If you have a young adult reader in your life and you are not sure what to get them during the upcoming Holiday season, look no further than Blaze of Glory. Actually – if you have a reader of any kind in your life – this is the book to get them.
At first I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book. I’m not particularly into horses. But while the book does kind of revolve around them, it was not enough to bore me by any means. By the time I got halfway through this book, I could not put it down and by the time I was a couple chapters from the end I was wishing that it never had to end! Does anyone else get like that? The book is just so good you want to jump inside the story and never leave it? That’s how I felt with this book.
It took me a while to get into this book and I will tell you why – sometimes I start my review posts before the book is finished and I add in the book info, images, links, etc. That way once I write my review of the book I don’t have to do all that extra stuff and remember what day I wanted to publish it on (it makes it easier if I end up writing the review somewhere other than my desk where I leave my notes on what is getting posted when). When I was looking on Amazon one of the reviews gave away what Tea’s forbidden passion was. While I was a few chapters in and already had a inkling of what was to come – finding out this “spoiler” of sorts, really made me just want to get to THAT part of the book, but it was not to come until much later.
For this reason – I will not be mentioning the other passion. All I have to say is once it shows up near the second part of the book the story just completely consumes you. I had my eyes glued to the computer screen for several hours and did not want to deal with anyone who was trying to talk to me.
Seriously this was one of the best books I have read this year – and if you frequent my blog you know that I read a LOT of books.

About the Book
Some fires can consume you.
Last year, I had it all. Two jumpers on the show circuit, a lot of wins, and a lot of attention – the good kind. But now I have nothing. My life is circling the drain. The only spark of light that exists for me is my new, forbidden passion. If my stepfather finds out, he will kill me. My twin brother, my only blood relative in the world, has already begged me not to. But I can’t help myself. If it can’t be horses, it has to be this…
