Overview

London Daniels is returning home to Willow Bay, Alberta, on the heels of a televised loss. She blew her shot at the Summer Olympics and cost Canada the gold medal in dressage.

During her years of training abroad, her family's stable has fallen on hard times, and thus, they’ve accepted an offer to board the racehorses of Branson Tucker, the infamous tycoon, for the winter.

London lacks conviction after her ill-fated fall. And as if returning to her hometown to watch her epic failure replay on everyone's big screen isn't torture enough, she’s expected to cater to a man with an ego bigger than her hundred-acre farm just to earn a dime.

Is London saddling up for another ride that will leave both her heart and her ass in the dirt? Or could the handsome, unwanted guest at Willow Bay Stables be her second chance to go for gold?

Dressage wise got some things wrong. 19 hands is really too big for a dressage horse and no 4 yr old horse would be doing Grand Prix dressage. Other not a bad read.

I discovered this author a couple of months ago and have loved every book of I've read so far. This one is no exception. The story starts with London's embarrassing fall at a competition that may end her career. She returns home to her family's stables to recover. The stables have fallen on hard times but a new opportunity can save them. Branson Tucker needs a place to house his horses since his barn burned down. He's read all of the stories about London and is completely drawn to her so there is no other place he can think of for his beloved animals. This is quick insta-love story. This story had it all: romance, angst, humor, and suspense. I loved the dual POV and the introduction to some hilarious characters that I can't wait to read about. I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of this series! *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*

“You don’t know when the love you’ve been waiting for will come your way, but when it does, it’s wise to remember that you aren’t perfect, and neither are they. Forgive, do your best, and when things need a little more fixin’ than that, you’d best change rein.” Change Rein folllows the story of London and Branson. London loves her horses. In fact, it’s that love of horses that takes her to the Summer Olympics. However, an unexpected accident will cost her, her dreams of a gold medal. She’s hurt and embarrassed by her loss. And when she returns home, she can’t escape the her failures. She just wants to hide from everyone and everything. However, fate has other plans and those plans won’t allow her to wallow any longer. See, while she’s been away, her family’s stable has fallen on hard times and there’s a chance they’ll loose everything. That is unless, they take the offer from Branson to board his horses for the winter….Branson has never met London, but has been obsessed with her since he first laid eyes on her. There’s just something about her that calls out to him. He wants her. He needs her. He has to protect her. Will London be able to get past Branson’s ego and give the handsome stranger a chance? Will London be given the second chance that she never expected? Change Rein was a quick and easy read for me. I liked the idea of the story and was pulled in instantly. I was intrigued by the instant connection that Branson had to London. Branson is a complete over the top alpha male. When he set his sights on London, she didn’t even stand a chance. It was really entertaining watching the two of them interact with one another. With Branson around, he was able to bring London back to life and give her back her confidence. Their relationship was definitely an insta-love type, but it worked really well with this book. Not only was this book cute and steamy, but it also had a mystery factor to it. I loved the suspense and if you know me, you know I love trying to figure things out. And there was a really interesting twist, that really took me by surprise. Overall, I found Change Rein to be a really enjoyable read. I really enjoy Anne Jolin’s writing style and her ability to make me fall in love with her characters. Change Rein is a quick read, but hits all the points that I was looking for. Anne Jolin’s alpha males never disappoint and Branson was no exception. If you’re looking for a quick, steamy, cute read with a little suspense thrown in, then look no further. *I was provided an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* My review can also be seen at: http://onceuponabookblog.com/2015/07/...

This is the first book read by this author and I have to say I very much enjoyed this story she wrote. We follow London through her journey of healing after injuring herself and she meets Branson. He is every girls cowboy dream! He is alpha with such a sweet heart. You can feel the chemistry is evident between the two from the first meeting. As well as their banter was amazing. I loved the twists that ended up in this book as well. So not expected. I really enjoyed how this book flowed. It felt seamless and very easy to read. I love that London was so strong willed even after everything that had happened to her. As well as never backing down to Branson. I very much look forward to the next book in the series. Plus it gives me a little taste of home as I grew up in the area the book is based for part of my childhood as well as a proud BC girl! <3

My first Anne Jolin book and I was really impressed with Change Rein. I loved the synopsis for the book. So I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. If you don’t like insta love/lust then this book is probably not for you. This book was so cute. I really liked Branson. I loved that he knew what he wanted and he went after it. I also loved him with his big family. I just wish that there was more of his family in the book. Landon was a great female lead as well. I liked that she loves horses as much as I do. I loved her family too. I’m really excited or her brother and sister’s book. This book is mainly about the romance with the other things the subplot. So if you prefer something other than the romance front and center then this just may not be for you. Overall, I really enjoyed it. I loved the characters and their families. It was cute, quick and just a really enjoyable read.
