For four years, Silas Anderson has fought the urge to chase Mirabelle Sutton, knowing his rejection is what caused her to run. She left the ranch, a shy, inexperienced teenager, but the bold, confident woman who’s returned is so much more than his best friend’s little sister. She exceeds his every dream.
But life on a ranch stops for nothing, not even death, and proving to Mirabelle she’s more than enough woman to handle a cowboy is a challenge.
Heartbreak had driven her away. Tragedy brings her home. And before she runs again, Silas needs to figure out how to convince her the only way she’ll be riding off into the sunset is with him by her side
Holy Hot Cowboy!
Silas is book one in the Sutton Ranch series by Taryn Plendl. This was also the first book I have read by this author and it will not be the last! I am absolutely in love with this book! These characters broke my heart and mended it back together with all the squishy moments littered throughout.
Mirabelle Sutton has been in love with her brother’s best friend for as long as she can remember. After Silas Anderson rejected her, she ran. She did everything in her power to stay gone when she went off to college, but some feelings you can’t outrun and some outcomes you can’t control.
Silas regrets not telling Mirabelle how he really felt before he ended up driving her away. Now, Mirabelle is back home after her brother’s tragic death and she is nothing like the shy girl that left four long years ago. This time around, Silas will fight for what he wants. If only she wasn’t so stubborn.
The tension crackled between Silas and Mira like burning embers ready to combust. There was a whole lot of miscommunication in this book. At times, I just want to shake these two.
“Listen to me, little girl. If you think for a minute you can waltz right back here and put your spoiled princess tiara back on, you’re mistaken….”
I loved the bond between Silas, Ryke and Nate. I’m sure they not only worked hard, but played harder. I can’t wait to read Nate and Ryke’s books. I highly recommend this book! Although I wish there was a little more angst and a lot more pages, I’m sure you will fall for these sweet alpha cowboys just as hard as I did.
