Book Description:

All Beatriz “Bia” Fernandes wants is to prove herself—to her family and friends—though it’s hard to prove anything with an overbearing father and three famous polo-playing older brothers. After her acceptance into college results in a heated family argument, the Brazilian girl leaves everything behind to find her own American dream.

College life away from home is perfect until the people she believes to be her friends turn on her. With lies and rumors threatening to suffocate her, Bia turns to her only freedom. Riding.

But one thing gets in the way of her escape. Garrett Blackwell and his bad cowboy attitude. Working at the ranch is his obligation, bugging Bia is his newfound hobby. His thick skin and easy grin don’t hide what Bia already knows—this misunderstood and lonely cowboy fights his own demons. Brushing horses’ coats and mucking out stalls shouldn’t be this sexy, and it isn’t long before he becomes a part of her distraction.

However, escaping won’t solve her problems, and it’s up to Bia to break down the fences around her and prove her strength—not to her family and friends, but to herself … and for Garrett. Because standing on her own doesn’t have to mean standing alone.

** Companion novel of Breaking the Reins. Can be read out of order.**



My Take On The Book:

So, I’m not ashamed to admit that I squealed at the end of this book. I really enjoyed this book, maybe more than I like the first book in the series… And let me just say I loooovvveeed book 1. I fell in love with series when the author introduced us readers to Hannah and Leo, a couple that was just too cute. There was more than steamy chemistry for those two but this book was a whole different ball game. It was steamier and umm well I love cowboys ;) lol.

In all seriousness tho, I really enjoyed learning more about Bia. She was a character I instantly liked in the first book so getting to read a whole book about her kinda rocked. I knew this was bound to be good, and Ms. Haygert did not disappoint. Breaking Fences gave us a look into the college life and introduced us to a whole slew of characters… many of which I wanted to slap around. In this book, you learn that the brave and take no shit Bia is just as vulnerable as anyone and you get a look at her softer side all while getting acquainted with the yummy Garret who has issues of his own to sort. My only pet peeve with this one was the massive predictability but it more than made up for that when you are met with a mellower read in comparison to the first book which is really packed with a lot of ‘Oh shit’ moments.
4.5 Quills

I’ve been a fan of Juliana Haygert since I picked up Everlast book one, Destiny Gift. She is an extremely talented author with a very vivid imagination, an imagination she seems to have no problem putting on paper and portraying. Her writing style is easy to follow, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself fully emerged in the world she creates and shares with her readers. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys romance, sizzle, and captivating stories that are easy to follow.
