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.**

Although his can be read as an standalone it would be good to read the first book in the series just so you can get a back story to the other characters in the book. I loved Bia in the first book and I was glad that she was getting her own story. Bia was the only girl surrounded by boys so of course she was treated differently and I understood her wanting to be free and away from her brothers and cousin. Bia braking off was a good and a bad thing because once you are the new girl and people don't understand you there will always be someone who wants to break you down. I felt that Bia could have stood up more for herself but that was because I read the first book and this was a whole other side that you got to see about Bia and that alone had me more hooked on the story. I loved Garrett and the way that he was an outsider also but he was also part of the end crowd. This was a great book about although someone can try to crush your spirit sometimes you have to realize when your battle can be won and when you need to step back. I really enjoyed this story and I loved catching up with the gang and reading more about them. I look forward to the next story in this installment
