Racing Savannah (Hundred Oaks) 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…

While racing Savannah that was some pretty heavy issues including are losing her mother. she also takes on some of the responsibility for her family they are pretty low income and her step mom is pregnant and having a hard time working social take on some of these shows that her step mom supposed to do. this really told me a lot about Savannah's character that she was very giving and she had a really good heart that she wanted to help. I also liked how determined she was and that she learn to dream and she learned sometimes helping herself in the short term will help family and friends in the long term as far as her dreams and aspirations and finally entertaining the thought of college for herself.
Racing Savannah also dealt with some classes since the romantic interest jack is currently working under his father learning to take over running their farm which entails breeding horses racing horses and the care of them. Jack and his family are really well off they have people to take care of their house their horses and all sorts of things and Savannah and her family are hired by Jack's father.
I like Jack, he really seemed to bond with Savannah and he really respected hard time because Savannah just had a way with words of understanding them and figuring out what they want and how to get them to perform. there's a lot of chemistry between Jack and Savannah but Jack is also just learning to take over the business and he very much considers what his dad would think and how he would react to basically dating the help. His family is also in negotiations with another Pharm and he has kind of been pushed up on the daughter and order to help seal a business deal and this also affects the kind of how I saw Jack. But I love his character development even though for quite a while in the book I kind of question his motives and if he was going to be the man that Savannah needed him to be set of just two people who have a lot of chemistry and then she kind of moves on to someone else but I really appreciate how it was done and I ended up liking that romantic angle by the end of the book.
I would read more of the Hundred Oaks, but am a little sad that horses won't be featured in the other books.
