Leaping Hearts By JR Ward writing as Jessica Bird

4 Stars

Everyone thinks A. J. Sutherland is crazy to buy a rogue stallion that no rider or trainer has been able to tame. But if anybody has the hustle to make something out of that hell-raiser, it’s A. J. She can’t do it alone, however, so she goes after the great Devlin McCloud, an equestrian legend with a bad leg — and a worse attitude. Devlin recognizes a fighter when he sees one — and that horse isn’t a wallflower, either. Before he knows it, he’s got a wild stallion in his empty stable and a hotheaded, heavenly-bodied rider sleeping on his couch. But can he get all three of them through the championship in one piece? This passion he’s found with his rider is compromising training — and at this level of competition, any distraction is not just unprofessional but downright deadly.... description

My before thoughts; Since JR Ward is one of my favorite authors I am sort of ashamed that I have never read any of her Jessica Bird books. So I have decided to not only read all of her books but read them in the order if their original release. And for that reason I am using the original book cover. 

My Afterthoughts; This book took me a few days to get started due to my kids starting school this week. But, once I got started I couldn't put it down. I was a really great read. Just the right amount of everything and not to much of anything. It was a great light romantic read. As I have said on numerous occasions, I love JR Ward, it was really great reading this and seeing the book that started it all. I will continue on my quest to read all of her books. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did.

Happy Reading!! :-)

  1. Yay--glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. She could put a great spin on a phone book...that's how good she is. You can certainly see her growth as a writer as you read these early works...getting ready for the masterpiece that is Black Dagger Brotherhood.
