April Miller works for her bestfriend, Max Knight on his livery and competition yard. Their friendship has withstood many turbulent times, and while April is deeply in love with Max, she is also aware of his womanising ways and has refused to succumb to his flirtatious charms. When her ex, AJ, suddenly comes back with a business proposal, April finds herself torn between the two men.
This novel is a quick read, but I felt like there was a lot packed into it.
There are many deeper themes in this novel. It is a Romance novel that deals with abuse of sorts. April has had to pick up the pieces after her life fell apart, she is on the right track and then a blast from the past threatens it. The characters were very well developed, they were flawed and believable.
The romance was well done. I liked that they had so many similar issues in their life and they could connect and help eachother in those ways.
