Great read for those that love adventure, romance and horses! If you have a teenage daughter slip the book in her reading stack when she is not looking and hope she takes a few pointers from our herion on how a boyfriend shoud act!

I got this book to support a fellow TM, but ended up LOVING it!! I could not stop reading once I started. I literally stayed up all night just to finish it! I got a few hours of sleep & immediately searched for the other books in the series. I'm in the process of re-reading the series & this book is just as good the second time through as it was the first.

I started reading Antithesis with the intentions of doing just that, "start" but, it grabbed me from the beginning, and I couldn't put it down until I had finished. The characters are so real that their personalities jump from the pages.

I am so glad I can now have this on my phone to enjoy any time I have a free minute!

The reason I am writing is because I want to be sure readers know that this is my favorite book I have ever read. I read this when it first came out in 2009 and have read it many times and now have it on my cell phone to read any time I have a free moment.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love all the characters and think the author did a marvelous job describing each one, especially Elliott. I think she is a wonderful girl, although ficticious, but a lot of girls, including myself, can make of her an example because life choices are not easy to make. This is not only a great book for teenagers like me and young adults, it is also wonderful for all ages.

This book has great scenes that captivate the reader and put them into the magnificent world of foxhunting. Not only do you get to "see" what this is like, you also experience the bond that Eliott has with her horse. I love how Elliott felt riding Viva; she didn't need years of training with Viva because they had that wonderful connection.

The author also brought in romance in a unique way because in this book it isn't perfect as in most other books. Griffen, although handsome, does not always have all the right qualities, and Elliott must make hard decisions - which are not easy.

I also enjoyed the community; it was like a big family, and like in all families, there was drama, but I love how the characters value friendship, regardless of all - it is what matters to them in the end.

Oh, and I can't forget the great scenery which is painted in the Delta of the Mississippi River. Just lovely.

It is a great book that encourages us, the readers, to search for that passion that drives us. One of my favorite quotes is "bored people are stupid people, and stupid you are not!" All in all, this is a wonderful book. I really enjoy it and have read it over and over again.

I hope sharing my thoughts with you helps you decide about this book.

Oh dear, Mr. Desberg, I believe you read an earlier version that had lots of typos. But this latest smashwords should be clean. We must have uploaded the wrong one and have corrected it.

If you're not a fan of the Twilight-type of action/adventure/romance novel, then this is not the "read" you'd like.

Thank you, though, for taking the time to read the book and report your findings. It is one thing to disagree on content, but quite another to subject a reader to typos. Our apologies!

Terrible waste of time....Poorly written filled with typos...I kept looking for a redeeming quality and found none. This is designed for a pre-teen read.....

This book is definitely one to read! With thrilling tales of high flying action, once you pick this book up you will not be able to put it down! As it grips your imagination and especially your heart, you won't be able to flip the pages fast enough to keep up with the adventure! An instant classic of southern hospitality, love, and horsemanship!
