He loves me…
Not anymore. That was twenty years ago. I hardly think of Nick now. Seriously. I’m too busy training horses and trying to keep a roof over my head. Now they say I never met a horse, or a man, I couldn’t ride, which is a little catty but mostly true.
Until I do.
When Napoleon, a rangy gelding with a bad reputation, tosses me to the ground, my life literally flashes before my eyes. I swear the tangled knot of regrets and missed opportunities go parading past me like thoroughbreds at auction. When I come to, I’m shocked to discover I’m dressed in a fancy riding habit, and a corset, and I’m eighteen—again. But when Lord Nicholas Stanhope walks in the room looking like my Nick, dressed and sounding like he just stepped out of a Jane Austen novel… I’m on a mission.
I don’t care if this is a dream, or painkillers, or-or reincarnation. I won’t give up on this second chance. I won’t stop until…he loves me.
I’m just going to keep this review short and sweet. Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. I really liked the concept of it, mixing modern times with the past, and the whole time-travel factor. I thought it was unique and interesting. I enjoyed the characters and how well our leading lady adapted to what happened to her. I thought the characters had some good chemistry and loved the idea of rediscovering a lost love.
However, I did have some issues with this story. As much as I enjoyed the idea and concept of the book, I had a lot of issues with the writing. I found the writing to be very rough and in need of some work. That factor was definitley distracting for me. I also felt like there were still some unanswered questions plotwise after I finished the book.
So, while this book wasn’t a 100% hit for me, I do think this author has some great potential and that’s why I bumped my rating up to 3 stars. I’m happy to have given this book a chance and would be open to checking out another book from this author in the future.
