    "I saw the movie when it first came out. Actually, I saw the movie a few times. I loved it! So when my book club decided they were going to read the book, I was disappointed having already seen the movie. But it’s true what they say. Movies can’t do a good book justice. Even really good movies. What I’m trying to say is I love the book even more."

    "While the idea is appealing, the theme needs more input. Consider the former world-class equestrian aspect a little bit more and revolve the concept around it. The broken past just doesn't seem as relevant here and sounds a bit odd.. "

    "This book is a great thrill ride. I was looking for just a fun book to sit down with last Summer, something that would take me on an adventure and this one hit the spot. I grew up racing so this is kind of my jam, I can very easily imagine the race and what the characters feel since I went through it myself, but even if you don't have a background like me this is still a fun read I'm sure."
