Bits of Me by Meghan Scott

Warning: Contains content for those 18 years of age or older

Bits of Me by Megnan Scott is about a young woman, Melanie Wainright, who recently moved from New York City to Kentucky after a break up with a controlling ex.  She meets jumper trainer Jake Hamilton, and the sparks fly from their first encounter.

As a horsewoman, I love everything horse related, especially western style/horse related romances.  Bev Petterson is the standard by which I judge all horse romances, so I had high hopes for this book.

My thoughts:

The chemistry between Jake and Melanie was smokin’ hot.  Their relationship also matured at a believable rate and their interactions were cute.  I liked that they could relate to one another and helped each other heal from painful pasts, but weren’t totally dependent on one another.  There were a couple scenes that were a bit unbelievable and hard to swallow.  I won’t tell you because we don’t do spoilers, but you’ll know them when you read them.

I enjoyed how close Melanie and Amy were.  You could tell that they’ve known each other for a long time. I did not however, enjoy how they addressed each other by “whore or slut.”  Some may find these terms between friends endearing but I found it distasteful.  I also found it hard to believe just by how Amy and Melanie acted and spoke, that they were mature professionals.  I thought them to be in their early twenties, not thirties.

I found the plot to be predictable and without any real surprises and the dialogue immature.  I think this book has promise, but the execution lacked a bit.

I did like some of the supporting characters like Abe.  I’d love to see something happen between him and his lady love.  That’s a story line that would be worth pursuing.
