When a McKinney brother falls in love, powerful emotion and overwhelming desire are never far behind.
Two hearts locked away . . . Hannah Walker spends her days coaching children through injury and trauma, one therapeutic horseback ride at a time. She knows all too well how violence can change a child and leave scars that never heal. It’s easy for her to relate to the kids; what isn’t easy is the thought of facing her own harrowing past.
Millionaire playboy Stephen McKinney could use a little coaching himself. Five years ago he encountered his most horrible nightmare—and the nightmare won. No matter what he achieves, nothing can make up for that awful night . . . or so he believes.
Both desperate for a second chance . . . Stephen is used to getting what he wants. And he wants Hannah. So when she turns him down, he’s intrigued. What he doesn’t know is that her secrets will lead him to a place he never wanted to go again . . . to a side of himself he’s tried to forget . . . a side that would scare Hannah away from ever loving him. Now his only chance to win her trust is to bare his soul, risking everything he tried so hard to protect.

I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.
I hadn't read the first book in this series, Worth the Fall, but I don't think I needed to. Yes, the guys are part of the same family, but the stories are very separate. I really love how Stephen and Hannah meet; in the grocery store! It's super cute, but let's face it, not that common in real life! At least, not in my life before I met my husband! I never saw cute guys in the grocery store! haha Ok, back to the book.
This one really hit home for me. Both Stephen and Hannah have had some really awful things happen to them, which unfortunately I can relate to. I don't want to say too much about what happened but my cousin died when I was 10, in a similar way to some of what these characters experienced. So I related to them both right away. And I absolutely LOVE horses so the fact that Hannah works with them is amazing! I had horses growing up and there's a place near where I live that does therapy with kids with autism that I've always thought about volunteering at. This was just a really great book to read, and I definitely recommend it! I really want to go back and read Worth the Fall now! :) I can't wait to see what else this author has in store for us!
