Blog Tour & Giveaway : Breaking Fences (The Breaking Series) by Juliana Haygert

Breaking Fences
The Breaking Series, #2
Juliana Haygert


June 13th, 2014




All Beatriz “Bia” Fernandes wants is to prove herself—to her family and friends—though it’s hard to prove anything with an overbearing father and three famous polo-playing older brothers. After her acceptance into college results in a heated family argument, the Brazilian girl leaves everything behind to find her own American dream. 

College life away from home is perfect until the people she believes to be her friends turn on her. With lies and rumors threatening to suffocate her, Bia turns to her only freedom. Riding. 

But one thing gets in the way of her escape. Garrett Blackwell and his bad cowboy attitude. Working at the ranch is his obligation, bugging Bia is his newfound hobby. His thick skin and easy grin don’t hide what Bia already knows—this misunderstood and lonely cowboy fights his own demons. Brushing horses’ coats and mucking out stalls shouldn’t be this sexy, and it isn’t long before he becomes a part of her distraction. 

However, escaping won’t solve her problems, and it’s up to Bia to break down the fences around her and prove her strength—not to her family and friends, but to herself … and for Garrett. Because standing on her own doesn’t have to mean standing alone.

**Companion novel of Breaking the Reins. Can be read out of order.**

Breaking the Reins (The Breaking Series, #1)

Breaking Fences (The Breaking Series, #2)


When I first read Breaking the Reins by Juliana Haygert I was extremely happy to discover not only a new author, but also a series that was like a breath of fresh air. It's not every day that we read about sexy Polo players and horses. When you pick up this series you will definitely fall in love with both. Yes, the horses in this series have a je ne sais quoi that pulls you in as well. 

Breaking Fences is Beatriz ''Bia'' Fernandes journey. Bia wants to take a step towards freedom by detaching herself from her family. She has dreams and she wants to build her own future. When she leaves her family home for Colorado, to attend College, she has no idea what is in store for her. The American college experience is not at all what she expected it to be. It's not without drama, tears and betrayals that Bia's starts her new journey. When she comes face-to-face with Garrett Blackwell she knows she's in trouble. When she's with him she wants more, but being with Garrett is easier said than done. Will they be able to overcome the obstacles that are thrown at them? 

I'm so excited about this new installment in the Breaking Series that I don't even know where to start?!?!?!?! Well, first of all, I want to mention that this book can be read as a standalone, but I totally encourage you to read Breaking the Reins. OMG!!! You don't want to miss Mr. Leo Fernandes *Swoon* Okay ... back to Bia and Garrett's story. I absolutely loved Bia in Breaking the Reins and it did not change in Breaking Fences. Sometimes when you connect with supporting characters in a story your expectations are set high for when their turn comes along. Juliana Haygert exceeded all of my expectations with Bia's story! Fantastic work!

Bia and Garrett had an amazing chemistry! I connected with both of them from the very beginning and what they were feeling for each other was sweet, passionate and heartwarming. I was cheering for my girl Bia since book one of this series and when Garrett enters the picture I can't help but smile. He's the kind of man that made her swoon and drove her nuts all at the same time! I won't deny that he drove me nuts too!! I can think of one particular scene that I yelled ''Noooooo!!! How dare you?!?!?! Don't do this to me her!!!'' But few were the moments where he made me mad so I forgave him .. lol!!! I loved how we saw them both deal with their families and how they took a step towards the future that they really wanted. They grew has a couple, but also on a personal level. My heart broke for Bia when all the rumors started to come out about her. It was really mean what they did to her. I wish I could of been there to give her a hug or just show her my support. My heart broke as well for Garrett. His family situation is very complicated. He's sweet, hardworking and totally deserved to be loved. He absolutely understood the meaning of the world love with Bia. They are sooo freakin' cute together! Oh, and hot! That first kiss that they shared was CALIENTE!!!

You can't help but fall in love with the fantastic characters in this series. Not only do the main characters pull you into the story, but the supporting characters as well. I hated some of the characters once again just like I did in the first book. I don't want to give anything away about the story, but two specific characters will drive you nuts!!! Seriously!!!! 

Ok! Let's discuss horses ... Yes, Horses!!! First, it was Argus and now Midnight. The connection that the characters have with their horses is amazing!!!! Every scene is tender and heartwarming! I can't get enough of this series and I can't wait to see who is next!


I give, Breaking Fences, by Juliana Haygert 4.5 delightful, exciting, sexy, fascinating stars!
