She can't stand them.

Hates them.

Refuses to be one.


Tessa Brooks is strong-willed, sassy, and determined, on the brink of dominating in the testosterone-fueled sport of horse racing. She’s spent her life avoiding the norm, staying true to herself to achieve her ultimate goals.

Her relationship with Jace Hitchen, her brother's best friend, just might be the biggest cliche of all. Over the years, he’s been her protector, her annoyance, her confidante, her crush. But giving in to what she's really wanted for the last ten years could be the very thing that destroys everything she's worked for and wanted. Can Tessa achieve her dreams for the future, but still hold on to the past?

I started and finished reading this book in one sitting as it really caught my attention. I enjoyed the setting, this is the first book I've read set in the horse racing world. This makes a very unique book in my opinion. Tessa is a wonderfully strong female, determined to make it as a jockey. I love that it is the woman's career that causes problems, usually it is the man's, again a unique feature! Jace has loved Tessa since he first held her as a baby, alongside his best friend and Tessa's brother, he vowed to be her protector. He comforts her in times of sadness, and laughs with her and at her but can they became more than friends and occasional lovers? I really enjoyed the other characters, they added depth. Overall a really enjoyable read and with 4 stars is certainly worth one clicking!!

CM Foss is a hopeless romantic with a love for the written word. When she was little, her mom would ration her books so she wouldn’t go through them too quickly. It didn’t matter, she would just re-read. She’s always been an avid equestrian, competing in the top levels of Three Day Eventing by age seventeen. CM now resides in Northern Virginia with her husband and kids where they own and operate their own equestrian business, as well as raising grass-fed, sustainable meats. She doesn’t have this thing people call “free time”, but she does spend a weird amount of time writing, reading, playing with her kids, milking goats, and drinking wine, while avoiding bananas at all costs. Other books by CM Foss include Shiver, Swoon, and City Beautiful.
