Racing Savannah (Hundred Oaks #4) by Miranda Kenneally

(from goodreads.com) 

They’re from two different worlds.

He lives in the estate house, and she spends most of her time in the stables helping her father train horses. In fact, Savannah has always been much more comfortable around horses than boys. Especially boys like Jack Goodwin—cocky, popular and completely out of her league. She knows the rules: no mixing between the staff and the Goodwin family. But Jack has no such boundaries.

With her dream of becoming a horse jockey, Savannah isn’t exactly one to follow the rules either. She’s not going to let someone tell her a girl isn’t tough enough to race. Sure, it’s dangerous. Then again, so is dating Jack…

Okay, I am giving this book 3.5 STARS.

I have been reading Miranda's Hundred Oaks series since the very beginning. It all started with Jordan and Sam, Parker and Will and Kate and Matt. In the fourth installment of the series we are introduced to Savannah, who is a self proclaimed expert at anything to do with horses -especially riding them. We are also introduced to Jack, the eldest of the Goodwin siblings. Savannah has a goal in life, that is to not end up like her father. Being so full in debt and working at age 30+ for minimum wage pay. Jack, is pressured this year because his father has put him in charge of their farm. All decisions fall to him and he is out to prove himself worthy of running the famous Goodwin Ranch. Savannah and Jack's paths collide and now they have to prove themselves to each other and their parents. I enjoyed seeing Savannah stand up for herself and not settling. Jack though at some parts especially the "friends with benefits" scene -I wanted to punch him in the face! Boy! But okay, I'll give him a break here, he sure is one tough guy. Not all 17 yr old guys could've pulled it off. Getting ready for college, going after the girl he wants, putting up with his parents high expectations and sick rich-poor views.  I really enjoyed Roary and Vanessa as well. I'm hoping they get their own book.
All in all this book is a quick read. But I didn't find the characters that intriguing as Jordan and Sam. hehe, you can sorta guess my favorite of the series  That being said. I still think you should pick up a copy for yourself! :)
