This is the first novel of Jennifer Seasons that I've read, but I can confidently say that I will be reading all of her previous releases. She caught me by surprise with Getting Lucky, and I loved every single page of it.

SYNOPSIS:
Welcome to Fortune, Colorado—where the air is clean, the men are rugged, and the all the good ones… are bachelors.
 
Born into the infamous Charlemagne equestrian empire, Shannon has been raised to do whatever it takes for the family business. Even if it means going undercover and digging up dirt on a competitor. It's easy enough when she believes he's a bad guy whose success seems too good to be true. In fact, Shannon's excited to put the aggravatingly sexy Irishman in his place and get back in her father's good graces. All she needs is to stay focused on the goal… and out of Sean Muldoon's arms.
 
From stealing a thoroughbred racehorse from the Irish mob to striking gold in the mountains of Colorado, there's little Sean hasn't experienced. But when it comes to resisting his hot new stable manager, he's out of luck. With the mob hot on his heels, keeping Shannon off their radar is all but impossible, and he's not about to put her in danger too. Sean wants Shannon, but how can he offer her a future… when he can't even guarantee tomorrow?
 
CHARACTER BACKGROUND:
Sean Muldoon is a man with a bad past. He grew up in a bad town in Ireland, and had to fight hard to live. But now he's living a better life, one where he sees Shannon fitting perfectly in and completing the picture.
 
Shannon Charlemagne is the good daughter. She's been good at keeping her head down and doing what she's told since she was a kid. But meeting Sean and being in Fortune, Colorado made her want to be better, stronger, and free.  
 
TO LOVE:
I was enthralled with this book. From a technical aspect, it was well-written, there were no typo errors or whatnot, and the ending and starting of a chapter is smooth. Now on a more personal level, I loved the characters, both main and support. They were different yet the same. They offer lots if color and life in the story, and it made the setup of Fortune, Colorado that more interesting. Jennifer Seasons' successfully paved the set for this series, and I can't wait for the other two installments.

This novel had the right amount of humor, romance, friendship, action, suspense, sexy, and dirty. It's well-balanced and so are the characters. The twist in the plot was not something I saw coming. At all. I loved the dialogue, especially the exchange between Shannon and Colleen. It's like the perfect sister banter.
 
TO BLEH:
I just didn't like the fact that animals were being hurt here. Sure it's not in real life, I know that, but it makes me sad nonetheless. Maybe less animal pain in future books. *pleading eyes*
 
SUMMARY:
I didn't give much details, and this review is more general because the plot is very twisted and I don't want to spoil it for others. This is a fantastic read and deserves 5 stars. I recommend this to everyone!
