Why I Read It
I love stepping outside of the norm and I was interested in reading about the horse racing scene.

Murphy’s Law was a bit different than my normal read, but it was interesting. I loved seeing into the racing world and becoming with familiar with all the terms knowing that this is something close to the author’s heart. It was also a bit long than my normal read, but there is something to be said about a book that really details/documents every step of a character’s journey and Murphy’s Law did just that.
Seth Remington is the stereotypical rich brat, but he will quickly worm his way into your heart with his million…and I mean MILLION questions. Even from the beginning you can tell his heart his good deep down. I love to see when a character finds their passion.
Katie is the heroine I love to read. Tough as nails, takes no crap, and works her butt off to do what she loves. She is what is right with cotemporary romance.
I really loved the chemistry between the two. Honestly, it is some of the best I have read. It felt so real. I think I can attribute this to the character’s being just a bit older than my normal. All I know is that THIS is romance at its finest in the chemistry department.
Again, this book was a bit of an age jump for me, but it was very beneficial. I loved stepping outside of the college world. The interactions, camaraderie, and the big grand gesture the 80s would be proud of are just a few of the reasons I would recommend this book.
