Review: Wild Hearts (Hamilton Stables #2) by Melissa West

In the lush heart of Kentucky, horse racing is king, and the Hamilton family is royalty, born to produce champions. Maybe that’s because they understand wildness better than most…

Charming, reckless, and restless, youngest brother Alex Hamilton has a reputation for sweet talking his way into any woman’s arms—and failing at anything to do with the family business. So when he commits to managing their new breeding operation, it’s under one condition: he’ll focus on work and nothing else—no distractions, no fun…no women. But just when Alex has promised to keep his hands to himself, sweet, sexy Kate Littleton gallops away with his heart…

Kate knows Alex isn’t the long-term type—he proved that in a lot of delicious ways when they first met more than a year ago. But seeing him blazing with new dedication to Hamilton Stables, she can’t deny that he’s miles ahead of any other man who interests her. The attraction between them is electric right out of the gate, but it will take an unexpected loss to put them back in the race and headed for a passionate future together…

Terri's Thoughts

** I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher Lyrical Shine via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is February 16th 2016**

This is the second story is the Hamilton Stables series.  As mentioned in the Goodreads synopsis, it is a stand alone however it appears the characters in each installment are the Hamilton brothers.  So read it as a series or by itself, the enjoyment factor will be there regardless.

If you are looking for a contemporary romance that is not too long than this is the story for you.  It offers the sizzling chemistry, the misunderstood "bad boy", the "good girl" and plenty of angst.  Also, you have horses in the mix and you have the recipe for an enjoyable read.

The romance between Alex and Kate is believable from the beginning.  Although you pretty much know the formula and how it will play out, the story didn't feel like a clone of others in the genre.  Due to the short length I can not go in to too much details or I will give away the story.

If you like this genre of book and do not want to commit too much time then this is the book for you.  Long enough to have some substance yet short enough that you can fit it in to your busy schedule.
