My life was full of nevers. 

It was never supposed to go this way. I was never supposed to lose Mom so soon. I was never supposed to worry about making ends meet, to worry about losing the farm. I never thought I’d be working a job I hate, with a boss who was more interested in what was under my shirt than in my head. Saving neglected and abused horses had been my whole life. It was my reprieve, my sanity, my last saving grace in a cruel world. I never thought I’d grow to resent it, but I guess there is a first for everything. 

Then I met him. 

The Hollywood playboy. The entitled, cocky asshole that I can’t get out of my head. I never thought there could be more to him than sex appeal and an infamous reputation of loving and leaving. I never thought I’d fall for him, put my heart on the line, and risk letting him completely destroy me. 

But you know what they tell you…never say never.

 Mix a country girl with a tragic story, and a Hollywood playboy that has it all, and you have yourself the perfect recipe for a one nigh stand. But, Haley is nothing like that to Aiden Shepherd. And he wishes that she could see that for herself. Losing her mother unexpectedly leaves Haley in a lurch - financially, emotionally, and physically hurt, she picks herself up the best that she can while leaning on her best friend Lori, and the horses that wait for her daily. When she lands a job at the small local newspaper, she doesn't expect herself to be face-to-face with Hollywood playboy Aiden Shepherd in such a short time. 

Aiden Shepherd has his own demons that he fights on a daily basis. When he meets Haley on a last minute newspaper interview, he doesn't expect her to linger on his mind as long as she does. What is it about her that makes his mind wander, and his demons find shelter in their own shadows. When they run into each other again in an unconventional way, Aiden finally convinces Haley to go out on a date with him. All hell breaks loose on said date, and Haley beats herself up over the whole ordeal. hat makes her special? What does he see in her? 

This was such a great novel. I really was excited over this because I am a huge equestrian myself, and own my own horses. This is a story about second chances, about looking life in the eye and saying you won't have anymore of the nonsense its dishing out. Emily Goodwin did a wonderful job bringing all of the characters to life, and even bringing the horses to life, and into Emily's life. Very well written, with a flowing story line that leaves the reader feeling all warm and fuzzy in the end!
