Review - Racing Savannah by: Miranda Kenneally




They’re from two different worlds.

He lives in the estate house, and she spends most of her time in the stables helping her father train horses. In fact, Savannah has always been much more comfortable around horses than boys. Especially boys like Jack Goodwin—cocky, popular and completely out of her league. She knows the rules: no mixing between the staff and the Goodwin family. But Jack has no such boundaries.

With her dream of becoming a horse jockey, Savannah isn’t exactly one to follow the rules either. She’s not going to let someone tell her a girl isn’t tough enough to race. Sure, it’s dangerous. Then again, so is dating Jack…

Miranda Kenneally, you have done it again. Racing Savannah completely met all the standards I held it to and has easily become one of my favorites rivaling Catching Jordan. I just loved the story, the romance, the issues, the racing... Just loved it all!

I loved Jack the moment we meet him. He's tall, sexy, and has blonde hair and baby blues. Yes, you can tell he's the "rich kid" and knows it, but you can also tell that he has a heart and another fun side that Savannah easily finds her way into. Savannah on the other side is one of Jack's workers and is determined to be a jockey some day. She's small and outspoken with flaming red hair. I absolutely loved watching these two push and pull against each other. I honestly wasn't sure if these two would make it, but I kept hoping for the best.

Another important thing about this book is the idea of class and social standing. It weaves in and out of story in multiple ways and I think Kenneally does it flawlessly. I also loved all the side characters like Savannah's family, Vanessa and Rory. Rory was absolutely hilarious and I am so glad he played a large role in the book. And I gotta say, I adored the horse aspect and I loved Star!

Overall, Kenneally hit another grand slam with this one. I adore the cover art, I adored all the characters, and I adored the story. Can not wait for Kenneally's next book because I definitely can not get enough of this world!
