horse farm. He’s not pleased that they have to deal with a teen doing community service...and even less so when he meets her guardian. The prissy city girl acts on his nerve...at first...then she gets under his skin. The pair end up dating throughout the summer but can they have more? Ethan’s PTSD makes it difficult for him to live in the city and Mia’s high profile clients are all in the city. Great story of finding yourself, love and compromise.

The Start of Something....

Well you have Sebastian York to listen to so that right there is a positive. Although I have to say in this story, Sebastian seems a bit tired. Like maybe he's narrated one too many romance books in a row or something. But it's still nice to hear him. Madeline Maby- also Grace Grant? voice? was ok. Her voice gets a bit irritating sometimes. This has about 3 different story lines happening in it. You've got Ethan's, Chloe's, and Mia's. Nine hours is way too long. The book started out very slowly- I almost stopped listening. I stuck with it though. I don't think it would've been so slow in the beginning if a lot of the backgrounds had been shortened and just gotten going with what the book was really about. Of course there was sex. I fast forward after the first couple of those scenes cause it gets boring listening over and over again about it. There was push and pull with Mia and Ethan. She really does not start out as a likeable character at all. A snobby, bi**** actually. She gradually eases up a bit. Ethan is quite likeable as are his sisters. Overall, not a bad listen. Just too long.
