Tessa thought buying a share in the dysfunctional Ta' Qali Racehorse Syndicate would be the perfect distraction from a life best forgotten but she doesn't reckon on her horse being deliberately injured. Now the race is on to track down his attacker. But Ta' Qali isn’t the only one up against the clock. Love is threatening to leave without her; and Tessa’s in for the ride of her life... ***WARNING***: To keep it real, some characters engage in sexual activities and use language which some readers might find offensive. From the bestselling author, Hannah Hooton, comes the third installment of the racing romance Aspen Valley Series. “...Tessa shook her head. ‘I don’t do relationships, Sin.’ Sin smacked his lips and shrugged. ‘Okay, then.’ He stood up and walked over to the cupboard to return the first-aid box. Tessa watched him go, bewildered. ‘Okay?’ she echoed. ‘You mean you’re fine with it?’ ‘Would going down on my knees and begging for your affections work?’ Tessa shifted from one foot to the other and pulled a dubious face. ‘Well, no...’ ‘Well, then,’ he said, shrugging on his jacket. ‘I guess there’s little point in continuing this conversation.’...” Tessa thought buying a share in the dysfunctional Ta' Qali Racehorse Syndicate would be the perfect distraction from a life best forgotten. Some are willing to distract her with words of woo, while others are able to distract her with just a nonchalant look. But neither Hugh's flirtations nor Sin's disregard are diversion enough when their horse, Ta’ Qali, is found deliberately injured. Someone close is responsible and Tessa finds herself questioning the innocence of everyone around her. With his nobbler still at large, the race is on to get Ta’ Qali fit and on course in time to prove himself the champion Tessa’s always believed him to be. But he isn’t the only one up against the clock. Love is threatening to leave without her; and win, lose or draw, Tessa’s in for the ride of her life...
Five Boundless Stars
Tessa, has bought into a syndicate for Ta' Qali, who is a horse that you meet in the second book. This syndicate is made of a few different people who have bought the horse, so instead of one owner the horse has many. Ta'Qali is injured and based on the injury, the group is put under investigation. The big question...Who did it? Also along the way she fights her attraction to Sin, one of the members. She tries to hate him, but she finds that hard to do. Tessa seems a bit harsh at the start, but along the way she starts feeling more for the horse and it shows a softer side to her in my opinion. As the book proceeds I grew to like her more, while at the first I didn't so much. Share & Share Alike was different then the first two books. The love and caring for these animals is very much present. I have always been an animal lover and this book really tugged at my heart over Ta'Qali. Besides the love of the animals, this book really brought a good mystery. Who hurt Ta'Qali? Why? What's the motive? It really made it hard to put down. I have to say that while this book was different it was also very good. I absolutely loved the ending. It was a funny and romantic end to the book. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
