"Perfect book for the beach." --Library Journal
World-renowned polo player and global face of Ralph Lauren, Nacho Figueras dives into the world of scandal and seduction with a new fiction series set in the glamorous, treacherous world of high-stakes polo competition.
Georgia never wanted to be a jetsetter. A plain old country vet was fine for her. But one distress call from her best friend and the next thing she knows she's neck deep in the world of polo's most elite international players--complete with designer dresses, fine champagne and some of the most gorgeous thoroughbreds she's ever seen. Some of the most gorgeous men too...
Alejandro Del Campo needs his team to win the season's biggest polo tournament or else he's not sure how much longer they're going to be in business. What he doesn't need is some sassy new vet telling him how to run his business--and distracting him at every turn. But as they come closer and closer to the championship match, it soon becomes clear that Alejandro wants to win Georgia just as much as the tourney trophy. But can he ever convince her his world is where she truly belongs?

Read this book quickky,. Engaged, entertained, romantic, and wanting more.
Format: Print Arc Though the story was good, I had a difficult time delving into the story and having it "take off" for me. Alejandro was sweet and sexy yet he was too dependent on what his friends told him and how he let them affect his decisions. Georgia was stepping out of her comfort zone yet she stood her ground when she needed to. If you enjoy a romance with a ton of twists and turns that will leave you with a fun hea then I recommend checking out this story.
Georgia is a vet specializing in horses. She is invited by her friend to go to polo matches in Florida. She sees that one of the polo ponies is not walking right and she unconventionally stops the match. Alejandro, owner of the horse, realizes she is right and asks her to be the assistant vet for his team. Neither wants to get involved with someone they work with but attraction has other ideas. I enjoyed this story. I liked the glimpse into high society and the polo lifestyle. I liked Georgia and Alejandro. Both had baggage. They needed to learn to communicate better. Alejandro learns the price of his hanging onto his baggage when he almost loses Georgia and his daughter. I liked the secondary characters. They are an interesting mix. I'm looking forward to getting better insight into them in the next books of the series.
A fun read that had me finishing the book in one sitting! I just loved the characters, the polo world was fascinating, and the story had a wonderful pace – which is why I never put the book down once I started it! Georgia and Alejandro were such great characters. Georgia is down to earth and real, definitely not someone who comes from money or privilege, but can hold her own around both. Alejandro is broody, moody, and seems to have forgotten what it is to have fun. He’s still reeling from the loss of his wife and is buried under the responsibility of running the family business now that his father has passed. Even though both Georgia and Alejandro fight the attraction between them, you just know that some things can’t be denied…and it was so much fun watching Alejandro lose his cool when it came to Georgia. I also loved that Georgia always seemed to know what Alejandro needed…and how he could never quite seem to resist her. I also loved the other characters in this book. The entire Del Campo family was great and I’m looking forward to both Sebastian’s and Antonia’s book to find out more about them. The other supporting characters added a lot of depth and color to the story, from Georgia’s best friend Billy and his boyfriend Beau, to Alejandro’s mother, and of course the mean rich girl Cricket who wants Alejandro for herself. All of these characters and the few plot turns/twists really helped to shape Georgia and Alejandro’s story. Overall this was a great read that I really enjoyed – perfect for a day at the beach or a rainy day! I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
