Summary from Goodreads:
All Beatriz “Bia” Fernandes wants is to prove herself—to her family and friends—though it’s hard to prove anything with an overbearing father and three famous polo-playing older brothers. After her acceptance into college results in a heated family argument, the Brazilian girl leaves everything behind to find her own American dream.
College life away from home is perfect until the people she believes to be her friends turn on her. With lies and rumors threatening to suffocate her, Bia turns to her only freedom. Riding.
But one thing gets in the way of her escape. Garrett Blackwell and his bad cowboy attitude. Working at the ranch is his obligation, bugging Bia is his newfound hobby. His thick skin and easy grin don’t hide what Bia already knows—this misunderstood and lonely cowboy fights his own demons. Brushing horses’ coats and mucking out stalls shouldn’t be this sexy, and it isn’t long before he becomes a part of her distraction.
However, escaping won’t solve her problems, and it’s up to Bia to break down the fences around her and prove her strength—not to her family and friends, but to herself … and for Garrett. Because standing on her own doesn’t have to mean standing alone.
* Companion novel of Breaking the Reins. Can be read out of order.*
Breaking Fences started a little slow for me, I was worried that with Bia off at college there would be no horses!
Bia has to deal with rumors and drama while starting back at college. She tries to remain strong, not letting the mean Greek girls win, but inside she is hurting. She's afraid to be herself, afraid of what other's will say.
Then Bia meets Garrett - hot, mysterious and wearing cowboy boots. At first I wasn't sure if Garrett was interested in Bia, but once they spend more time on the ranch they grow closer.
Garrett was a mystery - one second he was hot, the next he was cold - and I felt compelled to unravel it.
When Bia and Garrett finally kiss - HOT! The passion between them is so intense, sparks were flying from my kindle.
Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars. The passion between Bia and Garrett will keep you turning the pages. Great for reading at the beach or poolside! Be sure to add Breaking the Reins and Breaking Fences to your To Read list!
