This book has such great characters, Sadie and Howler are so complex and so well written . Sadie has been through a lot being the only girl in the family , she had to become hard and just as strong as the boys . Which in her life has helped her but also made her closed off to everyone . I truly loved her grit and deterimination to keep the ranch going . As you see her with Howler you see her fight and run like a scared filly but she starts to come around and you can see her start to fall in love. She softens up and becomes the woman that Howler can't stay away from . Howler well he is just is oh so alpha, he is strong , sexy and you will want to climb him like a spider monkey . There is a softer side to him that you see when you see him with Sadie and with the horses . I truly love how complex he is and he is lovable in a domineering sort of way .
There are such a variety of characters in this book and you will love each and everyone of them. Ben the hired hand is such a sweet old guy who is like a grandfather to everyone The horses also play a big part in the book and for this horse girl is very satisfying .
I was so excited when I started reading this book and found out it was on a horse ranch and the horse ranch actually had paints on them . I am partial to paints so anything with a paint horse has my attention . The story is complex and takes us on a journey . The characters are also my age and the female character is actually 3 years older then the male . Which I love cause I can connect with them better then the young naive girl and the older man . I like the tribal aspect of the story line , the author delves into the tribal aspect with a respect and reverence . I really loved this book and you should check it out and put it on your summer reading challenge
