Healing, respect, and empathy are what the H&S Ranch promises when helping troubled juveniles. Madison Clark hasn't had much trouble in allowing teens to help care for her recovering horses, but then in walks Jake, a know-it-all 13 year old with a smart mouth and a strong penchant for trouble. What's worse is the trouble trailing behind him - his uptight, opinionated lawyer aunt, Grace Hollings. Madison does her best to ignore her, but focusing solely on Jake isn't always possible.
Grace Hollings is convinced nothing can help her nephew, especially Madison Clark and her feel-good horse ranch. Unfortunately, Jake's presence there is court ordered so Grace does her best to keep an eye on him, and on Madison, who is way more than she originally gave her credit for. Her calm strength and good looks are powerful and just the tip of the iceberg, leaving Grace green with jealousy. Not just because Jake is thriving and has taken to Madison over her, but because Grace is beginning to be taken by the ranch owner as well. Wholeheartedly so.

Sounds like it was recorded in the digestive tract of a narwhal with toothache. Lovely voice characterisation though, and decent plot.
"Less than one star."
UGH! I hated this book. The spoiled rotten teenager, his Aunt running around for him. Did anyone @ Audible put a set of headphones on and listen to this book? The screeching in the beginning is painful. I always expect more when the book is from BSB. Very disappointing.
