Breaking the Reins by Juliana Haygert Book Review

Raise your hand if you get sick of reading big long reviews. I for one do so for todays book review we are going to a condensed version of pro and cons of the book today. So now for your enjoyment I present my review of Breaking the Reins by Juliana Haygert
*new adult

Breaking the Reins (The Breaking Series, #1)Horses, mansions, tea parties, and lies are twenty-year-old Hannah Taylor’s life. To others, her family and her relationship with Eric is perfect. But she knows the truth. She lives it.

After a fire takes her grandma's life and kills her horse, Hannah's immaculate life spirals out of control. Her father disapproves of her decision to run her grandma’s ranch instead of focusing solely on learning the family business; Animal Control brings her Argus, a mistreated horse that she can't turn away even though she's not ready for another horse; and her boyfriend, Eric Bennett, a world famous polo player, becomes possessive and authoritarian. Despite her best efforts to disguise it, Hannah grows wary of him.

Then, Leonardo Fernandes struts onto the polo scene. A cocky rookie with a messy life of his own, he’s drawn to Hannah and isn’t afraid of showing it, even when Eric makes it clear she is his and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep it that way. Hannah suffers for Eric’s jealousy. The abuse only gets worse when Leo steals the title of best polo player in the world from Eric.

But the title isn’t enough for Leo. He wants Hannah too, and she can’t deny her attraction to him either. Somehow, she must find a way to break free from abusive Eric before he breaks every bone in her body.

Pros: The main character was down to earth and very relatable. Additionally, I like  how all the issues were very realistic to the age group and that no one person was prefect in this story. Plus, who doesn't love reading about horses. The storyline had a nice flow and was very easy to get into. The bilingual aspect of the book was also fascinating and I picked up a few words of Portuguese.

Cons: Being someone who has trained horses there were a couple horse related moments that made me shake my head. I also noticed a couple time where the story seemed to keeping bringing up the same issues but I guess that life for you.
