If you haven't figured out that Heather loves a good pony play story yet, you haven't seen my reviews of Stable Hand and Ponyboy. She devoured the final (for now) Braided Crop Ranch book, Dark Horse in one sitting... and this time you also get a second opinion from Marie!
From the blurb:
Dark Horse was everything from Stable Hand and Ponyboy, but more! It not only brings together Adam and Henry, but it revisits Noah, Luke and Jenson, Owen and Kamal and several other ponies who've been side characters in the books.
This book blends past angst and present feelings really well, and offers flashbacks to the very first session of the BCR. I typically don't like flashbacks in books, but AE Lister crafts them as daydreams and memories and it fits flawlessly into the narrative. This book is a beautiful second chance romance!
As with the other books in the series, I devoured Dark Horse in one sitting and I plan to re-read it again because I know there's even more under the surface that I didn't glean in the first pass.
This book sets the scene for a new generation of Ponies, Trainers and Stable Hands at the BCR and I hope that AE Lister will tell their stories again in the future!
