    I enjoyed this book's pace, characters, and consistent "will-they-won't-they" drama. I enjoyed the horses the best and cried at a funeral, and again at a birth. The characters are well drawn, there is conflict and a buck-shot leprechaun. It has funny moments, tear-jerking moments and everything in between. Nice fluff before bed that won't give you nightmares, but might make you want to research wild ponies. I enjoyed this book's pace, characters, and consistent "will-they-won't-they" drama.

    This is D. Jackson Leigh's second novel, and I could tell that she learned a lot from the first one and improved her writing skills. Long Shot is a solid read that starts with a fast-paced, fun first chapter. It does have a few inconsistencies and coincidences, but it's still an entertaining read for a few hours. This is D.

    Really loved this story. Some bits were predictable but it is, after all, a romance! I really loved the sub-plot story of the grandmother and her experience it added so much, giving the book a much deeper and more robust storyline. Will definitely read this one again!

    Had not read Bareback prior to reading Longshot. Capable of being a standalone book, although, I will go back and read the rest of the series. Tory is a very interesting character and I feel sorry for her in parts of the story. I also love the secondary romance.

    I rarely regret no half stars - keeps my world simple, but this could be a 3.5. I wasn't crazy about main characters. More angst and less action than Bareback. But I LOVED the Grandma Lori/MG side story. I rarely regret no half stars - keeps my world simple, but this could be a 3.5. I wasn't crazy about main characters.

    Excellent I loved Long Shot. What’s not to like? Beautiful women, an elderly reunited couple and horses. Just a great story.

    This is unfortunate. I thought I'd written something for this one before now. It's tougher to do so when days have gone by, 3 to be exact, and I'm 52% into the third book in this 'series'. I'll start with that, with that '' around series. Skylar and Jessica are in this book as well, and in the third, but this is one of those 'switching the main characters' type series. Also tending to use some relatively minor character from the previous book as the 'star' of the new. Well, in this one the main c This is unfortunate.

Also tending to use some relatively minor character from the previous book as the 'star' of the new. Well, in this one the main character is Tory, the veterinarian from the first book. Tory dates two women more or less at the same time in this book. Mostly without telling either about the situation. It's vaguely 'okay' since Leah kept saying, over and over again, that she just can't have a relationship right now. And kept pushing Tory away. Despite obvious feelings both share for each other. Leah can't have a relationship, apparently, because she's only in the area long enough to put her mother into an assisted living place (she's got dementia, the mother that is), and find a new job. Elsewhere. As a reporter. Tory is also dating someone new to the area, an artist-in-residence at the local college. Bridgette. To a certain extent I felt two things about Bridgette, 1) she might be an interesting character; 2) my she's cold. She's kind of an emotional basket case in the third book, so my second thought was wrong. I've read 52% of the next book, as I think I mentioned, but I mention that again because I just now recalled that I kind of despised Leah when I first meet her. I'd forgotten that when she turned up in the third book. I didn't particularly like her sense of humor, her attitude or anything, really, about her. Playfully pointing a shotgun at someone who had just been shot by said shotgun, while giggling about wishing she had handcuffs so she could live a particular fantasy out in real life . . . which of the two women are the ones with some mental problems? Leah or her mother? I mean, shesh. That's just . . . disturbing. The three books, at least so far as I can tell from the little I've read of the third, seem to have a certain formula. All three books seem to involve women, at least one in each book, who are 'players'. Either they, or the person they pursue, can't imagine settling down into a relationship. Skylar doesn't think she deserves to be in a relationship (book 1), and is a player. Leah doesn't want to be/can't see herself adding the "problems" of being in a relationship, while Tory, despite this going against her normal nature, gets honorary player status by dating two women at the same time. And then Marc, in the third book, is both a player, and someone who doesn't fancy they'll ever be in a relationship (plus she has a massive chip on her shoulder, and self doubt, like Skylar); Bridgette doesn't appear to be a player but she does suddenly find excuses to make her flings just be flings, and flees entanglements. She's got reasons, but . . it's fun to just word things the way I did. So basically there's been only one character I've liked from the beginning, and while the other main characters have, mostly, grown on me (I've not reached that yet with the third book), I still find it interesting how much I dislike most of the characters in this series. At least initially. Except for Tory. Oh. I forgot Tory and Jessica were in a relationship before Skylar hooked up with Jessica. So, that happened again in book two. There it involve Tory, Leah, and Bridgette. I keep forgetting if that's Bridget or Bridgette, but bah. That specific theme hasn't, as of yet, reared it's ugly head in book three. At least I only recall two people involved in it, romantic wise. Well, this was a weird little write-up.

    I really like the series of Bareback, Longshot and Every Second Counts. Longshot is my favorite. I like the good girl gets the girl as opposed to the bad girl always getting the girl. I like that Tory does all the right things but still struggles to get what/who she wants. I read a lot of romaances and can honestly say Longshot is in my top three fav's of all. The chracters are well developed and the sex is hot!

    I liked Bareback a little more, but this was still great too. As much as I enjoyed the three main characters and seeing who Tory fell in love with and how, I was just about brought to tears by the side story with Gram and Willie.
