CLICHÉS
She can't stand them.
Hates them.

But...

Tessa Brooks is strong-willed, sassy, determined, and on the brink of dominating in the testosterone-fueled sport of horse racing. She's spent her life avoiding the norm, staying true to herself to achieve her ultimate goals.

Her relationship with Jace Hitchen, her brother's best friend, just might be the biggest cliché of all. Over the years, he's been her protector, her annoyance, her confidante, her crush. But giving in to what she's really wanted for the last ten years could be the very thing that destroys all she's worked for and wanted. Can Tessa achieve her dreams for the future but still hold on to the past?

Meet the Author

CM Foss is a hopeless romantic with a love for the written word. When she was little, her mom would ration her books so she wouldn’t go through them too quickly. It didn’t matter, she would just re-read. She’s always been an avid equestrian, competing in the top levels of Three Day Eventing by age seventeen. CM now resides in Northern Virginia with her husband and kids where they own and operate their own equestrian business, as well as raising grass-fed, sustainable meats. She doesn’t have this thing people call “free time”, but she does spent a weird amount of time writing, reading, playing with her kids, milking goats, and drinking wine, while avoiding bananas at all costs. Other books by CM Foss include Shiver, Swoon, and City Beautiful.

Sometimes you never know how things will play out... What if you've known all along who your soul mate was? What if you chose a path that made you stray away from any parts of a normal life? You're always pushing yourself to the point of breaking but you still wonder if its enough... meet Tessa brooks Tessa is far from normal and that's just the way she likes it. She is stubborn and has her mind set on what she wants and will do whatever she has to do to achieve it. That is until that one person who has always been there for her, alters her path. Jace has always had a soft spot for Tessa. He's loved her ever since he laid eyes on her. But that's his best friend's sister, so it pretty much no go from the beginning. Over the years his resolves weakens and he just can't escape his true feelings. Tessa and Jace's story is so special. At one moment, I wasn't sure if the relationship was going to happen but when it did... my goodness! Too good to be true! I love this couple so much...Tessa is so stubborn and set in her way and jace is always there to support her no matter what. Cm Foss has yet another masterpiece on her hands! This is a must read!!!!

Oh my, the feels.... my heart is about to burst at the seams from all the happy feels! Jock is super sweet, swoony and sexxxxy! It captures a unique bond of friends to lovers, love story that is down right adorable. It also captures Tess's determination to not only "make it" but dominate in the male oriented, time consuming world of horse racing; the good, the bad and the ugly. Tess aka Midge is sassy, stubborn and ambitious while Jace is fiercely protective, sweet and funny! Jace and Midge's romance will make your heart melt with their quick witted banter and subtle flirting. There is little to no drama or angst. Cm easily creates a beautiful world to get lost in. Her well developed characters are so damn lovable and the plot is extraordinary. The writing is engaging. It flows with such ease, I finished the book in one afternoon! CM Foss once again shows us why she is indeed " THE G.O.A.T."

I'm not sure this woman knows how to write a disappointing novel. CM Foss manages to wrap up your emotions and take you on a journey you just weren't expecting. She plays your feelings like a fiddle, dancing back and forth between heat and sweet, laughter and sympathy like a maestro conducting a symphony. I would never have imagined that a book about a horse jockey would center around such poignant and heartfelt decisions that practically everyone can relate to. I spent this book truly rooting for Tess and Jace. There were so many obstacles for them to overcome, and there were times where I truly felt their hopelessness. To see their problems and concerns played out with such realism and raw emotion was a true pleasure to read. This is yet another book that I need to grace my shelves. Tess and Jace are right up there with my favorite couples, and this is definitely a book that deserves to be read, and then read again.
