The last time I saw Declan St. James was at our rehearsal dinner. That was shortly before he jilted me at the altar. To avoid the swarm of whispers and finger pointing every time I dared to show my face in public, I fled two hours south to Atlanta and never looked back. Over the last decade, I’d planned hundreds of scenarios about how our next meeting would go down. The expletives I’d hurl at him. Which knee I might use to annihilate his balls. Which dimpled cheek on his ridiculously handsome face I would send a stinging slap across.
But being elbow deep in a cow’s ass was not one of them.
Normally, I didn’t get up close and personal to a bovine’s rectum. At least not since veterinarian school. But desperate times found me back home to attend my grandfather’s funeral, who happened to be the town’s large animal vet. Those two facts had left me wading through manure in Roy Wallace’s pasture to care for a distressed heifer.
While time and maturity seemed to have changed him from the boy I knew, I still wasn’t falling for his charm. Or his hard, chiseled body. Or ass you could eat dinner off of.
No, I wasn’t going back down that street again. Unfortunately, Declan didn’t seem to get the message. Instead, he seemed as stubborn as he ever was and ready for a fight. It’ll be the fight of his life for me to let him back in my heart.

Review by Nancy VanSpunky
Have you ever loved someone with all of your heart and gotten it crushed? The aftermath is never pretty. This story is about Peyton. She left her small town with a broken heart and pursued her dreams of becoming a vet in the big city. But every time she was in any kind of relationship the ugly past reared its head. Peyton comes home to Hayesville to lay her beloved grandfather to rest. Day one she runs into Declan St. James. Day 1! You can’t escape your past in a small town. Declan is determined to apologize to Peyton and forge some kind of relationship with her. Peyton inherits her grandfather’s veterinary practice. She’s home to stay. This book is about hurt, and love, and family. It’s about how beautiful things can blossom from ashes.
I always LOVE Katie Ashley’s writing because she draws you into the story. She makes you family. Reining Her in is no different. This is a sweet, sweet love story. And there’s some good humor, as well. Definitely worth the read! 4 stars for Reining Her In.
