‘Seven And A Half Minutes’ – written by Roxana Valea #BookReview @roxana_valea @rararesources

How did it all start?


Before Roxy found herself “Single in Buenos Aires,” she was a single girl in London in search of true love. The third installment of The Polo Diaries series takes us back to that time, and we follow Roxy as she hires a love coach to help her navigate the dating scene. But the love coach comes up with an unexpected assignment: reconnect to a long-forgotten passion. For Roxy this means horses. Within weeks, she finds herself playing polo, thanks to a series of unforeseen events.

Torn between her desire to become the best polo player she can be and the dream of falling in love, Roxy steps fully into the exciting and demanding world of polo, where injury and recovery mix with hard training, and where celebrating the victory of a tournament comes at a high price. Will Roxy eventually become the polo player she dreams to be? And with polo being such a demanding sport, can there be any space left for love?

My review

Roxy is looking for love, like everyone else. In London she reconnects with a passion she long lost, horses.
Suddenly she finds herself learning to play polo, and most important of all, she truly enjoys it!
She is training hard, trying to become the best polo player she can be, but does this give her enough space to still find love?

Having read the previous parts the series, I know what Roxy has been through.
But I was always curious about how Roxy actually found her passion for polo and how it all started.

The way Roxy felt before she found her passion for polo, is a feeling many people have. That makes it so recognizable for each and every one of us.
The way her situation is described, could be applied for everyone searching for love.
And when Roxy found polo, I was truly happy for her, as she found something what made her truly happy.

But this story is also about the struggling… it’s not that because you found something you truly love, that that is the end of it.
The trainings show that when you are truly passionate about something, you have to fight and work hard for it. Not everything is handed on a silver platter.
and if you cannot find the courage to work hard, is it then a real passion, or is it only a fling?

Roxana enlightened us again more in the world of polo, the struggles and the work, and also in her world.
But also about the satisfaction in finding something that makes you happy, and that love can be found in several different aspects!
