      I received an advance copy of "Wild Horse Heart." It was amazing. I read it in one sitting (because I had to know what happened and totally fell in love with all of the characters). The writing and the story are beautiful. I'm not going to lie-there were some happy and sad (mostly happy) tears. It's a really special book.

      I love the storyline, the characters, and the way Katrina tells the story.I found the premise of the story really interesting! It was really fun to experience the whole process of Ria going through the audition process, getting cast, dealing with the joys, trials, and tribulations of being in a Hollywood blockbuster movie, and handling the aftermath of the completion of the film.I got connected to the characters very easily (Except Mark. I don’t fancy him at all. You’ll see why as you read). [...]

      My favorite stories hit that sweet spot between romance and women's fiction, and Katrina Ariel's Wild Horse Heart sits squarely in the middle of those worlds. When Ria Walsh lands her first movie role, she finally has the resources to leave her abusive husband and start over with her three beautiful children. Her fresh start comes complete with two men vying for her attention: Ria's charming and thoughtful director AND her sexy, all-too-confident costar. But Wild Horse Heart is as much about fin [...]

      With a main character who is down-to-earth and does not fit the Hollywood image of beauty, Wild Horse Heart encourages women to embrace their bodies that may have stretch marks and a few pounds more than they’d like, to love themselves and to chase their dreams. Ria is mercifully plucked out of a life of misery and an abusive marriage when a movie director hears her talented voice and offers her a leading role in his movie. She finally stands up to her husband, packs up her three children and [...]

      'Wild Horse Heart' was such a good book, I loved it! It had a love triangle, which I normally avoid, but the blurb caught my attention and thankfully I decided to give it a chance. I loved both Ben and Finn and could not decide which of them I wanted Ria to end up with. In the end I was happy with her choice, but I probably would have been just as happy had it been the other way around. Each man deserved Ria's love and I was heartbroken for the one she didn't choose. The storyline was exceptiona [...]

      Relatable and heartfelt, Wild Horse Heart is a pleasant read with a thrilling ending.I'm impressed with how this storyline follows not only Ria but also her on-set character, Josie. The book has a story-within-a-story feel to it, which can be a challenge to write.The wrap up of tension and conflict between Ria and her ex-husband, Mark, had me on the edge of my seat, cheering by the end. Gotta love horses! And, though I avoid love triangles, I'm pleased with the choice Ria made between Ben and F [...]

      I got bogged down over with the December holidays and forgot to pick this book back up until this week. Then I tore right through it! I really enjoyed the characters and the author's love of horses that shines though. The scenes of the open country were so vivid, I want to visit. I liked how despite being insecure and worn down by her abusive husband, Ria has this vault of strength that works to edify her. She doesn't really need the men in her life in order to exist. Rather, she's enough by her [...]

      Wild Horse Heart is a lovely story written in a fantastic way. The moment I started reading I got caught up in the life of Ria Walsh, an incredibly strong woman and a mother of three. She does not have an easy life, but she always keeps hopeful and is there for her children when they need her. The book is written in a way that makes it impossible to put it down, and I flew trough it. There is not a moment it gets boring. Also, the book has a nice typeface which makes it comfortable to read, and [...]

      This was a fun, light read.It is perfect for your next beach vacay (anyone else missing summer already, even though it's only September?!).Or, it's an absolutely perfect read for those first rainy days of fall and winter. Stay in bed, read it right through. That's what I did! Fun, light, conscious, hopeful, with just enough drama to keep me from putting it down to get my next coffee!

      This book lovingly follows the adventure of a power mom as she suddenly goes from overworked and under appreciated to creatively stimulated, challenged, fulfilled and adored. It’s an enticing journey, the stuff of fantasy, and when it’s over you’re ready for a part two.
