Overview

All bets are off in this heartfelt romance by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.

After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit, he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.

How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll be there only long enough to break it?

So Harper and Aidan agree: try to keep it professional, and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way, they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And, as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.

This is the final book in the Stay series and what a great way to finish and round off the series. All Roads Lead To You is an emotional read with strong characters who you can’t help loving. Harper Bishop runs a rescue farm for abused and neglected animals of all sorts, shapes and sizes and one of her rescues is a thoroughbred horse named Phoenix. Harper is focused on getting Phoenix healthy and trusting humans again which may in turn lead the horse making a comeback to the racetrack but she doesn’t have all the skills needed to train a racehorse, lucky for her one of the guests at the family B&B is a Irish trainer on his holidays. Aidan Connor is trying to work out where he wants to be and what the future holds for him and helping out with Phoenix could be the perfect distraction as he works his life out......... This book has all the feels, it’s emotional, it has characters that have depth and it’s a captivating read with some adorable lines as we get to know all the animals at the farm. This book is beawrutten and I highly recommend it for all romance lovers.

The characters were strong and well developed, not only the main characters, but also the secondary characters who I hope get their own stories soon. All Roads Lead To You is a well written, emotional story with hot and sizzling scenes, as well as a great deal of humour and wonderful characters. I really liked Harper and Aidan from the start. Harper Bishop runs a rescue farm for neglected and abused animals and is focused on returning her thoroughbred Phoenix back to health and perhaps to race. The only problem is she lacks the experience and skills needed to achieve this. Aidan O’Connor is on vacation from Ireland staying at the Bishop family B & B and farm in New York’s Hudson Valley. He is trying to decide what is next in his future after parting walls with his ex partner. A horse trainer, he has the skills needed to help Harper train Phoenix to reach his potential. Aidan and Harper connect from the first, but neither are prepared to open themselves up to the possibility of a relationship so they agree to focus on Phoenix. However as they get to know each other, they realise how much they have in common; with attraction and passion soon igniting. Harper knows it is dangerous to develop feelings for Aidan, after all he will be going back to Ireland so any relationship can only be temporary. Will she take a chance and risk her heart? Will Aidan’s lack of trust mean that he throws away the chance of love and happiness? Or will Phoenix and the other rescued animals help both Harper and Aidan to learn trust and find love? I was captivated with this story from the first to the last chapter.

NARRATORS: Amy Landon & Stephen Graybill I've really enjoyed this highly entertaining series, I'm assuming this is the last one in the series in that all three siblings have had their HEA, but who knows! This was probably my favourite of the three as it dealt with Harper and her rescue animals, especially horses (no animals died!). Harper has always been the sibling who was happy with her own company and that of her rescue animals, not interested in a relationship and keeping herself to herself most of the time, until she met Irish Aiden and things started to change. Aiden is a horse trainer and had done really well in his native Ireland until an issue with his partner had forced him into leaving the partnership and moving to the USA to hopefully start again. Once there he booked himself into a B&B on a farm for some rest and to think about his future, and the B&B happened to be run by Ophelia (previous book), Harper's sister, where Harper also ran her animal/horse rescue operation. Aiden is bored, however, and soon gets involved with the horses and Harper, and especially a rescue horse called Phoenix that Harper is hoping to enter into races, once she's got him over his phobias. Aiden immediately feels that Phoenix is a really special horse with winning potential, and once he gets Harper and her family to agree to him training Phoenix they set off on the road to getting him trained correctly and entering him into big races. Of course as things progress Aiden and Harper get closer and agree to a no-strings romance which they both know will end once Aiden gets itchy feet and leaves at some point. There's lots going on with the horse training/racing and the romance between Harper and Aiden, with certain secrets Aiden has kept from Harper coming out later in the book, with a few hiccups along the way before a really lovely ending. We get to meet the fabulous quirky Hei-Hei again (mad chicken!) and amongst the rest of the animals there is also a really cute rescue goat called Captain Hoof added to the mad mix of Harper's menagerie. I loved all the animals, and there are plenty in this story! I'm not sure if there will be any other books in this series, but if not I'm going to really miss visiting the Bishop family and their farm, it's been an extremely enjoyable series that I would highly recommend.

Ok, I will be honest, the first part of this book just seemed to drag on and on for me. I mean, not bad enough to not finish or anything but I thought I had just a so-so book on my hands. Then I hit about the half way mark and oh boy did things turn around. We got horse racing, a goat dressed in a chicken costume named Captain Hoof and two people who started being real with each other. It was nice to see the chemistry come alive for Harper and Aidan and watching them slowly heal from past hurts. Overall I really enjoyed this book.

What a wonderful love story, written by an amazing author! All Roads Lead to You is the 3rd book in the Stay series by author Jennifer Probst. This whole series has been so enjoyable! “Something was coming” This love story between Harper, an animal rescuer, and Aiden, a horse trainer, is a slow-burning love story centered on Phoenix, a rescued horse destined to race that has bonded with Harper. The setting of this story is continued from the previous stories in the series at the family-run bed and breakfast. This is a story of broken souls, finding “the one”, overcoming secrets, and healing. Jennifer Probst writes fantastic characters and storylines! This one can be read as a standalone, but the characters are continued from books 1 & 2 and I personally would recommend reading them in order! I really loved this book, and am looking forward to the next release in the series, Something Just Like This! 5 racing stars!

All Roads Lead to You by Jennifer Probst is a great addition to the Stay series. When I received an invitation from the publisher, via Net-Galley, I eagerly accepted since I’ve read the first two in the series. My opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way. I quickly became engaged in the story. I remembered the heroine from the previous books, and I was so glad when I realized All Roads Lead to You was Harper’s story. The novel follows her desire to heal Phoenix, an abused race horse she believes has the ability to win the triple crown. The story is well written and emotionally charged. The pacing is excellent and kept me engaged from the first page to the last. Harper Bishop’s character is endearing. Her tenacity and determination to save abused and neglected animals is amazing. While she has always guarded her heart and never expected to fall in love, she can’t resist her new horse trainer with dark Irish good looks and his gentle manner with her beloved animals. Aidan O’Connor is a great hero. His determination to train Phoenix so he can race, borders on obsession, but in a good way. He doesn’t give up when the horse bulks in his first race. Instead, he is driven to find out what is causing his issues, and he does. He’s no more ready for a relationship than Harper is. Afterall, he’s been betrayed by his ex-lover, and his best friend. The chemistry is strong between Harper and Aidan and sparks fly from their first meeting and only grow stronger as the story progresses. They might have wanted to only have a professional relationship, but the passion is way too strong for either of them to deny. I really wanted them to find a way to make it work. If you enjoy contemporary romance with plenty of heart and great characters, then you will love All Roads Lead to You. Not only is it a great love story, the animals will steal your heart, especially the goat. Happy reading!

Captain Hoof stole the show! Hands down the best secondary character in this book and he isn't even human! Besides his awesome name, his adorable description, and his gentle soul, he is a hero! As much as I want my to tell you all his awesomeness, you are more worried about the book...for now. All Roads Lead to You is a truly romantic story. A hiding in plain sight romance. Fighting the chemistry, fighting the friendship, keep it professional kind of romance. The unavoidable, unstoppable, inevitable romance that both keeps you warm and make who I wish for more. (Also, I might suggest tissues.) Animal lovers, even the kind that only love fictional animals, will be highly entertained with the antics in these pages. It was also fun to learn about racing. The best thing about All Roads Lead to You (other than Captain Hoof) was the love oozing from the pages. It is not possible not to be taken in by the voice whispering in your ear...FOREVER. Enjoy Aiden and Harper! This story deserves a placing in the race right next to Phoenix. A ring of roses for the happy couple!

This book was a true pleasure to read. I wasn’t through the first chapter and I already knew I was gonna love it. It actually had me tingling all over. Some books do have that effect. That buzz is no less than being halfway drunk. Harper and Aidan were brought together by Phoenix, a horse with too many quirks and a completely delightful mix of animals on the farm. They had different tactics but were great together as a team. Their learning curve was an amazing journey where they learnt their lessons together, pushed each other’s boundaries, struggled through mini battles and worked around a delicate balance of respecting each other. Keen on maintaining a professional relationship, they were off limits to each other. However, that buzzing attraction wasn’t letting it stay strictly business. Probst honed the fine art of bantering and I thoroughly enjoyed the verbal sparring between the lead characters throughout the book. I cannot stress enough how much I loved Harper and Aidan. They had captivating personalities that shaped the story rather nicely. Side characters were adorable here and added to the richness of the story. It was like a castle of cards, where all the cards held the story together. Animals were a deeply ingrained part of the story. There were endless moments of joy molded by the bizzare acts of these peculiar animals. Writing was simply exquisite. Oh yes! I was smiling all the way through. I am glad I could be part of Harper’s, Aidan’s and Phoenix’s quest for victory. Probst can raise me in her fan list a little closer to the top.

Another great read and another great installment in this series! Several laugh out loud moments - gotta love the goat! Great characters that you connect with and root for. Fun, light summer read. Definitely recommend this entire series. Thank you #negalley and #montalkeromance for the eARC.

So sorry to see this series come to an end. Although they were each exceptional I have to say this one was my favorite. Aside from bringing back my own childhood memories of the horse racing circuit the love Jennifer Probst shows for rescues is heartwarming. She is a rare gem. Her words are written with so much love you cannot help but fall for each of her characters, animals included. It makes you want to go out and adopt one today. This story was such an amazing story. Aiden and Harper are perfect for each other. Both are so guarded. He understands her like no one ever has. The patience, determination and love they both had for the rescues made this story extra special. You will fall in love from the first word and find it hard to put down until the last. Another winner from Jennifer Probst. Cannot wait to see what she comes out with next.

Escaping Ireland after a betrayal he doesn’t think he can ever get over, Aidan O’Connor, arrives at a B&B in the New York Hudson Valley. One of the things that drew him to this location, is the rescue horse center at the B&B. Aidan has trained horses all his life, to become the best in racing. Now he’s looking for the next Secretariat to add to his belt of accomplishments. Investigating his surroundings, Aidan comes across a magnificent horse in a stall separated by all the other horses. He can sense this horse has been abused, just by his behavior towards him, but he can see the spirit this animal has. Harper Bishop is proud to run her horse rescue farm, along with her brother who handles all the trail rides for the B&B. Her latest rescue, Phoenix, is going to be extremely difficult to train with the abuse he received by his last owner. If only she could find someone with the knowledge of training race horses, When she meets their new guest, Aidan, he makes them a proposition to train Phoenix and get him ready for the Triple Crown. There’s only one problem, the chemistry between Aidan and her is electrifying. How can she keep this business as usual when he keeps trying for more. This is another hit for Jennifer Probst! I received a copy of this arc in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third installment in this WONDERFUL series and oh it is so, so, SO good and well worth the wait. Harper Bishop owns and runs the family Bed and Breakfast along with her sisters but her love in the rescue farm and especially Phoenix the thoroughbred who she thinks could be a contender for the triple crown. The only problem, she needs a trainer. Luckily, there is a newcomer to the inn and he is more than expected. Hot and brooding and with an Irish brogue and he is a horse trainer by trade. Aidan O'Connor has come to America for a much needed vacation. Burnout has him questioning his life but then he gets a look at Phoenix and he has a whole new outlook. But wait! Then he and Harper come together and the chemistry is off the charts. Oh, that is something they were not expecting and neither wanted to happen. Such a well thought out story and well told with all the characters from the previous books and some new ones too, both two legged and four legged! Even if you didn't read the first two books, you have to read this one! **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

All Roads Lead To You is book 3 of the Stay series. I had not read the other books in the series prior to this story, but it did not affect my ability to enjoy Harper and Aidan's story. What worked for me: Open and respectful dialogue between the hero and heroine. I appreciated that the dark moment on their path to HEA wasn't overdramatized. The heroine took the time to recognize why the hero chose to omit information and also recognized that his actions up to that point proved he was a man of integrity. There was no extended "punishment" for his omission. Adulting done right! Bravo! Slow burn HEA with great chemistry. The hero was respectful and consent was sexy! Strong sibling ties. I enjoyed the banter and camaraderie of the group, as well as their ability to support one another in their dreams. The animals-cue all the happy sighs about cute animals that get their happy ending. What didn't work for me: Animal Rescue & Horse Racing. But…I just said that worked. Allow me to clarify. I found the interactions with the animals entertaining (Loved Hei Hei, Capt. Hoof, and Phoenix), but they often took the focus off of the HUMAN relationship, i.e. the romance that was developing between Aidan and Harper. I found myself skimming some of those scenes and felt as though the romance suffered and became more tell vs show at the expense of the number of scenes spent on horse racing. There is a scene when the heroine attempts to manipulate a volunteer with the animal rescue that bothered me enough to make me stop reading, highlight the section, and place a note to myself. It seemed so opposite her character type. Later in the scene she was straightforward about what she needed to be done, completely negating the need for the manipulation that had occurred. Overall thoughts: There were moments during this book where I was all-in, but unfortunately I'd get pulled out of the HEA mindset when the focus shifted to horse racing. As a fan of the sport, I love a great story about a horse that's come from nothing and is storming the horse world, but I feel as though the subject matter sort of stole the show. I loved Aidan and honestly think of this book as more his and Phoenix's story than his and Harper's. Aidan had a great character arc and I enjoyed following along as he began to recognize what it was that he truly wanted from life. I give this book a solid three stars and plan to read the follow up with the first two books in the series. I received a complimentary review copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions about the book are my own.

4 1/2 Racing Stars! Harper gave up on love a long time ago ... besides she’d rather be with the animals she rescued. But when Aiden comes to the family’s bed & breakfast, she has a feeling everything is about to change. Aiden just wants to get back in the winners circle and when he sees Phoenix (a rescued horse) run, he knows the horse is special and could be his ticket back. But everything changes when starts to fall for the horse’s beautiful owner. I loved Harper in the first two books and couldn’t wait for her story ... and I wasn’t disappointed. And Aiden ... who wouldn’t love a guy like him whispering in your ear like he did to the horses. All the characters are just so realistic and the banter between made me laugh out loud. This book had all the emotions ... it made me laugh, cry, and swoon. Not only do I recommend this book ... but I recommend the whole series! I received an early copy courtesy of Montlake Romance through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

This is the cutest story about how a spirited, emotionally healing racehorse quality horse brings together two hurt people. Both Aidan and Harper know there is a time limit to their relationship and are wary to cross lines until they can tolerate it no longer. Aiden may one day return to his Irish home leaving Harper to recover from what could be the greatest love of her life. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

An excellent conclusion to this series I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My thoughts and opinions are my own and without bias or remuneration.

I had read and enjoyed the previous books in this series, but I especially loved this synopsis. I love love loved Harper and Aidan. They’re both a little guarded and maybe too prickly, but they have reasons and it absolutely works for their relationship. The animals were a fantastic set of characters and I enjoyed having them as a constant in the scenes. Plot wise, it was the slowest of slow burns I’ve ever read and it was glorious. I was drowning in UST and chemistry and didn’t want it to stop. Harper and Aidan are open with each other and have conversations and it was refreshing to see how that played out. The conflict is nearly non-existent and the time passed quickly when I wanted it to. Overall, it was the best of the three and a story I know I’ll be reading again. **Huge thanks to Montlake for providing the arc free of charge**

Slow burn, instant attraction, afraid to give into temptation, animal lover romantic readers will likely enjoy this horse racing themed tale. It features a destined to be together main couple, Aidan and Harper, who connect and bond over their common interest in horses and big dreams. With cameos of all the characters and even one feisty chicken from the previous two books, the whole gang is here, folks. They added to the “feels like the home I’ve always wanted” pull that lured Aidan to let his wanderlust soul and feet stick around long enough to work his Irish magic on Harper’s rescue race horse. As usual this author held my attention and had me holding my breath until enough was enough and these two wanna be lovebirds finally allowed themselves to temporarily have what they thought they never would. Fortunately for us and them, love had bigger, long term plans for them. Brace yourself for the graphic steamy smexy scenes that occur in the latter half of the book as all that pented up chemistry and passion gets unleashed. I must say I didn’t understand why the jockey was scripted to talk so peculiar (like a caveman). For me, it detracted needlessly from his character. Sure, I could see making him stand out somewhat eccentric with his unique way of connecting with horses. Honestly though, I was embarrassed for this side sub-character. I lowered my rating one star because of it and for the reason revealed Harper never wanted to marry and have children. It just didn't seem drastic enough to reach that sort of decision. Here’s to hoping the upcoming release of “Something Just Like This” will be as equally entertaining and romantic. It will feature a NY governor wanna be and his off limits assistant, who travels with him to this upstate horse farm. Book 1 - The Start of Something Good Book 2 - A Brand New Ending Book 3 - All Roads Lead to You Book 3.5 - Something Just Like This Title: All Roads Lead to You, Series: Stay (Book 3), Author: Jennifer Probst, Pages: 329, stand-alone but part of a series, slow burn, very graphically steamy later in the book, something to prove good guy hero, animal rescuer heroine, no love triangle, no OW/OM drama, no cheating, romance safe, no cameos of past lovers.

All Roads Lead To You is a soulful marvel of a book, one that takes hold of you, that grips and you never ever want to let it go! Wow!!! I thought I read every from author Jennifer Probst, that quite honestly would make my knees buckle and leave my h heart full of love! But there's nothing like “All Roads Lead to You” at all!! I can say I was utterly blown away by the depth and soul in this novel! FYI if you need more of Harper and Aidan then check out the audiobook.

She was complete all by herself. This is the first line that I highlighted in this book ( there were many more) but this one sets the tone. As a reader who loves horses, dogs and Ireland I was more than thrilled with this story line, the family, the business, the new and returning characters and the message of hope and redemption., Harper and Aidan both follow their heart and their roads intersect beautifully.

All Roads Lead to You allows the lone single Bishop to find her happily ever after. A slow-burn romance that tackles some heartfelt issues. Harper is a bright light in the world pouring her heart and soul into the rescue and rehabilitation of abused animals. While her life is fulfilling and provides her with a sense of accomplishment it isn’t without a downside. Harper has a problem with social interaction stemming from a dark time in her life, while it helps her relate to the animals she has in her care, it does also make her a little lonely for the humankind of interaction. Firmly believing she is not made for relationships including marriage and children. Aidan is very similar to Harper in a lot of ways including emotionally. His childhood and young independence have left him with a lot of subconscious emotional scars. Having left Ireland under difficult circumstances, Aidan is looking to make a name for himself within the horse racing world in the US enabling a triumphant return to his homeland. Aidan and Harper are both guided by their intuition and it is this sixth sense that has brought Aidan to the Bishop family’s B&B. There is an immediate connection between Aidan and Harper as if they instinctually sense a kindred spirit; although there is a fair amount of denial on both parts as they get to know each other. However, the more time they spend together the deeper their bond grows. Especially when their thoughts, actions, and feelings toward the animals entrusted to their care intersect. Aidan and Harper could truly be described as soul-mates; each of the trials and tribulations they have faced through their lives shaped them into the perfect partner to each other While I enjoyed seeing the romance blossom between Harper and Aidan, as well as catching up with the rest of the Bishops; the true stars of the story were the wonderfully quirky rescue animals, especially Hei Hei, the mad polish chicken, and Captain Hoof, the half-blind goat. I wish I could see a photo of him in his chicken costume

With his irresistible Brogue, warm smile and soothing touch, is definitely A major distraction! This book definitely gave me all the feels! It’s a little different than what I normally read but I really really liked it! It was still really hot LOL but it was funny and heartwarming and even heartbreaking at some point!

Romance, wounded characters and wounded animals combine to make a lovely story. Aidan O’Connor has suffered a deep betrayal from his best friend and business partner. He has also lost his career as a top horse trainer in Ireland. He’s come to New York’s Hudson River Valley to recover. By chance he ends up at the Bed and Breakfast that Harper’s family runs along with the horse rescue ranch that she runs. Harper has always figured that she isn’t cut out for romance, but she can’t help be attracted to the sexy Aidan who also shares her love of horses. Together they pair up to prepare the horse she and her brother had rescued to compete in the Triple Crown. If you like tender romances between complex characters, you’ll enjoy this novel. And if you like a good horse story, you’ll also love this novel. Either way, this is a winner.

Jennifer Probst brings us the third book in the Stay series. Harper and Aidan bring us into the world of animal rescues and lovers alike. Ethan, Ophelia, and Harper Bishop own and operate Robin's Nest B & B and the horse-rescue farm in the town of Gardiner. Aidan O'Connor of Kildare, Ireland is a horse trainer looking for a fresh start. Harper and Aidan see the potential of leading her rescued horse Phoenix to the Triple Crown. As they all work together, Harper and Aidan must see if they can get past the hurt, betrayal, and mistrust and find what they have both been looking for in each other. Or will they allow the past to dictate their future and pass up on the opportunity of a lifetime? Jennifer Probst gave us Ethan and Ophelia's stories and now focuses on their sister and her passion for rescuing animals. She also brings us into the world of horse racing. She shows us two individuals who are reluctant to trust anyone because of past hurts and see if they can not only heal the animals in their care, but also themselves to be open to the love that surounds them. I enjoyed seeing these two avoid and dance around each other. Even though her siblings are part of the story, you do not need to read the other two books to understand and see their love for each other. They add to the richness of the story and a way for Harper and Aidan to realize that love is not always scary and hurtful. It can heal, bring joy, and lessen the burdens life throws at you. I enjoyed reading Harper and Aidan's story and I look forward to a new adventure with Jennifer Probst. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I would like to thank NetGalley and Montlake Romance for this privilege.

3.75 stars--ALL ROADS LEAD TO YOU is the third instalment in Jennifer Probst’s contemporary adult STAY erotic, romance series. This is rescue farm owner Harper Bishop, and Irish horse trainer Aidan O’ Connor’s story line. ALL ROADS LEAD TO YOU can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information form the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Harper and Aidan) ALL ROADS LEAD TO YOU follows horse trainer, Irishman Aidan O’Connor as he looks for his next challenge. Having left Ireland under mysterious circumstance, Aidan finds himself in New York’s Hudson Valley, at the Bishop family B&B, where his future is about to change. Enter animal rescuer and rehabber Harper Bishop, and the woman with whom Aidan will fall in love. What ensues is the professional and romantic relationship between Aidan and Harper, and the potential fall –out as neither one is looking for a permanent relationship beyond the present. Harper Bishop struggles with Phoenix, a difficult horse whose abusive past has left him skittish and broken. Meeting Aidan O’Connor finds Harper reconsidering Phoenix’s future, as well as her own future with the man with whom she will fall in love. As Aidan begins training Phoenix for a run at the Derby, Harper begins to let down the walls surrounding her heart. The relationship between Aidan and Harper is one of immediate attraction but neither one is in a place for romance or love. Aidan has been burned by his former partner, and lover; and Harper’s past doesn’t allow her to trust the ministrations of a man who is only in America for a limited time. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are reintroduced to Harper’s sister and B&B owner Ophelia Bishop and Kyle Kimpton (A Brand New Ending#2), Ethan Bishop and his wife Mia: f summer ranch hands Chloe, and newcomer Owen; Aidan’s former business partner Colin Flynn, as well as a assortment of townsfolk and busybodies. ALL ROADS LEAD TO YOU is a story of family, friendship, struggle and promise. The premise is engaging and entertaining: the romance is seductive and captivating: the characters are energetic, cautious and hopeful.
