The Wild Ones by Michelle Leighton

Book description (via Amazon):

Passion as hot as midnight in the South and love as wild as the horses they tame.

Camille “Cami” Hines is the darling daughter of the South’s champion thoroughbred breeder, Jack Hines. She has a pedigree that rivals some of her father’s best horses. Other than feeling a little suffocated at times, Cami thought she was pretty happy with her boyfriend, her life and her future.

But that was before she met Patrick Henley.

“Trick” blurs the lines between what Cami wants and what is expected of her. He’s considered the “help,” which is forbidden fruit as far as her father is concerned, not to mention that Trick would be fired if he ever laid a hand on her. And Trick needs his job. Desperately. His family depends on him.

The heart wants what the heart wants, though, and Trick and Cami are drawn to each other despite the obstacles. At least the ones they know of.

When Trick stumbles upon a note from his father, it triggers a series of revelations that could ruin what he and Cami have worked so hard to overcome. It turns out there’s more to Trick’s presence at the ranch than either of them knew, secrets that could tear them apart.

**MATURE CONTENT ADVISORY: May not be suitable for younger readers**

Trick puts his dreams on hold to help out his mom and sis by working with horses; breeding and racing. He meets Cami, the boss’ daughter, and the two of them are instantly attracted to each other. Of course the boss tells Trick to stay away from Cami but it might be for a reason beyond his role of overprotective father. Can they work things through despite all the obstacles?

I loved Trick and Cami and felt the chemistry between the two. I was also fond of their best friends, Jenna and Rusty and hope they eventually get a book written for them too! The chapters alternate between Trick’s and Cami’s POV, which works well for me. I love different POVs. Though it got a bit distracting in the middle of the story’s climax, it didn’t take away from the storyline. The ending was a little rushed for me but I guess it’s typical to want more, especially when you get so wrapped up in the story. I was hoping for more character development with their parents and whether they truly accepted everything or not. And how they all got past… well, the past.
