5 stars for A Horse of a Different Color by Halle Kenton #romcom #romanticcomedy #romance #bookreview

Title: A Horse of a Different Color

Author: Halle Kenton

Genre: Romantic Comedy, Enemies to Lovers Romance


Book Blurb:


When stable owner Cheyenne Modine meets vet Jack Carter, it’s hate at first sight. He may look like the sexiest man alive but his arrogance tells her he’s a privileged member of the elite Lexington, Kentucky, Thoroughbred world.


Cheyenne Modine is exactly Jack’s type—a smoking hot woman who loves horses—but her slurred speech calls up childhood memories of living with an alcoholic father, and Jack isn’t about to travel that road again. After several chance encounters, the fireworks between them become a contest to see who touches who first.


Can Jack and Cheyenne overcome their mistaken first impressions or will their gallop to the finish line end in murder by horseshoe?


My Review:


Cheyenne’s hatred of Jack only fuels her passion. Is Jack the man for her or did she have it right when they first met? A Horse of a Different Color is a romantic comedy for the ages. Sizzling chemistry, hilarious dialogue, and a gorgeous setting blend together to create an unputdownable read. Oh, and lots of antics featuring horses. Saddle up, A Horse of a Different Color is here to make you laugh and fall in love.


Let’s start with the characters. From the start, I like Cheyenne. She loves horses and needs help. She’s got a chip on her shoulder and is snarky. She’s such fun to read. I love the reaction she gets from Jack. She’s a fiery heroine who must swallow her pride. The chemistry between her and Jack is undeniable.


The narration is well-detailed and deep, allowing the reader to get inside the minds of Cheyenne and Jack. Every scene is immersive in detail and emotion which makes for excellent reading.


The romance is classic rom com with barbs flying and snarky dialogue. This is a feast for readers who love enemies-to-lovers romance. Think Helen Fielding, only American with horses.


My Rating: 5 stars
