[Release Blitz + Review + Giveaway] Rein In by Anne Jolin

Title: Rein In
Series: Willow Bay Stables #3
Author: Anne Jolin
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: October 25, 2016


Aurora Daniels is the bleeding heart of her family. With a gift and a passion for helping to heal others, she has a legacy of kindness and gratitude—a modern-day saint.

Every Sunday since she turned eighteen, Aurora has driven three hours into the city of Edmonton, Alberta, where she volunteers at an equine facility that rehabilitates troubled youth by working with horses. With their increasing success rate, the facility is expanding to foster violent parolees in hopes of a more effective release into society.

Assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder—that’s what it says under the name on his sheet. Rhys White is released on good behaviour and promises to remain under contract for community service at the Equine for Hearts facility for a court-ordered period of twelve months.

Willow Bay’s saint may have stumbled across the one sinner who can’t be saved from himself.

Will Aurora be able to rein in Rhys’s quest for revenge before it’s too late? Or will she spend the rest of her life loving a man behind bars?



He was interrupted by the sound of a convertible pulling into the space next to us. The speakers were blaring some kind of racket that made my brain feel like I was going to have a seizure.

Some guy folded out from behind the wheel and Dirt nearly choked on his chew at the sight of him.

He looked like an asshole with his pink sweater folded over his shoulders and one of those polo shirts that looked like it belonged to a rowing club. When he rounded the hood of the car, Fun Bobby’s upper lip curled in disgust. I fought back a grin. This ass hat was wearing loafers.

“Morning, baby girl.” Glitch hollered over the sound of the car stereo.

I let my eyes follow his and land on her blonde hair in the passenger seat. It was light, almost white in the sun and so long it fell well past her shoulders.

The loafer guy held open her door and long legs stretched into my line of vision. She wore those cut of jean shorts, the kind a girl in a country song would wear, but hers were more tasteful, covering the round curves of her ass completely but not hiding them either.

Stretched over her chest was the token white volunteer shirt, she was here to work.

When she stood in front of him, she slung a backpack over her shoulder and waved in our direction.

If you’d ever seen an angel after a bad dream, it felt like that in the air when she smiled.

He pulled her into his chest by her upper arm and dove into her mouth.

My chest rumbled and Glitch widened his eyes in my direction.

I hadn’t seen or felt a woman since I was a teenager and it almost hurt my heart to look at her. She was the picture of all the years that I gave away. She was a breathing memory of everything I missed out on.

Stuffing my hands in my pockets, I let loafers live his dream against her lips.

What did I have against the puke anyway? Let him be happy.


4 Stars!

Great Addition to the Series!

Boy oh boy, I am becoming quite a fan of the Willow Bay series. I'd read the first book in July of 2015 and unfortunately missed the second and third. Once I got wind of them this year, I instantly devoured them both. Anne Jolin does a great job at keeping the stories short, yet packed with everything you'd want in a romance.

In this third book, the yougest Daniels sister gets her chance in the spotlight. Aurora is the bleeding heart of the family, the girl always giving others a second and third chance. She is the perfect fit for the equestrian prisoner rehab program she voulunteers at on the weekends.

Aurora is a strong girl, even with that mushy heart. She knows her over-protective dad and brother aren't going to want her working at the rehab center full time for the summer, but this is something she wants and isn't going to let anybody stop her.

Upon meeting the new batch of parolees, Aurora is instantly drawn to the handsome and broody Rhys. He comes off tough as nails, however as Aurora tries to get to know him, she realizes there is much more to him than a felony charge.

“Someone with a light as bright as yours shouldn’t spend her days in the dark.”

Rhys was written well. Like Owen, I instantly connected with him and couldn't wait to see what his story was. I agreed with Aurora and wanted him to have a second chance. Deep down he seemed like a good, loyal man that had earned it.

"Rhys was proud of my heart, but I was in awe of his. It made for quite a beautiful recipe of getting lost in someone."

The book is well written and in the same fashion as the two before, we get a little bit of everything in a few pages. We also get to interact with London, Owen, their spouses, as well as Mr. Daniels. I love how the entire family is living and working together now. Full of action, romance and a little bit of sexy with Aurora and Rhys along with a little epilogue to wrap things up.





I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada.

I never expected to be an author. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.

If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t.

Mad love,
Anne Jolin
