I got this book in a box of books that I bought at a book sale Reading the first page I realized that I had previously read this book I remember liking the book the first time so I decided to keep reading Glad I kept reading. I enjoyed the initial chapters that dealt with the heroine s operation of a rescue farm but when the tall handsome stetsoned vet rides to her rescue and starts making with the foreplay matters got icky and boring. 3 out of 5 Hotness RatingRiding High is the 14th book of the Sons of Chance series by Vicki Lewis Thompson I didn t discover this series until around book 10, so I can tell you for

For anyone that s read Vickie Lewis Thompson you already know that her characters and her stories are just sweet, easy reads I swear every time I pick up one of her books it s like coming home Regan O Connelli walked in on his best friend business partner and his fiance on Christmas eve and they weren t wrapping gifts As a well known and talented large animal vet he knew he could find good work anywhere and that s exactly what he did He walked out and didn t look back His brother in law could use some help with his practice in Wyoming, so that s exactly where Regan went When called to help out at a local animal sanctuary he was happy to take it, but he had no idea the surprises that were in store for him when he got there Animals were running wild and free The barns were painted many colors of the rainbow and the woman that ran the sanctuary took his breath away But, he could tell right away that she is from the same free spirit mold that his parents were from and he has no intentions of hooking up with anyone that will just lose interest and move on a whim Lily King fell in love with the horse sanctuary as soon as she saw it So, she did what she always does she jumped at the chance to be it s new owner without stopping to consider all of the angles and issues that could arise She has an above average IQ and thanks to a video game she designed she has plenty of money in reserve, but money isn t the issue The animals are taking over and she just can t say no when new ones are dropped off at an alarming rate When Regan shows up and starts pointing out the changes that she needs to make right away just to keep anyone, including the animals, from getting hurt she knows she needs his help It sure doesn t hurt that Regan is sexy, smart, and is a take charge man Now, if she can just get him to let go of his pain and truly open up she knows the sparks will fly Regan was so sweet and I loved how he was with Lily After all, Lily reminded him of everything he hated about growing up with hippy parents Yet, he gave things a chance and got to know Lily as a person and then quickly accepted her for who she was I love when the author doesn t doesn t dig to create drama where no drama is needed I highly recommend Riding High to anyone that just wants to sit in front of a fire on a chilly night and enjoy a heartwarming story that will make you chuckle a lot.This book was provided to me by NetGalley.com in exchange for my honest review.You can find this review and others at www.riverinaromantics.com Originally posted on Adria s Romance

The Nerd Who Loved Me years ago That print copy didn t survive the new dog we found and I wasn t able to commit Thompson s name to memory.Fast forward 7 years and I m trying to catch up.Lily King has no idea how to run the horse sanctuary that she s recently purchased so when a friend offers to have equine veterinarian Regan O Connelli help her organize the sanctuary, she jumps at the chance What she doesn t expect is a wounded man that attracts her like no one else.Lily is the most unstructured, unorganized woman that equine veterinarian Regan has ever met but he can t seem to get her out of his mind Still reeling from finding his fianc in bed with his best friend, Regan doesn t want to get involved with Lily, but thetime he spends around her, the less he remembers why he should avoid her.I didn t know what to expect from Riding High, the 14th book yes you read right in Thompson s Sons of Chance series so I was excited about reading it I m so glad I did too, it s so different from her Wild About You series in the best ways At first Lily came off as a moron I get that she was spontaneous and has a good heart so that s why she bought a horse sanctuary but did she bother to do any research on how to run it before or after the purchase No I was willing to give her some points at first because I thought maybe the story took place before the internet but no, at one point she looks up what to feed pigs yet doesn t look up how to care for horses or run a sanctuary It didn t make sense to me or make her seem like a very smart person That s what kept me from warming up to her However, about halfway through Riding High Lily changed from inept but well meaning to a hard working, intelligent woman and I admired her ability to admit her faults and correct them.Regan was a great balance to Lily s flighty and unorganized personality He s reliable, quiet, and gentle, which was surprising given how badly he was hurt in the past He didn t follow the stereotype of disliking or being overly cautious about women or people because his best friend and fianc betrayed him He was kind and considerate of Lily and though he didn t want to get involved with her he never treated her with any kind of disdain or suspicion I loved that about him and because I love a man who loves animals, Regan s profession and understanding of horses just made him all thedelicious in my eyes.Regan and Lily s story was peppered with appearances from the Chance family, whom I haven t met yet but plan to in the future but fell in love with They re boisterous, loving, nosey and loyal I loved the humor and familial love they brought to Riding High What caught me off guard was the appearance of a character from Regan s past While I liked the conflict that characters appearance brought to Regan and then to Lily, I was disappointed with how quickly and easily Regan and this character resolved the conflict It felt like an empty resolution and made the initial conflict seem less serious than it was.Of course, after finishing Riding High I went to the author s site to see what book, if any came next in the series and imagine my surprise when I see that Regan s best friend and his ex fianc will each have their own books At first I had a big question mark of confusion on my face I mean, how the heck is Vicki Lewis Thompson going to explain what they did to Regan and make them likable enough to deserve a happy ending Talk about a challenge Now however, I m very intrigued and super eager to see how those two characters play out in upcoming books.Final Verdict Riding High was an impressive read from an author I had discovered years ago It s definitely different from her other series and that s wonderful for new and old readers, it s like getting different authors all in from one place I can t wait to read the upcoming books, nor can I wait to make time for the previous books in the series Originally posted on Tales to Tide You OverThis book has some issues, mainly that there s a little too much back story on the Chance Family in the beginning to tie this into that series and a little too much focus on detailed sex for my tastes even for a Harlequin Desire , but these two items aside, it s a lovely look at coming to understand yourself and being willing to let yourself be vulnerable enough to take a chance on love.The male main character, Regan, is broken for very good reason, bu Originally posted on Tales to Tide You OverThis book has some issues, mainly that there s a little too much back story on the Chance Family in the beginning to tie this into that series and a little too much focus on detailed sex for my tastes even for a Harlequin Desire , but these two items aside, it s a lovely look at coming to understand yourself and being willing to let yourself be vulnerable enough to take a chance on love.The male main character, Regan, is broken for very good reason, but not the one he thinks is the problem He d caught his fiancee in bed with his best friend just six months earlier and is wallowing in the betrayal, but it takes meeting Lily for him to see everything that led up to that crushing moment so he can learn the true source of his problems She s an unexpected intrusion into his emotional state, and one he cannot ignore.Meanwhile, Lily knows all there is to know about rebound relationships having had her heart stomped on by one before Forewarned about Regan s recent history, she s determined to keep her distance despite the instant attraction she feels If she can just keep things platonic as he helps her bring the horse rescue she s purchased around into something viable without having her charges stage a coup, everything will be fine.Lily s heart is too open for her own good to Regan and to the rejected animals that come to her door Regan s is too closed because he sees only the uprooted part of his childhood without recognizing the foundation.This is a novel about learning your own motivations and discovering when surface appearances can be misleading, both in Regan s interpretation of how he was raised and how Lily appears flighty when she s just searching for the job or person to make her heart sing.I think the resolution could have used some of the space spent on the sex mechanics to be stronger one of the reasons I think it s too much sex , and there s a small thread left dangling, but the story is well written and thought out Both of them have to grow and learn before they re ready to commit to a shared future, and that growth occurs on the page where we can share in their discovery.P.S I received this title from the publisher through NetGalley in return for an honest review &DOWNLOAD ⇳ Riding High ☠ Saddle up There ain t a rider that can t be thrown And large
